EMC expects “minimal disruption” to existing product lines in a bid to reassure customers and partners as the industry’s biggest tech merger looms large.

As reported by Reseller News in October, Dell has confirmed plans to acquire EMC and its myriad of businesses, bringing together two titans of the technology industry in a record-breaking $US67 billion deal.

In combing the EMC Federation of companies and Dell, the business combination will create the world¹s largest privately-controlled technology company, and is now expected to close in mid-2016.

But with months to go until the completion of the deal, Goulden insists it will be business as usual for the tech giant.

“Our combined product and technology portfolios and sales approaches are complementary, so customers can buy with confidence as we expect minimal disruption to existing product lines,” says David Goulden, CEO, EMC.

“In fact, the strength of our combination is generating positive feedback from customers excited about what the future will bring.”

In a direct message to customers and partner, Goulden committed to extending the company’s technology leadership through investment in Research and Development, including enhancing existing products and roadmaps.

“We’ll continue to preserve our dedication to customer choice (free of lock-in) and continue to enhance our partnerships and technology ecosystems,” Goulden adds.

Combined, Goulden says EMC and Dell will be a leader in 22 Gartner Magic Quadrants, with an end-to-end product portfolio spanning storage, servers, virtualisation and PCs, including leadership positions in software-defined data centre, hybrid cloud, converged infrastructure, mobile and security.

“Plus,” Goulden adds, “moving to a privately-controlled ownership model will provide more freedom to invest for the long-term, in R&D and innovation to provide you with top-class products, services and support.”
