Updated on

On the one-year anniversary of its historic tie-up with EMC, Dell Technologies Inc. is showing that bigger can be better.

The company demonstrated surging demand for servers, networking equipment and computers and signed on 10,000 new business customers in the past year. On Thursday it announced a deal to become General Electric Co.’s primary IT infrastructure supplier, in one of Dell’s largest non-government contracts ever. Sales in the fiscal second quarter were up 48 percent from a year ago and prior to the merger, and 8.3 percent from the previous quarter. Operating losses also narrowed.
