Rome, Italy, 2008/08/07 - Gartner has included Gimacom - a leading provider of information lifecycle management solutions – in the Vendor Product Maps reported in the "Market Share: ECM Software, EMEA, 2007”, a Dataquest report published last June 20.
According to Gartner, the most respected research and consulting advisor in the IT services, GIMACOM is included as one of the most influential vendors of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technologies: among the top 20 players in the EMEA market (top 5 in Italy).
Inclusion criteria adopted by Gartner evaluate the following components: Document Library Services as check-in/check-out and versioning; Document Imaging Repository capabilities; Record Management (RM); Workflow – a critical technology providing more points -- Web Content Management (WCM); Document-Centric Collaboration as document sharing and project team support.
According to GIMACOM's management, Gartner’s report captures the strong position we’ve built as an established player in the ECM market and the trends cited are in line with our strategic direction to provide vertical solutions centered on the automation of document process to address customers’ increasingly complex regulatory and compliance requirements.
Such an ambitious achievement rewards a positioning strategy based on two main approaches namely: “solution specialisation” (i.e. reusable best practices binding content management to business process) and “industry focus” (i.e. the company’s responsiveness to specific business expertise) that leveraged the company’s ability to deliver valuable results.
GIMACOM expects the inclusion in the EMEA Vendor Product Maps for ECM (Enterprise Content Management) to stimulate the constant growth of the number of partners – currently including companies such as Ericsson, Capgemini, Reply and Almaviva – wishing to install GIMACOM EC5, the company’s flagship enterprise-class ECM platform that integrates content and business processes through high-level Content & Document Business Process Automation and to boost sales, already expected to go over 3 million euros by 2008.
GIMACOM (gimacom.com) is a software vendor delivering GIMACOM EC5, an enterprise-class content management platform that provides organisations with the ability to deploy scalable content-centric business applications such as employee intranets, partner and client extranets, public Websites, ISO and compliance processes and to support Enterprise Content Management (ECM) needs. Since its establishment in 2000, the company is recognized as a pioneer and innovator by world's leading multinational companies operating in financial services, telecommunications, healthcare and Italian central government. GIMACOM markets and delivers its software through strong partnerships with leading system integrators and consultants, as well as its own direct sales team.
