Who will Dell buy in services push?

Dell announced to the world yesterday that it will acquire to build up its services business.

I wonder if we will see some smaller European players consumed. It might have a bit of competition from Oracle.

The US hardware giant got its services business going with the take over of Indian supplier Perot Systems in 2009 for £2.4bn. Dell has some bold claims about what the purchase of Perot means.

A source of mine told me Dell was a bit naive when it bought Perot Systems because it gave it a smaller services footprint than it expected. Maybe that's why it needs to keep on spending.

This is what Dell Services has globally today:

41,000 Employees Globally
12.8 Million Desktops and Notebooks Supported
Over 2.5M Desktops Managed
Over 5,000 SaaS Customers
28 Delivery Hubs in North America, Europe, and Asia
60 Expert Tech Support Centers
7 Global Command Centers

Dell has just bought SaaS integration  firm Boomi.
