EMC Gains Channel Partner Momentum With EMC SourceOne

HOPKINTON, Mass., April 30. EMC Corporation, the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced increasing momentum for its EMC SourceOne information governance solutions among its channel partners. Introduced in April 2009, EMC SourceOne's innovative, next-generation architecture was built from the ground up to make it easier for channel partners to sell and implement solutions for their customers. As a result, this has enabled partners to meet customer demand and accelerate their opportunities and profitability in the information governance market.

Demand for information governance solutions is high as organizations seek to manage risks, simplify e-discovery and cut storage costs. EMC's worldwide Velocity partner community plays a critical role in the go-to-market strategy for EMC SourceOne. The strength of the EMC SourceOne portfolio, the market opportunity for information governance solutions and EMC's robust Velocity Partner Program ensures that channel partners are well-prepared to serve customers.
