Press release from the issuing company
October 23, 2007 - PALO ALTO, Calif. - Xerox Corporation today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading technology research and advisory firm, placed Xerox DocuShare software in the "Visionaries" quadrant in the recently published "Magic Quadrant" report on enterprise content management (ECM)*.
Commercial ECM software developers and providers are evaluated for the Magic Quadrant based on several criteria including how they sell and support their ECM products and services on a global basis.
ECM offerings allow businesses to securely and easily capture, create, review, manage and publish information and content such as financial and administrative documents and legally-binding contracts across their organizations. The ECM Magic Quadrant** report provides guidance to Gartner clients who are evaluating enterprise content management vendors and solutions.
Xerox DocuShare and DocuShare CPX are two Web-based ECM software applications that uniquely run on one unified technology platform. DocuShare offers basic content services, with a full range of scanning and production-level imaging capabilities that allow users to capture paper documents into DocuShare to integrate them into workflows and business processes.
DocuShare CPX provides more advanced content and process management functionality, allowing customers to meet specialized requirements, for compliance initiatives such as detailed audit histories, automated auditing processes and on-demand reporting capabilities for industries such as financial services, healthcare and education.
"We think being categorized in the Visionaries Quadrant in this report is a testament to our team's longstanding commitment to providing our customers with a powerful and cost-effective ECM offering that simplifies how businesses share, access and manage content," said David Smith, vice president and general manager, Xerox DocuShare Business Unit.
