Unlike competitive offerings geared for consumers, Syncplicity solutions were built for the enterprise, enabling users to interact and share content on their device of choice with the security and governance IT requires. The company’s solutions help organizations manage, sync, share and backup files across its extended enterprise, providing the tools they need to maximize productivity, protect their corporate data, and reduce infrastructure and support costs.
Integrating Syncplicity with the Information Intelligence Group portfolio provides a compelling opportunity for organizations, leveraging EMC’s rich heritage in enterprise content management, information governance solutions and cloud storage, thousands of enterprise customers who rely on its technology to run their businesses and EMC’s strong go-to-market channel. The addition of Syncplicity also extends EMC’s strategy of enabling the ‘New User’ in the Post PC era, those who want to access, share, collaborate and participate in business processes on their preferred device.
The Information Intelligence Group division of EMC is focused on four key strategic priorities for customer success – delighting the "New User" of the Post PC era with a compelling, fast and modern user experience across a variety of end-point devices; accelerating our customers’ journey to the cloud; delivering pervasive governance to protect information wherever it exists, and helping our customers transform their business with high value solutions.
