Dell completes acquisition of Quest Software

Dell announced it has completed the acquisition of Quest Software, an IT management software provider.

Quest brings more than 100,000 customers, 5,000 channel partners, 1,500 software sales and marketing people, and 1,300 software developers to the Dell Software Group, and is the foundation of a $1 billion-plus annual revenue software business.

John Swainson, president, Dell Software, said the close of the Quest acquisition is a tremendous milestone in Dell’s journey to strengthen our end-to-end IT capabilities, empowering our customers to unlock greater value in their Dell technology investments, as well as their overall IT environments. “We are addressing key needs for our customers, helping them leverage the cloud, support ‘bring-your-own-device’ in their enterprise, and deploy mobile applications and virtualization to drive improved business results. The addition of Quest Software into Dell’s software portfolio will extend our industry-leading suite of solutions to a broader range of customers and partners, while simplifying operations, maximizing workforce productivity and delivering faster results.”

Quest supports heterogeneous and next-generation virtualized and cloud environments with a wide range of solutions that are complementary to Dell’s mid-market design approach. Quest provides components to expand Dell’s software capabilities in four areas, according to the Round Rock, Tex.-based company: systems management, security, business intelligence and applications.
