This is the event I have been waiting for all day. Mark Lewis is going to talk and hopefully share the story behind the new name for the Content Management and Archiving Group, the Information Intelligence Group.
Remember, just notes now, later I’ll analyze after I have follow-up discussions.
- Mentioned the reason Documentum was founded was in order to help cure cancer.
- Reference count: II
- Purpose of IIG: Maximum leverage from your Information to give a distinct business advantage.
- Information at the “heart” of what people do.
- Lots of it (35ZB)
- mostly Unstructured (95%)
- Mostly unmanaged (85%), but about 85% of it should be unmanaged.
- More regulations around managing this Information
- By 2020, 33% of it will either live or pass-through the “cloud”
- Information with People and the Right Process: Information Intelligence Group
- Content Management and Archiving still at foundation, but doesn’t define the Group
- Five Product Families
- Name is a symbol of change to-date, not just future
- 1: Intelligent Information Governance (SourceOne umbrella)
- Compliance/Records Management
- Search and eDiscovery
- Announcing SourceOne for MS SharePoint, works for 2010 and coming later in Q2
- 2: Intelligent Case Management (xCP): New home for the Documentum platform
- 3: Intelligent Information Access
- Access Your Way: Desktop, Offline, Explorer, Outlook, SharePoint, CenterStage
- MyDocumentum and CenterStage
- 4: Intelligent Enterprise Capture (Captiva)
- 5: Intelligent Customer Communications (Document Sciences)
- Web Experience Management (FatWire) fits here as well
- Partnership with SAP. (details to be announced next week at SAP Conference, SAPPHIRE)
- Solutions this quarter
- Strategic Alliance & Partnership with Informatica announcement coming later this week.
- Address the 5% of structured information
- Long-term vision is to move things to the cloud.
- Private Cloud: Search is getting “fixed” for VMs by Q3.
- Going to build xCP and other things in public cloud for future use, will make config/customizations move readily from data center to private cloud to public cloud.
Going to the Architecture session next, though not sure I can focus. Lots to digest and think about.
