Submission + - Dell trying to buy Perot Systems (marketwatch.com)

NoYob writes: "

In what is the largest acquisition Dell Inc. has attempted in its 25 years, the computer technology giant said Monday it would acquire Perot Systems Corp. for $3.9 billion in a deal it hopes will aid its effort to challenge chief rival Hewlett-Packard Co. in the IT services industry.

Dell's take:

The deal signifies the ongoing attempts of the largest computer makers to expand deeper into the profitable market for IT services.

The only place for growth for many hardware makers is to move into services and offering solutions for the business community. It's either offer services and solutions or stagnate and maybe die."
