EMC buys Internosis
EMC Corp. yesterday announced it has acquired Internosis Inc., a privately held North American-based IT services firm that specializes in strategy, application development, infrastructure and managed services for Microsoft environments.

The acquisition is a key step in EMC's professional services evolution, extending EMC's capabilities to build and deliver tightly integrated solutions around application infrastructure, the company said.

"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," said Derrell James, senior VP, EMC Technology Solutions. "The addition of Internosis's extremely talented people and world-class processes to our own growing professional services and solutions business will help to further accelerate customer adoption of information lifecycle management solutions. The addition also will improve on our ability to provide specialized services and complete solutions for our customers' rapidly growing Microsoft-based environments."

Based in Greenbelt, Maryland, Internosis's nearly 250 service professionals apply processes and solutions to help clients minimize risk and maximize productivity around directory services, knowledge management, collaboration and end-to-end migrations.

"Few companies in IT have EMC's combination of a strong brand, industry-leading products, solutions and service, and an 'A-list' of enterprise customers," Robert Stalick, Internosis's CEO said. "We're very excited to join forces with EMC and accelerate the delivery of EMC information lifecycle management solutions in Microsoft environments."

Internosis will become the Microsoft Practice within EMC Technology Solutions, EMC's professional services organization. Internosis's services will be marketed and sold primarily through EMC's North American sales channels and business partners.

Details of the transaction are not being disclosed, EMC said.
