Key Findings & Highlights
As a provider of data center hardware, Dell supported the growth of cloudby supplying intellectual property and hardware to help build productssuch as Azure and Google Cloud Platform.In 2009, Dell acquired Perot Systems, creating a Dell Services unit andenabling it to host customer data in its own data centers and to beginoffering private cloud hosting services. Perot Systems also brought anumber of application development skills such as Java and .Net that arestill the foundation of much cloud application development.Dell’s current cloud offerings span from consulting and advisory servicesthrough cloud migration services, to cloud management services. While ithas leveraged its infrastructure heritage to host private cloud servicesfrom its data centers, Dell has made the choice not to compete in thepublic cloud hosting space, instead developing alliances with major publiccloud providers.In March 2016, it was announced that Dell Services will be acquired byNTT DATA for $3.06bn. While specific details have not been fullyannounced, it’s assumed that the primary capabilities underpinning Dell’scloud infrastructure migration and management offerings will be managedby NTT DATA. NelsonHall believes that many of the software productscomplementary to these services, such as integration tool Boomi willremain with Dell. However, Dell Services has confirmed that some of itsvertically focused SaaS offerings, such as ones focused on healthcare,life sciences, and financial services sectors will remain with Dell Servicesand move to NTT DATA.
