Dell really does seem to be buying other companies left and right, so we can't help but wonder who will follow after Make Technologies.
That's right, since Clerity
were clearly not enough, Dell has signed a deal with Make for the full acquisition of the latter.
Make produces software and provides services related to end-to-end application portfolio transformation, automated application and code migration tools, reduction of custom code in legacy portfolios, application re-engineering and cost reduction for maintenance and management of legacy applications.
In other words, it comes up with means of making companies run their IT better.
Now that Dell practically owns everything Make ever came up with, the company can further expand its reach and customer base.
“The addition of Make Technologies and Clerity Solutions to Dell Services positions us to lead in the fast-growing applications modernization space,” said Steve Schuckenbrock, president, Dell Services.
“We have the capabilities to help customers with all their modernization needs—from re-hosting and re-platforming to code re-engineering. These offerings will enable Dell to support the thousands of commercial and public sector customers looking to migrate business-critical applications to open, standards-based architectures, including the cloud.”
Founded in 1999, Make Technologies has its headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia, and develops the TLM Enterprise Suite, among other things.
Its employees number about 100 and will become part of the Dell Services team after every business integration procedure is finished.
"The combination of Make Technologies and Dell provides the market with a single vendor solution for any modernization activity and is an exciting step in expanding growth opportunities for our core application modernization software and services," said Bill Bergen, president and CEO, Make Technologies, Inc.
"Together, with Dell's global reach, scale and reputation for customer support, Make's methodology and tools will become even more accessible to more customers struggling with the dilemma that surrounds legacy environments."
