EMC Outlines Software Roadmap

   At EMC Technology Summit 2004, EMC outlined its plans to be the leader in the information life-cycle management market. According to EMC, nearly 2500 customers and partners attended the company's fourth annual technology conference in Orlando, Florida. At the conference, EMC laid out a roadmap for future products that emphasizes information life-cycle management. "We want to help you get the most value from your information, and we want to do it with the lowest total cost," said Mark Lewis, executive vice president of open software at EMC. Software obtained from EMC's acquisition of Documentum, LEGATO Software, and VMware will play a large role in the company's information life-cycle management plans.
   On EMC's roadmap is an update next quarter for the EMC ControlCenter family of storage and device resource management software. ControlCenter 5.2 will include integrated service management features. Future versions will include change, workflow, and Web-services management. Later this year, EMC will update its VisualSAN software to include support for the Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S) standard. Documentum 5.3 will launch this year with improved security and collaboration, as well as email archival support based on LEGATO Software technology. And among the key features that will be added to Documentum 5.4, which will ship by the second half of next year, is enhanced storage-aware content repository capabilities.
