IBM announced on Wednesday the availability of its new big data service – IBM Navigator on Cloud – which is designed to help businesses interact and secure enterprise content on any device. The latest version of Navigator is build on Softlayer, and is part of IBM’s larger plan to move all of its big data and analytics tools to the cloud.
“With today’s news, IBM is fulfilling an unmet need in the marketplace by providing a new service that combines enterprise grade security, governance and integration with mobile and web apps that are easy to interact with and use,” said Doug Hunt, general manager of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) at IBM, in a statement. “This new offering surpasses the promises of our competitors, and offers clients a simple and easy experience to learn, try, and buy it.”
The new service allows content to be synchronised and made available on any browser, desktop and mobile devices, ultimately giving teams better access to data. As eWeek describe, “a maintenance worker in the field can use a mobile device to pull up the latest schematics for a piece of equipment, take photos of a damaged part, make updates to a safety document based on a repair and synchronize this content back to the cloud making it instantly available to colleagues on desktops or mobile devices.”
According to market research firm IDC, the global ECM market grew by 8.6 percent in 2013 to $5.1 billion. Additionally, the IDC also ranked IBM No. 1 in worldwide market share for content management; the report showed that IBM had a 15.9 percent share of the market, growing more than three times as fast as its nearest competitor.
