NetworkWorld: Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell, and Samuel Palmisano, chairman and CEO of IBM, are calling on U.S. government leaders to promote innovation and make the country more competitive. Their comments highlighted partisan bickering in Congress, the huge national deficit, and high corporate tax rates. "None of us could run those kinds of debts and keep our jobs," Palmisano said. "We are in a financial crisis, so let's wake up and act like it."
The pair also said the government could greatly improve ROI by consolidating and modernizing its data centers.
