A giant leap for Open Source

As only Open Source Content Collaboration Platform ownCloud was newly recognized in Gartner’s IT report.

ownCloud has been newly recognized and is the only open-source vendor as one of two European vendors in Gartner’s brand-new Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms (CCP).

ownCloud powers 200,000 installations and has over 25 million users worldwide. Our main goal is the efficient combination of consumer-grade usability and flexibility with enterprise-grade security meeting full GDPR compliance. ownCloud enables users to access data no matter where it is stored or which device is used. The data can be stored in the cloud or reside on-premises. By giving organizations the visibility and control required to manage sensitive data while offering users the modern collaboration experience they demand, productivity and security are increased at the same time.

 

Community driven and focused on innovation

ownCloud lives from a strong community that is constantly improving the software. As a result, ownCloud offers countless solutions for collaborative file editing and integration into many common systems such as Windows Network Drives, S3, Microsoft SharePoint, FTP, oneDrive and many more.

File Classification reads this metadata and automatically distributes tags to the document. This makes it possible to automatically apply different policies to documents.

Open source offers undeniable advantages for a specific customer segment that wants to manage it´s IT infrastructure itself and prefers individual adaptability to license models.

The experience with more than 1.000 customers taught us that ownCloud integrates into any environment and can be adapted for nearly any use case and requirement that a customer has. In addition to that, we listen carefully to the feedback that we get from our customers and the community to improve ownCloud even further Holger Dyroff, COO of ownCloud

 

This customer-centric approach is highly regarded via the reviews that can be found on the “Gartner Peer Insights” (link) website, with an overall rating of 4.5 (out of 5) for ownCloud as of August 8, 2018. A senior development manager said in June 2018:

 

I am responsible for buying infrastructure (…) and this is the best vendor/company I have dealt with. Love the culture, people, and specially management. Love the dedication and response to the issue.

 

Following Gartner’s definition, content collaboration platforms have the potential to “transform how individuals and teams work. Inside or outside organizations, they add structure and insight when collaboration involves unstructured data…By 2022, 50% of midsize and large organizations in mature regional markets will use a content collaboration platform to implement document workflows and improve collaboration and productivity.”

We are very thankful for these great reviews and also very proud for being recognized by Gartner in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms, as we believe this shows the increasing footprint of ownCloud in the enterprise filesharing market.
