Pathlore Forms Alliance with EMC to Deliver
EMC is the world leader in information storage and management. As a result of the alliance, Pathlore will resell the industry-leading EMC Documentum Enterprise Content Management platform and deliver an integrated enterprise content management and learning management system. The new system will eliminate the need for multiple content repositories â€“ including those dedicated to learning and development â€“ enabling companies to have one, central content repository, which users can access to create, manage, deliver and archive learning content.
â€œAs training becomes more strategic, there is a need to capture and retrieve all of the knowledge assets a company has accumulated and leverage those resources to build the most effective learning experience,â€ said Leonard Greenberg, chief technology officer for Pathlore. â€œUsing an enterprise content management system where the content already resides, instead of recreating the content in a separate learning content management system silo, will assure the most up-to-date information is delivered in training courses, while reducing the cost of developing training.â€
â€œIntegrating enterprise learning and content management into the smart enterprise suite can help organizations reduce the cost of creating, disseminating and archiving online education; this integration may well cause learning content management systems to become obsolete,â€ said Kathy Harris, group vice president, Gartner Inc.
The EMC Documentum platform consists of a common content platform and repository that enables organizations to collaborate when managing unstructured content â€“ such as documents, email, web pages, records and rich media â€“ that drives business operations and enhances learning. Content from the Pathlore learning management suite can be accessed and published by the Documentum platform, which interfaces with popular authoring tools from industry leaders like Macromedia as well as various other tools for capturing, storing and assembling content. The Pathlore solution will not only deliver the training but also track its completion.
â€œPathlore brings market leadership, a significant customer base and experience in developing standards for the training industry,â€ said Barry Ruditsky, vice president of indirect channels for EMC Software. â€œOur customers have told us that they view learning content management systems as a transitional technology and have asked us to provide a solution that will simplify, standardize and centralize the management of all types of content. Working with Pathlore extends our ability to meet additional customer requirements.â€
