Market Trends

Alfresco was recently positioned in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant in the 2012 edition of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management (ECM).  This validates our ongoing dedication to open innovation and enablement of content management in modern, mobile and connected work environments.

Alfresco is one of just two vendors in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant this year. ‘Vision’ in ECM, it seems, is getting harder to come by in a market that is largely dominated by proprietary, legacy software vendors.

Yet innovation in ECM is more important than ever as corporate content mobilizes to a broader and more diverse array of employees, partners and customers.   Business and IT leaders need solutions that let them power content-centric business processes that cross organizational boundaries and involve myriad content types, devices and constituents.

Alfresco’s visionary approach to ECM delivers:

  • One open content platform – in the cloud, on-prem or both – a truly hybrid ECM model
  • One mobile experience that lets users work the way they want to – while allowing IT to keep the control it needs
  • Common, standards-based APIs for cloud, on-prem and mobile development to let our partners and enterprise developers build they content-centric apps that meet the needs of their businesses.
  • Support for business processes, workflow, case management and strong security – all the hallmarks of true ECM

Combining support for mobile and cloud in ways that contribute to how we work today with deep understanding and commitment to traditional content management principles is what drives Alfresco’s vision today.  From transactional document management behind the firewall to file sharing in the cloud, Alfresco delivers the scalable, business-critical capabilities that modern, extended enterprises require to manage their content and enable their users both inside and outside the firewall.

We think this is visionary.  Read the whole Magic Quadrant to see what Gartner thinks.
