IBM Number One in Enterprise Content Management Marketshare According to Report

2004 Marks Third Consecutive Year of Leadership

ARMONK, NY - 20 Jul 2005: IBM today announced it is the leading enterprise content management vendor (ECM), in terms of worldwide license revenue, for 2004 according to a report issued by the independent research firm Gartner, Inc.[1] The report states that IBM led all vendors of enterprise content management, which includes core capabilities like integrated document management, web content management, records management, document capture, document-based collaboration and workflow.

This report marks the third consecutive year that IBM has been ranked the overall market leader as measured by new license revenue among ECM vendors. According to the report, the ECM market grew by 8.4 percent in 2004, driven by business' need to leverage their data and meet changing regulatory compliance demands.

IBM introduced the latest version of its DB2 Content Manager portfolio of products in March of 2005. With the announcement of DB2 Content Manager v. 8.3, DB2 Document Manager 8.3 and DB2 CommonStore 8.3, IBM delivered the industry's first content and information integration platform to leverage information across diverse repositories, providing a single view of business critical information.

Information on Demand
The desire by businesses to access, manage and deliver information more efficiently is driving rapid change in the IT marketplace. Traditional low-tech, hardware-only approaches by proprietary vendors are meeting with resistance as companies grappling with new government mandates and business demands strive to capture and integrate information in a more seamless, real-time fashion across the enterprise. IBM's information on demand approach combines deep business insight with open standards, advanced storage systems, sophisticated systems management software and leading information management software to create efficient, cost effective and flexible information infrastructures. Regardless of industry, IBM helps companies transform data into insight to enable information on demand.
