What you need to know about the DXC-Vencore-KeyPoint deal
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This piece was updated Feb. 16 to reflect the deal's updated timeline for closure)
The three-way merger of DXC Technology's U.S. government business, Vencore and KeyPoint is one of the bigger deals in the market this year.
While closure won't come until 2018, it potentially will have a bigger impact that even DXC’s creation earlier this year when Computer Sciences Corp. merged with the services business of HPE Enterprise.
I say that because the CSC-HPE deal did not create a new entity for the federal market because CSC had already jettisoned its government business with the creation of CSRA. The CSC-HPE deal just rebranded HPE’s government services as DXC.
But now that the DXC federal business is combining with Vencore and KeyPoint Government Solutions, it is creating something truly new.
We’ve written extensively about the deal in the week since it was announced but the deal doesn’t close until May. So there will be more coverage to come before then and beyond.
But consider this post a gateway to our coverage on the deal. As we do more stories, we’ll add them here.
