Armedia Earns First Prize in EMC® Documentum® Web Services Developer Challenge

by | Nov 7, 2007

Atlanta, GA; November 7, 2007 – Armedia LLC, a leading provider of content management related products and solutions in the United States, announced today that it has won first place in the EMC® Documentum® Web Services Developer Challenge. The award was presented today at EMC’s Momentum conference in Monaco.

EMC’s challenge gave software developers up to 30 days to create unique enterprise content management (ECM) applications based on the new EMC® Documentum® 6 platform. The challenge was the first in a series offered by the EMC Developer Network ( The challenge attracted responses from nearly 200 registrants and, in September, eight finalists were selected by a panel of experts including EMC architects as well as industry experts Larry Cable from BEA, Jeffrey Hammond from Forrester, and Geoff Bock from Bock & Company. Developers from 30 different countries participated in the challenge, and more than half of the entrants were from outside of the United States.

Armedia met EMC Documentum’s challenge by delivering the Incident Management System (IMS) aimed at helping insurance adjusters in the field collect artifacts related to a claim. IMS allows Windows Mobile 6 users to gather data such as notes, recorded interviews and photos taken with the device’s camera, and associate that data with incidents stored in a DFS-enabled Documentum repository. In addition, IMS integrates with Flickr’s web services API, allowing adjusters to upload “iReporter” images of a claim directly into their corporate Documentum repository.

“Using Documentum 6, Armedia was able to rapidly create an innovative Windows Mobile application that utilizes Documentum Foundation Services,” stated Terence McDevitt, IMS team lead and Director of Product Development for Armedia. “Prior to a web-services enabled ECM platform such as D6, development of an application such as IMS would have taken weeks. Armedia’s team implemented it in ten days.”

McDevitt continued, “Documentum has proven that they understand the direction web-services enabled content management is headed, and Armedia is proud to have the expertise to help further this direction.”

n order to develop IMS in such a short time frame, Armedia drew upon its deep Documentum and web services expertise to assemble an outstanding team capable of meeting the Developer Challenge guidelines. Those from Armedia responsible for designing and developing IMS were Anushka Munasinghe, Patrick Cotrona and Terence McDevitt. IMS will be made available for download on EMC® Documentum’s ® Developer Network –
