Four questions about a Dell-EMC merger
Dell forsaken a explosve on a craving IT marketplace Monday by announcing plans to buy storage hulk EMC for a whopping $67 billion. The understanding raises many questions; here are 4 of them.
Where’s a cloud?
Assuming it goes ahead, a understanding will make Dell one of a world’s largest IT vendors, usually behind IBM and Microsoft, yet Dell will still have small to offer in a fast-growing area of cloud services. Oracle, IBM and Hewlett-Packard are all building out cloud offerings with varying degrees of success, yet it’s not something Dell has focused on, and shopping EMC won’t change that. How most that matters is an open question.
“This understanding creates Dell a distant stronger actor in a normal clarity of IT record vendors. The problem is, a destiny belongs to non-traditional players,” says Glenn O’Donnell, a investigate executive during Forrester.
