I know that I speak on behalf of our entire extended team that this one feels extra special. Attaining leadership in a highly competitive industry such as Enterprise Content Management (ECM) requires great vision and execution. Sustaining leadership requires adaptability to change. Most market pundits believe that the pace of change is accelerating. Entire industries are getting reconfigured and disrupted at an unprecedented rate. The ECM industry is certainly going through a shift, with organizations looking to harness their content to drive their digital future.
Each year, as part of EMC World, the Enterprise Content Division (ECD) hosts its annual Momentum user conference, where 1,000 customers and partners gather to share best practices, network, and hear what’s new and on the roadmap.
This year, we’ve taken the theme “BEYOND” to the extreme. From our #BeyondExcited pre-show Mo & Tim video series and extreme rock-climbing and mountain-elevated booth, to our virtual reality demo and 3D-like keynote, we’re going beyond anything we’ve done before.
But more importantly, we’re also going beyond tradition – breaking the norm for the enterprise content management (ECM) industry – and dramatically reinventing the way we support our customers and help them digitally transform.
Vince Lombardi, widely considered the greatest American football coach of all time, said, “Leaders are made; they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”
This rang true as I was looking back at the 2015 analyst firm reporting season for the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market, which has reached its culmination with the recent release of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management. Gartner has once again placed EMC in the Leader quadrant of its report.
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.
Life sciences organizations need assurance that they not only have a complete view of regulatory activity, and all communications and interactions associated, but they have it at their fingertips 24x7x365. So if pharmaceutical companies are still storing their electronic submission documents somewhere on a file server, or manually digging around for all the different communications and interactions, a cradle-to-grave solution is exactly what the doctor ordered.
