Dell Inc. (NASDAQ: DELL) is two-for-two this week. That is two acquisitions in two days. Today, the company announced its acquisition of Chicago-based Clerity Solutions, an IT solutions company that helps its customers to migrate from mainframe hardware and software to more modern, cloud-based applications. The purchase price was not disclosed.
Clerity employs 70 people and the company will become part of Dell’s services group.
Today’s acquisition makes a little more sense than yesterday’s purchase of Wyse Technology because there is really just a single direction for Dell to take Clerity. Migrate Clerity’s customers to Dell’s servers and other cloud-based software. And Clerity probably didn’t cost as much as Wyse either.
Dell’s shares are down about -0.8% at $16.64 in a 52-week range of $13.29-$18.36.
