The combination will create the world's largest privately-controlled, integrated technology company, bringing together expertise in digital transformation, software-defined data centre, hybrid cloud, converged infrastructure, mobile and security. It will be a leader in the USD 2 trillion IT market with complementary product portfolios, sales teams and R&D investment strategies.
