Acquisitions and mergers are a common occurrence in business and today sees Dell acquiring Wyse. Dell purchased Wyse for an undisclosed amount in order to focus more on its corporate customers. Wyse specialized in thin-clients, offering vertically integrated, centralized computing solutions for corporations.

Dell could benefit from Wyse's experience in the business computing market. Also, Dell may be setting its sights on the cloud as they referred to Wyse as a "cloud client" leader. Wyse has about 500 employees, 180+ patents, and is valued at roughly $350 million. Dell will probably combine Wyse's experience in centralized computing with its own reach and ability to produce inexpensive computers. This sounds like a match made in heaven.
