ECM Sees Massive Growth: Gartner Magic Quadrant ReportsNovember 11, 2011 No Comments
Gartner notes that even though the global economy has been in a prolonged recession the last few years, spending on enterprise content and records management actually grew on a year after year basis. Spending was up 5.1% in 2009 and increased again by 7.6% last year. Moreover, they predict growth will continue at an impressive compound annual rate of 11.4% through 2015.
Gartner says its clients use ECM solutions to meet a number of productivity objectives, including regulatory compliance and e-discovery goals. One of the keys to reaching these goals, they say, is an ‘integration with Microsoft Office Suite for management of new and collaboratively authored content’. This is apparently true regardless of the ECM solution being used.SOCIAL BUSINESS
