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”.

Gartner's 2019 and 2021 Content Management Review Charts

The top 5 biggest changes over the last two years include:

    • 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
    • Hyland – even after acquiring Nuxeo and Alfresco…didn’t really change
    • 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.
