EMC not square, opens new code streams to GitHub

EMC’s Enterprise Content Division (ECD) has announced enhancements to its developer programme by making a new body of open source code accessible to users on GitHub.


The initiative is intended to provide free sample code across a variety of ECD products to help third parties develop new solutions based on EMC’s content management technology.

The firm claims that ‘ECD’ (Ed — it’s now a thing and a term) is building on a growing EMC presence on GitHub, which includes numerous open source contributions such as CoprHD, REX-Ray and RackHD being driven through EMC {code}.

EMC Documentum

Sample code for the EMC Documentum platform is currently available on the GitHub site, with additional ECD code samples coming in the future.

Jeroen van Rotterdam is CTO of ECD at EMC and he is the man tasked with putting forward the company line of these most recent developments.

“The availability of ECD sample code, EMC’s investment in co-innovation programs and our developer track at Momentum at EMC World, are just a few examples of how we support the developer community. We expect that this initiative will increase interactions and provide additional tools to our users to optimise visibility and inspire new forms of innovation,” said van Rotterdam.
