Documentum, the leading provider of enterprise content management and a division of EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), today announced that Standard & Poor's (S&P), the world's foremost provider of independent investment research, ratings and indices, has selected Documentum 5, the latest version of the Documentum ECM platform.
S&P, a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, will use Documentum 5 to create, manage, deliver and archive its volumes of global equity research.
Documentum 5 enables native XML authoring, management and reuse, and allows non-technical, business users to create and publish XML content. This accelerates S&P's time-to-benefit in publishing its research and analysis. Using Documentum 5, S&P can use XML to deliver personalised, re-purposed content across numerous communication channels.
"S&P chose to standardise on Documentum 5 for a web-based global repository to enable worldwide content contribution; its comprehensive and robust workflows will help us achieve new levels of operational efficiency," said Brian Whitehead, chief technology officer for Standard & Poor's. "Documentum offers extensive XML capabilities that will allow our researchers to re-use content, and accommodate all of our authoring environments, unobtrusive to our content contributors."
"By standardising on the Documentum ECM platform, S&P will be able to accelerate publication of equity research, which can be a definite competitive advantage in the fast-paced financial services industry," said Dave DeWalt, president of the Documentum division of EMC. "Documentum's industry leading position is validated when market leaders such as S&P select and standardise on our platform."
