This move is bound to strengthen Dell’ s growing portfolio of software service solutions that enable organizations to efficiently manage and grow their businesses (Indiainfoline News Service 2012; EFY times 2012).

The importance, implications, and applications of these three functions are carefully examined and analyzed. Moreover, the role of each aspect in the success of Dell’ s strategic goals and objectives is taken into account and explained as it applies to the case scenario. Managing PeopleBased on SME Channels' (2012) article on Dell India’ s move towards expansion and upgrade of its products and services, it is evident that Dell India’ s strategic goal is to provide its customers with unequaled customized expert advice on the right Dell products which will suit their specific needs.
