BOSTON, EMC World - May 12, 2010 -
EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced the new EMC® SourceOne™ for Microsoft SharePoint which enables organizations to adopt a proactive information governance strategy for content spread across multiple SharePoint sites and farms. SourceOne for SharePoint delivers operational control, compliance and e-discovery capabilities without impacting SharePoint end-users. As a result, IT departments can reduce costs, improve system scalability and performance and ensure compliance.
SourceOne for SharePoint is the newest addition to EMC SourceOne, a family of modular, integrated products for archiving, compliance and e-discovery that makes information governance actionable. Support for SharePoint 2010 in addition to earlier versions will be immediately available when SourceOne for SharePoint is released at the end of June 2010.
With SourceOne for SharePoint, EMC is delivering a building block approach to help customers address their operational challenges. This includes reducing the costs of managing content in both active and inactive SharePoint sites. As their needs mature, customers can be confident that the right content is managed, retained and disposed off according to internal policies and external regulations.
The EMC SourceOne portfolio of information governance solutions also helps customers simplify e-discovery across multiple content types including those contained in SharePoint. EMC SourceOne eDiscovery - Kazeon allows early case assessment and automates the identification, collection, preservation, processing, analysis and review of content located in a variety of managed and unmanaged sites including SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino, desktops, laptops, common Internet file systems (CIFS) and network file systems (NFS), networked attached storage and other content management repositories.
According to an InfoTrends report, "Gathering MOSS? Revealing SharePoint Opportunities and Costs," August 2009:
Only EMC provides the breadth of solutions—from hardware to software and services—to help customers address their information governance challenges related to SharePoint. These solutions include:
“EMC is committed to enabling our customers to execute on their information governance strategies. With the new SourceOne for SharePoint, we are providing them with a building block approach to address operational and compliance challenges related to SharePoint content without any impact to the end-user experience and value they already enjoy.”
– Jeff Bettencourt, Vice President and General Manager of Information Governance, Information Intelligence Group,* a division of EMC
"The incredibly viral nature of SharePoint has brought increased productivity and collaboration to everyone in an organization. But because it is administered by the end-user, IT tends to lose control creating an information governance risk. The EMC SourceOne for SharePoint puts the control back to IT by allowing them to set up policies for retention and disposition thereby freeing up needed storage space and system capacity."
– Laura Dubois, Program Director at IDC
"We have many clients who have adopted and deployed SharePoint. Most of them are experiencing rapid growth in content and are struggling to maintain required performance levels in their SharePoint sites. The value that EMC SourceOne for SharePoint brings is in helping our customers drive down their storage costs while enhancing the performance of SharePoint by off-loading inactive content from the SQL Servers that support it. In addition, our customers can ensure that any content that gets moved out of SharePoint and into a long term archive is being managed according to specific retention policies."
– Mike Alsup, Senior Vice President, Gimmal Group
"For the past year, ICI has had tremendous success, through their information governance assessments, in driving EMC SourceOne deals to help our customers implement the foundation of a sound IT governance strategy within their enterprise. The majority of our customers are either using SharePoint or are beginning to implement it. With the new EMC SourceOne for SharePoint, we are able to continue our IT governance strategy by introducing information governance for SharePoint in our customer conversations. We're extremely excited about this because it opens up additional opportunities for us to increase our business and to help guide our customers' strategy for IT governance."
– Jamie Shepard, Executive Vice President of Technology Solutions, International Computerware Inc., an EMC Velocity partner
