“The Life Science business model is continually changing thus requiring content management technologies and solutions to evolve accordingly such that they continue to deliver business value. There’s a digital mindset enterprises need to embrace especially as Enterprise Content Management (ECM) continues to evolve. Merck understands the commitment that EMC has in the Life Science space which provides a strong foundation and pathway to meet these current and future challenges.”
Melissa Webster, Program Vice President, Content and Digital Media Technologies, IDC
"Component- and cloud-based architectures offer enterprises significant benefits in time to market, economies of scale and business agility. At the same time, customers need a path to the future that lets them leverage and extend their existing investments. We are seeing growing interest in cloud – in its many variations – for ECM and for cloud-based content applications that automate critical enterprise business processes."
Rohit Ghai, President, EMC Enterprise Content Division
“To understand where we’re going, we have to understand where we came from. EMC has been a leader in the ECM market for the last 25 years, helping our customers transform business by connecting information to work. We understand content, and having a complete content strategy is more critical than ever. Digital enterprises are moving away from monolithic solutions. Unlocking the way people will experience content in the future will depend upon a revolution in how content is accessed, managed and delivered. Project Horizon will help these organizations create a digital workplace, a digital value-chain and operate with a digital mindset regardless of where they are on the journey to Digitalization.”
