After acquisition, EMC starts integrating Syncplicity into mobile strategy

Summary:EMC merges Syncplicity with its existing platforms for a longer reach across all mobile devices with a customer's network.

EMC is connecting some more of the dots among its products for enterprise employees. Specifically, EMC is integrating its recent purchase of Syncplicity with its existing Documentum enterprise content management platform.

The global IT solutions provider acquired the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company in May precisely for Syncplicity's native cloud-based sync and share capabilities directed towards enterprise customers.

But it's Syncplicity's secure support for publishing sharing and publishing content with other users outside of the firewall that is particularly essential for today's announcement.

EMC will be integrating Syncplicity to automate content distribution from Documentum repositories as part of standard business processes.

This will be more evident (and useful) to end users because it should mean that this content can be synced across large groups and designated mobile devices inside and outside the firewall as part of said business processes.

The intended benefits should be better and easier collaboration among colleagues and teams both inside and outside of the company. Furthermore, they would have this relevant information from virtually anywhere, anytime.

Additionally on the mobile side, EMC has upgraded Syncplicity to include support for the iPhone 5. Support for Android devices is expected soon, but EMC has not provided an official date or timeline yet.
