EMC’s Gelsinger Plans $3 Billion for ‘Big Data’ Analysis Deals - The Boston Globe

Big plans for big data

EMC Corp. may spend about $3 billion on acquisitions this year, keeping pace with last year’s tally, as it expands beyond storage computers into complex data analysis, chief operating officer Pat Gelsinger said.

Hopkinton, Mass.-based EMC will use deals to add tools and services that help customers speed decisions based on combing through so-called “big data,’’ reams of information from multiple sources, including the Web, e-mail, and computer systems, Gelsinger said in an interview.
