1. Dell Looks To Make History With EMC Acquisition
Dell in October unveiled bold plans to acquire storage king EMC in a $67 billion deal that transforms the onetime PC maker into a $90 billion enterprise computing powerhouse.
The deal -- the largest in the history of the IT business -- creates a new world order in the intensely competitive enterprise computing market. When the acquisition finally closes, which Dell said would likely happen between May and October 2016, Dell will be an enterprise superpower with a prominent position in nearly every key enterprise technology segment, including servers, storage, virtualization, networking, cloud computing services, security, big data and IT services.
