OpenText has been named a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) report.

OpenText is a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM) and Gartner is one of the leading worldwide research and advisory firms.

The OpenText Content Suite has been especially designed to enable an enterprise to transform to fit the digital world, while reducing risk and keeping costs down.

This is part of the EIM strategy by OpenText. The EIM strategy is made up of five comprehensive and integrated product suites, and as a whole delivers a unified developer platform that is engaging and consistent for users.

It allows organisations to discover and manage information which in turn encourages growth and innovation.

“With the exponential growth of enterprise information, a variety of mobile devices on which to view it and deployment options on premises or in the cloud, it has become more difficult than ever to manage the information flow throughout the organisation," said Muhi Majzoub, senior vice president of Engineering at OpenText.

"Our Content Suite offers an agile information governance strategy designed to reduce risk and mitigate the cost of growing volumes of content in the enterprise while allowing CIOs to focus on using information to drive growth and innovation."

Gartner's Magic Quadrant is a way to gauge leaders who are executing their current vision well while also looking to the future. These leaders have the highest combined scores for ability to execute and completeness of vision.

In the realm of ECM, the leaders have strong channel partners, are situated in many regions, have consistent financial performance and offer support and good customer service.

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

Along with focusing on solutions to meet this demand, more ECM vendors are offering cloud-based environments, mobile interfaces and social capabilities to meet the market’s needs, states the Gartner report.

The concept of ‘content in context’ is key as the market evolves. It is becoming increasingly apparent that enterprises need to deliver personalised content ‘to the right people, at the right time, one the right devices, and in the context of particular business processes or needs,’ states the report.
