Presented by Alan Pelz-Sharpe at the Documentation and Training Life Sciences conference June 23-26, 2008 in Indianapolis.
The ECM marketplace is changing rapidly with no slowdown in sight. As major infrastructure vendors (IBM, Microsoft and Oracle) threaten to take over the sector, what will happen to incumbents like EMC, OpenText and Interwoven? How will Open Source options play out - and what about Software as a Service? One thing is for sure the ECM market is growing substantially - yet making sense of it becomes harder by the day. In this session we will look at current trends in the vendor marketplace, and how they will play out in 2008 and beyond. We will also subdivide the sector both by technology orientation and geographic dominance, and give our honest and independent opinion on the vendors in this space.
