Dell's acquisition plans

Preference for Dell's M&A plans would would be storage, software and services (decreasing order of preference).

NetApp has been touted by some as a perfect candidate for Dell.

While many analysts believe that Dell would prefer an acquisition of a storage company, a storage acquisition may impact Dell's arrangements with EMC. EMC accounts for a significant portion of Dells network storage dollars.

In software and services, Dell could attack niches in the enterprise server and storage space.

The suspects by areas include:-

CSC, CapGemini, Sapient, Perot, Syntel, Atos

Netapp, Teradata

Acer, Palm

CA, TIBCO,, BMC, Citrix
