Dell is the latest tech titan to make a portfolio-broadening acquisition. Yet another tech acquisition proves that the older, established tech companies are moving away from traditional core offerings and diversifying at a record pace. Dell just purchased Force 10 Networks, an enterprise networking company. Dell is synonymous with hardware. We got real insight into how keen traditional hardware companies are to broaden their products lines with the ferocious bidding war between Dell and HP for storage vendor 3Par. There’s been a tidal wave of acquisitions of late: Dell purchased Compellent, another storage company, after it lost the bid for 3Par end of last year, and Microsoft acquired Skype. HP got not only 3Par, but Vertica Systems, a real-time analytics company, earlier this year.
