Kevin Rollins QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And our size: The company this year is going to be close to $50 billion, so if that's the case and you can continue to grow that fast, I would rather put my energies to solving customer problems and growing our business than worrying about integrating and laying people off.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
And when the customers demand technology we move and adopt it. And right now since we're focused mostly on corporations they are not demanding it.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
But we have not been losing a ton of business because we haven't had AMD. At the end of the day we have to be profitable and grow, and so that is going to be the main indicator of what we might do. But my guess is that we are going to want to add that to our product line in the future.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Consumer electronics is a challenging one.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Everyone wants to talk about it, and right now music, flat-panel televisions, a whole host of new handheld devices are fun to talk about and very exciting to look at.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
I am sure there will come a time when we are going to use AMD. The products have been getting better. The acceptance is getting better. But we have not been suffering as a company for either growth or profitability because we haven't had AMD.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
I believe that one-product wonders come and go.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
I think right now the jury is out on where and how much profit is available in the consumer electronics industry, because if you look at the current consumer electronics players, the biggest ones on the planet struggle to make profit consistently.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
I think the economics of our competitors - the fact that no one else is making any money - is going to drive the consolidation.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
I'm the one who made many of the bold comments that we'd seen the technologies from AMD as pretty good. Their technology in many areas was leading. But those are transient.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Intel's still our main partner. We have not announced anything with AMD and don't have anything planned, but we're constantly being aware to make sure our customers get the best technology.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
It might take some here and there, but Apple's market share in the global computer business has really shrunk pretty far, and where they've been making success recently is not in the computer business but in the iPod music business.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
It's interesting: The iPod has been out for three years, and it's only this past year it's become a raging success.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Most of the services staff is for the larger corporations, not so much for small and medium businesses because they cannot afford an extensive services army.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Obviously I'm an American, so I'm going to feel pretty strongly about the U.S. being able to keep its competitive edge.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Our goal is to leverage what is already out in the field in terms of partners, but then hire in project management capability and a bit of technical capability.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Our mindset always says it's not how big the market is but how profitable it can be as the key determiner of whether or not we want to be in it.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Over the last several quarters we have been growing faster in Asia and Europe than any other place on the planet. We have 18 percent of the global PC share, about 12 percent in Europe, and 8 percent in Asia.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
So when we go into a large hardware bid, there is usually a services component that is part of that. So as we enter these deals, we tend to talk about the capabilities and what else needs to be done, and from there the bid might expand beyond hardware to the services.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
The data center isn't very sexy to write about but, frankly, that's where the money is. No. 1 is corporations and institutions.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
The weakness in the company is if we fail to execute.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
There would not be enough talent that's educated, developed and ready to take on the next leadership challenge, and it would cap our growth. Now we've put programs in place not to have that happen, but that could be a weakness.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
We are No. 1 worldwide by quite a margin on the client side and expanding, according to IDC and others, every single quarter. Our expectation is that the industry will consolidate and that more of our competitors will exit.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
We are usually selling enhanced services that surround the hardware, versus outsourcing or architecture design engagements.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
We own 18 percent of just the PC business. Now that's only about 60 percent of our business today.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
We think we have a responsibility. And I think it's important for all of us in the Western world to realize that we've all been blessed a lot and if you go to these parts they don't have a lot, even before the tsunami.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
Well, you would have to say what is the criteria to determine the success of any merger? It would have to be that the companies are stronger financially, that they took market share, and they are on a very steady footing in terms of their performance.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
What we learned several years ago was that one of our weaknesses would be if we didn't develop enough people with the know-how to run our company, it would come to the point where we would just stop.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
When I was growing up there was a product made by Sony called the Sony Walkman - a rage, everyone had to have one. Well, you don't hear about the Walkman anymore.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
When we are selling a large installation of servers or storage, we will add a menu of services items in order to facilitate the installation and the management of them. It becomes Dell-centric at that point.
Quotation of Kevin Rollins
You cannot have companies where many of the largest ones lose money indefinitely without someone finally waving the white flag, and IBM is the most recent example of that.
