Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Hopkinton, Mass., Thursday, September 27, 2007 - 

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management, 2007”† report. EMC addresses this market with its Documentum and Captiva family of products.

Gartner describes market leaders as having “the highest combined scores for their ability to execute and completeness of vision. They’re currently doing well and are prepared for the future with a clearly articulated vision. In the context of content management, they have strong channel partners, a presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technology or vertical markets. Leaders can deliver a comprehensive ECM suite by having all six core components and proven enterprise scalability.”†

EMC has always been on the cutting edge of enterprise content management, and we are aggressively working to take our leadership to the next level,” said Mark Lewis, President, Content Management and Archiving Division at EMC. “Evidenced by our newly announced Documentum 6 platform – which truly changes the way organizations build, configure and deploy content applications – and our recent acquisition of the leader in XML database and content management solutions, X-Hive Corporation, and it is clear why we believe EMC has both the vision and strategy in place to cement our leadership in content management.”
