EMC moved up to No. 5 on this year's Best Companies To Partner With list, up from its No. 10 ranking last year.
This year the company unveiled plans to overhaul its Velocity partner program to put greater emphasis on cloud computing and big data.
On the technology front, EMC took big technology leaps when it launched its second-generation VNX storage array in September and its first all-flash storage array in November. Earlier in the year, the company hired former Symantec and Oracle executive Chirantan "CJ" Desai to head up EMC's new Emerging Technology Products Division.
