M-Files Strengthens Leadership Position in 2019 Nucleus Research ECM Technology Value Matrix
Strong Technology, User-Centric Functionality and Robust Usability Solidify M-Files as Leader for Sixth Consecutive Year
M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, announced it has been named a “Leader” in the 2019 Nucleus Research Technology Value Matrix for Enterprise Content Management (ECM). This marks the sixth consecutive year that M-Files has achieved Leader status, as the company continues to distance itself from competitors as the ECM sector frontrunner with the highest recognition for functionality.
Nucleus Research Technology evaluates Enterprise Content Management (ECM) providers on two core criteria – usability and functionality, as determined by analysis of interviews with end users and ongoing research by the firm. The 2019 report included reviews of 17 vendors and placed them in quadrants based on how Nucleus Research assessed them as Leaders, Experts, Facilitators and Core Providers.
“This year, key forces driving the M-Files Leader designation were strong technology, user-centric functionality and robust usability,” said Barbara Peck, analyst for Nucleus Research. With its vision of a metadata-driven, repository neutral and AI-powered platform, M-Files offers distinction in the marketplace. New innovations such as M-Files Smart Search, an intelligent cloud service for multi-repository search available later this year, demonstrate a visionary roadmap for the company. Nucleus expects that M-Files, with its core strengths of functionality and usability, will continue to set the standards for content management in the near future.”
As a leader, M-Files was acknowledged by Nucleus Research for its user-centric roadmap for the future and continued heavy R&D investment for performance improvement, platform development, and vertical solutions. The value matrix also affirmed the uniqueness of the M-Files solution which offers the same licensure for on-premises and cloud deployments, eliminating financial obstacles when transitioning to the cloud.
Furthermore, Nucleus Research recognised M-Files for prioritising data security, with robust features such as access control and permissions, automated audit trails, federated authentication, data encryption in transit and at rest, intrusion detection and data loss prevention.
“At M-Files, we’ve pioneered a new approach to ECM called Intelligent Information Management and it has clearly cemented our leadership positioning in this sector,” said Greg Milliken, senior vice president of marketing at M-Files. “Driven by metadata, documents are automatically indexed and organised by type to establish relevance and context when searching for information in M-Files or other repositories and business systems. Our Intelligent Metadata Layer that brings all disconnected silos together, along with AI-powered content analysis, which provides ‘content in context,’ deliver new, heighted levels of usability and functionality that offer key differentiation.”
