The Information Technology 100



Talk about dominance. EMC, the leader in storage hardware and software, is just plain kicking butt these days. In the first quarter, according to market researcher IDC, EMC extended its market share lead in each segment where it plays. Typically, the storage leaders take turns holding the momentum lead -- as each launches its new products. But EMC has held off fresh assaults by Hitachi and IBM.

Keys to growth are its mid-range storage systems and its software products. CEO Joe Tucci is counting on his information lifecycle management strategy to keep EMC growing briskly, even as hardware becomes more commoditized. ILM helps corporations manage their data smartly by moving it between different kinds of storage devices with different access speeds and costs.
