With over 70%-80% of all corporate data locked up inside documents and other unstructured data objects, the world of content management is an important area to keep current. Platform 3 Solutions shared the results of the Gartner Magic Quadrant chart around ‘content services’ from last year – especially taking a closer look in comparing 2019 to 2020. On October 18, 2021 the latest iteration was made available and to sum it up: “HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN”.
The top 5 biggest changes over the last two years include:
- BIG DROPS
- IBM – from leader to niche as they cannot find their way
- OpenText – almost reduced to a visionary with no real focus on content
- BOX – moved up significantly
- NO CHANGE
- Hyland – even after acquiring Nuxeo and Alfresco…didn’t really change
- KING OF THE MOUNTAIN
- Microsoft – changed the pricing and economic landscape of content forever.
If you are using any of these on-premise offerings today, there is a need to have Platform 3 Solutions assess the environment to give you an analysis on where to go next – and how to get there. Over time, those documents and objects also depreciate in value and could be moved to a cold archive or completely deleted all together. Remember that when going to the cloud, the costing models become more detailed and the lift-and-shift of terabytes of unnecessary documents should not take place.
