SharePoint and Documentum getting chummy

Microsoft and EMC - the makers of Documentum - announced that they will be working to ensure their products compliment each other in the future. Good news if your organisation has both of these technologies.

EMC will bring to market new solutions that seamlessly integrate the EMC Documentum platform with multiple Microsoft solutions and platform technologies including Microsoft Office SharePoint® Server 2007, the 2007 Microsoft Office system, SQL Server™ 2005 and enterprise search solutions. Microsoft provides content management capabilities in SharePoint Server 2007 today.
