EMC buys Australian company
EMC Corp. bought closely held Infra Corp. of Australia to gain software for automating computer services.
Infra, based in Sydney, sells software that lets information technology help desks automate tasks such as resolving system failures, EMC spokeswoman Lesley Ogrodnick said in an e-mailed message. Its competitors include Hewlett-Packard Co., BMC Software Inc. and CA Inc.
Since 2003, EMC Chief Executive Officer Joe Tucci has spent almost $8 billion acquiring companies focused on programs and services. Tucci has used the acquisitions to broaden EMC's offerings beyond hardware. Infra will become part of EMC's Resource Management Software Group and keep its brand name. Its 150 employees will be retained, Ogrodnick said.
