Constellation Research attended the DAACIndia 2013 on 26 and 27 Sept 2013 in Bangalore. Having won the go-private mandate barely a fortnight ago, ‘The World’s Largest Start-up’ message dominated the conference theme. Alok Ohrie, President and Managing Director, Dell India, dedicated a sizable chunk of his keynote to sharing Dell’s focus and priorities post mandate (see Figure 1). Moreover, Dell's India customers speaking on the panel expressed a sense of relief that the uncertainty had passed.
