Dell Focused On Its Enterprise Strategy
Haas said during his keynote that Dell has invested $16 billion in the last 10 years in the enterprise, including in its acquisitions of EqualLogic, Compellent and Quest Software.
Those investments have given Dell the ability to offer customers an end-to-end approach to IT performance and efficiency, he said.
"We're accelerating the integration of the different platforms around storage, servers, networking," he said, "to deliver that optimal value to customers," he said.
Later, Haas told CRN that Dell's move to go private is not impacting its focus on the enterprise, and indeed could have a positive impact on that strategy.
"If we go private, [CEO] Michael [Dell] can spend more time on the customer side and less on the PC side," he said. "Right now, we're focused on our strategy. Flip-flopping on a strategy creates risk."
