EMC buys doc mgt firm for all-in-one completeness

It's rich, it's sophisticated

EMC is buying a document management software firm for $85m.

Based in Carlsbad California, Document Sciences, claims a roster of 500 customers, 60 of which are Fortune 500 companies.

With Document Sciences under its belt, EMC thinks it will be the first company to deliver an all-in-one complete suite of "high-value transactional content management solutions". The pitch is: better performance for less money than solutions blended from many companies.

And since you are asking what the features of such a suite of high value transactional content management solutions would include, we shall turn to EMC for its rich sophisticated definition:

High-volume, content-rich task processing, sophisticated capture, business process management, records management and archiving, as well as automated document output management".
