Want to find a post from EMC World? Look no further. Aggregated here are all of the posts that I have written about ANY EMC World conference. The posts are sorted by conference, post type, and then listed in chronological order. It is my plan to update this page with each year’s collection.
EMC World 2011: Articles
Here is where all of my articles regarding EMC World 2011 are located. They will most likely just be the start for a few themes over the next few months, but they start here. Listed in descending order.
- Unforgiven, Reflecting on Momentum 2011, Vegas: A recap of the conference itself with the good and bad from both sides of the aisle. In general, Momentum is now ready for the business users to return.
- Documentum has a Vision Again, How About Execution?: An overview of the long missing Vision and Strategy from IIG for Content Management. The question is, can they deliver?
- Collaboration, Just a Documentum Side Effect: CenterStage is not the center of EMC’s collaboration strategy. In fact, you have to look outside EMC for the answers, and EMC seems okay with that.
- EMC Goes Mobile, Creating a Redundant Déjà Vu Experience: EMC has a plan to hit the mobile market, again. Of course, they aren’t the only one.
I also wrote two articles for CMS Wire that are more factual, but they summarize the topics nicely.
- EMC World Brings New Direction for Documentum: This is a recap from the Roadmap and Rick Devenuti’s keynote on day one. It wraps the vision and strategy up a little more cleaner than the raw notes.
- EMC Extends Choices with Web Content Management: Outlining EMC’s approach to Web Content Management in the wake of their second WCM partnership (Fatwire and then SDL) in the last two years.
Lastly, I did a Moment at Momentum 2011 video while I was at the conference. It was recorded towards the end of day one, but I think it has value.

Here are some links to some Momentum write-ups. They are grouped by author. Those with multiple posts will be listed first, but I won’t re-order after adding additional posts.
- Robin East: Robin, the author of the Inside Documentum, was in attendance and wrote a few good posts. His first post talks about his goals for EMC World. He then shares notes Chris Preston’s Transformation of ECM session and the session Introducing Captiva 6.5. Then, as he was sitting next to me and I was relaxing, he captured notes from Paul Maritz’s VMWare keynote.
- TSG Group was in attendance and managed to almost keep pace with me from a post perspective. First there is the Day One Morning Recap covering Tucci’s keynote and the Web Services session. They then did a nice write-up of Sandy Shackelford’s session about Documentum at Delta Airlines Globally. They then have more Day 1 notes from the Architecture session and Rick’s keynote, as well as some closing thoughts. Next comes posts on Jeetu’s keynote (with interesting comments) and the UI/Strategy and Roadmap. They then shared some notes on the overall Roadmap and then wrote a fairly detailed Recap of the entire conference.
- Altran had several posts consolidating what they saw on days one, two, and three. They then wrote a solid recap of the entire Momentum conference.
- The folks over at Brilliant Leap, Virginia Backaitis I suspect, were in attendance and did a quick write-up on the Documentum strategy presented at EMC World.

- EMC World 2009, The Case of the Incredibly Shrinking Momentum: A look at the diminishing focus on the end-user at the Documentum user conference. Aren’t we supposed to be solving their problems? Maybe we should talk to them.
Brice Dunwoodie asked me to write one summary article for CMS Wire, and I gladly obliged with Field Notes: EMC World in Summary. It is a mashup of my overall thoughts that I’ll be scattered in multiple posts listed above. If you’d rather read one, more concise article, then this is the place to go. They usually have other useful material as well around the entire ECM industry

Links will mostly not start appearing here until after the conference. The people that posted information last year are likely to be the ones posted more content this year.
- Alexandra Larsson: Talked to Alexandra a lot this conference. She attended some of the sessions that I did, but she has different perspectives as her usage of Documentum is different than mine and innovative. She has some good entries and I highly recommend her post on the new Enterprise Search Server (ESS).
- Len DeVanna: He is the director of Web Strategy for EMC and organized the ZDNet Blogger’s Lounge at EMC World this year. His blog, Confessions of an eBiz Junkie has several posts on the conference, including an interview of yours truly.
- Michael Trafton: The Founder and CEO of the Blue Fish Group has several good posts about the conference. He was very busy as I always saw him running around and his posts were analytical in nature, which requires a good bit more time.
- Social Media at EMC World: A good article on the role of social media tools at EMC World.
- Apoorv Durga: He wrote some good notes on his trip to EMC World. It is a nice overview of the entire conference.

One additional post of note is the one-year anniversary post that I wrote in the middle of this list. It is heavily influenced by my trip to EMC World 2008 as I was on the plane home when I wrote most of it. It sets an ambitious goal for next year’s EMC World.

This is initially extracted from my Hot Topics from EMC World 2008: CMA Edition post and placed here for your convenience. Keep an eye out as it will grow and evolve.
Hopefully next year this list will be longer. These are in no particular order.
- Alexandra Larsson: Been reading her blog for a while now and I had the pleasure to meet her while in Vegas. I hadn’t added her to my blogroll only because her Documentum posts were few in number. Well, no longer. Alexandra took notes on several sessions that I did not attend, at typing speeds that I cannot match. Her Reflections post was very good and she shared a few additional insights into the conference that are dead-on. One of her comments made me think about something someone else had shared with me. Overview sessions on Monday with more detailed sessions as the week goes on.
- Big Men on Content: Both Lee and Marko were there and have shared their initial thoughts on the conference. I got to meet both of them and I was impressed by both of them. They each want a larger community for the CMA. EMC seems like they are trying to begin building a non-developer version. They are calling it Momentum and I have subscribed to see what will happen. In the meantime, I expect more posts from the Big Men in the next few weeks.
- Andrew Chapman: I spent some time with Andrew talking about SharePoint and what we need to make things work. His most recent post bails on the issue, saying we don’t know what we want. All kidding aside, many people do only know that they want Documentum and SharePoint to work together. In one session, Andrew and Erin Samuels, the Product Manager for SharePoint, worked hard to get myself and several other users to more clearly define our use cases so that they can get what is needed to the field. I don’t envy them their task.
- The Storage Anarchist: I know what your thinking…WHOA!!! A storage blogger. This is THE storage blogger of the EMC world. He has some nice picture of a trick pool shot from the exhibit hall. More importantly, if you care about anything besides content, he has a nice summary post that links to a lot of other coverage.
- Craig Randall: Craig was there and in addition to working with me to understand in more detail the issues we are facing around Identity Management in our SOA world, he is a pretty great guy. He directed me to some critical people with whom to share my use cases and as the show went I continued to chat with them about I am seeing on a growing basis. Craig has several good posts about some of the DFS sessions, with links to resources, on his site.
- CMS Watch: Alan Pelz-Sharpe attended ECM World and wrote an article on his observations. He offers this outsiders view of the conference. We seemed to miss each other while at the conference so I didn’t get a chance to bounce ideas directly. I think his observations regarding the CMA keynote is dead-on.

Just in case you want to compare, here are the articles from 2007.
