SaaS, VaaS or DaaS: Its all coming at you alright! And Michael Dell is on top it it!
Dell has signed an agreement to acquire privately-held Everdream Corp., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for remote-service management.
Terms were not disclosed and the purchase will not be final until all closing conditions are met. Everdream is based in Fremont, Calif., with a second facility in Charlotte, N.C.
The planned acquisition is a key component in Dell’s strategy of enabling customers to Simplify IT. Everdream’s capabilities complement those provided by the recently acquired Silverback Technologies, further enabling end-to-end remote management of customers’ IT environments. With this acquisition, Dell can now extend remote management of critical IT assets from servers, storage, printers, etc to desktops, notebooks and other end-user devices globally.
“The planned Everdream acquisition is a significant step in Dell’s next-generation service offerings and provides Dell an expanded presence in the rapidly growing SaaS-enabled managed services market,” said Steve Schuckenbrock, Dell senior vice president. “Everdream has an extremely talented team that has developed industry leading technology enabling customers and partners to easily and affordably manage PCs from anywhere in the world.”
Everdream products will continue to be developed for and offered through channel partners, and will also serve as the foundation for future Dell service offerings.
