Digital business transformation is top of mind for businesses today, creating a new set of imperatives for IT, including greater IT capacity and competition for the best engineering resources. At EMC, we are fortunate to have approximately 16,000 engineers and developers worldwide who are encouraged to work collaboratively with our customers and across our industry ecosystem. As they develop innovative technology solutions, our engineers want to be recognized not only for bringing new technology and products to market but for their impact on the broader IT ecosystem and development of the industry. That’s why we recognize our top engineers as Fellows and Distinguished Engineers. What sets this elite cohort apart isn’t just their technical expertise and technical impact, but their ability to catalyze the engineering community and transform the industry to use technology innovation to solve business problems.
Innovation at EMC is about more than developing new technology. It’s also about being able to take that technology to market, impact the industry, and ultimately change the world. Bringing new solutions to market is not easy nor is it inexpensive. Our engineers see EMC as a place with the ability and willingness to invest heavily in innovation — plus the scale and experience to bring new technology to market successfully. This experience attracts some of the industry’s most accomplished technologists to EMC, where new colleagues get to learn from some of the great IT innovators of our time. Recently, EMC’s Radia Perlman was inducted into the prestigious Inventor’s Hall of Fame. EMC Global CTO, John Roese describes Radia’s accomplishments that led to her induction and the benefits our new engineers get from working at EMC with world class innovators like Radia.
