WHO THEY ARE
Their story began with two technology companies and one shared vision: to provide greater access to technology for people around the world. Dell Technologies is instrumental in changing the digital landscape the world over, fueled by the desire to drive human progress through technology.
The Story of the World-Record-Breaking Deal
At Dell Technologies, their purpose is to drive human progress, through greater access to better technology, for people with big ideas around the world.
The masterminds behind industry giants
It’s a journey that began over a generation ago, in their founder Michael Dell’s University of Texas dorm room. He believed he could provide customers with more powerful technology at a better value by rethinking how computers were manufactured and delivered.
Around the same time, Richard Egan and Roger Marino started EMC; first delivering compatible memory boards with higher reliability, then delivering data storage solutions scalable to enterprise level.
Spearheading a technological revolution
These journeys completely changed the way the world sources, builds and sells technology.
For Dell, it was selling technology directly to people, rather than through retail outlets. For EMC, it was Symmetrix, a data storage solution that transformed the way data centers operated in large enterprises. By the new millennium, both Dell and EMC were market leaders.
Collaborating with visionaries
EMC expanded into new markets to capitalize on new opportunities. They looked to like-minded innovators creating breakthroughs of their own. VMware, RSA, Pivotal and Virtustream were welcomed into the EMC family to form a technological powerhouse.
