PC manufacturer Dell is to tell analysts this week that it will shift its focus to computer services, servers and enterprise data storage in a bid to diversify.
The move comes as the merger between Hewlett Packard and Compaq appears to be a certainty, adding serious competition in sheer size to the smaller Dell group.
Founder Michael Dell will unveil plans at briefings with press and analysts over the next two days, but would not reveal anything prior to that.
"[Dell] won a lot of enterprise accounts just by low-cost PC pricing and now it has the opportunity to sell servers, services and storage," analyst Eric Rothdeutsche told Reuters.
Competition is expected to hot up as IT budgets improve in the coming months, but Dell is still expected to rely on partnerships in several areas, such as its existing agreement with EMC in the data storage space.
