EMC® Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, and FatWire® Software, the leading provider of Web Experience Management (WEM) solutions, today announced that they will jointly offer solutions for Web experience and brand management to help customers create engaging online experiences and ensure brand consistency.

The strategic partnership between EMC and FatWire includes reciprocal reseller agreements, joint innovation, sales, marketing and services activities as well as a minority equity investment by EMC in FatWire. Under the reseller agreements, EMC will resell FatWire's comprehensive WEM product set as its WEM solution and FatWire will resell EMC's digital asset management software including EMC Documentum® Media WorkSpace and EMC Documentum Content Transformation Services as its digital asset management offering. The two companies have also committed to joint product development to extend the existing Documentum-FatWire integrations and innovate in solutions for marketing organizations.

"IDC believes that this new partnership will deliver great value to customers of both EMC and FatWire by giving them the tools they need to succeed with their online marketing efforts. With this move, EMC is clearly signaling its intent to compete strongly in the WEM arena."
