Dell (DELL) follows up its FQ3 report by announcing it's acquiring Gale Technologies, a developer of systems management/automation software, and forming a unit that will design end-to-end IT hardware solutions for businesses. Dell just wrapped up its purchase of Quest Software, a bigger systems management firm, and recently unveiled integrated high-end systems. The moves both complement a server/networking unit that's easily Dell's strongest business right now, and also play into a broader IT trend of providing end-to-end solutions.
