The steady demand for enterprise content management (ECM) software in the past year has fueled acquisition fever, making buying decisions even harder for corporate customers. In response to this significant market change Forrester Research (NASDAQ:FORR) introduces its 2003 Enterprise Content Management TechRankings assessment of eight key software applications.
ECM continues to be a high-priority investment for companies. Almost one-third of senior technology decision-makers recently surveyed by Forrester are planning to purchase content management technologies in 2003. Forrester believes that ECM is an important market trend prompted by firms' departure from homegrown content management systems in favor of an integrated approach to managing all of their disparate content -- text, graphics, spreadsheets, multimedia files, source code -- across their entire company.
The CMS/ECM systems ranked are:
o Documentum with its 5 ECM Platform v5.2
o FileNet with its P8
o IBM with its DB2 Content Manager 8.2
o Microsoft with its Content Management Server 2002
o Open Text with its Livelink Enterprise Suite 9.1.3
o Percussion with its Rhythmyx 5
o Stellent with its Content Management 6.2
o Vignette with its V7 Content Suite 7.1
