GitHub Initiative Spurs Innovation

Jeroen van Rotterdam

CTO, ECD at EMC Corporation

Albert Einstein is noted as saying, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

It’s the same way that we think about developers: they have the imagination to always look for ways to help turn groundbreaking ideas into operational realities. And as innovators ourselves, we’re right there with them.

That’s why today, EMC’s Enterprise Content Division (ECD) is proud to announce enhancements to its developer program by making open source code accessible to users on GitHub. The initiative provides free sample code across a variety of ECD products to help our partners and customers develop new and exciting solutions based on industry-leading content management technology. ECD is building on a growing EMC presence on GitHub, which includes numerous open source contributions such as CoprHD, REX-Ray and RackHD being driven through EMC {code}.”

The feedback from our partners has already been positive. Jeroen Jansen, CEO from Informed Consulting shared this comment with me, The GitHub initiative opens up new possibilities for us. Not only does this program supply valuable code to kick start our projects, but it also provides a collaborative environment for innovation from where we can share and grow our expertise and a direct technical channel of communication with the product experts at ECD.”

GitHub

GitHub.com provides a home where developers can store software projects and network with likeminded people, fostering growth and collaboration. As the largest online storage space of collaborative works in the world, GitHub.com allows its community of more than 12 million developers to discover, use, and contribute to over 31 million projects using a powerful collaborative development workflow. With its intuitive user interface, GitHub gives ECD the opportunity to co-promote partner software and share useful code.

Sample code for the EMC Documentum platform is currently available on the GitHub site, with additional ECD code samples coming in the future. Access to the GitHub.com site is open to the public. Users can simply identify projects that are relevant to their business and contribute. Developers can also collaborate with an established EMC community of highly technical contributors across engineering and product teams.

The availability of ECD sample code, EMC’s investment in co-innovation programs, and our Developer Track at Momentum at EMC World, are just a few examples of how we support the developer community. We expect that this initiative will increase interactions and provide additional tools to our users to optimize visibility and inspire new forms of innovation.

We’re excited to see how partners, customers, and startups will leverage the power of GitHub to reimagine the future as organizations undergo digital transformation.

EMC & Lightstorm Entertainment Redefine the Film Industry for a Digital Future

Jon Landau

Producer, COO and Partner at Lightstorm Entertainment

Lightstorm Entertainment strives to push the boundaries of the film industry; with every movie we’ve done, from Titanic to Terminator 2: Judgment Day to Avatar. It’s interesting creatively for us to do things that stray from the norm, and that culture is reflected in the way we refer to our business.

To me, there’s no such thing as a “film industry” anymore. Nobody works on film anymore; we certainly don’t. We are, unquestionably, 100 percent digital. Movies like Avatar – which grossed more than $2.7 billion worldwide – simply would not exist without digital technology.

At New EMC-Pivotal Dojo, App Developers Learn by Doing

Brian Roche

Senior Director of Engineering, Cloud Platform Team at EMC

Latest posts by Brian Roche (see all)

There is a secular shift at play within the IT industry. Traditional markets are eroding rapidly. As organizations seek to innovate using new digital business mediums, many are moving their infrastructures to the cloud. A major challenge they find is that building cloud apps not only means a whole new set of tools, but also a new mindset. To truly embrace any new way of doing things requires a commitment to learn by doing, which is why we are proud to announce the official opening of the new EMC-Pivotal Dojo in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The Dojo is “the place of the way,” the new way that we develop software in today’s world. It’s where we contribute to open source Cloud Foundry. It’s where we work with customers to build software.  It’s where we practice lean software development and continuously innovate to solve customer needs.
