EMC World 2010: The head of EMC's Information Intelligence Group has revealed the latest plans for his branch of the company.
Mark Lewis, president of the former EMC Content Management and Archiving, said that the recently renamed unit will focus on new partnerships while keeping a long-term objective of moving into the cloud.
Lewis said that the goal will be to offer a system that can manage private cloud data and information based in public cloud web services, which EMC estimates will comprise almost a third of all corporate data in 10 years.
"Most businesses are going to be 'hybridised'," he said. "Most organisations are not going to be all on one or the other."
Lewis also announced a tie-up with Microsoft SharePoint, and said that EMC's SourceOne governance tool will be available later this quarter when SharePoint 2010 launches.
SourceOne could be especially important for SharePoint, according to Lewis, who described its spread in the business world as "viral" owing to its being introduced by end users rather than IT staff or a chief information officer.
"When we're talking about organising our business it's absolutely critical that we let users have that capability, but that we also put the right governance behind it," he said.
Lewis also revealed a pending announcement with SAP for a combined financial services offering, as well as a deal with integration specialist Informatica.
