EMC Releases Enterprise Content Management Solutions

EMC Corporation, a provider in information infrastructure solutions, today announced two new enterprise content management (ECM) solutions — helping customers to more quickly deploy content-enabled applications that drive better business efficiency and realize more rapid return on their investments (ROI). Covering case management and document management, the new solutions include:

  • A new EMC Documentum Case Management Solution Framework, which substantially accelerates the development of case management applications
  • EMC Documentum ApplicationXtender 6 with new modules for workflow and retention management
  • In addition, EMC will conduct the first true demonstration of an implementation of Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) in its booth #825 at the AIM Conference. 

Announced in September 2008, CMIS is a jointly developed specification which uses Web Services and Web 2.0 interfaces to enable applications to interoperate with multiple ECM repositories from different vendors. EMC worked with the AIIM iECM Committee, Alfresco and Nuxeo to develop a demonstration that shows the use of CMIS to access several content management repositories in a common and unified manner.

EMC documentum case management solution framework
Case management is a pattern of work commonly used in almost all industries—such as financial services, public sector and healthcare—that requires a group of people to systematically process and collaborate on a case folder that consists of both content and data.  Traditionally, building case management applications have been cumbersome and time-consuming as well as difficult to maintain particularly when changes are needed to adjust the application to a new set of business requirements.
The Case Management Solution Framework enables system integrators and application partners as well as internal IT developers to build case management solutions up to 50 percent faster and at a significantly reduced cost. The Case Management Solution Framework includes:

  • Pre-integrated technologies utilizing the core capabilities of the EMC Documentum platform—business process management, content management, document capture, collaboration, customer communications management and compliance
  • A tutorial that illustrates the creation of  a case management solution
  • A case management sample application and other best practices covering application development and deployment
  • An Express Install tool which provides single-click installation of all the components needed for case management on a single server
  • This combination of capabilities allow partners and customers to "configure more and code less" as well as reduce project risks by utilizing a solid, consistent and repeatable solutions platform.

EMC documentum applicationXtender 6
ApplicationXtender is a market-leading departmental document management solution that delivers rapid ROI for organizations with limited IT budgets and supporting resources. The solution provides out-of-the box capabilities that allow departments to manage content such as images, documents and reports.  Built on a central repository, ApplicationXtender provides capabilities for high-speed image capture and storage and is designed for quick deployment.

New features in ApplicationXtender 6 include:

  • A Workflow Manager module for creating departmental workflow solutions designed to improve efficiency in business processes.  Built on Microsoft .NET, it provides out-of-the-box workflow samples, a user-friendly process designer and built-in reporting tools—everything business users need to design, implement and manage their processes without IT support.
  • A Retention Manager module for applying automatic retention capabilities such as holds, reporting, disposals and audits trails to documents to ensure regulatory compliance.

As one of the largest public employers in the state of Arkansas, with over 9,600 employees, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) uses ApplicationXtender as a cost-effective system to scan all types of paper documents and store them in an easily searchable repository.
The Case Management Solution Framework and ApplicationXtender 6 are available now.
