May 22, 2012 – EMC’s content management applications got a new look, with a dash of cloud and a bump from an acquisition during the start of its annual user conference.

At EMC World, the vendor announced it had acquired Syncplicity Inc., a provider of cloud-based file management, sharing and backup solutions. EMC noted in a release on the deal that Syncplicity would operate in some capacity under its Information Intelligence Group, which develops EMC’s Documentum offering. Rick Devenuti, president of that group for EMC, said the acquisition would go toward strengthening and simplifying cloud content collaboration with Documentum and other solutions. EMC also made a handful of enhancements and additions for mobile, cloud and specific industries with the latest release of its content management application, Documentum D2 4.0. The updated release features more configuration rather than coding, a revamped user interface, the ability to bring in Web information like Google Maps or Twitter, and an information rights management feature for mobile clients. The solution is offered on premise or in an EMC-managed environment, which was central to last year’s user conference announcements.
