Dell Buys SaaS House

Dell can extend remote management of critical IT assets from servers, storage and printers to desktops, notebooks

Dell is going to buy privately held Everdream Corporation, a nine-year-old ISV that does agent-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for remote-service management or at least it will "when all the closing conditions are met," it said.

Terms were not disclosed. Everdream is based in Fremont, California, with a second facility in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The planned acquisition is part of Dell's newfangled ideas of simplifying IT. It said Everdream's capabilities complement those of Dell's recent Silverback Technologies acquisition, further enabling end-to-end remote management of customers' IT environments. With Everdream, Dell can extend remote management of critical IT assets from servers, storage and printers to desktops, notebooks and other end-user devices globally.

Everdream products will continue to be developed for and offered through the channel partners, and will serve as the foundation for future Dell service offerings, the company said.

Everdream claims to manage 140,000 desktops in 60 countries including ADP, Korean Airlines and Salesforce.com, the SaaS paradigm that coincidently just landed its biggest contract yet, providing CRM for 30,000 Citigroup users. Dell is also a top Salesforce account.
