EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today announced that it was named to the InformationWeek 500 for the fifth consecutive year. The annual list of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology was revealed last night during an awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, Calif.
“We’re ecstatic,” said Sanjay Mirchandani, EMC®’s Chief Information Officer. “Over the last few years, EMC has tackled numerous enterprise-impacting IT initiatives across our organization – virtualizing our environment, moving into the cloud, revamping our line-of-business systems, and building a new, state-of-the-art cloud data center in Durham, NC. Together, these initiatives provide EMC with the IT foundation to support our business today and as we continue to grow for the future. This award is testament to our team’s continued hard work and innovation.”
EMC has been designated one of the top 250 companies by InformationWeek for its continued pursuit in pushing the boundaries of IT innovation. A shining example of this is EMC’s world-class, highly virtualized cloud data center, in Durham, NC. Built on an x86 enterprise architecture and leveraging EMC, VCE, and VMware technologies, EMC’s Durham data center is a showcase of how to drive operational efficiency and excellence by rationalizing, consolidating and virtualizing data centers en route to the cloud.
“The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year’s innovations were particularly impressive,” said InformationWeek Editor-In-Chief Rob Preston. “What the editors looked for are unconventional approaches—new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT.”
