‘Tis the season to be jolly.
It’s also the season to create lists of what was hot, trending, and otherwise notable in 2015.
I enjoy this time of year…not just for the holiday season…but also to take time to look back, reflect on accomplishments and opportunities for improvement, and set goals for the coming year.
Since we’re all about simplifying, streamlining, and accelerating processes for our customers here at MTS Software Solutions, we’ve decided to save you some time and effort by curating a list of 2015 Year-in-Reviews for you.

Gartner Magic Quadrant ECM 2015
Each year, Gartner Inc., the information technology research and advisory firm, publishes their Gartner Magic Quadrant report reflecting a culmination of research evaluating how well technology providers are executing their stated vision and how well they are performing against their peers. The report plots each competitor in graphical context in one of 4 quadrants: Leaders, Visionaries, Niche Players, and Challengers. By applying a well-established methodology and consistent evaluation criteria to each competitor, the Gartner Magic Quadrant is leveraged by technology decision-makers to make better informed purchasing decisions in over 150 different markets, including the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market.
