Hopkinton, Mass. — EMC Corp., a provider of information infrastructure solutions, announced the EMC Documentum Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Suite version 6.5—a family of products that marries the user experience of Web 2.0 and the strength of the enterprise—on a platform designed to deliver a balance between business agility and IT control.

Web 2.0 enables new ways for people to work and collaborate. However, security and compliance concerns are preventing many organizations from fully embracing Web 2.0 technologies or worse, leaving them open to risks as end users experiment with applications on their own, says EMC, Hopkinton, Mass. In addition, the volume of incoming information from Web 2.0 applications is equally threatening and requires that systems scale to meet the increased performance demands of a Web 2.0 world.

"The explosion of digital content combined with the ease of use of Web 2.0 and social computing fuel users' expectations for how technology should work and how they should access information," says Melissa Webster, program VP, content and digital media technologies at IDC. "As a result, IT is faced with a new challenge of meeting these heightened expectations while providing a secure information infrastructure. The next generation of ECM needs to provide business users with appealing and flexible content-enabled solutions while ensuring that IT continues to maintain control by mitigating these new elements of risk."

Documentum ECM 6.5 introduces several key innovations that offer a rich Web 2.0 user experience and enhanced XML capabilities, while delivering improved enterprise performance and scalability, federated records management as well as accelerated transactional business processes. For the first time, companies will be able to leverage the appeal of newer technologies for users, improve the existing content applications already in use, and power all of these with a more scalable and secure ECM platform than ever before available.

By marrying the best of the user experience models with robust ECM capabilities, Documentum ECM 6.5 extends the value of ECM to a much broader set of users, creating new ways for them to work and collaborate.

Community based authoring, which is common in Web 2.0 technologies, is changing the format and increasing the amount of content being generated. Users expect content to be automatically delivered, combined, and repurposed as digital mash-ups to suit the personalized context in which they work. XML is a key enabler for achieving this flexibility by allowing highly granular access to and assembly of all types of information.

The enhanced XML capabilities in Documentum ECM 6.5 are delivered through Documentum XML Store, a new native XML database available within the Documentum platform and related content delivery applications. A market first, says the company, EMC provides an integrated, end-to-end solution for creating, managing, accessing, archiving and delivering XML alongside all other types of enterprise content. Documentum's XML capabilities consist of robust management of XML documents and components, high-performance search and query of XML content, dynamic delivery and content transformation applications for content repurposing and personalized publishing as well as solutions for Technical Publications (DITA) and Aerospace and Defense (S1000D).
