<p>SYDNEY, Australia – April 26, 2005 – EMC Corporation, the world leader in information storage and management, was the #1 provider of storage management software based on new license revenue for the sixth consecutive year in 2004 and gained the most revenue share among the ten largest providers, according to a new report released by Gartner [a]. In 2004 EMC extended its worldwide storage management software lead by more than two percentage points, reaching 29.5 per cent new license revenue market share. EMC grew new storage management software license revenue 21.2 per cent during the year, nearly twice the market growth rate of 12.3 per cent.</p>
<p>Howard Elias, EMC executive vice president of Corporate Marketing and Office of Technology, said, “EMC’s storage and information management software continues to differentiate us from the storage software industry pack. We believe our 2004 growth was fuelled by our ability to help customers of all sizes save money, reduce complexity, mitigate risk, comply with government regulations and better support their businesses. We expect this trend to accelerate as we leverage our broadened portfolio of systems, software and services to help customers implement information lifecycle management.”</p>
<p>The new Gartner report comes less than a week after EMC reported results for the first quarter of 2005. EMC’s software license and maintenance revenues grew 26 per cent compared to the first quarter of 2004, representing 37 per cent of total EMC revenues (Read “EMC Reports First Quarter Results” at</p>
