Dell, Inc. (Dell) is a technology company headquartered in Round Rock, Texas. It was started in 1984 by current CEO Michael Dell (who, at age 27, was the youngest CEO of a Fortune 500 company ever) and quickly became a major player in the personal computing space because of its efficient manufacturing processes, which enabled it to ultimately sell at a lower price point. Furthermore, its partnerships with Microsoft and Intel helped the company rise among its competitors in the 1990s, after going public in 1988. It is during this time period that Dell introduced its first server product, PowerEdge. By 1998, server sales accounted for about 13% of the company’s total revenue. However, because Dell focused more on supply-chain efficiencies and less on innovation, the company experienced major setbacks when portable music players and tablet computing were introduced to the personal computing space. Dell’s growth came to a halt, and the company opted to re-privatize in 2013 and sell all its public shares. This marked a change in Dell’s overall strategy, with a push to focus more on the enterprise server, storage, and networking space, along with IT consulting. The late-2000s to mid-2010s also saw Dell begin a series of strategic acquisitions, including: Alienware, EqualLogic, Perot Systems, KACE Networks, Boomi, Compellent, Force10, AppAssure, SonicWall, Wyse, Clerity Solutions, Quest Software, Gale Technologies, Credant Technologies, and StatSoft.
Core Dell product lines include: Dell PowerEdge, Dell PowerConnect, Dell EqualLogic, Dell SonicWall
