EMC a Leader in Gartner Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Magic Quadrant…and More

Vince Lombardi, widely considered the greatest American football coach of all time, said, “Leaders are made; they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”

This rang true as I was looking back at the 2015 analyst firm reporting season for the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market, which has reached its culmination with the recent release of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management. Gartner has once again placed EMC in the Leader quadrant of its report.

This follows EMC’s positioning as a Leader in the Ovum Decision Matrix: Selecting an Enterprise Content Management Solution, 2015-2016 report, as well as the two new reports from Forrester Research: The Forrester Wave™: ECM Transactional Content Services, Q3 2015 and The Forrester Wave™: ECM Business Content Services, Q3 2015.

I believe the results further validate EMC’s offering in the following ways:

  • EMC has one of the most comprehensive ECM portfolios on the market
  • EMC has advanced its product offerings with cloud and mobile capabilities providing customers with various choices of delivery models
  • EMC offers numerous solutions that support many vertical industries and business processes including life sciences, pharma, utilities, financial services, and oil and gas
  • EMC’s technology partner ecosystem is well established and has a robust global presence

Most importantly, analysts have awarded EMC with some of the industry’s highest scores for strategy and vision – all centered around our next-generation ECM approach. With this approach (code-named Project Horizon), we are building upon our deep heritage, and extensive customer and partner ecosystem to revolutionize the way the industry thinks about ECM.  Watch the video below to learn more.

Video: Rohit Ghai, President of EMC’s Enterprise Content Division (ECD), and Chris McLaughlin, CMO, explain why ECD is leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and what the next-generation of ECM will bring.

Being positioned as a leader across these reports is no small feat when you think about the technology know-how, the business and industry intelligence, and the ability to execute – all while keeping an eye to the future . It’s one of the reasons that we’ve been in this industry for 25 years and offer a best-of-breed approach to both existing and new customers.

As I consider Coach Lombardi’s quote that “(effort) is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile,” I think, what’s more “worthwhile” than using this experience and leadership to help our customers achieve a greater competitive advantage?
