EMC builds on Documentum xCP momentum
EMC competition to drive development on Documentum xCP platform
EMC has announced a competition to drive development on its Documentum xCP platform.
The Documentum XCP xCelerator challenge is offering cash prizes to customers, partners and employees to develop xCelerators - business applications, business process templates, code and documentation - that help to speed up the development of Documentum xCP-based solutions.
"xCelerators are key assets that increase the speed of development on Documentum xCP and enhance end-to-end agility," said Neville Letzerich, VP and GM for Documentum xCP Information Intelligence Group, part of EMC. "This contest is a great way for customers, partners and employees to showcase the impressive work they've produced on Documentum xCP and to contribute valuable additions to the platform that will benefit the entire Documentum xCP community."
EMC also highlighted the benefits of Documentum xCP, in terms of the speed with which customers are able to roll out Documentum-based solutions, at the EMC Momentum event, which opened today in Lisbon.
At a panel discussion at the event, EMC detailed a number of customer case studies where organisations had used Documentum xCP to reduce cycle time, improve compliance and promote business agility.
The UN's International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the global agency for ICT issues, is one of the customer's highlighted, with a Documentum xCP records and information management (RIM) project that allows the organisation to track all incoming and outgoing correspondence, with a reliable audit trail and better control of processes. The agency is also able to search all documents by category, metadata and full content, thanks to OCR scanning of all documents, and is now developing a contract management solution.
Michael Manias, Documentum specialist at ITU said: "Since Documentum xCP is role-oriented, its client interface totally fits our users' needs. It provides really good features for displaying content and metadata. At the same time it can be adapted to the needs of the end-user without having to develop any lines of code."
