EMC Documentum has unveiled what it says is an embeddable enterprise content management (ECM) platform specially tailored for the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) market. The company adds that as part of the new offering, OEMs will have access to a variety of EMC Velocity2 Technology and ISV Program resources to help them market and deliver ECM solutions to customers.
Documentum OEM Edition contains a preconfigured version of the EMC Documentum Content Server and has the same functionality and API as the version sold to enterprise customers, the company says. ECM further claims the platform is suited to the needs of the host application and optimized for typical usage profiles in a resource-restricted environment. It also comes with a silent installer for easier embedding into the host application without introducing any new dependencies.
Partners who purchase EMC Documentum OEM Edition can also leverage a variety of programs for building applications and solutions integrated with the Documentum platform through the EMC Velocity2 Technology and ISV Program. Benefits encompass technical support, access to training, application interoperability testing and certification. ECM says specific benefits include:
- EMC Content Management Developer Network--a technical resource for a community of more than 40,000 developers that provides technical know-how and keeps users abreast of content management news;
- EMC Application Developer Program--helps ISVs, VSPs and SIs target, design, develop and go to market with successful offerings based on the EMC Documentum platform; and
- Tech Support Partner Programs--a set of support programs to assist OEMs in building their applications on top of the Documentum platform and to enable them to provide first levels of support with an escalation process back to the EMC Documentum support group.
