EMC Corporation today announced that the Israeli government has selected the EMC Documentum Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform as the standard for all ministries and offices. EMC and its partner, NessPRO (Ness Technologies’ software product distribution group), won the project which was led by Israel’s Ministry of Finance and the government’s central purchasing office. The project is considered to be one of the most strategic cross government tenders issued by the government in Israel in recent years.
The Documentum system is core to the government’s long-term strategy for a unified infrastructure to serve the diverse document management and archiving requirements across the government’s ministries.
Documentum will be deployed both on-premise and as a cloud service for each ministry to consume content services with comprehensive data integrity and security. The system will be used to unify, simplify and accelerate the day-to-day work of managing internal and external information, expedite operational tasks and automate the flow of work through the government.
“This bid and its results can be seen as a game changer in the Israeli IT industry. We have chosen a leading technology backed by a strong vendor and its partner in Israel who have demonstrated high skills, determination and commitment,” said Tal Haramati, Senior Deputy of Israel’s Accountant General. “This is a unique project, as the system will be deployed across the government infrastructure, will involve a broad use of cloud services and will serve thousands of government users.”

We are committed to working together with the government of Israel and EMC to assure Israel will become a model of government ECM implementation.”
