For the past four years, Dell has undergone a transformation to evolve into an industry-leading enterprise solutions company that empowers its customers and partners through innovative technology and services.
This week, Dell’s transformation achievements were recognized at the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Houston, Texas. We are proud to announce that Dell was honored with seven Partner of the Year awards, including five from Dell Services.
