A day after Dell Chairman and CEO Michael Dell secured shareholder approval for his $25 billion offer to buy and take the personal computer maker private, he spoke with CNBC about his plans for the company.
"We're really focused on our customers and building out end-to-end solutions," Dell told "Squawk on the Street" Friday about the future of the company.
Dell listed five strategic areas of focus for the company moving forward: enhancements in enterprise solutions, increasing sales capacity, a redoubled focus on emerging markets, "cloud client computing" in tablets and PCs, and "investments to enhance the customer experience."
"It's really about changing our focus from a quarterly focus to a longer term, five year, 10 year focus, doubling down on the investments" to serve Dell's customers, he explained.
Dell estimates that his business is playing in a $3 trillion industry, of which Dell has "roughly 2 percent" share. "Nobody has 4 percent or 5 percent. It's incredibly dispersed, large number of companies," he said, estimating that the computing space will evolve into a $6 trillion industry in the medium term.
One of the "predominant trends" in the market now is for clients to develop their own private cloud systems, he said. In addition, new tech companies require servers, infrastructure and storage capabilities which Dell will look to provide.
Dell also said that his company would not be entering the mobile phone business and instead will maintain a position as a re-seller of phones made by other companies. However, he said that "Dell will participate in tablets and all sorts of client devices."
