Dell announces its Intent to acquire Make Technologies

Make Technologies logo

The Applications and BPO organization is at the core of Dell’s solutions transformation. Within Applications Services, we have established application modernization as our flagship proposition. The potential addition of Make Technologies, combined with the Clerity Solutions acquisition announced on Tuesday, positions Dell as the highest-quality provider for modernizing applications.

Together, the intellectual property, talent and capabilities from Clerity Solutions and Make Technologies will significantly augment the applications expertise offered by Dell Services to customers. We will now be able to better help customers with all their modernization needs—from re-hosting to application re-engineering.

The four key areas for our application modernization portfolio that I mentioned in my blog post on Tuesday are clearly visible in these two acquisitions. Our capability to re-host applications through their migration from legacy systems to standard architectures was expanded with the acquisition of Clerity Solutions. Now, our application re-engineering solutions and automated application and code migration are enhanced by the intended acquisition of Make Technologies.

There are many reasons why Make Technologies will benefit our organization and our customers. Specifically, Make Technologies:

  • Provides customers with end-to-end application portfolio transformation solutions that modernizes entire portfolios of legacy applications in the least amount of time and with the lowest risk
  • Reduces cost of maintaining and managing legacy applications
  • Makes business processes more efficient and cost-effective by bringing legacy applications onto a modern, re-architected platform
  • Drastically reduces the amount of custom code in legacy portfolios, while protecting the legacy information of the business functions it supports

These two terrific organizations blending with our current team members in the Application Modernization business will provide a unique customer experience that will set Dell Services apart.
