Dell is preparing to sell social media consultancy services, putting it up against digital agencies, enterprise-oriented businesses such as Salesforce, and potentially its own agency, WPP's Team Dell.

"They want to reposition themselves away from being the PC-based hardware provider into a more strategic business services provider," says Forrester analyst Peter O'Neill.
