Memo to Michael: Dell's Report Card Since Your Return
You have some interesting outlines there, but I can't see that calling SAP really helps Dell at this point:
Dell follows the credo 'we eat our own dog food' and the company lives up to it. Backend operations are powered by Microsoft and Oracle on PowerEdge servers and the workforce does their business mainly on Optiplex, Lattitudes and Precision.
Adding SAP will rather complicate things for Dell. Any SAP implementation brings major headaches; it's not a matter of 'if' - it's just a matter of time. Why making the situation more complicated for them?
Michael Dell can virtually call up any company leader on this globe regardless if he sells SAP. Dell should focus on the implementation of its VAR offerings by combining the most recent acquisitions (Everdream, EqualLogic and Silverback) into a solid service that can compete against IBM's Global Network. The reputation Dell can gain from this kind of service offerings will be quickly recognized in the industry and be translated in to additional revenue streams and market shares. And, the cut of 8000 employees is almost finished ;)
