Gartner Magic Quadrant recognises OpenText as 'leader' in ECM

14 Nov 2016

Enterprise information management provider OpenText has been positioned as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management (ECM), the company has announced.

The report analysed 15 ECM vendors and found that the global market is evolving to a framework for specific use cases and audiences and the technology becomes more purpose-driven, tightly affiliated with content systems.

“By 2018, more than 20% of the enterprise content management solution sales will address multiorganisation 'ecosystem content'," the report says.

OpenText chief marketing officer Adam Howatson says the company's recognition as a leader in ECM demonstrates its commitment to digital transformation and its customers.

“The progression of our product offerings, both organically and through strategic acquisitions, allows us to offer a portfolio of rich solutions that evolve with market requirements and lead to success for our customers," he says.

Gartner predicts that the new evolution of ECM will create new opportunities for leaders in the market, especially those who:

"Disrupt monolithic ECM solutions, which no longer meet organisations' fast-changing content requirements; Demand increasingly distributed, more diverse, smarter and more contextualised content and use cases; and emphasise business-driven requirements to draw on LOB content management investments."

OpenText has been adding a wider range of solutions that are helping the company expand its market position across a range of industries.
