Aragon Research, a new technology-focused research and advisory firm committed to providing thought-leading strategic research and trusted advisory services, announced its 2012 Hot Vendors Special Report today. The report features four research notes which overview 18 vendors. The four markets covered in this set of reports are:
- Content Management
- Social, Idea Management
- Learning, HCM, and Talent Management
Jim Lundy, Founder and CEO of Aragon Research commented, “Nearly every vendor we looked at was leveraging the cloud to offer their products and services. Cloud is proving to be a differentiator in how software is delivered and the pace at which new releases occur.”
Aragon Research has found that rapid change is occurring in content management. Not only is the cloud causing significant change in the ability to share content simply and quickly, but additional features including mobile support are expanding.
In the emerging tablet era, managing mobility is a growing priority for enterprises, particularly as people gravitate to these and other mobile devices. Enterprise Mobile Management is a relatively new market, and it is consolidating both device and application management categories. Attention to vendors and products in early stages is required to get on top of this fast-moving market.
Innovation and agility are essential for businesses to remain competitive. Tools for brainstorming and idea generation are growing in interest and importance.
Enterprise social initiatives can be greatly enhanced when integrated with core business processes and functions. Look for increasing activity in the area of profile and expertise location tools to enhance learning, HCM, and talent management.
