1. CSC, HPE Enterprise Services Merge To Form DXC

CSC closed its merger with HPE's Enterprise Services division on April 3, officially opening for business as DXC Technology, a $26 billion solution provider behemoth that ranks No. 11 on the CRN SP 500.

CSC and HPE initially announced the plan in May 2016, and throughout the rest of the year and into 2017 continued making preparations for the merger. The new company's operating structure and executive lineup was announced Feb. 2 and the DXC name was unveiled two weeks later. The deal was sealed March 27 when CSC shareholders gave their approval.

In October, DXC announced plans to excise its U.S. government business and initiate a merger with two other companies – Vencore and Keypoint – to create a 14,000-employee public sector powerhouse with security, cloud and analytics mastery. The split and merger are expected to close March 31, with the name of the new company yet to be determined.

DXC also acquired Logicalis SMC in October, aiming to bolster its scale and skills in the SaaS space.
