    HOPKINTON, Mass - October 30, 2012 -

    EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced that it has been positioned as a “Leader” by Gartner, Inc. in the 2012 “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management (ECM)” research report, demonstrating both the company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision for EMC® Documentum®.

    According to Gartner, “ECM continues to demonstrate value and growth with total software revenue increasing 11.1% annually to $4.3 billion in 2011.”  

    Gartner reports that “many enterprises are moving well beyond the basic uses of ECM (such as secure file storage in organized libraries), to tackle deeper business requirements that need strong process efficiency as well. This has led organizations to increasingly regard ECM as an environment for solutions that fit their business needs.” Gartner “sees more ECM vendors also offering a lightweight cloud-based environment to address emerging market needs” and notes that “as ECM begins to see increased usage on mobile devices, we expect to see it getting a generational make-over, moving further and further from its roots in networked back-office environments.”
