EMC: Past, Present And Future On Display

The primary impression I came away with from EMC’s 2012 Industry Analyst Summit related to how dynamic and elemental the company’s transformation has been since 2001, when Joe Tucci became president and CEO. In essence, the past decade has seen EMC move from being a preeminent vendor of enterprise storage solutions to one whose interests and influence extend to wherever data resides—which is most everywhere.

Some of that evolution resulted from the more than 40 acquisitions the company completed during that time but much has transpired within. In any case, these shifts have certainly had practical benefits: In 2002, EMC’s annual revenues were $5.4B, while in 2012, they were quadruple that amount: $21.6B.
