IBM Placed in Leaders Quadrant in Enterprise Content Management Magic Quadrant Report by Analyst Firm


IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned IBM in the Leaders Quadrant of its new Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management.(1)

According to a recent Gartner, Inc. Dataquest report, IBM-File Net is the largest Enterprise Content Management (ECM) vendor based on overall software revenue for 2006.(2) IBM believes its market footprint, along with its product sets and resources, positions the company well for large enterprise-wide deployments.
“We believe this evaluation from Gartner demonstrates that IBM’s investment in a comprehensive portfolio of enterprise content management software and solutions has generated business growth and leadership,” said Lee Roberts, general manager, IBM Enterprise Content Management. “Our commitment to addressing a broad set of content management challenges, along with our collaboration with key business partners, is delivering unique capabilities that support our customers’ industry-specific needs.”

According to the Gartner analysis, “leaders have the highest combined scores for their ability to execute and completeness of vision. They’re currently doing well and are prepared for the future with a clearly articulated vision. In the context of content management, leaders have strong channel partners, a presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technology or vertical market. Greater emphasis was given this year to suite integration, for example, a common user interface, common code base and single repository; demonstrated enterprise deployments; integration with other business applications and content repositories; and a vertical process/solutions focus.”

IBM’s enterprise content management software supports the company’s global Information on Demand initiative which provides customers with data exactly when and how they need it to improve their business processes, quickly respond to market needs and rapidly identify new business opportunities.
