Gartner ECM Quadrant Released

For those of you who follow enterprise content management, the latest Gartner magic quadrant has been made available by one of the "winners," EMC. The link, via the EMC site, is here. EMC just noses out IBM, whose entry includes both the DB2 Content Manager family and FileNet. Rounding out the Leader quadrant are OpenText (including Hummingbird acquisition) and Stellent. Hovering nearby are Vignette and Interwoven in the Visionary quadrant, and Hyland in the Challenger quadrant. Microsoft and Oracle, who seem to get all the press buzz, are farther back.

Most people don't know it, but EMC's Documentum Process Suite is an excellent BPMS, with ECM integration built in out of the box. If you're interested in content-centric BPM, check out my free report on Documentum Process Suite in the 2006 BPMS Report series.
