Cranford, NJ – May 24, 2012 – Paragon Solutions, an advisory consulting and systems integration firm, announced today that it was selected for two Partner Innovation Awards from the EMC Information Intelligence Group (IIG) during EMC World. The awards recognized two of Paragon’s solution offerings built on the EMC product suite, one in the area of Pervasive Governance and the other in the Financial Services Industry category.

The Pervasive Governance award, which was accepted by Paragon’s Director of Enterprise Content Management Doug Vargo, recognized the company’s Information Analytics and Remediation Solution (IARS). Built on EMC SourceOne eDiscovery – Kazeon, IARS enables organizations to gain insight into unmanaged file content and reduce overall risk by analyzing and remediating content to an archive for ongoing retention management or destruction. Paragon recently introduced a “backpack” model for IARS that offers the same diagnostic solution on-demand with a turn-key approach for clients.

Paragon received the Financial Services Industry award for its New Account Opening Solution. New Account Opening, which also attained the EMC Certified Solution designation in 2011, offers financial services institutions a portal for the collection and review of documents, streamlining the new account enrollment process. Leveraging components of both the EMC Documentum and Captiva product families, the solution offers easier application process tracking, fewer incomplete or dropped applications, faster application review and approval, and enhanced regulatory and corporate compliance. The award for the New Account Opening Solution was accepted by Amit Datla, director of business process management and enterprise content management for Paragon’s Industry Solutions Group.

“Paragon is pleased to be acknowledged by the EMC Information Intelligence Group for creating differentiated solutions that incorporate key EMC technologies such as Captiva, Documentum xCP and Source One and deliver significant benefits and value to our clients,” said Paragon President and CEO Daniel J. O’Connor.

Paragon received the awards at the 2012 EMC World conference during the Global Partner Summit in Las Vegas. Annually, EMC's IIG organization recognizes select partner firms that have developed innovative go-to-market solutions using EMC's information lifecycle management technologies.
