We believe M-Files inclusion in Forrester's 2013 ECM Wave further reinforces that we're a recognized player in the global enterprise content management market.

M-Files Corporation, the developer of M-Files cloud, on-premise and hybrid dynamic content management solutions that revolutionize ECM by managing information by what it is versus where it's stored, today announced that Forrester Research Inc. included the company in their September 2013 report titled "The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Content Management, Q3 2013."

According to Forrester Research, "M-Files offers an entirely fresh approach to [enterprise content management] ECM, with a metadata- and search-driven UI rather than the traditional folder and subfolder navigation scheme…. M-Files' metadata-driven architecture provides for flexible, folderless navigation, giving end users a versatile approach for grouping documents."

In addition, the analyst firm noted, "Wave newcomer M-Files provides one of the few true hybrid offerings. … M-Files metadata design has enabled it to lead the way with cloud-based computing, providing complete functionality and transparency between on-premises and cloud-based implementations. M-Files provides the ability to replicate data across distributed repositories and deployment types based on metadata."

"We believe M-Files inclusion in Forrester's 2013 ECM Wave further reinforces that we're a recognized player in the global enterprise content management market," said Greg Milliken, vice president of marketing at M-Files Corporation. "We're thrilled that Forrester has cited our metadata-driven architecture for enterprise content management, as well as our true hybrid cloud offering. These unique aspects of the M-Files solution provide small to large enterprises with an unprecedented level of flexibility and scalability to unlock the power of information to improve their business performance."

"Our dynamic content management approach based on metadata represents the next generation of enterprise content management, and separates us from traditional ECM solutions that force users to locate information by navigating through a complex and confusing maze of folders. M-Files dynamic content management solutions organize and process information by what it is and what it relates to, which enables users to access the precise information they need based on the context in which it is needed, such as by customer, project, date, status or author," added Mlliken.
