EMC adds consultants with Internosis buy

Add a little here, lose a lot there

EMC has snapped up Maryland-based storage consultancy Internosis Inc just days after announcing it would part company with 1,000 existing staff this year.

The companies did not reveal how much the deal is worth, but said it would add 250 professionals to EMC’s roster. Internosis has a particular focus on Microsoft environments, and will form a Microsoft Practice within EMC’s Technology Solutions business.

Last week, EMC announced it would be waving goodbye to about 1,000 staff this year, at a cost of about $80m. This “rebalancing” programme is part of the firm’s effort to increase “focus on new product development and the company’s ability to focus on new product development and its ability to target, reach and support more customers around the globe.”®
