If you’re not participating in Momentum at EMC World, I want to encourage you to follow @EMCdocumentum and join the LIVE keynote session happening NOW (1:30 PM PDT) on Periscope. If you cannot join us today, you can listen to a replay of the keynote session here later this week.
You’ll learn about some of our key announcements, including the following:
Unveiling of “Project Horizon”. A few small apps for users, one giant LEAP for ECM: Today, I am pleased to share with you the announcement of EMC LEAP, a suite of purpose-built, cloud-native content apps. These apps will revolutionize the content management industry and transform interactions with business content. EMC LEAP apps are designed with your users in mind, providing an intuitive user experience for a diverse set of business use cases.
- Our goal with the EMC LEAP family is to humanize the experience of engaging and interacting with business content. This level of engagement enables superior customer service, greater agility and new business opportunities, and is a key marker of a successful digital business.
- We are also launching an umbrella customer and partner success program called LEAP Together.
- LEAP Together for Customers: EMC LEAP apps are interoperable with existing content repositories, but engineered to work “better together” with the Documentum family. For our existing customers, EMC is offering a revolutionary Loyalty Tier, granting free access to our new LEAP suite of apps. This is designed to reward customers for their continued loyalty to the Documentum family of products.
- LEAP Together for Partners: We’re expanding support for our robust and vibrant partner community, by launching a new SaaS Solution Provider Track within the ECD Business Partner Program. As new apps become generally available, partners will have the opportunity to resell apps and services, with additional program features to be launched later this year.
Making petabyte scale and compliant archiving as easy as pie: We are also proud and excited to share the release of EMC® InfoArchive™ 4.0, a unified enterprise platform that powers extreme compliant archiving scenarios at petabyte scale. EMC InfoArchive 4.0 provides organizations with the ability to secure and leverage large amounts of critical application data and content to empower modern-day business success. It includes a completely new, horizontally scalable architecture, combining flexible reporting and easy accessibility to make vast amounts of data and content available. Yet, it has such a small footprint, it can run on a Raspberry Pi ($35 computer). EMC InfoArchive 4.0 helps your business optimize and modernize data center and application environments.
Customer and cloud-first approach: And finally, we’re taking a new, cloud-first approach to our existing products and solutions to take enhance our customers’ experience with Documentum. Our next Documentum release will be run in the EMC cloud by ECD first, allowing us to improve the deployment, upgrade and maintenance process. We’re identifying Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) benefits that can be achieved, testing them, and then confirming these results later this year. We expect this approach – plus our multitude of offerings available through Documentum as a Service – will provide our customers with choice, improved time to market and superior experience with our solutions.
We are thrilled to share our next-generation ECM strategy and continue the journey with you as we build upon our 26-year heritage of innovation and quality in pursuit of ECM excellence. We look forward to exploring what’s next in our business partnership.
