Where have I been?

For one thing, I’ve been busy shipping software.

One of my responsibilities at EMC | Documentum is the platform architecture that supports the recently released EMC Archive Services for Email 5.3 product (aka EASE, AS4E, E5). This product was a challenging but rewarding effort that spanned EMC Software Group (ESG) divisions (i.e. Content Management Software Group (CMSG) and Information Management Software Group (IMSG)). As CMSG Platform Email Architect, I got to work closely not only with the talented engineers in our platform but also with the talented engineers from the EmailXtender team in Nashua, NH, and the Documentum Client for Outlook (DCO) team now in Cambridge, MA.

Gartner has a good overview of how EASE fits into EMC’s broader, integrated content archiving strategy. Internet News also has an overview describing the business needs EASE is designed to address.

Of course, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy; so, I’ve taken some vacation and continue to read at a fairly good pace a number of books, which I hope to blog about soon.

Until then, take care…

…P.S. Today is the final day to sign-up for consideration in the EASE 5.3 Early Deployment Program (EDP).
