Props to Michael Dell for talking to CRN about his business post going private... We had about 40 minutes with him on the phone. We talk to him about his company's ambitious plan to leverage business partners that resell Dell hardware, software, and services. He said those value added resellers are now growing private Dell faster than his direct sales team.
