NEW ORLEANS, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- MICROSOFT TECHED NORTH AMERICA 2010 -- EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced new services to help customers improve business intelligence and increase the value of their EMC information infrastructure within Microsoft™ SharePoint 2010™, Microsoft SQL Server® 2008, and Microsoft Windows® 7 environments. Organizations benefit from these services through improved business communication and insight, effective governance models and an optimized information infrastructure that both helps customers reduce operational costs and derive unprecedented value from information assets.

A new portfolio of EMC Consulting services designed for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 helps business and IT stakeholders build new architectures, assess business impact and create an effective governance model for migration. These five new services offerings enable enterprises to:

  • Assess and plan for Business Impact through defined goals and objectives in order to reach consensus among stakeholders, validate solution viability and facilitate successful adoption

  • Deploy cutting-edge Social Networking Services based upon defined goals and objectives, business impact and governance, architecture design, pilot programs and adoption roadmaps
  • Migration Planning for legacy applications such as IBM® Lotus Notes® through business impact assessment, planning, and architectural design
  • Deploy an Enterprise Search Application Architecture based upon business requirements, build a prototype for a pilot or real-world implementation, and leverage best practices for deploying Microsoft search technologies

The recently announced EMC® SourceOne™ for Microsoft SharePoint solution further enables organizations to adopt a proactive information governance strategy by focusing on content spread across multiple SharePoint sites and farms. EMC SourceOne for Microsoft SharePoint solution delivers operational control, compliance and e-discovery capabilities without impacting SharePoint end-users.

Customers benefit from the ability to determine when to migrate, consolidate or virtualize their technology deployments to increase efficiencies of scale.
