EMC Corp.’s 2012 acquisition strategy revolves more around Big Data technology than mainstream data storage. The vendor is chasing data analytics, security and the management that ties the pieces together, according to EMC president Pat Gelsinger.
Speaking at an EMC Forum in Foxborough, Mass., last week, Gelsinger said EMC would continue to be an active acquirer. He identified the data analytics market as the biggest focus of the company’s spending.
