Ann Rockley has a post on CMSWatch re: the X-Hive acquisition. This makes me wonder if this is not really in response to two things –
- Success of products like MarkLogic and others in implementing pure XML repositories
- The complexity of emulating XML/XPath/xquery capability in old school architectures.
Whether EMC folds X-Hive capabilities into its existing CMA software products will tell us a great deal about the future of the unified platform.
