EMC and Microsoft Form New ECM Alliance

Oct 06, 2006

EMC Corporation and Microsoft Corp. have announced a new enterprise content management (ECM) alliance aimed at helping to enable organizations to become People-Ready with their compliance, regulatory, and other critical business data. This alliance is designed to enable information workers to take advantage of the Microsoft tools and applications they use every day to access and contribute to the critical business processes available in their ECM infrastructure.

As part of this alliance, EMC will introduce a set of new content and archiving products designed to enable tighter integration between the EMC Documentum ECM platform and Microsoft solutions and platform technologies. EMC will bring to market new solutions that integrate the EMC Documentum platform with multiple Microsoft solutions and platform technologies including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, the 2007 Microsoft Office system, SQL Server 2005, and enterprise search solutions. With this new alliance SharePoint users can take advantage of the advanced ECM capabilities of the Documentum platform. Information workers will be able to access the Documentum platform natively from within Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and the Microsoft Office system.
