According to third-quarter estimates by International Data Corp., Dell regained its No. 1 ranking in terms of global market share. The company held that position for five consecutive quarters through the first quarter of this year. Dell ranked No. 2 by a narrow margin in the second quarter following consolidation of the industry's second- and third-largest companies.
"It's a credit to our team and we're proud of the rate at which we're winning new customers, and retaining and expanding our business with existing ones," said Michael Dell, Dell's chairman of the board and CEO.
Mr. Dell said the company's growth is a product of leading efficiency, exceptional execution, and relevant innovation in the standards-based technology that customers increasingly demand.
"The trend toward standards-based products and services from the desktop to the data center is accelerating, because they're powerful, flexible and offer great value," he said. "We think we're best able to deliver that value to customers, but recognize the need to prove that every day."
