EMC Cited by Independent Research Firm as An Enterprise Content Management Leader

Hopkinton, Mass.-Monday, October 10, 2005

EMC Corporation, the world leader in information storage and management, was recognized as a leader in the “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Content Management Suites, Q3 2005” report. Forrester recognized EMC as a leader based on the strength of EMC’s enterprise content management (ECM) strategy and EMC Documentum product offering. According to the report, “EMC’s strategy is to provide a broad, common platform for managing all unstructured content within an enterprise. This strategy is supported by a product road map focused on platform unification and interoperability with all Documentum products.”

“Documentum 5.3 offers ECM breadth and strong document management,” the report continued. “EMC Documentum also scored above average in extended capabilities, thanks to its investment in enterprise search, content integration, and team collaboration through eRoom. EMC complements its ECM capability breadth with an infrastructure-oriented information life-cycle management strategy.”

The report continued, “The EMC Documentum 5.3 suite is based on a services-oriented architecture (SOA). IT developers have a pool of more than 350 common J2EE components – components utilized by Documentum for each ECM application – for use in custom application development. Documentum 5.3 also provides a Web services layer and a business object framework combining data structures and application logic into higher-level business objects.”

Dave DeWalt, President, EMC Software, said, “As the Forrester Wave report accurately notes, ‘IT decision-makers will increasingly seek a broad, common, yet comprehensive enterprise content management platform as an extension of their existing IT infrastructure.’ EMC is driving this trend with the EMC Documentum enterprise content management platform, a key component of EMC’s industry-leading offerings for information lifecycle management (ILM).”

Announced in March 2005, the EMC Documentum 5.3 platform is the world’s first major ECM offering based on a completely unified architecture. It represents a significant innovation over today’s more loosely integrated platforms and raises the bar on customers’ expectations for an ECM platform.

Documentum 5.3 is a highly scalable infrastructure for unstructured information – a unified repository and set of services that are completely accessible by the masses of applications, desktops and systems that are spread across an enterprise. Documentum 5.3 is helping customers graduate from traditional content services that only address the creation, management, delivery and archival of content. With Documentum 5.3, customers can implement a completely unified content stack that includes process and repository services to provide increased functionality and flexibility in collaboration, automation and security.
