EMC and Capgemini Launch Case-as-a-Service Solution to Transform Case Management[1]

Fully-Managed Service, Built on EMC Documentum xCP, Can reduce Costs and Time to Delivery by Up to 30 Percent

PARIS and VIENNA, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

News Highlights:

  • New, fully-managed case management and correspondence management service brings together EMC technology and leading vertical expertise from Capgemini
  • Revolutionary way to procure proven case management services, reducing costs and time-to-value
  • Built as an off the shelf business solution focused on the end-user
  • Targets all key industry verticals, starting with an initial focus on the Public Sector

EMC® Corporation (NYSE: EMC) and Capgemini, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services today announced the launch of its joint Case-as-a-Service (CaaS) Solution. This fully-managed offering combines rich technology from EMC with vertical industry and process expertise, global delivery model and proven infrastructure support services from Capgemini. The solution is initially targeted at Public Sector organizations, with plans to rapidly expand across a number of other vertical markets. The solution is being launched at Momentum, the EMC Information Intelligence Group's EMEA user conference.

Organizations across all industries face the requirement of streamlining people-driven processes and workflows to raise efficiency, cut costs, stay competitive and provide better, faster citizen and customer service. Public Sector agencies seek agility to react and respond to political, economic and societal pressures; healthcare and insurance companies require advanced process automation for claims, and banks look to reduce costs and time for processing loans. To address these case management challenges, organizations have typically built heavily-coded custom legacy applications, which can take months to deploy, or business process management applications which prove too rigid. These multiple different applications, even within single organizations, can lead to a high Total Cost of Ownership. Capgemini and EMC joint Service-based model helps to accelerate the move from paper to digitization, reducing time, cost and speeding up processes and moves from Capex to Opex expenditure – by providing an adaptable solution and a single point of contact for information.

Benefits of the EMC-Capgemini Case-as-a-Service Solution include:

  • Faster time-to-value and reduced total cost of ownership – preconfigured solution requiring no client software to install, ease of customization and flexible scalability. Solutions available in a fully-managed environment with the intent to reduce costs and delivery time by up to 30%.
  • Improved productivity, efficiency and service levels – eliminate paper at the point of origin, better control and visibility to information, user access to information anytime, anywhere and streamlined processes.
  • Reduced procurement and implementation risks – minimal capital investment, pricing based on per-case basis, can be procured on a short-term basis, and service by Capgemini and EMC.

The solution could help for example to digitize correspondence within government departments, improve communication and costs for food retailers and speed up access to interview archives for police services.

The EMC-Capgemini CaaS solution is comprised of an integrated technology stack, including EMC® Documentum® xCP, the leading case management platform, EMC® Captiva® for enterprise capture and EMC® Document Sciences® for customer communications management. It also includes EMC virtualization technology based on VCE Vblock, and provisioning and storage. The solution is also "EMC Certified" having been validated by EMC® Proven Professional Certified Architects as well as an independent third party organization for functional completeness, performance and scalability, security and interoperability. Certified status instills high standards of customer confidence in the solution architecture and foundation.

The Case-as-a-Service solution extends the strategic alliance between EMC and Capgemini, enabling customers to reduce costs and gain efficiency and business agility.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
