Dell's acquisition a Wyse one, analysts say

Dell's announcement on Monday that it had finalized an agreement to acquire thin client maker Wyse allows the company to fill a portfolio gap that had been exploited by competitors such as HP, according to industry experts.

On its own, the Wyse acquisition -- provided that it can be accomplished smoothly and the company's products can be thoroughly integrated into Dell's own -- removes a long-standing competitive handicap for the Texas-based hardware maker. In combination with other recent moves, like the purchase of SonicWall and a recently announced partnership with cloud desktop provider Desktone, it could even be a sign of bigger things to come.
