EMC building a more complete ECM suite

Recently, EMC announced acquisitions of Acartus and Captiva in a bid to offer an end to end ECM offering. Both these products are on the opposite ends of the content life-cycle spectrum. Captiva is for managing content input (by scanning and digitization), whereas Acartus provides solution for content archival. So, now EMC has all the components required for managing content lifecycle – Captiva for content entry, Documentum for content management and finally Acartus for content archival. One component that it lacks though is a decent content delivery mechanism.

Captiva, however had strong relationships with other products too and it will be interesting to see if EMC will let Captiva continue and build those relationships?

The consolidation continues and another niche vendor is no more!
