Press release from the issuing company

Colleyville, TX (August 16, 2005) – Madison Advisors today announced the release of its Enterprise Output Management Market Study, a comprehensive report on the enterprise output market. The report culminates Madison Advisors’ extensive study on the transactional enterprise output management market. During the study, Madison Advisors analyst team assessed market demand, analyzed end-user requirements, and conducted hands-on assessments of the latest solutions from the top vendors of enterprise output management systems, including ASG-Cypress, Emtex, Esker, IBM, Levi Ray & Shoup, Macro 4, Océ, and Solimar Systems. Madison Advisors’ Enterprise Output Management Market Study is a must-read for any organization making a major decision related to enterprise output management in the next 18 months. It includes extensive analysis of current and future market trends, with insight into how they affect the end-user and vendor community. The report also shares best practices from organizations that are highly successful with enterprise output management, and, for each solution included in the study, it discusses best fits and provides a complete solution review. “Our study is the most comprehensive that the data center and office markets have seen for enterprise output management systems,” explains Richard Huff, principal analyst with Madison Advisors and on the study. “Because the findings are based on the full spectrum of end-user and vendor aspects of these markets, they present an accurate picture of where output management is headed. This information is invaluable to organizations looking to make changes to their paper-based and electronic output strategies.” Highlights from Madison Advisors’ study include: Print center consolidation is driving adoption – Organizations use print management software to centralize and load balance document production across all resources – data centers, centralized reprographics, and distributed workgroup printers – with the ultimate goal of maximizing throughput, reducing costs, and monitoring operations from a single point of control to reduce risk. Output management solutions are open to integration – Nearly all of the solutions assessed during this Market Study include application programming interfaces for customized integration into an organization’s environment. To support a wide range of customer requirements, the vendors expose their output management functionality for integration into other corporate systems, such as workflow process managers and portals. Output management is riddled with complexity – Most of the solutions on the market are mature products, originally designed to address specific customer needs. The vendors have evolved their products by adding support for additional printers and data streams. However, in many cases, they support different output types with varying levels of functionality.
