When it comes to brass tacks, customer wins is what counts. And for Dell, it has put more than a few notches in its belt when it comes to winning important, new business. For starters, one of its biggest public wins has been a $22 billion IT service and solutions contract with the United States Department of Homeland Security and the United States General Services Administration.
Other more recent wins include a deal with dating site eHarmony to deliver Dell SharePlex software to help the matchmaking site more quickly sift through its Compatibility Matching System. Other client PC wins include a number of contracts to provide Chromebooks to Texas schools and supplying Dell PowerEdge servers to Berkeley, Calif.-based Tippett Studios, which used the Dell hardware to create special effects movies including "Ted," and, most recently, the upcoming "Jurassic World" sequel to "Jurassic Park."
