EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), a world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced it has been positioned as a leader in the Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Content Management (ECM), Q4 2007 by Forrester Research, Inc. (November 9, 2007) EMC addresses this market with its Documentum and Captiva family of products.
This past July, EMC announced its Documentum 6 enterprise content management platform, the foundation of EMC’s broad family of ECM products that power all types of content applications, including: transactional content management, archiving, knowledge management, compliance, and interactive content management applications. The Documentum 6 platform simplifies the way in which content applications are built, configured, and deployed. With its service-oriented architecture, Eclipse-based development, and extensive configuration capabilities, Documentum 6 revolutionizes the development of content applications.
“Today’s announcement is not only a symbol of our position as a leader in the enterprise content management market, but also is clear reflection of our forward-looking strategy for this space,” said Balaji Yelamanchili, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Content Management and Archiving at EMC. “Led by the power of Documentum 6 and our services-based approach to content management, EMC is truly changing the way organizations build, configure, and deploy today’s content applications.”
EMC achieved a position as a leader in the Forrester Wave report on enterprise content management based on the breadth and depth of its ECM portfolio. According to Forrester, “[Leaders] don’t just have breadth, they also have a broad range of information management tools helping I&KM pros manage, secure, and retain data and content. Their portfolios include a mix of data management, business intelligence, broad integration support (including content integration), storage management, and security technologies aimed at improving how information is managed.”
The EMC Documentum product family helps customers manage various types of content-intensive business processes using a unified content management platform. Coupled with the Documentum virtual repository, groups can easily share and reuse content with other business areas that would benefit from information access. The product family also allows content to be shared securely within and outside organizations, including partners, vendors and customers. Additionally, the EMC Documentum family excels at providing rich collaboration, compliance, records management, Web and rich media management, and archiving services to deliver the breadth of content management services required by today’s business needs. With the EMC Captiva family, companies can transform business-critical information from paper, fax and electronic data sources into business-ready content suitable for processing by a wide variety of applications.
