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.
