EMC and Unisys Collaborate on New Client Solutions for Secure Business Operations

    Online News published in DMReview.com
November 17, 2005

EMC Corporation and Unisys Corporation announced an expansion of their 13-year alliance to include the development of new, specialized solutions designed to help customers address key business challenges - especially the availability of critical information for real-time business decision-making. The new solutions, expected to focus initially on three areas of collaboration - real-time infrastructure, solutions for public-sector organizations and enterprise security - are planned to integrate Unisys services and EMC technology to enable information lifecycle management, which facilitates movement, availability and use of critical information throughout the enterprise value chain.

Aligned with the Unisys 3D Visible Enterprise (3D-VE) strategy, the new solutions are expected to give Unisys clients the benefits of secure business operations through visibility into the linkages among their strategic business processes and underlying IT infrastructure.

The two companies are collaborating on the development of a Unisys solution that is designed to provide customers with virtualization, comprehensive monitoring and analysis of their business and IT infrastructure. The companies plan to leverage the capabilities of innovative EMC software, including EMC Smarts, EMC Documentum, and EMC VisualSRM, along with Unisys expertise and specialized real-time infrastructure (RTI) services and solutions to provide secure monitoring, troubleshooting and analysis of business processes and their associated infrastructure, such as in a data center serving as a utility for business process outsourcing on a global basis.

EMC also expects to play a key role as an infrastructure partner at the Unisys Government Transformation Center in Reston, Virginia. At this facility, Unisys works with alliance partners to develop, test and showcase new solutions for government agencies.

Additionally, the two companies are planning collaborative projects designed to further secure business operations, involving the EMC Surveillance, Analysis and Management (SAMS) solution. This combination of EMC storage platforms, software and professional services enables the storage, archiving, fast searching and analysis of petabytes - millions of gigabytes - of video and other data from physical security devices such as surveillance cameras and access control systems.

The expanded alliance with EMC and the planned solutions are energized by Unisys 3D-VE strategy, which is designed to enable a client to see and then act on cause-effect relationships among business strategy, processes and IT requirements throughout the entire enterprise and gain unprecedented visibility into the impacts and costs that can block effective execution. To support this strategy, Unisys is aligning with an exclusive list of the world's leading technology providers to deliver customer solutions that harness its partners' expertise with the power of 3D Visible Enterprise.
