ATHENS, Greece, Momentum Europe 2009, November 10, 2009 - 

November 10, 2009 – EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced its commitment to MoReq2 certification of EMC Documentum Records Manager.  For European organizations and multinational corporations with European operations, a MoReq2-compliant records management solution from EMC will help them address the most stringent requirements for information governance and compliance.  EMC plans to apply for MoReq2 certification next year.

MoReq2 is the second version of the Model Requirements for the management of electronic records.  Published in March 2008, it focuses mainly on the functional requirements for the management of electronic records by an electronic records management system (ERMS) intended for use throughout the European Union.

“As a leading provider of records management solutions and a member of the MoReq2 review panel, EMC provided valuable input to ensure that the specification addressed the needs of the widest community of users,” said Jeff Bettencourt, Vice President and General Manager of Information Governance Product Group, Content Management and Archiving Division at EMC.  “This announcement underscores EMC’s commitment to enable our European customers to align their organizations with regulatory compliance requirements, records management standards and best-practices, helping them apply good governance to the growing volume of information that they manage.”

EMC’s information governance solutions for records management allow organizations to control the entire lifecycle of corporate records—including creation, safeguard, access and destruction—according to system-enforced policies.  The solutions include EMC Documentum Retention Policy Services, Records Manager, EMC Documentum Physical Records Services and EMC Documentum Federated Records Services.  Its unique modular architecture enables customers to deploy as little or as much functionality as needed.

Retention Policy Services allows customers to deploy retention and disposition that is completely transparent to users.  Customers can deploy a formal records system with Records Manager.  Physical Records Services extends the solution to manage paper, microfiche and other types of physical records in addition to electronic content.  Federated Records Services extends retention management capabilities to additional repositories, including Documentum and other third-party systems, providing a single system of record for business content, regardless of location or system.

Records Manager is certified as compliant with several standards in the U.S. and Australia as well as supports international records management guidelines such as ISO 15489.  Leading analyst firms have recognized Records Manager as a leader in the records management market (see EMC press releases issued July 7, 2009 and Oct. 1, 2009).
