Day 1 – EMC Momentum 2013 update – #MMTM13

EMC World Momentum 2013 has begun!

We couldn’t make Momentum Las Vegas but we’ll be posting updates on what’s happening throughout the week.


This year the format has changed slightly with the keynotes coming later today so day 1 was a little quiet. Rohit Ghai kicked things off with a short video on what content you can expect at Momentum this year. 

EMC is offering some interesting incentives for customers: 1 weeks free assessment of how to migrate to Documentum D7.

In a simple but effective move, EMC has a new category for all partners. EMC’s head honcho of  channels - Gregg Ambulos – posted this. (I love the cool partner video on this link too).

The ‘big man of content’, EMC’s Lee Dallas gave us his first impressions on the partner summit – check out paragraph 6 which is perhaps worthy of a new blog post in the future.

Very interesting to hear that, IIG now has around 75 certified partner solutions.
