EMC Empowers Broad Range of Organizations to Reap the Benefits of XML
May 13, 2008 (08:05 AM EDT)


HOPKINTON, Mass., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- EMC Corporation , the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today unveiled two new EMC Documentum products designed to bring the power of XML (eXtensible Markup Language) technology to a broader range of enterprise information. EMC Documentum XML Store and Documentum Dynamic Delivery Services represent an important milestone in EMC's expanded commitment to XML as the underpinning for a variety of content formats, as well as the technology that facilitates convergence of structured and unstructured information.

"Far too often, companies cannot exploit their content, unable to break down the silos between unstructured and structured information," said Rita Knox, Research Vice President, Gartner, Inc. "XML technologies and solutions are quickly becoming the answer for those companies hoping to unlock the intelligence captured in all forms of information by identifying their meaning and relationships."

Leading today's announcement is EMC Documentum XML Store, a new native XML repository that seamlessly integrates into the Documentum platform to provide fast and scalable XML processing. Unlike other enterprise content management (ECM) products and XML point solutions, the Documentum repository gives organizations a full range of ECM management for their XML content, along with new capabilities for granular content reuse, standards-based search/retrieval, dynamic publishing, and archiving.

Documentum XML Store is the foundation for the second product announced today, EMC Documentum Dynamic Delivery Services. This server-based content delivery technology dramatically improves the way XML can be delivered dynamically to various applications. With Documentum Dynamic Delivery Services, organizations can transform traditional content publishing from a static activity to an on-demand process where personalized, relevant content is delivered to users based on their specific requests, preferences and profiles.

As XML has become the de facto standard for representing all types of information, many organizations have adopted it as a self-describing data format that enables application integration, improves information access, enables repurposed content and satisfies record retention requirements. With the addition of Documentum XML Store to the Documentum enterprise content management platform, XML can be now be a driver for any type of content-rich application using office documents, blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, mash-ups, business processes, or messages.

"Customers today face a tremendous challenge in effectively harnessing their unstructured information -- the very content that drives a majority of business processes," said Balaji Yelamanchili, Senior Vice President and General Manager, EMC Content Management and Archiving. "With these announcements, EMC now provides the market's very best ECM capabilities for XML content -- offering a powerful, standards-based XML information repository within an enterprise content management system. The end result is an integrated, end-to-end solution for creating, managing, accessing, archiving, and delivering XML alongside all forms of enterprise information."

Documentum Dynamic Delivery Services embeds XML Store to aggregate and cache content from any number of source systems. Documentum XML Store's full text engine and one of the industry's fastest XQuery engines combine to support search and retrieval of any type of content. Output documents are dynamically constructed from content fragments, and Documentum Dynamic Delivery Services' scalable architecture allows it to serve high volumes of personalized requests.

EMC's Documentum XML Store and Documentum Dynamic Delivery Services are available now. More information on EMC's content management products can be found at http://www.emc.com/products/category/content-management.htm
