EMC introduces Project Horizon, multi-tenant platform to redefine content management for the digital enterprise

At EMC World 2015, EMCs Enterprise Content Division has announced “Project Horizon” – a next-generation content platform and apps marketplace – designed to help CIOs and enterprises drive their digital agenda, strengthen their competitive advantage, and harness the untapped value of business content.

The Project Horizon marketplace will be curated by EMC, including both EMC-built and partner-built apps and solutions. In addition, EMC announced its latest offerings of Documentum Capital Projects Express and Documentum Life Sciences Solutions Suite will also be available on Project Horizon.

Unique approach

Project Horizon, built upon Pivotal CF, an enterprise PaaS powered by Cloud Foundry, enables all digital content flows for the digital enterprise. It brings a unique approach with a mobile-first, cloud-first mindset delivering a next-generation, multi-tenant content platform, according to EMC. Customers can now embrace the freedom to innovate and consume based on content-specific use cases – all while delivering new levels of agility, user experience and productivity by harnessing data and analytics to automate mundane tasks, and to provide predictive insights, the storage firm said.

Additionally, EMC has announced Documentum Life Sciences Solutions Suite 4.0, and Documentum Capital Projects Express will be hosted on Project Horizon. The company also rebealed a partnership with NNIT, an international IT service provider for regulated industries, to host the Documentum Life Sciences Solutions Suite in its GxP cloud offering. NNIT will act as a consulting and Cloud services partner for EMC serving the Life Sciences industry in EMEA.

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, said: “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.”
