Dell Is Going To Lean On EMC For Enterprise Solutions
"The intent with the merger is for EMC to become the enterprise solutions business for EMC and Dell, and it will be managed out of [EMC headquarters in] Hopkinton [Mass.]. Dell, in fact, has stated they are going to take some of their key enterprise assets and move them into EMC, so we, EMC proper, will be able to maintain, stay highly focused on the enterprise business segment. By the same token, imagine the strengths of Dell in the SMB and other parts of the market where they are so powerful, and we can take advantage of those as well. Structurally, we are going to be in great shape moving forward. In fact, our enterprise solutions group will now become double the size. Today, our enterprise business loosely is about a $16 billion business. We take the Dell assets, fold that in, we are $30 billion-plus business. So overnight, we are double in size. Structurally, the fact that EMC will really be driving the enterprise business, I think is very critical. That’s No. 1."
