OnDemand enables customers to stay current on the latest software releases, simplify management of highly-complex applications and lower overall IT maintenance spend, as the IT stack required to run the applications and solutions are managed in data centers, securely connected to the customers' local area networks.
The initial solutions for OnDemand include:
The underlying technology of OnDemand is a new hybrid Cloud deployment model for enterprise-class applications, designed to help customers accelerate their journey to the Cloud. Developed using a range of best-in-class technologies from VMware, RSA and EMC, the infrastructure can contain one or many EMC and EMC partner products and can be completely portable from one data centre to another. It also enables customers to provision and configure the system for rapid deployment.
Lahey Clinic, a teaching hospital of Tufts University School of Medicine, is a physician-led, non-profit group practice with nearly 450 physicians and more than 4,000 nurses, therapists and other support staff working together to provide compassionate care and superior patient outcomes. As a participant in the OnDemand Early Adopter programme, Lahey recognizes the value of the offering.
Paul Reed, ECM Manager at Lahey, stated: "EMC OnDemand is a compelling approach to managing business-critical information. Simply put, EMC offers the expertise to install, configure and manage key components of our infrastructure, enabling us to focus on other areas."
Melissa Webster, Programme Vice President, IDC, in "EMC Announces EMC OnDemand: Hybrid Cloud Deployment Model with Managed Service for Content and Case Management, Capture, Customer Communications, and Governance", Doc lcUS22825711, May 2011, stated: "EMC OnDemand offers tremendous benefits to customers in speed of deployment, ease of management, cost savings, and flexibility. OnDemand should dramatically accelerate new application delivery and reduce implementation costs for EMC's customers. We think this could significantly change the total cost of ownership (TCO) equation for EMC's Information Intelligence Group products, and give EMC an important competitive advantage."
Paul O'Brien, Vice President of EMC OnDemand for the Information Intelligence Group at EMC, stated: "EMC is thrilled to deliver revolutionary technology to accelerate our customers' journey to the Cloud. Taking industry-leading solutions like Captiva, Document Sciences and Documentum to the Cloud is an exciting next step in information management. The initial interest and feedback from customers and partners has been overwhelming; the overall ease of on-boarding, combined with the time-to-market and continuous cost savings benefits simply jump off the page."
