I’ve been slacking on blog posts for a while, my Ironman training has been the main reason, time outside work has just vanished as I approach my final ironman distance triathlon in July. Also, increasingly I’ve been internally focussed on a number of key projects as well, are busy creating the real Dell Software Group, out of some fabulous acquisitions. While Dell Software Group has existed for over a year, given the staff and products largely have come from only acquisitions with a number of us moving over from what we fondly refer to as “legacy dell”, we are really starting to see a coherent software business emerge, rather than individual businesses.

Website: One of the big steps in the maturity of the Dell Software group is the launch of our very own software website, and the re-organization of the Dell Social Media properties around software. I’m jumping the gun officially, but the new is now live.

Twitter: Twitter handles will be shifting around as well. In one of those “you can’t get there from here” things, changing twitter handles isn’t so easy if you want to retain existing followers. To that end, the existing Dell Software will be repurposed for the real @dellsoftware, but since our biggest twitter following is currently on @quest, we will are renaming @dellsoftware to @dellswnews, then renaming @quest to @dellsoftware. Simple… interested in Dell Software, follow @dellsoftware from now…

I’ll post a few other updates with some news on products, awards etc. that I’ve missed in the last few months in the next few days. ++Mark.
