Exalead (news, site) announced that their CloudView Search Platform has received the "Designed for EMC (news, site) Documentum" accreditation.

Accreditation comes after participation in the Designed for EMC process, which helps ISVs, VSPs and SIs design, develop and market successful offerings based on the EMC Documentum platform.

Designed For EMC

The result of this accreditation is that CloudView can provide indexing and searching capabilities across Documentum databases. But how do you get to this point? To achieve the 'Designed for EMC' accreditation companies submitting projects are assessed on:

  • Offering Completeness
  • Design
  • Development
  • Deployment
  • Quality Assurance
  • Documentation
  • Services

As part of the process, they have access to early product roadmap information and specific product release information sharing. These ‘partner’ companies become aligned with EMC in a way that ensures that they are better able to provide quality products and solutions to customers.

Partners can also take advantage of EMC's application design expertise, participate in design workshops and interact with EMC’s architects.

The products are evaluated on their offering against a comprehensive set of criteria and must meet 50 criteria across:

  • Data and configuration management
  • Development and customization
  • Documentation
  • Installation upgrade and removal
  • Performance and scalability
  • Security
  • Supportability and maintainability

And this is the process that Exalead has just completed.
