The 2020 report included reviews of 17 vendors and placed them in quadrants based on how Nucleus Research assessed them as Leaders, Experts, Facilitators and Core Providers.

“This year, the M‑Files Leader designation was driven by new innovations that reaffirm the platform’s unique attributes and distinction in the marketplace,” said Barbara Peck, principal analyst, Nucleus Research. “With its metadata-based, system-neutral and AI-powered visionary platform, M‑Files continues to set the standard for content management. The latest M‑Files advancements further leverage metadata and artificial intelligence to extract and index data and identify business critical content. Additionally, new innovations are also rooted in the M‑Files open architecture that supports connectors to other systems and repositories.”

In the report, M‑Files was recognized for unveiling Smart Metadata, a tool that automatically learns to extract information from documents for better search and indexing; M‑Files Discovery, a new offering that identifies business-critical documents either in M‑Files or any connected external repository based on PII data extraction and document classification; and M‑Files Ground Link, a solution that allows a secure and highly reliable connection from M‑Files Cloud to customers’ on-premises data repositories.

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized as this year’s content management sector frontrunner, having achieved the highest levels of usability and functionality among all Leaders in the Nucleus Research Value Matrix report,” said Antti Nivala, founder and CEO, M‑Files. “We take great pride in the affirmation of our visionary approach and unique solution which offers the same license for on-premises and cloud deployments, eliminating financial obstacles and allowing companies to transition gradually to the cloud.”

As a leader, M‑Files was acknowledged by Nucleus Research for data security features, including access control and permissions, automated audit trails, federated authentication, file encryption in transit and at rest, intrusion detection, and data loss prevention.
