Five Good Reasons to Attend Momentum at EMC World 2013

EMC World 2013 is just around the corner (May 6th – 9th). In fact it is a few weeks earlier this year than in past years, which I’m happyEMC World 2013 about. In past years EMC World has either conflicted with Mother’s Day (not good) and one of my son’s birthday (also not good).

Here are just a few good reasons you should attend.

#1 – IIG educational sessions across many tracks

As in past years, you will have an opportunity to attend both business and technical sessions around the products and solutions. You’ll hear from technical experts, business partners, and customers on the new products, customer use cases, future products, and more.

There is a lot to talk about this year given the massive product launch we did back in November 2012. If you are not up to speed on what we announced here are couple postings to read.

EMC Launches Massive Wave of Content Management Products and Solutions

EMC Captiva 7.0 Now Available!

EMC Documentum xCP 2.0 is Now Available!

#2 – Complimentary consulting sessions in the Genius LabAlbert_Einstein

What’s better than talking to really smart people who are more than capable of answering your questions and providing great advice and direction on current and future projects.

#3 – Networking events to meet EMC execs, product experts and each other

All customers have feedback (good and bad). This is your chance to get in front of executives, product managers, and others. They are always looking for your honest feedback.

EMC Certified#4 – Solutions showcase in the Momentum Zone featuring IIG and partner solutions

EMC has launched a few new solutions recently –  EMC Documentum Engineering Plant and Facilities Management (EPFM) and EMC Documentum Solution Suite for Life Sciences.  Partners also have solutions that have been EMC Certified that they will be showcasing at Momentum.

#5 –  Great entertainment, socializing, and more.EMC World 2012 Welcome Party

In addition to the great content that customers and partners are exposed too, EMC World offers a great time for socializing and enjoying the entertainment provided. The headlining entertainment seems to get better each year.

If you’ve attended EMC World in the past and would like to let others know why you plan to attend, please feel free to comment on this blog posting.

We hope to see you there!


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

We’ll discuss the emergence of cloud-based applications, their benefits, and how you can take advantage of this new type of technology. You will also get a first look at the new EMC Captiva OnDemand (see my recent posting: EMC OnDemand Brings Captiva, Documentum, and Document Sciences to the Cloud). We’ll discuss how the new EMC OnDemand deployment model puts the full Captiva intelligent enterprise capture capabilities in the cloud, dramatically reducing up front and ongoing costs.

I’m sure many are being asked by their IT management to investigate ways to move applications into the cloud – public, private, or a hybrid cloud approach. If so, this Webcast will give you insight into: 

  • Why cloud-based applications are growing so rapidly
  • How you can benefit from Captiva OnDemand – whether you’re an existing Captiva customer or not
