M-Files is a platinum sponsor of the event and will be featured at booth 104.

"The Gartner Portals, Content & Collaboration Summit highlights disruptive trends that are driving critical business requirements, one of which is the growing intersection between ECM and quality and compliance," said Greg Milliken, president of M-Files Inc. "The Gartner PCC summit provides a great opportunity for us to engage directly with customers and prospects to explore how M-Files can help their businesses solve the increasing challenges of organizing and managing their information and processes, especially with respect to compliance in quality-intensive environments and highly regulated industries."

M-Files continues to gain traction in the lucrative enterprise content management and document management space, which is illustrated by the company's 2012 revenue and user growth that highlights the rapid adoption of its solutions for improving business information management and compliance. M-Files revenue increased 44 percent in 2012, culminating in a six-year growth rate of 782 percent. In addition, M-Files was included by Gartner, Inc. in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management1.

SAS to Discuss M-Files Use Cases During the M-Files Solution Provider Session
On Tuesday, April 30th, M-Files president, Greg Milliken, will present a solution provider session on "Going Folderless with Metadata for a Superior Approach to ECM." The discussion will address how most ECM systems on the market today still employ a folder paradigm that is over 30 years old, and how metadata is driving the next generation of ECM systems based on the ability to organize and process information based on what it is rather than where it is stored.

SAS, a leader in business analytics software and services and the largest independent vendor in the business intelligence market, is co-presenting in the M-Files solution provider session and will highlight how the company is leveraging M-Files within its operations in the Nordic region.

"The unique metadata-powered approach of M-Files organizes and manages information based on what it is, rather than where it is stored, making it fundamentally different from traditional folder-based approaches to ECM," added Milliken. "We're excited about the opportunity to present a real-world use case that shows how SAS has leveraged this approach to more effectively manage their customer contracts and agreements with M-Files. Especially exciting is how SAS as the leader in business analytics has been able to extract tremendous value from the metadata-powered architecture of M-Files by tapping into metadata derived directly from analytics. Given the increasing strategic importance of business analytics, this 'analytics=metadata' use case opens up a huge untapped opportunity for businesses in a wide variety of industries."
