The company has changed considerable, especiallysince Michael Dell returned as chief executive in January 2007.“A lot of people think ofDell as what it was five or 10 years ago, but we’ve moved much more into the core ofinformation technology, into the data center.”

  14. 14. iPad eats PC market share• Improvements to the iPad turn it into a potential PC replacement for more and more people.• More powerful chips mean more sophisticated aps can reside on the iPad.• The iCloud should make the iPads limited storage capacity less relevant.• Built in LTE makes the tablet an attractive alternative for travelers who don’t want to hunt for a Wi-Fi hotspot.
  15. 15. Reaction to Problem• Since 2007 Dell has grown by both increasing its customer base and through acquisitions.• Dell has expanded into new markets. Most notably business services.• As of February 27, 2012, 47,000 out of Dell’s 110,000 employees work in business services• $7.7 billion a year business and about 12% of total revenue.
  16. 16. Dell’s Server Division• One notable acquisition was of Perot Systems, in 2009, which had a large health consulting and services business.• Dell is now the #1 provider of health technology services• The company stores more than 4 billion medical images in its data centers, so hospitals do not have to grapple with that chore on their own.
  17. 17. Dell’s Server Division (cont.)• In addition to acquiring companies. Dell has innovated.• Server customers have many diverse choices and often cannot afford comprehensive upgrades.• Therefore, Dell’s products must work with all kinds of new and older networking and data storage equipment.
  18. 18. Dell’s Server Division (cont.)• Dell servers run at 5 watts (about as much as a night light).• They manage internal temperature, since a machine’s cooling fans use more power than anything else.
  19. 19. Midsized Businesses Services• Michael Dell believes the big potential market is offering services to midsize businesses, typically companies with from a few hundred to a few thousand employees• According to him, Rivals I.B.M. and Hewlett-Packard, have a more costly business models aimed at large corporations.
  20. 20. Midsized Businesses Services (Cont.)• On February 10, 2010 Dell acquired KACE Networks, a leader in Systems Management Appliances.• Dell stated it was buying KACE to expand its systems management offerings to better address IT administrators in mid- size organizations.

  22. 22. Our Evaluation of Dell’s case• Do we agree with the Dell’s decision to evolve into more of a services company? – YES!!! – Helps diversify its business – IT industry is evolving; get with the program… – Maintain their “affordable and efficient” tradition – Affordable & Efficient Hardware + Service = $$$ + =
  23. 23. Our Evaluation of Dell’s case• What would we do to remedy the problem at hand? – What problem? – Dell already in most midsized datacenters – Service via cloud or data center management – Develop a sound market strategy – Continue to appeal to medical information record management organizations
  24. 24. Our Evaluation of Dell’s case• Breakdown on their decision – Dell is trying to be recognized as more than a hardware – Already has a foot in the datacenter door with their hardware – Continue to appeal to midsized datacenters – Companies may look to Dell for both hardware and service needs
  25. 25. Our Evaluation of Dell’s case• Competition? – HP, IBM and other IT service support organizations. • IBM – “Building a Smarter Planet” • HP – Has HP Services division in government market• Harris IT Services (My Company) – Division of Harris • Has numerous IT services support contracts – Medical & Dental – Commercial and Government Sectors
  26. 26. Our Evaluation of Dell’s case• What if we were against the services initiative? – Dell may have lost out on millions if not billions – Could have filed for bankruptcy
  27. 27. Our Evaluation of Dell’s case• Remember, “If there is a will there is a way” – Don’t overlook these IT giants evolving their business into service oriented businesses – One multi million dollar service contract can make a difference
  28. 28. Our final thoughts…• Dell will need to market themselves as a reputable service leader• Focus on IT service for midsized businesses• Continue going after medical IT market• Perhaps price leverage their hardware and service into an affordable bundle plan• Spend a little now to continue making billions…
