The Documentum 6 platform is a key piece of EMC's Documentum suite, a broad spectrum of ECM products that include software covering transactional content management, archiving, knowledge worker, compliance, interactive content management, and platform infrastructure.
Core 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.
Accompanying the launch, EMC today announced that it will offer up to $100,000 in cash prizes for winning participants of the EMC Documentum 6 platform Developers' Challenge.
"With the release of the Documentum 6 platform, EMC continues to lead the industry into the next generation of enterprise content management, as it moves from a separate application platform to an integral part of an organization's information infrastructure," said Balaji Yelamanchili, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Content Management and Archiving at EMC. "By adopting a vendor-neutral, services-based approach to content management, EMC is truly changing the way organizations build, configure and deploy today's content applications."
