The Brazil Big Data Research and Development Center was established by EMC Corporation. EMC is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver information technology as a service (ITaaS). Fundamental to this transformation is Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Trust. Through innovative products and services, EMC accelerates the journey to cloud computing, helping IT departments to store, manage, protect and analyze their most valuable asset — information — in a more agile, trusted and cost-efficient way. Big Data is the foundation for creating new levels of business value. With integrated storage, analytics, and applications, Big Data helps drive efficiency, quality, and personalized products and services, producing higher levels of customer satisfaction and experience. Critical to all of this is Trust. EMC products, services, and solutions help them to ensure availability of their applications and systems, identify and repel cyber security threats, and protect their data.

Who We Are:

In 2011, EMC Corporation announced an additional $100 million investment in Brazil to strengthen its applied research and development capabilities within the Latin American and Global marketplaces. The Brazil Research and Development Center (BRDC) will house EMC research staff whose main activity is to conduct applied research related to Big Data challenges encountered within the Oil & Gas industry. The BRDC is being created in the heart of the Rio Technology Park on the campus of the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. The facility houses an applied research center, solutions development laboratories, and an Executive Briefing Center (EBC) which is designed to showcase and disseminate EMC technology. This EBC is the first in Latin America.
