Mark Lewis, EMC's new CTO and executive vice president of new ventures, hasn't had to spend a lot of time familiarizing himself with the company. After all, over the past 18 years he's been in leadership roles at the storage businesses of Digital, Compaq and most recently Hewlett-Packard Co., duking it out with EMC on a regular basis.
