EMC Buys Documentum

EMC to Buy Documentum for About $1.7 Bln: Big news in the world of enterprise content and document management. Documentum was the largest player in this space.

“Data storage systems maker EMC Corp. on Tuesday said it would buy Documentum Inc. for about $1.7 billion to expand its document management software offerings.”

I’ve always associated EMC with hardware. “Expand its…offerings”? Did EMC have any “offerings” in this market?
