Hummingbird acknowledged as visionary

Hummingbird has been recognised by Gartner as "Visionary" in the Smart Enterprise Suite (SES) Magic Quadrant for 2003. Gartner's Magic Quadrant positions vendors in a particular market segment based on their ability to execute that vision.

According Gartner, a leading technology and advisory firm, "Visionaries" have a clear vision of market direction and are focused on preparing for that, but they can still improve in their service delivery.

Gartner first identified the emergence of a new category for enterprise software vendors called the smart enterprise suite (SES) in May 2002, predicting a single product offering bundling portal, collaborative and content management applications. According to the report, "the SES is becoming a highly significant evolutionary trend as these related markets mature and merge."

In evaluating the vendors, Gartner looked at strengths in integration across each of the software components, as well as market presence. When considering the Visionary Quadrant, Gartner weighed the degree to which the vendor has aligned with the concept of a suite as a primary element in its approach to the market, and the success realised so far by the suite.

"Our position in the SES Magic Quadrant is a confirmation of our strategy of delivering a robust document management foundation with an integrated suite of value-added SES components," said Andrew Pery the chief marketing officer and senior vice president of Hummingbird.
