EMC's Juggling Act: Page 4 of 5

While Luminate has been selling software for several years, it recently adopted a new business model and was attempting to sell application monitoring services to corporate customers.

EMC has commandeered Luminate's web site and refuses to divulge any further details about the company until it has a better idea of how it plans to integrate the software.

"The results of the acquisition will become more obvious over time, as the product strategy develops," says Dave Farmer, communications spokesperson at EMC.

According to experts, EMC will likely integrate Luminate's toolset into its overall ECC (EMC Control Center) software management framework to add more value.

Luminate has about 50 employees who will remain at the company’s Redwood City office under the leadership of their current CEO, Bruce Fram.
