Amidst the masses of information (content) providers here at Online Information lurk many interesting content vendors. As others on the blog have commented, the show has fractured into a number of intersecting spokes designed to form an econtent wheel that makes the information go round. In an unobtrusive booth, storage goliath EMC is working to merge its many acquisitions over the past several years (notably Legato & Documentum) into a cohesive company. As David Gingell, VP of Marketing for EMC (EMEA) put it: “EMC is not a storage company. EMC is an information management company.” If so, they are in the right place to get the word out. EMC is one of the 20 or so EContent 100 list companies exhibiting here and it was lovely to get to tell David the good news myself.
