Making history again

Now a private company, Dell accelerates its long-term growth strategy and focuses with a single-minded purpose on customers.

  • Michael Dell and private equity firm Silver Lake Partners buy back Dell from public shareholders to accelerate our solutions strategy and to focus on the innovations and long-term investments with the most customer value.
  • We continue to invest in our strategy with the acquisition of award-winning enterprise cloud management software and services provider Enstratius.
  • We are No. 1 in worldwide PC monitor shipments for the first time in six years.
  • Our new PowerEdge VRTX racks up industry awards including ‘Server of the Year’ by PC Pro. It’s a cloud-in-a-box that brings enterprise-class capabilities to small businesses and remote offices.
  • Dell launches a brand new, customer-inspired tablet family—the Dell Venue.
  • We take a long-term view of corporate social responsibility with Dell’s 2020 Legacy of Good Plan – an ambitious set of social and environmental goals to improve our own products, processes and communities and help our customers and partners improve theirs.

  • One year post-privatization, Dell is the fastest growing, large integrated IT company in the world with revenue growth across our businesses and PC and server share gains outpacing the market.
  • Investments in our strategy continue with the acquisition of data analytics leader StatSoft and breakthrough enterprise innovations like our 13th generation of PowerEdge servers and FX Series converged infrastructure solutions.
  • Dell is the global storage leader in total terabytes sold and sets the new industry standard for value with the SC4020 All Flash Array.
  • Our corporate responsibility leadership garners global accolades with the Keep America Beautiful Vision for America Award, Accenture Circular Economy Pioneer Award, and a spot on Ethisphere Institute’s list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.

  • Dell announces its biggest strategic investment yet with its intent to acquire EMC. The combination of companies will make Dell a global enterprise solutions powerhouse.
  • Innovation in our client business helped drive 12 consecutive quarters of PC share gains and resulted in our best performance ever at the Consumer Electronics Show. Products like the XPS 13 and Dell UltraSharp 5K and curved monitors garnered more than 50 awards and recognitions.
  • Customer satisfaction rates reach record highs as customers feel the effects of our singular focus as a private company.
  • We recovered 1.4 billion pounds of used electronics since 2007, making Dell the world’s No. 1 recycler of e-waste and the first in our industry to use recycled plastics in the manufacture of new PCs and displays.
