EMC acquires Internosis

Storage giant buys privately held company that provides IT services for corporations that use Microsoft applications.

EMC, the storage and information management giant, has acquired a privately held services company called Internosis.

Internosis, a Greenbelt, Md.-based company, focuses on IT strategy, application development, infrastructure and managed services for corporations that use Microsoft applications.

"As a best-of-breed provider of services and solutions in Microsoft-oriented application infrastructure and development, Internosis significantly expands EMC's services reach and capabilities," Derrell James, EMC Technology Solutions senior vice president, said in a statement.

Internosis will become the Microsoft Practice within EMC Technology Solutions, the company's professional services group. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The acquisition follows on the heels of EMC's announcement last week that it plans to cut about 1,000 positions, or roughly 4 percent of its work force, as it restructures.

Hopkinton, Mass.-based EMC made two other acquisitions in the fall. One involved data archiving specialist Acartus. The other was a $275 million deal to acquire Captiva Software, which transforms paper documents into digital copies.
