NEW YORK, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Intralinks® (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of content management and collaboration solutions, today announced that Gartner ranked the company the number one vendor in the team platforms and social software suites market*. Intralinks leads the category with 20.1 percent market share, based on worldwide revenues, over Microsoft, IBM and Jive Software in 2012. This is the seventh consecutive year that Gartner has recognized Intralinks as the leading technology provider for the team platforms and social software suites (formerly team collaboration) market.
"The traditional team collaboration vendors and the maturing enterprise social software vendors are evolving and intersecting to support information creation and sharing, team communication and coordination, communities and collective intelligence and collaborative decision making and informal interactions," according to Gartner.**
The report* notes that the overall team collaboration software market grew 13.6 percent in 2012, with Intralinks' global revenue being the highest in this market. Gartner publishes an annual worldwide market share report for all software markets. In connection with that report, Gartner analyzes the web conferencing, team platforms and social software suites market. The report takes into account Gartner's analysis of vendors, as well as the vendors' reported revenues.
"By ranking Intralinks as the leading enterprise collaboration company for the seventh consecutive year, Gartner continues to affirm our heritage and expertise," said Ron Hovsepian, CEO at Intralinks. "Intralinks sets the standard for trusted collaboration among networks of business professionals, and we're honored to be recognized by Gartner."
Intralinks continues to work with senior corporate IT and business leaders to identify needs for collaboration. With this in mind, the company recently introduced Intralinks VIA™, a breakthrough enterprise collaboration solution that gives professionals the freedom to work confidently beyond traditional corporate boundaries. The new technology offers users the opportunity to collaborate on documents, not just distribute them, while protecting that work wherever it goes. Having worked with 800 of the global Fortune 1000, Intralinks understands that today's professionals need to work across a network of increasingly complex external business communities. By using Intralinks VIA, business leaders can "UNshare" or revoke access to a file at any time with the click of a button, even after the file has been shared beyond-the-firewall.
*Gartner started looking at these specific markets because the continuing convergence of team collaboration and enterprise social software is driving new revenue opportunities as platform offerings became more prominent. Gartner 'Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2012,' March 2013, G00250533 is an annual report that provides detailed market share for infrastructure and application software for all the world's major regions. For the report, Gartner analyzes revenues for nearly 400 software vendors for 20 software markets and 104 software submarkets in 53 countries.
