AUSTIN, Texas – March 24, 2023 – M-Files, a global leader in information management, today announced it has been named a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Content Platforms, Q1 2023 report. The technology platform received the highest scores possible in both metadata and commercial model categories in the 26-criteria evaluation of 13 selected content platform providers. Forrester stated in the report, “M-Files has a unique metadata-first point of view in the content platform market, distinguishing itself from the skeuomorphic folder-first approach of many competitors.”

Forrester also noted the following:
• “M-Files offers strong capabilities for metadata that can be used to automate processes and content governance in addition to being the core organizing principle for documents.”
• “It’s also solid in document management, content generation, and secure external sharing via its Hubshare module.”
• “Organizations that generate complex documents requiring a structured, metadata-centric management approach; want to share securely with external stakeholders; and need a well-balanced set of collaborative, transactional, and intelligent content services should consider M-Files.”

“We believe being named a Strong Performer in the Forrester Wave report is evidence of our visionary and differentiated approach to document management, which gives midsize and enterprise businesses a leading edge in the digital, work-from-anywhere world,” said Antti Nivala, founder and CEO, M-Files. “Our platform enables substantial ROI as businesses deliver better customer experiences and higher quality work with lower risk.” M-Files also views Forrester’s recognition as affirmation of its ability to provide the world’s leading knowledge-intensive businesses with a competitive advantage by ensuring knowledge flows quickly, effortlessly, and securely to the right audiences.

In its M-Files evaluation, Forrester asserted, “M-Files is well suited for complex use cases in markets with heavy document creation and integration and detailed search needs, such as business services, audit, and engineering.”
