Five Companies That Came To Win This Week


Dell Buying Wyse, Clerity

On Monday Dell agreed to acquire Wyse Technology for an undisclosed sum, adding desktop virtualization technology (a hot market) to its cloud client computing capabilities and enterprise solution portfolio. One day later it acquired Clerity Solutions, a provider of technology and services that help customers migrate from legacy systems to more modern technology.

The moves continue Dell's aggressive acquisition spree, which just two weeks ago included Internet security system vendor SonicWall, and are transforming the once-hardware-centric company into a broad-based enterprise IT provider.

The Wyse acquisition, expected to close in Dell's second quarter, also brings Wyse Technology's 3,000 channel partners into the expanding Dell universe.
