5 Companies That Came To Win


The battle for control of Dell has see-sawed back and forth, but this week's developments leave company founder and CEO Michael Dell with the advantage.

Other companies and executives that came to win this week include Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman and a key appearance at a channel partner event, a new release of Windows that makes a start toward overcoming the software's original flaws, a new converged infrastructure system that targets big data applications, and a mobile management vendor that scored big with a surprising hire.
