The Department of Defence’s $8.2 million contract with EMC for the renewal of Hardware/Software Maintenance was the largest reported on AusTender last week (7-11 March 2016).

The contract is EMC’s first with Defence since March 2015 and its largest so far in 2015-16, according to Intermedium’s Analyse IT tool. It will run between 22 February 2016 and 4 September 2016.

Excluding the recent Defence contract, EMC is ranked 68th on the 2015-16 Intermedium Supplier Leader Board with its 19 contracts totalling $10.6 million. EMC has signed a total of 279 contracts worth $181.8 million since Intermedium began collecting contracting data in 2009-10.

Dell commenced its acquisition of EMC, estimated to be worth $91 billion, in October 2015. The deal has been described as the largest takeover/acquisition in the history of the international technology market.
