Dell Technologies unites seven technology leaders – Dell, Dell EMC, Pivotal, RSA, Secureworks, Virtustream and VMware – in one company with the power to drive digital transformation and generate real results every day for the customers and people who partner with them.
Dell Technologies

At Dell Technologies, their purpose is to drive human progress, through greater access to better technology, for people with big ideas around the world. It’s a journey that began over a generation ago, in Michael Dell’s Texas University 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.

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. 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.

On September 7, 2016, Dell and EMC joined forces in the largest technology merger in history to become Dell Technologies. Dell Technologies unites seven technology leaders – Dell, Dell EMC, Pivotal, RSA, Secureworks, Virtustream and VMware – in one company with the power to drive digital transformation and generate real results every day for the customers and people who partner with them.
