Dell Acquires Application Modernization Vendor

Dell has acquired Clerity Solutions, a provider of applications modernization and re-hosting solutions and services. Clerity's capabilities will enable Dell Services to help customers reduce the cost of transitioning business-critical applications and data from legacy computing systems and onto more modern architectures, including the cloud.

"Increasingly, x86 platforms are enabling super-scale cloud environments," according to Steve Schuckenbrock, president of Dell Services. "The addition of Clerity gives us a clear advantage in helping customers modernize and migrate their applications off outdated hardware infrastructure to more current architectures."

In recent years, Dell has sought to expand its services capabilities to help customers manage the increasing complexity of IT, including the ability to support growing volumes of data, streamline processes and ease the transition to cloud-based solutions.

Clerity's re-hosting solution is designed to make it easier for customers to move applications off legacy computing architectures into the new IT environment of their choice. By automating this approach to IT modernization through its UniKix offering, Clerity seeks to help customers minimize the need to retest systems and retrain IT personnel.
