EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information management and storage, today presented its annual strategy update to more than 300 investors, analysts and journalists at the Equitable Center in New York City and over the world wide web. EMC executives reviewed the company's track record of delivering market-leading products and execution while detailing EMC's product development and business strategies for information lifecycle management (ILM) and VMware's Virtual Infrastructure. EMC also detailed the critically important role of resource management and information security management in its current wave of innovation.
Joe Tucci, EMC President and CEO, said, "EMC's market position has never been stronger, as measured by our customers' enthusiasm for our strategy and the consistency of our execution. Customers around the world are placing their trust in EMC and our solutions to accelerate their deployment of ILM and better protect, secure, move, and intelligently manage their information."
"Information has been EMC's central focus for the last 15 years," continued Tucci. "As we evolved from information storage to information lifecycle management, we have dramatically improved our customers' relationships with their information. Today, as we continue the most prolific new product rollout in our history, EMC is providing organizations of all sizes with new and better ways to manage the increasing complexity of their IT infrastructures and enhance the value of their information to their businesses."
Tucci and members of EMC's executive management team summarized the company's plans to capitalize on an estimated $55 billion addressable market opportunity in 2006, through helping customers at large, medium and small organizations implement ILM strategies that meet their specific information infrastructure needs. The new opportunities include an expanded focus on resource management, enabled primarily by network systems management software from EMC's recent Smarts acquisition and its own market-leading storage resource management (SRM) products. Resource management helps customers better manage their information resources, determine what resources should be available to which information, and quickly pinpoint existing and potentially disruptive events within the information infrastructure.
EMC executives also articulated the importance of making information security management pervasive throughout a customer's information infrastructure through integrated, end-to-end security management. EMC is driving information security management through leveraging existing technology assets and capabilities, new and enhanced products and services, and industry partnerships.
Diane Greene, President of VMware, the global leader in virtual infrastructure software for industry-standard systems, provided an update on the EMC subsidiary's position within the server virtualization market. She outlined VMware's open approach to the industry and its strategy to work with partners to deliver the benefits of virtual infrastructure to customers around the world.
Tucci and Bill Teuber, EMC Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, reaffirmed EMC's previously stated 2005 financial goals of 17% revenue growth and diluted earnings per share of $0.50 to $0.51 for the year. They also:
