Dell has launched a consulting and business intelligence (BI) tools in a bid to grow its enterprise solutions portfolio.
Flexible Workstyle Consulting is a Dell programme that offers IT departments best practice capabilities and customised IT management tools for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programmes.
The Toad Business Intelligence Suite 2.0 is a self-service BI tool that offers business more control over a variety of data information.
"We are starting to see the democratisation of big data. We are starting to see the tools that make big data useful to companies of all sizes," said Dell software group president John Swainson.
The Toad Business Intelligence suite 2.0 allows users to analyse data from a variety data sources to provide better information discovery. It offers storyboarding and visualisation aids to enable analysis presentation to be shown on the web.
It will also improve collaboration of analysis through desktop self-service data integration.
The Flexible Workstyle Consulting platform offers users customisable deployment and development of BYOD tools through the ability to mix cloud and on premise systems.
Flexible Workstyle Consulting allows for collaborative technologies that allow for easier sharing between employees. Dell's offering allows for the convergence of email, telephone, and video conference over a unified IP network.
Dell said the platform can lower costs while offering users a mobile and flexible platform. It comes as the firm continues to spread out from its hardware roots. During the announcement for the offerings, Dell touted its move to become a stronger end-to-end provider of IT solutions.
Dell executive Swainson said it has a key advantage to competitors when it comes to accomplishing their goals. He reported Dell doesn't have to support legacy systems like some of its competitors.
"Our competitors really have a dilemma because they have all these legacy revenues. We don't have that," continued Swainson.
The company has been trying to reinvent itself in the face of the decline PC and hardware business. Company founder Michael Dell has been in the middle of an up hill battle to take the firm private in recent months.
