Dell's services business is growing faster than sales of computer equipment and represents a "huge opportunity," CEO Michael Dell told the FT.

"I think you will see some more acquisitions to add capability to our services team," he said.

Dell did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Only about a tenth of Dell's revenue currently come from services, which could include helping companies install new equipment and running a technology help desk, the report said.
