Dell EMC

When it comes to IT infrastructure, one of the biggest news stories of the year was the merger of two huge vendors: Dell and EMC. The two companies officially became one on Sept. 7. The company is now known as Dell Technologies, but its infrastructure products, including servers, storage, networking, and converged solutions are sold under the Dell EMC brand name.

In completing the merger, the company has already overcome a number of hurdles, but it still has many challenges ahead. Only time will tell if the two companies will be able to align their products, strategies and staff to compete successfully for enterprise IT business.

How about 10 who 'stole a march' on better established companies?
It's hard to argue with these ten as being in the spotlight over the past year. As for "stealing" the spotlight, I tend to think of the little guys stealing a march on someone much larger, and for that I think of C3 IoT, Mesosphere and Cloudability. But that's only three. Who else would you add as spotlight thieves?
