The face of enterprise content management is taking many forms today. The need for knowledge workers to leverage an ECM’s capabilities while at the same time leverage Web 2.0 tools for better collaboration, has led to a number of newEnterprise 2.0 solutions from ECM vendors.
EMC’s Lance Shaw, Group Product Marketing Manager, Knowledge Worker Applications, says thatCenterStage, an enterprise collaboration tool, is not meant to be a direct competitor toSharePoint. But looking at what it is and what it does, one can easily draw the comparison and see why an organization would implement it instead of SharePoint.
Shaw took us on a tour of this new offering fromEMC.
A Face for Documentum
EMCCenterStage is a business-to-business collaboration solution built to support the mobile knowledge worker and office worker alike. It is a client to EMC’senterprise content management system, Documentum. So, if you don’t haveDocumentum, then you don’t need CenterStage.
If you do use Documentum as your Enterprise CMS, then CenterStage is a good way to take advantage of Documentum’s capabilities using Enterprise 2.0 tools like collaborative workspaces, blogs, wikis and more.
