It’s now Dell Advanced Infrastructure Manager (AIM)

From branding update and partnership, to fully acquired company. I didn’t have much to do with the Scalent acquisition apart from some technical due diligence and strategy, but I was delighted to learn that we’ve closed on, and formally acquired Scalent today.

As anyone who has been involved in acquisitions, either as an acquired company, or the acquired will know, now the hard work starts. Keeping a focus on the business needs and product evolution, while completing the integration.

I for one would like to be amongst the first to welcome CTO Chandy Nilakantan and VP of Engineering Larry Stein to the Dell family, along with all the other great Scalent employees.
