As mentioned – I didn’t get a chance to go to Momentum in Berlin this year.
However I was able to get a pretty good idea of what was covered thanks to the great streaming video that EMC had, as well as the great tweets that be “tweeted”, and the excellent blog posts that were written.
I’ve been to a few Momentum’s now, and while they are a great opportunity to really “talk” with the EMC people, and their partners, I always had the feeling that the things I heard, I had, more or less, heard at the previous Momentum, or that what was big one year, suddenly falls to the wayside.
Now I realise that changes to strategy get made all the time, and that new technology takes more than one year to design, develop and integrate, and it’s great to see that EMC is: a) responsive to changes in the market environment, b) keeping its customers well informed of the progress that they are making, but to mention a few examples…
- Centerstage – in 2009 this was being hawked as the new Documentum interface. Now where is it?
- XPlore – really glad to see that EMC have been busy with their own search engine. And I have been following this with interest. However has there been anything new over the last couple of Momentums?
- SharePoint – also really interested in this but, again, are we hearing anything new with regards to the EMC offering for integration with SharePoint?
It wasn’t until I spoke with a colleague, who made a similar comment, that I started to really think about this. Then I saw this tweet from Jed Spink that I realised that others also had the same thought.
I appreciate that my view might not be a perfect one, and that there might be situations where I am wrong.
I want to hear what you think? Am I right? Or am I totally wrong?…
