Dell Appoints Anand Sankaran To Lead Dell Services’ Infrastructure And Cloud Computing Business

Dell today announced that Anand Sankaran, a 25-year industry leader, will join the company as president and global head of Dell Services’ Infrastructure and Cloud Computing line of business. He will report to Suresh Vaswani, president of Dell Services.

Mr. Sankaran will lead a global team of nearly 10,000 employees responsible for driving infrastructure consulting and delivery, managed services and services related to the company’s Cloud offerings. He was formerly senior vice president of Wipro’s Global Infrastructure Services business as well as head of Wipro Infotech, its India and Middle East business. Mr. Sankaran previously held a variety of Wipro management positions after joining the company in 1989.

“Dell is extremely well-positioned to help our customers benefit from the power of the cloud, and modern, scale-out infrastructure and applications,” said Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell. “Customers rely on Dell Services to maximize their current technology investments, while enabling them to prepare for the future. It’s a fast growing area with a lot of demand. Anand is a proven leader and joins a strong Services team that will accelerate our momentum.”

“In the next three years, it is estimated that 70 percent of CXOs will expect a significant or complete IT overhaul in their organizations,” said Mr. Vaswani. “Anand’s impressive strategic expertise and operational excellence in infrastructure services are a great fit for Dell as we continue to drive our global services business in support of these CXO challenges. Anand will help us execute our strategy and rapidly build upon the strength of our Infrastructure and Cloud Computing capabilities. These capabilities will help us continue differentiating Dell and are some of our most strategic investment areas.”

“I’m thrilled to join the Dell team,” said Mr. Sankaran. “Dell has leading technology, a strong global brand and customer relationships that make the growth opportunity exceptional. I look forward to working with Dell’s talented team and helping drive its strategy.”
