Dell aims to boost software business
SAN FRANCISCO: Dell Inc’s new software chief plans to increase the size of the business five-fold, a target that could eventually account for at least 25% of the No. 3 personal computer maker’s profits.
John Swainson, the former chief executive of CA Technologies who joined Dell in February, said software was a higher margin business than most of the company’s other units, but was not big enough to make a difference right now. – Reuters
