Steve Schuckenbrock, president of the PC maker's large enterprise business, said on Thursday that corporations in general were either cautiously investing or stuck in hunker-down mode.
Speaking at the Reuters Global Technology Summit in New York, he said Dell would focus on acquiring new customers. I think we scaled back our attention to that over the last couple of years, particularly in the U.S, as we shifted resources for growth and other segments. And we lost share in large customers and we're not going to do that again.
Schuckenbrock said Dell may expand into virtualization services for corporate clients.
We're certainly buyers now and you should expect to see us in that mode, Schuckenbrock said, adding that there were attractive targets for all industry players. I don't know that it's 'do it now' because of inflation of price. I don't think we're as concerned about that as we are that there's a lot of consolidation in the industry
