Customer Quotes:

Michael Plon, Head ICT, Oil Search Limited

“As a fast growing Oil Company with geographically distributed presence, a robust document management system is critical to a lot of our engineering collaboration and compliance related business needs. EMC OnDemand allows us to focus on delivering value to the business while leaving the management of the application stack to EMC. It also helps us lower our total cost of ownership. Our experience with the service so far has validated our rationale for selecting EMC OnDemand. “

Petra Tesch, CIO, Sobi

“When we decided to move from Documentum Compliance Manager to the new Documentum Life Sciences Suite, we chose to work with the IIG Consulting team because we believe they have the expertise and tools to do fast and reliable content migrations. We just started the project and so far the data analysis and requirements gathering have gone very smoothly. We are delighted to be participating in a live migration event at EMC World.”
