Cisco Quad and EMC Documentum Team Up to Make Content Social

This morning Cisco and EMC are announcing that they are teaming up to offer a Social Collaboration Platform for the Enterprise.

By combining Cisco Quad, our social software platform, with EMC’s Documentum Enterprise Content Management Platform (ECM), we’re enabling new ways to connect people, communities, and information on a policy-driven architecture that ensures compliance and security across the enterprise. With this announcement, both companies will deliver more comprehensive and expansive integration capabilities into the core of their products.

Today’s news will result in an improved experience for the end user (consistent, integrated and customizable), for IT (through their ability to deliver rich, social collaboration while, at the same time, protecting their organizations from associated risk) and for the business (driving productivity, growth and innovation through faster and more effective decision-making

The first release from this partnership will be available in the third quarter of 2011, and will enable existing ECM suite customers to collaborate on their content using social collaboration capabilities in Quad.
