EMCWORLD 2011—LAS VEGAS - May 10, 2011 - EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced a technology collaboration with Box to develop integrated content management solutions, bringing the benefits of cloud-enabled sharing and collaboration to global enterprises. Customers will benefit from Box's intuitive user interface, easy external collaboration, and content access from any mobile device, paired with the enterprise-class security, compliance and process management synonymous with EMC® Documentum®. The two companies will preview their solutions as part of Momentum at EMC World in Las Vegas.
EMC Documentum customers can immediately connect their on-premise deployments to Box through Box's ECM Cloud Connect, making it easy to synchronize, archive and transfer content between the two systems. The companies are currently working to build even deeper integrations to offer customers a truly seamless content management and collaboration experience.
"EMC and Box are enabling our customers' journey to the cloud—taking the user experience for accessing, sharing and collaborating on enterprise content to a new level," said Rick Devenuti, president of the Information Intelligence Group, a Division of EMC. "We're pleased to launch this next phase of Enterprise Content Management, which squarely meets the demands of the new user in this Post PC era.
Secure Access, Anywhere, Any Device
The Post PC era gives birth to the "new user," who interacts with information from a variety of sources, across a multitude of devices, and considers Microsoft applications as part of the experience, not the driver. Integrating Box's cloud layer and user-friendly interface with EMC Documentum delivers the new mobile and external collaboration capabilities required for businesses to make better, faster decisions. These cloud-enabled joint solutions strike the right balance in giving users easy-to-use tools for accessing information regardless of device, with the control IT expects for capturing, managing, processing and preserving content.
"We're excited to work with EMC to accelerate cloud adoption in the world's largest enterprises by connecting their content management infrastructure to the cloud," said Aaron Levie, Co-Founder and CEO of Box. "These solutions are at the forefront of a major transition in enterprise IT, as vendors will increasingly need to work together to create powerful, open solutions that bring customers the benefits of cloud-enabled software without disrupting their existing systems and processes."
