LAS VEGAS (Momentum @ EMC World) - May 11, 2011 - EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced a comprehensive new program to help partners build, sell, deploy and support solutions created with Information Intelligence Group (IIG) products. The new EMC IIG Partner Program provides partners access to the entire IIG portfolio, including Enterprise Content Management solutions, Documentum® xCP and Information Governance SourceOne™ offerings, and offers a new "EMC Certified Solution" designation. The new program will be launched at the first IIG Partner Conference, part of Momentum at EMC World.
The IIG Partner Program is designed to improve the total customer experience, ensuring partners are trained, certified and fully equipped to deliver global customers the quality, value and consistency expected from EMC.
