Quest Software Listed as a Leader in Integrated Document Archive
Press release from the issuing company
IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 8 Quest Software, Inc., a leading provider of application management solutions, today announced that it has been listed as a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Integrated Document Archive and Retrieval Systems (IDARS)*. This is the second year is a row that Gartner has positioned Quest as a leader with its Vista Plus Enterprise Information Management solution. Gartner assesses vendors in the IDARS market on the completeness of their strategic vision and ability to execute, estimating vendor viability, delivery capabilities, product features and IDARS footprint.
Gartner describes products within IDARS as consolidated systems for storage, access, management, distribution and viewing of data that is often print-stream originated. According to Gartner's report, IDARS continue to be popular applications and much of the interest is because enterprises are attempting to move away from product printing of documents toward an IDARS repository that supports online viewing.
Vista Plus is designed to facilitate the distribution of business-critical reports and electronic documents throughout the enterprise. Vista Plus reduces print output costs, including paper waste, and in many cases, eliminates the need for microfiche. Since Vista Plus allows users to view information when and where they need it -- over a LAN, WAN, the Internet or an Intranet -- it significantly enhances end-user productivity. In addition, Vista Plus is characterized by Gartner as having enhanced distributed output management (DOM) capabilities.
"Quest prides itself on delivering real and immediate value to our customers,'' said Vinny Smith, chairman and CEO of Quest Software, Inc. "Gartner's recognition of our market leadership is another validation point that Quest excels at meeting our customers' needs with intuitive user-friendly information management solutions that ensure a quick return on investment and reduce future technology expenses.''
