The respected analysts at Gartner have just released their annual assessments of the ECM/content services sector:
- 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms
- 2019 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Content Services Platforms
Both are highly recommended reading for everyone involved in content management.The Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms offers a higher-level view—assessing 18 different vendors on the completeness of vision and their ability to execute. This is important stuff. As organizations digitally transform, the strategies and tactics behind ingesting, distributing, using and governing information have changed immeasurably.
The days of monolithic, inflexible ECM stacks are gone. It’s the age of content services, defined by a need to utilize lightweight, low-touch, content management solutions that increase agility and solve problems. Cloud, analysis and automation are priorities.
Not every vendor approaches this the same way, though. Gartner’s annual Magic Quadrant is an easy-to-digest report card outlining how the various vendors are developing their solutions to meet these current needs while providing a path to future success.
We’re thrilled to be able to say, once again, that OpenText Content Services has been recognized as a Leader for completeness of vision and our ability to execute.
Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for Content Services Platforms report complements the Magic Quadrant. It evaluates 15 functional capabilities of the leading content services platforms and applies those scores to determine how each solution supports a set of five common use cases:
- Integrated Business Applications
- Content Application Composition
- Document Management
- Records Management
- Team Workspace
Both the OpenText™ Extended ECM platform (including Content Suite) and OpenText™ Documentum™ platform were evaluated in this year’s Critical Capabilities report. And both scored very well.
