Its official Dell merge with EMC

Dell Inc. and private-equity firm Silver Lake will buy data-storage company EMC Corp for roughly $67 billion in cash and stock, marking the biggest technology-industry takeover ever.
The $33.15-a-share price tag represents a 28% premium over EMC’s closing price states Wall street journal.

VMware, a pioneer in virtualization software in which EMC owns about an 80% stake, will remain a publicly traded company with Dell as controlling shareholder.  Hope the pending deal of  Broadcom Corp by Chip maker Avago Technologies Ltd. for $37 billion agreement will happen soon
Its twice as biggest than whatsapp acquisition also bigger than Compaq-HP deal

The common point is DELL, EMC, VMWARE is betting upon the same technology. "Virtualization"
This will add value and make some changes in this space. Added RSA a premier Infosec product also add value since RSA is one of the leader in GRC space.

Whats the next game changing plan DELL ??
