Our Application Services business that Prasad will lead presents a great opportunity for Dell as we help our customers modernize and take advantage of digital transformation opportunities," Dell CEO and Chairman Michael Dell said in a statement.

Thrikutam, a 22-year industry veteran will lead a global team of nearly 10,000 employees responsible for driving Dell's Application Services business across all vertical industry segments, a company release said.

"Prasad is a proven leader who joins a strong Services executive team. His addition to Dell's leadership is another example of the investments we're making in growing the Services business," Dell said.
