Dell Merges Large Enterprise, Public Business Units

By CIOinsight  |  Posted 01-13-2011

Dell announced it would consolidate its Public and Large Enterprise business units into a single organization, and Paul Bell will serve as president of the combined Public-Large Enterprise business unit.

Dell also announced Steve Schuckenbrock has been named president of Dell Services. Schuckenbrock succeeds Peter Altabef, who is leaving Dell after leading the integration of Perot Systems into Dell. Both Schuckenbrock and Bell will report to Michael Dell, the company's chairman and CEO.

The company said the creation of a single Public-Large Enterprise business unit is designed to enhance Dell's position as a provider of open, capable and affordable IT technology solutions and services.

The combined Dell Services business unit represents almost $8 billion in the company's annual revenue. With more than 43,000 employees in 90 countries, Dell Services operates 60 technology-support centers around the world and 36 customer data centers, and provides technical support for 14 million client systems and 10,000 SAAS (Software-as-a-Service) customers.

"Over the past year, the Services team met or exceeded all of its integration milestones, achieving more than $100 million in cost savings in fiscal 2011 and capturing revenue synergies of more than $150 million, both surpassing original estimates," a company release stated.
