HOPKINTON, Mass - April 2008

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced the expansion of its OEM Content Management, Capture and XML Data Management software product portfolio. These offerings allow developers to include sophisticated capture, rich content management capabilities and information rights management in their software products. EMC’s commitment to the developer community means independent software vendors can deliver more complete solutions to their customers, enabling the rapid delivery of new products to new markets, growing top and bottom lines.

With today’s announcement, EMC further positions itselfas a complete source of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions designed specifically for independent software providers wanting to rapidly and cost effectively embed first-in-class functionality in their applications. EMC’s broad range of content management products available to developers now include: enterprise-strength document management, business process management, records management, information rights management, XML data management, and a host of document capture solutions.

The most recent addition to the EMC OEM family is the EMC Documentum XML Store OEM Edition for XML data management — designed to manage technical information, publish complex documentation, and share data anywhere. XML Store OEM Edition is the fastest and most scalable XML database powered by open standards and is suited for data intensive industries such as aerospace, manufacturing, publishing, and the public sector.

“At, we offer hosted XML content management services that help our customers reduce the costs of creating, translating, and publishing technical publications and online help. We wanted to be first-to-market with a SaaS solution that leverages best-of-breed XML database technology,” said Dan Dube, Managing Director, "We selected EMC Documentum XML Store OEM Edition for its adherence to open standards, strong support for multilingual content, and high performance. EMC’s XML technologies for OEM offer us the most scalable performance of all XML content management systems we evaluated. Our customers depend on our hosted DocZone XML content management service. Leveraging EMC’s technology makes good business sense.”

EMC’s Information Rights Management software development kit (SDK) is targeted towards software developers, Web 2.0 applications, software as a service (SaaS) environments and product equipment companies offering developers a means to include information control and security to ensure that sensitive information remains secure as it is shared both internally and externally. These industry leading solutions are optimized for developers to easily plug into their applications and enables independent software vendors to keep up with the increasing demands of customers.

“Our Evidence Management solutions with EMC Information Rights Management provide the best protection developed for our customers to date, and furthers our ability to drive down corporate risk and costs in ways no other eDiscovery provider can,” said Tom Thimot, President and CEO of CaseCentral. “CaseCentral provides an on-demand Evidence Management platform to corporations and law firms. With EMC’s IRM technology embedded into our software, we are able to offer our customers the ability to control, secure, and track their evidence - something that differentiates us from our competitors.”

EMC’s Core Offerings for OEMs—Capture, Store, Secure, and Archive

EMC’s OEM offerings are anchored by the EMC Documentum Content Server OEM Edition, the world’s first embeddable ECM platform for independent software vendors. Using Content Server OEM Edition as an embedded repository and content platform significantly lowers the research and development expenses related to building an application that involves unstructured data assets ranging from documents, images, audio, and video to reports and messages. Content Server OEM Edition offers the same unified architecture, programming interfaces and functionality as the EMC Documentum Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform on which customers have come to rely.

Another core member of the OEM family is EMC Documentum ApplicationXtender document management software, which electronically stores, organizes, and manages virtually any kind of business content. Based on an easy-to-use Microsoft Windows/.NET-optimized system, ApplicationXtender integrates document imaging, viewing and annotation, report management, workflow, and document management services. ApplicationXtender is easy to implement, integrate, and manage, providing instant, role-based access to content from either a desktop interface or web browser, and its quick deployment makes it ideal for midsized organizations and enterprise departments.

To capture-enable their applications, developers can choose from the EMC Captiva family of paper scanning products. Captiva’s leading document capture and intelligent document recognition solutions automatically feed an organization’s information system faster, more cost-effectively and with greater accuracy than traditional data entry and manual filing alone—and software vendors can provide a more rapid return on investment and greater compliance control than ECM applications without a capture function. Both EMC Captiva PixTools ISIS SDKs and Dispatcher API provide developers with the ability to quickly build or integrate sophisticated document capture capabilities into their applications.

“CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business (, is a leading provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services. We’ve incorporated world-class capture technology from EMC Captiva software into our ProSystem fx Scan, resulting in a complete solution for firms looking to save time and money by automating the conversion of paper documents into business-critical data and digitized images,” said Stuart Gill, CCH Product Manager. ”Working with EMC has proven to be beneficial to our product offerings as well as our customer reach"

To complement the product offerings for the OEM developer market, partners can also leverage a wide range of best-in-class programs for building applications and solutions integrated with the Documentum platform through the EMC Velocity2 Technology and ISV Program. Benefits encompass technical support, access to training, application interoperability testing and certification, as well as marketing and business development support.
