Reinforces Expertise in XML-based Content Lifecycle Management Solutions

Flatirons Solutions announced today that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with EMC Corporation (EMC) to support and sell the EMC Docato Component Services solution. The agreement includes providing support for existing Docato customers as well as sales and support for new Docato licenses, reflecting Flatirons Solutions’ expertise in XML-based content lifecycle management solutions for aerospace, automotive, electronics, financial services, government, healthcare, and publishing industries.

The Docato Component Services solution was part of EMC’s 2007 acquisition of Netherlands-based XHive, which included the XDB database and was integrated into EMC’s Information Intelligence Group (IIG). At that time, EMC notified XHive’s Docato customers that it would end of life the Docato system in 2014. Flatirons Solutions had previously licensed the Docato source code from EMC and uses the XDB/Docato stack in the structured content lifecycle management solutions it provides to its aviation and aerospace customers.

“EMC IIG performed a considerable amount of due diligence and has selected Flatirons Solutions, a long-term EMC partner, to continue to support existing Docato licenses and to sell and support new licenses,” said Barry Ruditsky, vice president of OEM sales for EMC’s IIG. “Flatirons Solutions has helped many EMC IIG customers develop solutions for their organizations using Docato. This expertise and Flatirons Solutions’ active customer base using the XDB/Docato stack in production environments afford them a unique position to carry the technology forward.”

“The agreement to support EMC’s current Docato customers and carry the Docato platform forward is a reflection of our continued partnership with EMC,” said JD Sillion, chief solutions officer for Flatirons Solutions. “Flatirons Solutions brings more than two decades of content lifecycle management experience to EMC’s Docato customers, a strong foundation upon which we will continue to support and evolve the platform to meet customers’ unique business requirements.”
