After surviving the initial 100 day period, and one full quarter of operating as a combined entity, Dell EMC is starting to see the results it was hoping to from this merger.
Rajesh Janey, president-enterprise business, Dell EMC said, “Our market share increased 2x year-on-year in certain segments. In storage, our market share for Q1 is 43.4 %, 20.2% in servers and 22.5% in PCs. In storage for instance, our share has gone up by 26% over the previous year (combined shares) as against a market growth of 14%”.
He attributes this to a combination of factors, central to which have been joint wins and the ability to offer customers a wider portfolio of products and solutions. “The way we are structured, it allows the customer more choice and flexibility without being tied to a single vendor,” he said.
The company has been structured into seven brands under the digital transformation umbrella, two wholly owned subsidiaries and three strategically aligned business units after the merger. In terms of industry segments, Janey said that government and financial services were doing well, while manufacturing has become strong in the past year. While IT and ITes remained robust, growth was slower as it was coming off a larger base.
“Going ahead, we expect manufacturing and the government sector to remain robust, fuelled by Digital India and other initiatives. Defence and defence manufacturing is another segment to watch out for,” he said.
India is on an aggressive digital growth path, aiming to become a $1 trillion by 2022. This is driving all aspects of the information technology market which is pegged to be at about $75bn by the end of 2017. While the storage market is pegged at $350mn, server and networking are likely to be at $800 million and $960 million respectively, with PCs coming in at $4.5 billion.
