Leading Analyst Firm Recognizes Oracle as a Leader in Enterprise Content Management

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) - Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)

News Facts

  • Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management" positions Oracle in the Leaders Quadrant.
  • According to Gartner, "Organizations need ECM to manage the increasing growth, volume and diversity of the unstructured content that now represents up to 80% of enterprise information."
  • As discussed in the report, "Leaders have the highest combined scores for Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. They are doing well and are prepared for the future with a clearly articulated vision. In the context of ECM, they have strong channel partners, presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technology or vertical market. Leaders deliver a suite that addresses all six core components [document management, document imaging, records management, workflow, Web content management, and document-centric collaboration], though these are not necessarily owned by them, tightly integrated, unique or best-of-breed in each area. We place more emphasis this year on demonstrated enterprise deployments; integration with other business applications and content repositories; incorporation of Web 2.0 and XML capabilities; and vertical process/horizontal solutions focus. Leaders should drive market transformation."
