Dell-EMC Letter

I received a letter from Dell-EMC yesterday that I found quite interesting for several reasons.  First, they sent it to my personal email address and not my business one.  Some how they think I am a customer?  Second, I have not received this — or any other communication — from them on my business email where I am registered with them as a partner.  Third, no where in this letter, nor the link to the Dell-EMC Technologies website, is Documentum mentioned*.  It could very well be that Documentum is considered to be part of EMC proper and not a subsidiary like VMware or Pivotal, I get that, but the skeptic in me wonders if this is an omen of the future.


* Documentum is still mentioned on the website, but you have to dig pretty deep to find it.



About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.

    Many industry analysts saw this merger primarily as a consolidation of the storage market, with virtualization thrown in. The primary driver for the merger was competition between Dell and EMC at various tiers of storage arrays.

    I consider that EMC’s prior moves to purchase enterprise content management products (Documentum line) and document imaging products (Captiva line) may have been geared towards driving more usage of EMC storage arrays.

    My guess for the near future would be spin-offs of the Documentum and Captiva product lines. I believe the company will likely keep VMware, at least for the near future.

    Best regards,
    Charles DeRosa
