is one of the most popular website platforms for Drupal, but today, it’s also expanding into hosting
The service aims to abstract all of the complexities of hosting away so that developers and designers can focus on what they do best and those who just want to use WordPress as a CMS can focus on content. At the same time, though, it also gives developers full access to their code and features like Git support, while designers can continue work on their templates just like before and then upload to the site.
Unlike other hosting companies, Pantheon made an early bet on a container-based architecture that allows it to quickly scale. The company argues that this allows it to scale servers up and down faster and with over 100,000 Drupal installs on its system, it also allows the company to run its infrastructure without having to spin…
Not falling behind is one lesson that EMC’s CMA (Content Management & Archiving) group apparently has taken to heart, as demonstrated by the recent announcement of nine (9) product releases, in conjunction with a new hashtag, #ECMevolved.
For several years now, industry analysts have perceived Documentum, along with other “traditional” ECM (Enterprise Content Management) platforms, as being absent from the technology industry’s radar, especially as newer trends (such as “Big Data” and “Cloud Computing/Storage”) have become omnipresent buzzwords in almost every C-suite worldwide.
These nine new product releases and updates are meant to signal that EMC is serious when it comes to taking steps, in order to enable traditional enterprise content management system products within the framework of a next-generation, third-platform approach. The third-platform concept will allow ECM users to work smarter in a world where Big Data, mobile, social and cloud computing are both new drivers (and sources) – while getting the correct information in the correct format to the right person, at the right time…regardless of where they are located.
InfoArchive is an application platform designed for long-term, detailed archiving of structured and unstructured data, to best assist organizational compliance with business, legal, and regulatory requirements.
Project Horizon is the first true mobile application integration built for Documentum, featuring multiple micro-applications known as “tiles” that allow mobile users to access the same functionality traditionally found only on desktop or browser-based ECM applications. These tile applications now give mobile users the ability to identify, locate, edit, and update shared content in real-time, using a mobile application interface, on both smartphone and tablet devices. Currently available application “tiles” provide mobile ECM functionality to include collaborative authoring & review (document management), controlled document collection (business process), and team collaboration (workflow). There are also plans to incorporate point-and-click snapshots, along with metadata, via a capture and classification tile (imaging).
Both of these new applications, along with other application updates to core products such as Documentum, Documentum Services for SAP, Syncplicity, and xCP, tie into what EMC content strategy calls “co-innovation”. To quote Enterprise Content Division CTO Jeroen Van Rotterdam, this approach “is the new way of doing agile”.
