  • EMC’s Tucci says Massachusetts is a talent magnet, but still plays second fiddle to Silicon Valley in tech

    BetaBoston - 10/29/2015

    EMC Corp. chief executive Joseph Tucci said Thursday that despite the acquisition of his company by Texas computer titan Dell Inc., Massachusetts’ high-tech economy still has plenty of room to boom.

    “I think it’s Massachusetts’ and Boston’s time,” said Tucci, during a forum held Thursday afternoon at Northeastern University.

    Earlier this month, Dell agreed to pay $67 billion to buy Hopkinton-based EMC, the world’s leading maker of high-end data storage hardware and software. It was the largest acquisition deal ever made for a digital technology company. But the deal also means that for the first time in decades, none of the world’s top computer hardware or software companies is based in Massachusetts, a state that once hosted several of them.
