Storage heavyweight EMC has recorded Australian growth of 34 percent year on year for the second quarter 2004, in line with its parent's results, the company's Australian and New Zealand managing director, Steve Redman, said.
Redman told ZDNet Australia both divisions of the company's business -- enterprise, which services its top-100 accounts and commercial, which serviced clients below that level -- experienced growth for the quarter.
EMC on Tuesday in the US reported total consolidated revenue for the second quarter of US$1.97 billion -- 33 percent higher than the US$1.48 billion reported for the second quarter of 2003.
Redman said the company won 66 new clients in Australia and New Zealand during the quarter, while mainstays such as financial services heavyweights the National Australia Bank, the ANZ and St George "continued to be good EMC customers".
He attributed part of the increase to the dilution of the market perspective that EMC offered "high-end products with high-end pricing".
