Is Dell-EMC The Canary In The Coal Mine For More Enterprise M&A;?


techcrunch.comWhen Dell announced it was buying EMC earlier this month for $67 billion, it would have been easy to see the deal in isolation, but what if it were the first of many such deals? Could Oracle, for example, make a play for HP’s Enterprise business? One well-connected source tells us that even this may be possible.

Consider that HP sold TippingPoint to Trend Micro for $300 million and separately announced it was getting out of the public cloud market last week — perhaps shedding unprofitable pieces ahead of the split or making it more attractive to a potential buyer.
