"This quarter's results were driven by the strength of our diverse model, with our storage, commercial client and VMware businesses performing very well," said Tom Sweet, chief financial officer, Dell Technologies. "We remain focused on long-term profitable growth, growing faster than competitors and the industry, growing operating income and EPS faster than revenue and generating strong cash flow over time."
