Dell To Focus On Services Expansion In Emerging Markets

Dell has announced plans to expand its IT services to emerging global markets as demand recovers.

According to ABC News, the company will not be focussing on huge acquisitions in the near future, but instead will go for systematic "service expansion on a geographic basis".

Steve Schuckenbrock, Dell's global president for enterprise business, said that China was one of the key markets in which the company would like to further expand in.

Dell has plans to increase its annual revenue from its services unit in China from the current 10 per cent to 25 per cent over the next three years.

The company is also set to branch out of its core PC business into servers and other enterprise services. Dell recently lost a bidding war with rival HP over 3PAR, but later made up for it by acquiring cloud computing firm Boomi.

Dell was one of the worst hit IT companies during the global recession, with most of its business relying on enterprise IT spending.
