I’ve been involved in Formula 1 Racing since 2010. There’s nothing more exhilarating that the start of a Grand Prix… the revving of engines, the strategy and science behind each race, the necessity for precision, the flawless choreography of today’s modern pit stop and, of course, the sleek elegance and aerodynamics of the cars’ bodywork. Formula 1 is about precision, speed, efficiency, and leaving absolutely no room for error.


In 2014, the sport is undergoing the most disruptive rule changes in its history. New mandates include smaller engines—a move from V-8 engines to “greener” 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engines. In other words, Lotus F1 Team needs to redesign everything to be smaller and more efficient—yet equally powerful.  These rules require we leverage every single bit of intelligence we have in order to identify and uncover new opportunities for design breakthroughs.

Lafarge Cuts Costs to Cement Strategy for Growth

EMC Pulse

When the global economy hit the skids a few years ago, many companies responded instinctually: aggressively and sometimes haphazardly slashing expenses. Looking back, however, drastic and across-the-board financial pruning may not have been the right move.  Organizations that invested through the downturn in order to create longer-term efficiencies and drive innovation have emerged fiscally stronger and in better position for continued growth.

Lafarge is a perfect example of such a company. With business units in 64 countries and €15.8 billion ($20.3B) in sales, the company is a worldwide leader in building materials — principally cement, aggregates and concrete.

“The partnership between EMC and Lotus F1 Team provides us the IT technology we need to become world champion.”  Patrick Louis, CEO of Lotus F1 Team, on today’s announcement of a technology partnership including EMC, VCE and Lotus F1 Team.
