Dell continues acquisition strategy with Wyse deal

In the latest of its strategic investments to expand its enterprise technology and services capabilities, Dell today said it has completed its acquisition of Wyse Technology, a provider of cloud client computing.

Financial terms of the deal were not reported in the May 25 announcement. The deal is the most recent acquisition for Dell over the last three-years as it has added more capabilities to its traditional PC business.

Last month the computer giant signed a definitive agreement to acquire the San Jose, Calif.-based company.

The Dell merge the Wyse portfolio with current Dell desktop virtualization offerings, data center products such as servers and storage, and Dell’s services division. The consolidation will provide customers and partners with a single vendor that can address a full range of their cloud computing and desktop virtualization needs, the announcement added. 

Dell said it plans to preserve Wyse’s channel offerings and all existing Wyse channel partners will be eligible for our PartnerDirect Program.

The computer giant also said it will combine the best of both companies’ channel deal registration programs, extend this new deal registration program to all partners, and introduce a program in which partners can grow and nurture a customer relationship.

“We believe the Dell Wyse capabilities, combined with our previous desktop virtualization offerings and the strength of the Dell enterprise portfolio, provides the most comprehensive and competitive DVS solution available today.” said Jeff Clarke, Dell vice chairman and president of Global Operations and End User Computing Solutions.

Dell Inc., of Round Rock, Texas, ranks No. 15 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
