EMC World


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.

Enjoy.

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.

I also wrote two articles for CMS Wire that are more factual, but they summarize the topics nicely.

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.

EMC World 2011: Live Blogs

Here are all of my live notes in the order that they were taken. If I learned something in one session, I didn’t necessarily record it in a subsequent session, but I did try and link backwards. They all follow the rules laid out in my EMC World 2011: Rules of the Road post.

EMCWorld 2011: External Resources

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.

EMC World 2010: Articles

Here is where all of my articles regarding EMC World 2010 are located. They were the start for a few themes over the following months.

I also wrote an article for CMS Wire, #emcworld: The New Face of Documentum.  It is a write-up of the Information Intelligence Group’s composition and focus as pulled from the Mark Lewis Keynote.

Here are a couple of links to some guest notes collected by Chris Campbell and graciously given to me for publication.

EMC World 2009: Articles

Here is where all of my articles regarding EMC World 2009 are located. They were the start for a few themes over the following months.

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

EMCWorld 2009: External Resources

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.

There is a YouTube Channel setup for EMC World 2009 and the EMC World Online Newsroom at EMC’s website.

EMC World 2008: Articles

Here is where all of my articles regarding EMC World 2008 are located. They were the start for a few themes over the following months.

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.

EMC World 2008: External Resources

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.

Oh, did I mention the YouTube collection of videos? You can either follow that link or go to EMC’s EMC World Online Newsroom

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