EMC Documentum Mobile 1.1 Now Available – New Support for the iPhone and iPod Touch

If you’ve been following the latest news within the EMC Information Intelligence Group (IIG), you have come to realize that mobile is a big part of our strategy. One cannot ignore the fact that the use of mobile devices for consuming and acting on information is becoming the standard way. I personally have several apps on my iPhone, and I have not once felt the need to actually sit down in front of my laptop and login into the actual Web application. Everything I need to do is right there within the APP. Now that may not be the case for all use cases, but a lot of what we do within an application is very task oriented. We perform a task and logout.

Top 5 Most Popular Blog Postings in 2011

With 2011 coming to an end, I thought I’d go back and do a quick review of the top 5 most popular blog postings from 2011.

#1 EMC Documentum Mobile Brings Enterprise Content to the Apple iPad

It is not surprising this was the #1 read blog posting in 2011. I just made the switch from a Blackberry to an iPhone two weeks ago, and I can see why people love all the apps. There is an app for just about everything, and being able to access and act on your enterprise business content is no exception. My old Blackberry was great for email, calendaring, and browsing the Web, but the apps is where businesses are going to benefit.

In August 2011,  EMC released Documenutm Mobile for the Apple iPad extending the power of enterprise content management to the Apple iPad enabling users to act on information faster than ever. EMC Documentum Mobile is now available in the Apple App Store, and users of Documentum can take advantage of it today.

Recap of EMC Event: Getting More out of Your SharePoint Investment

I was in Long Beach last week at an EMC luncheon where I presented on how organizations can get more out of SharePoint. A good percentage of the people who attended stated that they are using SharePoint today in some way, which should not come as a surprise.

Consider these interesting data points:

  • 71%  of organizations are committed or will consider SharePoint for their business (source: IDC 2009)
  • 67% of those responding to an AIIM survey stated they needed to either customize or buy third-party products to allow SharePoint to meet their needs (source: AIIM Market Intelligence Report on SharePoint 2010)

The SharePoint customer journey can be looked at in three phases – initial deployment, broad adoption, and business solutions.   While standing up a SharePoint site (or a collection of sites) and allowing people to add content and collaborate sounds like a good plan, you need to have a well-defined plan that covers the users, processes, and the technologies needed to ensure success.

At the EMC luncheon I talked about four key ways you can get more from your SharePoint investment while setting yourself up for success. I’ve summarized those four key topics below.

Upcoming SharePoint Lunch Event: 4 Ways to Get More from Your Microsoft SharePoint Investment

Is your business using SharePoint today?  There is a strong possibility your organization is already using SharePoint or is planning to in the near future.

IT beware: SharePoint 2010 is a good way for collaborating and gets high marks for being easy to deploy. But IT and the business users need to be aware that there are some inherent limitations in SharePoint 2010 that need to be considered when looking at how you get your information into SharePoint, how your users are best served when accessing and using it, and finally how to assert governance around the information being stored in SharePoint. 

I’ll be presenting at an upcoming lunch event in Long Beach, CA on December 6th (details below) on the SharePoint topic, and you learn about four key ways to:

  • Speed the delivery of paper-based information and records into SharePoint
  • Provide direct access to the EMC Documentum repository from within the familiar SharePoint interface
  • Automate business processes which rely on the content and collaboration managed by SharePoint
  • Enable secure access to active and inactive SharePoint content – while supporting regulatory and corporate requirements
