EMC Leaps in with enterprise content suite


EMC's Leap suite is a set of cloud-native content apps designed to deliver enterprise-grade content management capabilities with an intuitive experience for business users.

Leap includes applications developed by EMC and by other companies. They work with existing content repositories, particularly Documentum, and content is managed in place, avoiding the need to make additional copies.

During a media briefing, EMC enterprise content division president Rohit Ghai described the suite as "a giant leap for ECM."

The first five applications are:

Leap Courier (pictured above) - secure and structured document exchange, validation and tracking, even between organisations

Leap Snap - automatically captures, categorises and organises documents and related document information in real-time

Leap Concert - collaborative document creation

Leap Express - browse, access, search and approve content,regardless of its location

Leap Focus - document consumption on mobile devices, with automatic reformatting to suit the device.

The Leap Together program provides maintenance-paying Documentum customers with free access to Leap applications. Otherwise, Leap applications are available on pay-per-use subscription basis.

Leap Courier and Leap Snap will be generally available in June. Leap Concert, Leap Express, and Leap Focus will be generally availability in the second half of 2016.

"Our goal with the EMC Leap family is to humanise the experience of interacting with business content," said Ghai.

"Beautiful, intuitive, and purpose-built apps drive engagement, which has a ripple effect. Customer engagement drives loyalty; employee engagement improves productivity; and partner and supplier engagement fosters better collaboration across the value chain.

"This level of engagement enables superior customer service, greater agility and new business opportunities, and is a key marker of a successful digital business."

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
