Dell buys Make Technologies: Three acquisitions in four days

Dell is making a big bet that companies are going to have to modernize legacy applications, re-host them and make them cloud friendly.

Dell is shopping like a teenager just handed a credit card. The company said Thursday that it has acquired Make Technologies, a company that aims to bring legacy applications up to modern standards.

Sound familiar? Dell acquired Clerity Solutions this week in a deal that falls in a similar space. Like Clerity, Dell's Make Technologies purchase will land in its services unit.

The bottom line: Dell is making a big bet that companies are going to have to modernize legacy applications, re-host them and make them cloud friendly.

For those keeping score at home, Dell has acquired three companies in four days. Dell said it would buy Wyse followed up with Clerity and now added Make Technologies.

Make Technologies migrates code, modernizes legacy application portfolios, cuts maintenance costs and trims outdated code. Here's a look at a few screenshots of software that takes an inventory of legacy apps and then analyzes them.
