Oracle Press Release

Leading Analyst Firm Positions Oracle in Leaders Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management

Redwood Shores, CA – Oct. 16, 2008

News Facts

Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management” positions Oracle in the Leaders Quadrant.
Gartner Magic Quadrants position vendors within a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision.
According to Gartner, vendors in the Leaders quadrant “have the highest combined scores for ability to execute and completeness of vision. They are doing well and are prepared for the future with a clearly articulated vision. In the context of content management, they have strong channel partners, a presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technology or vertical market. Leaders deliver a suite that addresses all six core components, though these are not necessarily tightly integrated or best-of-breed in each area. Greater emphasis is given this year to demonstrated enterprise deployments; integration with other business applications and content repositories; incorporation of Web 2.0 and XML capabilities; and vertical-process/horizontal-solution focus. Market leaders can, and should, drive market transformation.”
Oracle® Universal Content Management is a unified enterprise content management platform that enables organizations to leverage market-leading document management, Web content management, digital asset management, and records retention functionality to build and complement their business applications.
