Touted as one of the largest non-government contracts, Dell Technologies on Friday announced that tech major GE will use Dell Inc. infrastructure and end-user computing solutions to support GE’s ongoing digital transformation efforts.
Under the multi-year deal, Dell Inc. becomes the primary IT infrastructure supplier for GE.
GE will now use Dell EMC servers, storage, backup and related professional services, aiming to enhance the reliability and efficiency of its IT infrastructure with automated and flash-optimised solutions.
“We are excited to deepen our relationship with GE to enable them to better serve customers and to continue our mutual exploration of what is possible for the industrial internet,” said Michael Dell, chairman and CEO, Dell Technologies.
The financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
GE will use Dell client solutions and peripherals to drive workforce transformation and improve end-user experience for its employees worldwide.
The company has previously worked with Dell Technologies companies like Virtustream, Pivotal and VMware, to support development of its ‘Predix’ industrial Internet of Things (IoT) platform.
“The investment we are making today will continue to push us forward and improve the end-user experience for our employees around the globe,” said Chris Drumgoole, Vice President and CTO, Digital Technology, GE, in a statement.
In addition, GE Digital is a Dell IoT Solutions Partner and the companies have worked together on a variety of Industrial IoT and OEM initiatives.
Dell and EMC have just completed one year of their merger. The company formed a unified Dell and Dell EMC salesforce and created $35 billion Dell Technologies channel and global channel programme, which added 10,000 new business customers to the Dell EMC portfolio.
