NEXTPAGE NAMED 'COOL VENDOR' BY GARTNER
NextPage’s ‘in-place information governance’ helps organizations control and manage unstructured information for legal risk mitigation, cost efficiency, and regulatory compliance, no matter where the information is stored.
DRAPER, Utah – May 10, 2011 – NextPage announced today that it has been named a “Cool Vendor in Content Management” by leading IT analyst firm Gartner. According to Gartner’s report*, “Cool vendors in content management appeal to IT and business buyers by addressing their needs to help people relate to information better.” NextPage specializes in “in-place information governance” – a growing information technology segment that provides control and management of unstructured information within a company for legal risk mitigation, cost efficiency and regulatory compliance, no matter where the information to be managed may be stored.
“This recognition from Gartner is a significant indicator of just how critical in-place information governance is becoming for companies in the 21st century,” said Darren Lee, president and CEO of NextPage. “The fact that Gartner covers information governance is a milestone in the market’s development. NextPage is pleased to be an early leader to meet the growing information governance needs of today’s corporations and government agencies.”
NextPage products automate in-place information governance by enforcing policies on documents everywhere in an organization. NextPage classifies documents from the moment they are created and tracks all subsequent versions throughout their entire life cycle. Documents originate in many different ways, and NextPage’s patented “Digital Thread” technology tracks the relationships between copies and versions of documents as they morph and proliferate throughout an organization through users’ hard drives, email, shared drives, removable drives and document repositories such as Microsoft SharePoint. Unlike conventional centralized repositories or simple network drive storage, NextPage tracks and governs documents inside, outside and between these storage and collaboration repositories, including copies and revised versions.
NextPage, an innovator in “in-place” information governance solutions, provides control and management of unstructured information within a company, regardless of where information is stored. NextPage mitigates legal risk, increases document policy compliance and reduces the cost of information management as its “Digital Thread” technology tracks, manages and enables disposition of all copies and versions of documents no matter where they are located – hard drives, USBs, servers or email attachments.
