Forrester Research Names EMC Documentum a Leader in Enterprise Content Management

One thing is certain … information has not only retained its status as among an organization’s most valuable assets, but is actually gaining ground.  Effectively managing it becomes even more critical. And today, we couldn’t be happier that EMC has remained a leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) in the recently published report: “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Content Management, Q3, 2013”. EMC continues to be among the short list of companies to lead the pack across all Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technologies for its Documentum product suite.

Forrester evaluated 13 ECM vendors against 48 criteria across the following three key areas: current offering, strategy, and market presence. EMC scored the highest among any vendor in the current offering category for overall and business content capabilities and was among the leaders cited for their ability to address the wide range of technologies encompassing the content spectrum.

The good news doesn’t stop there: We also received the highest score possible for overall strategy and the market presence sub-category. For the strategy part of the evaluation, ECM vendors must show coherent strategies to help organizations align their technologies with the broad information management requirements of their customers and prospects. They must also have an extensive network of partners, system integrators, and solution providers in order to help customers implement, customize, and optimize their systems.

Best in class in current offering and highest rated for our strategic direction – what’s not to like? We feel that this type of recognition reinforces our desire to build the most innovative, robust, and trusted ECM platform on the market today.

Enabling Customer Transformation

More music to our ears. These shifts support what we are seeing in the market and reaffirm our strategy. We believe our latest Forrester recognition speaks to the fact that we are wholly focused on helping customers transform their businesses by providing enterprise software, and cloud ECM and industry-specific solutions that solve their toughest information management challenges. EMC works tirelessly to deliver solutions that help customers connect information to work to drive this transformation and increase their productivity. At the same time, we have made it easier for them to adopt and deploy ECM technologies by providing just as much cloud as they need and enabling them to work where and how they want to work, speeding their time to value.

Being what we consider to be the #1 trusted ECM vendor in protecting businesses’ most valuable asset – information – is a great place to be.
