EMC My Documentum broadens access

EMC has unveiled EMC My Documentum, a family of products that allows everyone in the organisation to utilise EMC Documentum enterprise content management (ECM) functionalities directly from common desktop applications, according to CNNMoney.

With the My Documentum family of applications, all business-critical information is accessible, controlled and archived for governance and compliance requirements without the user having to leave their everyday application.

By providing integrations to common applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Windows Explorer and Microsoft SharePoint, the My Documentum family extends sophisticated ECM capabilities to every desktop.

Armedia releases Caliente 3.0

Armedia, a provider of content management products and solutions, has released an upgraded version of its ECM content migration application, Armedia Caliente, reports Reuters.

Caliente 3.0 is a server-based application which enables automated importing and exporting of content and metadata from designated file folders or relational database tables into and out of an ECM repository.

Caliente currently integrates directly with the EMC Documentum, Microsoft Sharepoint and Alfresco content management repositories.

Content management tools rarely used

Enterprise content management, according to John Shackleton, chief executive and president of Open Text, is still at an extremely early stage of maturity, with deployment of these technologies at a very low level among corporates, states V3.

Shackleton argues that despite his company's success as one of the biggest ECM players around, the firm is penetrating less than 20% of the market.

He added that some technology vendors that have tried to enter the ECM space have done little to advance the industry, in areas such as streaming video.
