Leading industry analyst firm positions Oracle in leaders quadrant for enterprise content management

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Oct. 29, 2007 -- Oracle today announced that it has been positioned in the leaders quadrant in the recent Gartner report, "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management, 2007."(1) The report evaluates vendors for their ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Gartner states, "Enterprise Content Management is an 'umbrella term' and represents a framework and vision for integrating a broad range of content management technologies and content formats." Gartner also states, "The market for enterprise content management in 2007 is approximately $2.9 billion, based on worldwide total software revenue. Gartner predicts that total software revenue from the worldwide ECM market will grow at a compound annual rate of 12.9 percent through 2011."(1)

As part of the hot-pluggable, standards-based family of Oracle(R) Fusion Middleware products, Oracle's enterprise content management software offers the industry's easiest-to-use and most comprehensive platform for securely managing, sharing, storing and retrieving structured and unstructured content across heterogeneous IT environments. Oracle provides an array of enterprise content management software including Oracle Universal Content Management, Oracle Universal Records Management, Oracle Imaging and Process Management, Oracle Information Rights Management, and Oracle Content Database Suite.

"The explosive growth in unstructured content managed by organizations, combined with greater concerns over intellectual property, information privacy and government regulations, has made enterprise content management a mission-critical issue for both the private and public sector," said Andy MacMillan, vice president, Content Management, Oracle. "We believe Oracle's position in the leaders quadrant for Enterprise Content Management is further confirmation that our customers are able to increase productivity and enhance the value of enterprise applications while reducing information management costs and simplifying regulatory compliance by using Oracle's comprehensive and integrated enterprise content management software."
