Most IT organizations today are embracing capabilities in the public cloud, and building their own private cloud.  This combination of public and private capabilities IS a hybrid cloud and it’s where leading IT organizations are going so they can fully redefine themselves, delivering today’s applications at the lowest possible cost and enabling new applications and data-driven insights to differentiate their business.

Unfortunately, building a hybrid cloud has not been easy for many organizations.  Even building an on-premises private cloud with virtualized infrastructure, automation and self-service can become a project that fails to deliver on the vision, despite investing millions of dollars and thousands of personnel hours.  If you were around for an ERP implementation in the late 90’s this probably sounds familiar.

Vice President, Cloud Solutions at EMC

Today, we’re redefining hybrid cloud. Why?

COO, Information Intelligence Group at EMC

The stakes are high when it comes to enterprise information. While enterprise content management (ECM) systems have been widely adopted, not all organizations are prepared to handle technological disruptions where information is front and center.

In January, EMC announced significant advancements to the EMC Documentum ECM portfolio, including the introduction of EMC InfoArchive, a unified enterprise archive platform – leading to Gartner recognizing EMC as a “visionary” in its recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement. Less than a year later, I’m excited to share that Gartner has, once again, positioned EMC as a “leader” in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management report. The new report evaluates the EMC Documentum ECM portfolio for next-generation ECM, enabling customers to increase productivity, improve collaboration and assure governance in the cloud. EMC’s strength in providing an extensive content management stack, industry solutions, as well as InfoArchive help our customers transform business as they embark on the digital journey.

This not-for-profit organization was founded earlier this year to accelerate the growth of the Industrial Internet and offer an environment for industry collaboration.
