emc.jpg Props to Translations.com's flagship software product, GlobalLink Content Director, for receiving the coveted "Designed for EMC Documentum" accreditation. This strived-for accreditation is a mark of quality in the enterprise applications industry that signifies that GlobalLink Content Director has successfully met a set of criteria for solid design and quality integration.

GlobalLink Content Director

GlobalLink Content Director (GCD) now integrates directly within the EMC Documentum environment, giving Documentum users globalization process automation in a familiar User Interface. UI Integration with Documentum gives users full use of GlobalLink Content Director's localization workflow capabilities without needing to run a separate application. Localization projects can be initiated and managed directly in the EMC Documentum platform through GCD's automated content extraction/re-integration functionality. This benefits customers by extending Documentum's functionality meant to drive reductions in labor-intensive tasks associated with multilingual content initiatives. In addition to UI integration within EMC Documentum, GlobalLink Content Director can also be supported with localization services from Translations.com, any third-party language services provider (LSP), an in-house translation team, or any combination thereof. “EMC’s position as the leader in enterprise content management is strengthened by the support of great partners such as Translations.com. Partners like Translations.com build solutions and applications on the Documentum platform because customers have demonstrated their trust in EMC Documentum to manage their most critical and strategic information," noted Randy Ziegler, Director of Developer Programs at EMC Corporation. "The accreditation program is another way EMC earns that trust while supporting innovative offerings like GlobalLink Content Director.” Translations.com has stated that it does not intend to enter the CMS market, preferring to partner with market leaders like EMC Documentum for translation-related technology.

Designed for EMC Documentum

The Designed for EMC Documentum program helps ISVs, VSPs, and SIs design, develop, and go-to-market with successful offerings based on the widely used EMC Documentum platform. Members receive specialized design consultation and guidance, as well as access to dedicated content management technical resources. Partners can submit their offerings to be considered for the “Designed for EMC Documentum” accreditation—which, if achieved, signifies to customers that the offering meets high standards for architectural compliance with Documentum practices and will provide a reliable integration with less uncertainty for joint customers. This is, therefore, a big deal for smaller companies interested in more exposure and distribution. The teaming up of Translations.com with EMC could put them in competition with translator provider Clay Tablet, who has a similar deal going with Oracle Universal Content Management. This team-up lets Oracle CMS clients connect to translation providers like SDL's TMS, across Language Server or Language Weaver's SMTS. EMC recently held their annual EMC World in Las Vegas, where it became clear that Documentum products will continue to change in order to better complement storage deals. Focusing more on high volume, low complexity throughput, EMC seems poised to compete with FileNet and possibly Oracle for high value deals as well.
