IBM announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned IBM in the Leaders Quadrant of its new Magic Quadrant for Information Access Technology*.
Information access technology includes enterprise search software, as well as other software used for content classification, content analytics, categorization, fact and entity extraction, and taxonomy creation and management that make it easier for people to find and use information buried within content and across organizations.
Positions in the Quadrant is based on the combination of its product capabilities, market performance, customer experience and overall vision, according to Gartner.
“IBM's search and content discovery portfolio is helping enterprise customers do more than gather simple search results. Our technology enables them to use information to solve complex business problems by combining advanced analytics, content classification and search capabilities with software, hardware and services," said Ken Bisconti, vice president strategy, IBM Enterprise Content Management Software. "We're pleased that Gartner has placed us in the Leaders Quadrant, which we believe is recognition of IBM's ability to deliver comprehensive information access capabilities to customers via a broad spectrum of offerings built upon more than 10 years of research and development and work with customers worldwide.”
IBM’s portfolio of enterprise search and content discovery software supports the company’s global Information on Demand initiative which is helping clients of all sizes overcome barriers to using information as a strategic asset. IBM’s offerings extend from scaleable, highly secure OmniFind enterprise search, information classification, extraction and analysis software, to the no-cost IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition offering, an enterprise search product developed to eliminate financial and technology barriers to entry-level file and intranet enterprise search.
With its comprehensive approach to enabling enterprise search and content discovery, IBM is delivering new levels of business insight through advanced secure semantic search and rich content mining and visualization. IBM’s software offerings are enabling organizations to improve access to information, gain new business insight, and create new opportunities for the use of information no matter where it is found. The software is based on the Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA) standard to provide an open architecture for connecting applications for entity extraction and text analytics.

Simple keyword or text search is not always effective for quickly finding what you need. IBM® has gone beyond keywords by inventing a fast and accurate semantic search system for personal e-mail.
IBM OmniFind Personal E-mail Search enables semantic searching by extracting and organizing concepts and relationships from personal e-mail. Any business e-mail user who must search in order to accomplish a business purpose will find this tool invaluable. Customization of semantic concepts and the ability to share these concepts with colleagues make this tool especially useful for large enterprise customers.
IBM OmniFind Personal E-mail Search is easy to install and configure and automatically adjusts to desktop load. Users simply type keywords to express their queries. The tool intelligently matches these queries against pre-defined concepts (such as persons, phone numbers, addresses, or schedules) and relationships amongst such concepts (such as a person's phone number or address). In ambiguous situations, the intelligent search engine will interact with the user in order to determine the user's true intention.
Users can create new concepts using the tagger utility and thereby customize their semantic search. Both system tags and user-defined tags are searched during run time.
The tagger utility also enables users to easily share taggers, thereby promoting community search efficiency and cooperation while keeping their e-mail private.

Some analysts estimate that the volume of “unstructured” content – email, presentations, contracts, forms, etc. – will nearly double on a year-to-year basis. If you're having trouble locating information now, what will it be like going forward? IBM Classification Module not only accurately and automatically organizes your information so that it is more readily accessible, but also helps reduce your risk and costs.
This Illustrated demo shows how the IBM Classification Module automatically catalogues your information so that it can be found easily and logically. It can classify new information as it is brought in, or it can sort through content that is already under management.

IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced that Gartner, Inc., has positioned IBM in the Leaders Quadrant of its new Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management.*
According to a recent Gartner, Inc., Dataquest report IBM-File Net is the largest Enterprise Content Management (ECM) vendor based on overall software revenue for 2006.** IBM believes its market footprint, along with its product sets and resources, positions the company well for large enterprise-wide deployments.
“We believe this evaluation from Gartner demonstrates that IBM’s investment in a comprehensive portfolio of enterprise content management software and solutions has generated business growth and leadership,” said Lee Roberts, general manager, IBM Enterprise Content Management. “Our commitment to addressing a broad set of content management challenges, along with our collaboration with key business partners, is delivering unique capabilities that support our customers’ industry-specific needs.”
According to the Gartner analysis, “leaders have the highest combined scores for their ability to execute and completeness of vision. They're currently doing well and are prepared for the future with a clearly articulated vision. In the context of content management, leaders have strong channel partners, a presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technology or vertical market. Greater emphasis was given this year to suite integration, for example, a common user interface, common code base and single repository; demonstrated enterprise deployments; integration with other business applications and content repositories; and a vertical process/solutions focus.”
IBM’s enterprise content management software supports the company’s global Information on Demand initiative which provides customers with data exactly when and how they need it to improve their business processes, quickly respond to market needs and rapidly identify new business opportunities.

IBM FileNet P8 is used by over 4300 leading organizations worldwide in mission-critical applications such as claims processing, loan origination, and customer service. Application availability is mandatory to meet the service level agreements required by the lines of business.

The only way to deliver Service Levels without raising operating costs is to implement tools to automate those activities in system administration and operating, which are necessary to avoid downtime. IBM FileNet System Monitor automates the monitoring of the entire IBM FileNet environment.

Enterprise applications typically provide the infrastructure to secure the resources that they make available. Often times this is accomplished using an access control list-based security model. In enterprise level applications, it is often convenient and desirable to have the capability to make a change to one resource and have that change be automatically propagated to all related resources.
Traditional software applications have implemented this kind of security “inheritance” by copying elements of the modified access control list to all of the resources which inherit from it. However, this approach has performance and reliability issues when the number of inheriting objects becomes large, as is often the case in an enterprise application. The dynamic security inheritance model introduced in IBM FileNet P8 4.0.1 addresses these scaling issues, allowing security inheritance to millions of resources in a robust and performant manner.

IBM introduced new industry workshops, expanded solution centers and business partner resources to help clients plan and execute enterprise-wide information on demand strategies that will allow them to use information to innovate, compete and grow their businesses.
The new offerings are derived from a powerful combination of market leadership, technical know-how and industry expertise developed in hundreds of software, IT services and consulting engagements. They are designed to help clients address industry-specific business needs such as customer loyalty, globalization, mergers and acquisitions, cost efficiency and risk and compliance, and to accelerate their business optimization efforts.
With rising demand for information management projects for business intelligence, data warehousing, information integration, master data management and enterprise content management, organizations are increasingly relying upon IBM Business Partners to help them get more value out of their business information. Last fall, IBM responded to this need with the Information on Demand Specialty Program, which combined with the Information on Demand Community Program now consists of more than 2,200 partner members.

From traditional banking and investment services to relationship lending and new credit vehicles, success in banking and financial markets demands continuous evolution and innovation. In prior years, great emphasis was placed on back office automation and the Internet as the future of financial services. Today, customers are demanding more personalized service, and financial institutions must find ways to reconnect with customers and improve their experience to deepen relationships and drive organic growth.
With increased global competition, financial institutions are looking for ways to gain greater wallet share, increase barriers to switching providers and reward loyalty. But, with existing siloed infrastructure, many companies are finding cross-selling and up-selling efforts challenging as any inconsistencies in the service experience across channels and lines of business contribute to customer dissatisfaction and defection.
If improving the customer relationship and competitive market pressures were not enough, financial institutions around the globe continue to struggle to keep up with state, national and international regulatory requirements. From Basel II to anti-money laundering, MIFID and SEPA, not to mention ongoing compliance tasks related to Sarbanes Oxley, the Patriot and Secrecy Acts, banks and other financial services companies can expect no respite. They will continue to face everevolving risk and regulatory compliance requirements. Establishing an information infrastructure that can adjust to these changes is critical.
