EMC Corporation, a developer and provider of information infrastructure technology and solutions, has announced the immediate availability of two key enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, and also new versions of its e-mail and file system archiving software.

The ECM solutions are aimed at providing seamless integration between EMC Documentum software and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. EMC Documentum augments and extends Office SharePoint Server 2007 by providing a single source for integrated ECM capabilities, which enable archiving, records management, business process management, imaging and classification.

With EMC Documentum Archive Services for SharePoint software, customers gain access to an enterprise infrastructure for centralized control of content that has been created and managed in SharePoint Server 2007.

EMC Documentum Content Services for SharePoint is a set of ASP.Net Web Parts allowing access to the Documentum Content Server through the SharePoint Server 2007 interface.

Content Services for SharePoint software offers customers the ability to search for content across the Documentum repository, and monitor and subscribe to critical documents. It gives direct access to the Documentum Inbox, QuickFlows and the Business Process Management System. It helps to manage document lifecycles, and support virtual documents.

Archive Services for SharePoint helps customers to archive based on metadata or events, leverage shortcuts, which archive content to Documentum while leaving a link behind in SharePoint Server 2007. Users can utilize mass transfer capabilities to move documents from SharePoint Server 2007 to Documentum, and transfer content from SharePoint Server 2007 to Documentum while retaining all rich document properties and metadata.

Jeff Teper, Corporate vice president of the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Group at Microsoft Corp., said, “Businesses are seeing an explosion of information, and enterprise content management has become a strategic imperative. Documentum delivers a variety of additional content management solutions that integrate with the enterprise content management capabilities in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and the 2007 Office system. The integrated offerings from EMC and Microsoft allow users to take full advantage of the content services, processes and policies that apply to all corporate content within the familiar applications they use every day.”

Balaji Yelamanchili, Senior vice president and General Manager of EMC’s Content Management and Archiving Group, said, “Six months ago, EMC announced an extended alliance with Microsoft aimed at helping customers better address the full range of content management requirements for both the desktop and the enterprise. Today’s announcement is a major proof point as we deliver on this commitment, answering customers’ demands for seamless integration of their work environments with enterprise-level content management.”

Also announced, the newest versions of the company’s e-mail and file system archiving software further simplify management of crucial electronically stored information (ESI) to meet internal and external governance requirements.
