Rapid pace of change
Rick Devenuti, president of EMC's information intelligence group, told EMC Momentum Vienna 2012 the world of IT is changing at rapid pace and that the growth presents many new challenges. For example the EMC Documentum Information Rights Management (IRM) 5.1 is design to secure user access: “Users can access the resources they need and IT gets to sleep at night,” said Rick Devenuti.
Devenuti said today’s releases are the largest in Documentum history.
Devenuti said: “EMC is pleased to deliver such a comprehensive set of products and solutions, aimed at bringing new levels of agility, productivity and intelligence to the enterprise.
"The Information Intelligence Group is focused on helping our customers transform their IT and business operations with cloud solutions to connect information to work; the integrated innovation in this new wave of releases drives us forward on that journey.”
On the new releases Melissa Webster, vice-president of content and digital media technologies at IDC, told EMC Momentum Vienna 2012: “Customers are increasingly seeking out integrated solutions to manage their unstructured information throughout its life cycle.
“There is growing awareness of the need to maximize the value of content assets in all phases of that life cycle -- from collaborative content creation and sharing, to the intelligent use of content to drive business processes, to discovery and governance -- and of the benefits of a comprehensive, integrated single-vendor solution.”
1,100 people are expected to attend the conference at the Messe Wien Congress Centre this week.
