re: Dell Earnings Don't Tell Big Transformation Story
No one considers Dell a business "solutions" provider. People buy Dell for one reason and one reason only, cost. Technological innovation and an understanding of business requirements are not Dell's department.

There hasn't been much drama in the "transformation" because their acquisitions have all been really small companies that did not require any integration. I will say that they have done much better than HP with acquisitions, but that is a low bar. EqualLogic is a solid SMB iSCSI array. Force 10 is tiny, but they have good products. Dell should be targeting networking. Cisco is a massive target.

The new Dell Laptop looks like it may compete with the Apple Airbook, so this is a good start if Dell can comeback from the abyss.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
