Well, I came across this information first at George Dearing’s FileNet Blog. Thanks George for keeping an eye on FileNET and breaking the news for me.
I have been saying that FileNET was ripe for a takeover for the last year based on the continued consolidation of the ECM market and the lack of a strategy for dealing with Oracle and Microsoft pushing ECM into the infrastructure. FileNet claims that they are partnering with Microsoft and announced “FileNet is introducing broad support for Microsoft SharePoint Technologies” back in May during the AIIM conference.
Well, the have very little skin in the game since the software company, Vorsite to provides the integration between P8 and SharePoint.
I will have to start watching Jim’s Mad Money show to see what he thinks of some of the other ECM players in the market.
