EMC to acquire Document Sciences Corp

I have said before that ECM vendors should provide Document Composition features as this space is very closely related to content management.

The folks at EMC seem to agree. EMC ended the year with the news of acquiring Document Sciences. Doc Sciences’ xPression is a product that targets the Document Composition or Document Output Management (DPM) space.

For EMC, this provides a way to differentiate its content management offerings by adding document composition features to its suite. I don’t think any of the other big ECM vendors have this as yet and they will have to acquire/build these features to catch up. In return, Document Sciences gets a stronger company with a bigger sales force that will hopefully propel it to a leadership veposition in this space.

As with any other acquisition, a lot depends on how and when EMC integrates Documentum with xPression. However, I hope they will provide a better integration at least as an immediate benefit.

  1. Hey!
    Our company uses ECM as a pillar of our product solution. We talk to customers every day about the importance of managing their information, knowing where it is, how secure it is, who has access, etc. It’s amazing how many people don’t know what they have or where it’s located.ECM is integral in a company’s success, growth AND security.I liked your ideas on ECM.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
