ARMONK, NY - 24 Oct 2014: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Gartner has again positioned IBM the furthest in the leaders quadrant in its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management report by Mark R. Gilbert, Karen M. Shegda, Kenneth Chin, Gavin Tay, and Hanns Koehler-Kruener published on September 25, 2014. IBM is positioned the furthest for both completeness of vision and ability to execute for the second consecutive year.

IBM’s ECM portfolio is a key component of its Big Data and Analytics strategy, providing an easy way for organizations to discover content, recognize its value, then act on it for better business insight and outcomes. 

 “Our attorneys are using IBM Content Navigator to gain mobile access to content from the courtroom. The solution allows them to bring up information and documents related to a particular case quickly and saves them having to carry around stacks of paper files,” said Christopher Mahoski, Systems Analyst at GuideOne Insurance. “We’ve also considerably reduced the risk of crucial documents not being available during a legal case or as part of a discovery request. This offers a clear cost benefit – we’re potentially saving millions by mitigating the risk of key information being lost or misplaced.” 

According to the Gartner Report, “the worldwide market for ECM software grew by 8.6% in 2013, to a revenue total of $5.1 billion, which indicates that ECM technologies continue to attract more users and deliver value to enterprises.”

"We believe this latest evaluation from Gartner clearly demonstrates that IBM's investment in a comprehensive portfolio of enterprise content management software and solutions continues to extend our leadership in the market,” said Doug Hunt, General Manager of Enterprise Content Management at IBM.  “Our breakthrough innovations such as IBM Navigator make it easy for clients to leverage content for their most critical work and processes in the cloud to improve decisions, collaboration and productivity.”

Gartner’s recent report IBM Takes Steps to Improve the Usability, Consumability and Flexibility of Its ECM Portfolio by Karen M. Shegda and Kenneth Chin published on August 5, 2014 evaluates IBM Content Navigator.

IBM's ECM software supports the company's Big Data initiative, which helps organizations find insights in new and emerging types of data and content to be more agile and competitive.

IBM has established the world’s deepest portfolio of Big Data and Analytics technology that spans research and development, solutions and software. IBM has invested $24 billion to build its capabilities in Big Data and Analytics through R&D and more than 30 acquisitions. Today, more than 15,000 analytics consultants, 6,000 industry solution business partners and 400 IBM mathematicians are helping clients use big data to transform their organizations.
