Merging Global Companies: Evaluating Which ITFM Tools and Models to Retire?
Dell and EMC recently came together in the largest merger of technology companies in history. The resulting company, Dell Technologies, was forced to rationalize many of its legacy applications. This was also true for its ITFM tools: EMC was using one tool, while Dell was using another. Questions of: should the legacy EMC model prevail? Or should the legacy Dell model be used? Or should the merged company continue operating separate systems? After careful analysis, a project was launched to migrate the legacy Dell model to the EMC tool. The complexities were enormous, involving three distinct phases and five separate companies. This session will discuss how the migration decision was made and how the project team was able to overcome tremendous odds to develop a highly effective combined model for the merged company.
