BANGALORE: Dell chairman and CEO, Michael Dell is in Bangalore today for a whistle-stop tour that includes meetings with Dell’s Indian employees and what the company is calling a "personal visit" to Infosys.


One of the largest PC manufacturers in the world, Dell Corporation has major plans for India. Its global tech support center in Bangalore called Dell International Services (DIS) currently hires nearly 3000 people or over 7 percent of Dell’s worldwide workforce.

Earlier a Dell official had indicated that the company would be moving its entire technical support operations to India in a phased manner. The DIS has been ramping up fast in recent times with much of the growth happening in the last six months.

"Dell is expanding heavily in India and he (Michael Dell) is expected to meet up with divisional heads of the company on the same," revealed the source. At Infosys, Dell is expected to meet up with chairman and chief mentor K R Narayana Murthy and the company’s senior management as well. Both companies maintain this is a "personal visit" though Dell is both a client and large vendor for the software giant.

Dell arrived last evening while on an Asia tour and will be leaving India tonight. While he will not be visiting any other companies, according to a source, "he might call up a few other top CEOs also."
