Perot Systems is known for offering services for applications, technology, infrastructure, business processes and consulting. It has clients in health care, government and other commercial segments, from SMEs to large global institutions; it also has a large and growing base of customers and service-delivery capabilities in North America; Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Asia.
In the last year, Dell and Perot had a combined $16 billion in enterprise-hardware and IT-services revenue, with about $8 billion from enhanced services and support, the companies said.
Once the acquisition is complete, Perot will become Dell's services unit and be led from Plano by Peter Altabef, the current Perot Systems chief executive officer.
Dell directors are expected to consider Ross Perot Jr., Perot Systems’ chairman of the board, for appointment to the Dell board.
