Dell Technologies celebrates the first anniversary of its formation through the historic merger of Dell and EMC. In its inaugural year, the company formed a unified Dell and Dell EMC salesforce and created a US$35 billion (bn) Dell Technologies channel and global channel programme.
Apart from that, Dell EMC experienced an explosive revenue growth that reached nearly double its historical rates in underpenetrated accounts within the first half of 2017. This was fuelled by cross-selling servers, storage, client and converged infrastructure solutions.
Impressively, these milestones were achieved while rapidly paying down approximately US$9.5bn in debt, quickly completing three major business divestitures and continuing to invest aggressively in the most innovative technologies for customers.
Dell Technologies is also announcing that the world’s largest digital industrial company, GE, has signed a multi-year commitment to use Dell Inc. infrastructure and end-user computing solutions, making it one of the largest non-government contracts in Dell Technologies, Dell or EMC history. This collaboration is aimed to support GE’s ongoing digital transformation efforts, by naming Dell Inc. as the primary IT infrastructure supplier for GE.
“We set the bar high and exceeded our own expectations,” states Michael Dell, Chairmen and CEO of Dell Technologies. “We’ve made enormous strides this past year in serving the needs of our customers, from governments to fast-growing small businesses to many of the world’s largest enterprises who call Dell Technologies their most strategic IT partner. And we’re just getting started.”
