Just won one of these at the Momentum User Group booth. While I am grateful for this grand prize, it’s going to be all the harder to convince the Boss that I really “need” that new Apple TV when it finally hits the market.
On a more serious note; I attended a great session on xCP this morning; check out this AM’s Momentum 2014 twitter feed for more information on some of the great features in the IIG portfolio.
On your way to EMCworld and Momentum 2014?
Recommend you check the attached article out, written by Virginia Backalitis at CMSwire. Great article, chock-full of her predictions for what we could see happen next week at the Sands Convention Center. My thoughts and comments down below, after the break. Will it all go down this way?

Back in the late 90’s, Steve Jobs redefined Apple via “Think Different”:
In the documentary “One Last Thing” (2011) Jobs stated that people needed to “shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it…”

Rather, we need to treat different perceptions as a positive value that, if anything, offers additional rewards and opportunities for all.
Found this interesting “map” that EMC shared on LinkedIn earlier today. Sometimes, the story is more about what’s not on the map… and in this case, it’s ECM (and Documentum) that’s MIA from yet another EMC publication.*
*In all fairness, the map does contain a bullet point labelled “Intelligence” in the “Security” panel. Conceivably, this could refer to IIG. However, there are no references to IIG or Documentum elsewhere on the graphic, credits, or supporting page, nor on the two other EMC “storymap” pages covering IT Transformation or Big Data.
