Ranks #1 for Combined Computer Categories; Ranks In World’s Top 5 Across All Industries Alongside Google (#1), Apple (#2) and Facebook (#3)

Most people believe that Steve Jobs will be remembered as one of the world’s greatest innovators. Jobs is known for purportedly saying that, “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” Having spent the majority of my career around innovation and intellectual property, I agree.

In my role at EMC, I follow the world of patents closely; and it is a great honor for me to announce that IEEE’s Patent Power 2015 Scorecards has recognized EMC’s patent portfolio as being one of the very best.

IEEE’s Patent Power 2015 Scorecards, their annual roundup of who has the most valuable patent portfolios, was posted on November 30, 2015. IEEE derives their Pipeline Power score by benchmarking the patent portfolios of more than 6,000 leading commercial enterprises, academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies worldwide. They take the size of an organization’s patent portfolio, as measured by the number of U.S. patents it has been granted in the most recent full year, and weight it based on a number of other metrics that reflect the growth, impact, originality, and generality of the organization’s patent portfolio.

For Computer Software, Computer Systems and Computer Peripherals & Storage categories combined, EMC is ranked #1 – ahead of HP, IBM, Microsoft and Oracle.

When viewed across all industries and all geographies, EMC stands in rare air as well with the global elite. EMC ranked #5 overall – in good company alongside Google (#1), Apple (#2) and Facebook (#3).

My hat is off to EMC’s engineers who continue to innovate in extraordinary ways and our patent attorneys who continue to obtain high-quality patents at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) and in patent offices worldwide. Looking at the numbers, EMC has approximately 5,900 patents issued by the USPTO, of which EMC Information Infrastructure owns approximately 5,000. EMC has approximately 4,500 U.S. patent applications pending as well. These numbers are a reflection of the great team effort.

This gives EMC an incredible competitive advantage in the ability to develop and deliver consistently the best technologies to our customers to help them with their digital transformations and journeys to the hybrid cloud.

What might be overlooked in all this achievement is worthy of a closing mention. EMC’s reputation for attracting the best and brightest talent in a highly competitive market has a direct lineage to a relentless, company-wide focus on and investment in innovation. These IEEE Scorecard rankings are further proof that EMC’s innovation engine is robust and thriving.
