EMC fires and hires

The firings are happening as a result of Global Restructuring and the hirings coming from the new markets and growth.

Quoting "The Patriot Ledger":

In October 2006, EMC announced 1,250 employees would be let go as part of a restructuring plan, said Michael Gallant, spokesman for the data storage giant. The latest round of layoffs, involving about one-third of those employees, was scheduled to be finished by New Year’s Day.

Gallant would not say how many jobs would be cut at EMC’s headquarters in Hopkinton or at its other offices in Massachusetts. He said EMC employs about 9,000 people in the state. That represents a 270-person increase from the company’s in-state employment level in September 2006.

EMC didn’t target any one piece of its business with its recent layoffs, Gallant said. The company looked at positions it deemed redundant, particularly ‘‘all layers of management’’ and ‘‘general and administrative’’ jobs, he said.

The maker and supplier of data storage equipment and software is expanding and is not laying off any more employees than it had planned in October 2006, Gallant said, although he could not comment about prospective cuts for 2008.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
