“SWOT is an acronym for the internal Strengths and Weaknesses of a firm and the environmental Opportunities and Threats facing that firm. SWOT analysis is a widely used technique through which managers create a quick overview of a company’s strategic situation. The technique is based on the assumption that an effective strategy derives from a sound “fit” between a firm’s internal resources (strengths and weaknesses) and its external situation (opportunities and threats). A good fit maximizes a firm’s strengths and opportunities and minimizes its weaknesses and threats. Accurately applied, this simple assumption has powerful implications for the design of a successful strategy.”

Dell 

Dell is one of the world’s largest suppliers of personal computers and related products. It designs, develops, manufactures, markets, and services a range of computer systems. Despite ceding market share to Hewlett-Packard Company in the recent past, Dell continues to have a strong market position in the computer hardware segment, a platform from which it could launch a campaign for regaining the global market leadership in the PC segment. However, availability of counterfeit goods would affect the margins of the company.
