Throughout this report, we refer to EMC Corporation, together with its
subsidiaries, as �EMC,� �we,� �us,� or �the Company.�
EMC's mission is to lead businesses and service providers to transform
information technology (�IT�) operations to an �as a service� model (�ITaaS�).
ITaaS offers a dramatically more efficient delivery model that helps transform
IT organizations from cost centers to value drivers that are more agile, more
cost-effective and more responsive to business needs.
We manage our business as three federated businesses, each of which plays a
vital role in the delivery of ITaaS: EMC Information Infrastructure, Pivotal and
VMware Virtual Infrastructure. As data centers move to an ITaaS model, managing
information becomes central to their operations.
