EMC Q4 revenue increases 11%

Global cloud computing and big data leader EMC unveiled an 11% year-on-year rise in fourth-quarter revenues, adding that full-year revenue for 2013 was $23.2bn (€17bn) — 7% ahead of 2012 levels.

The NYSE-quoted company employs 3,000 people in Dublin and Cork, and said operations here are “a strategic part” of its global operation.

It added it significantly upped its market share in Ireland during the year.

“Through our CoE [Centre of Excellence] in Cork, one of the largest development sites outside the US, our skilled workforce... [is] a critical piece in helping the company to lead a transformative era in information technology,” said Bob Savage, managing director of the CoE.

New customers who deployed EMC solutions in Ireland last year included Tullow Oil, UDG Healthcare, the HSE, the Department of Education, Eircom, Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, and TSSG in Waterford IT.

“EMC gained significant market share in Ireland this year,” added EMC’s country manager in Ireland, Gerry Murray.
