IDC Innovators: Unstructured (File and Object) Content Management, 2019
IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue <$100 million that have demonstrated either a groundbreaking business model or an innovative new technology — or both. This IDC Innovators study profiles three notable vendors that are providing innovative content management tools: Igneous, Panzura, and Storage Made Easy (SME).
"Today organizations aim to extract value from unstructured content to increase revenue streams while effectively retaining it long term on the appropriate storage tier for regulation and data analytics," said Amita Potnis, research director, Infrastructure and Platforms for Software and Technology, IDC. "For this, organizations need tools from companies such as Panzura, Igneous, and Storage Made Easy, that build upon IDC's three Cs — connect content to context — and thereby drive three business outcomes: storage optimization, regulatory compliance, and data analytics."
