The acquisition complements and extends EMC's vision in transactional content management (TCM) -- one of the fastest-growing segments of enterprise content management (ECM). EMC's unique combination of document capture, business process management -- and now, document output management -- further extends EMC's leadership in this important segment. In addition, this acquisition also extends EMC's broader ECM offerings, adding dynamic communications services to enhance the company's interactive content management, knowledge worker and archiving & compliance solutions.
Mark Lewis, President, Content Management and Archiving Division at EMC commented, "When we announced our intent to acquire Document Sciences in December, we stressed the deal would further extend our leadership position in both transactional content management and the larger category of enterprise content management. With the acquisition now complete, we are delivering on this promise, enabling EMC customers to fully benefit from the market's-leading suite of document output management and customer communications solutions."
