Documentum 6 unveiled
EMC has revealed the Documentum 6 enterprise content management (ECM) platform, which, the company says, enables rapid and flexible development, configuration and deployment of next-generation enterprise content applications.
EMC says that key to the Documentum 6 platform is its new services-based API (application programming interface), as well as new development tools that together revolutionize Documentum-based application development and configuration. EMC also announces its $100,000 Developers' Challenge, which encourages development of new applications based on the Documentum 6 platform.
EMC highlights the following new capabilities of the Documentum 6 platform:
Documentum Enterprise Content Services--a new, Web services-based API that simplifies development and integration with ready-to-use enterprise content services for easy integration with other enterprise applications within a service-oriented architecture (SOA).
Documentum Composer--provides a standards-based platform for development and configuration tools that reduces the need for coding and facilitates composition of applications with reusable elements, making the design, customization, deployment and maintenance of content applications faster and easier.
Documentum Branch Office Caching Services--enables robust global scalability for enterprises with high-performance, remote application requirements by enabling all operations (read, create, edit, version, search) to occur locally to a user, regardless of location.
