EMC Rumbles On as the Ultimate Data Center Survivor - Businessweek

Excerpt from an EMC profile
"About 10 years ago, it would have been easy to peg EMC as a lost cause. It sold super-expensive storage systems that a dwindling number of customers wanted—and that was just about all it sold. Today, it has a huge software portfolio that stretches from data management to security and analytics. Crucially, EMC bought VMware (VMW) in 2004 as well. It’s hard to think of a better acquisition done by any company in the last decade. EMC bought the most disruptive data center technology of its era without really disrupting its own storage business and helped transform the investment profile of the company."
