We reported on Dell buying Wyse and, now, we can say that the company doesn't mind making one acquisition after another, having also announced the buyout of Clerity.
Clerity makes services and means for modernizing applications, which is to say that it helps companies move from old hardware to new one and advises them on what and how it should be done.
Dell decided to buy it in full, not just for its own benefit, but also for that of its many customers.
Once Clerity is fully integrated, Dell will be able to come up with ways of helping its customers streamline processes, cope with growing data volumes, ease the transition to cloud-based storage, etc.
For instance, Clerity's re-hosting solutions make it easy for customers to transfer applications and work from legacy computing architectures to whatever new IT environment they are most comfortable with.
"The combination of Clerity and Dell provides tremendous growth opportunities for our core application modernization and re-hosting solutions, and rapidly expands our global reach and scale," said Brandon Edenfield, president, Clerity Solutions.
"Taking this step with Dell is a very natural progression for our business and offers customers access to world-class enterprise solutions and services offered by Dell Services."
Clerity was founded in 1994 and has its headquarters in Chicago, Illinois. It has 70 employees and will get some investments for its Services business. Whatever other terms the deal had was left unsaid.
"Unlike other providers, Dell remains committed to open architecture computing and to helping our customers implement optimal platforms for their applications," said Steve Schuckenbrock, president, Dell Services.
"Increasingly, these x86 platforms are enabling super-scale cloud environments, and the addition of Clerity gives us a clear advantage in helping customers modernize and migrate their applications off outdated hardware infrastructure to more current architectures. We are thrilled to welcome the Clerity team to Dell."
