Topics: Content Management, Collaboration Research Note Number: 2012-20
Issues: What are the technologies and architectures that enterprises should leverage for collaboration?
What trends are impacting content and how it is managed?
Summary: Enterprises are looking for easy-to-deploy alternatives to traditional enterprise content management systems for creating and collaborating on content. Here we introduce six particularly interesting vendors.
In every market, there are always vendors with compelling offerings, products or both who are not yet on the enterprise radar. Perhaps because they are new or just small, they don’t yet have market awareness. Aragon Research is constantly looking for vendors that can provide our clients with helpful solutions.
In authoring and content management, the more things change the less they stay the same. Cloud content management is emerging and growing fast. New ways of authoring are also emerging, as are extensions to legacy offerings, particularly those that add to and extend the capabilities of Microsoft Office.
Today users want more than just to store content in the cloud and access it from anywhere. First, whatever they do, they want to do from their mobile devices, no matter where they are or what else they are doing. They also need quick, easy and transparent ways to connect to anyone they want to share the content with, whether inside or outside their enterprises, with access and authentication set up so that teams can be flexible and respond to the real world in real time.
The rise of tablets and the demand to share content have led to the growth of file sharing and cloud content management. We examine this trend in Research Note 2012-12, “Cloud Content Management in a Tablet Era.”
