Open Source ECM Provider Nuxeo Eyes Global Expansion
Nuxeo, a provider of Open Source Enterprise Content Management, has announced that it has seen significant growth in the ECM market, like in North America. In 2009, Nuxeo doubled its revenue, launched several new products and features developed with the open source community.
“Our experience over the past 12 months in North America is that there is a large segment of the market that want the breadth and depth of larger content management systems from first generation ECM vendors such as EMC, IBM (News - Alert), Open Text and Oracle -- but today they require more modern, extensible architectures and lower overall costs,” said Eric Barroca, CEO of Nuxeo.
“Our appeal is a feature-rich ECM platform and packaged applications that address the architectural and functional needs of large enterprises, but are also easily deployable in a wide range of environments and extended and developed by customers themselves,” Barroca added.
Nuxeo has been able to triple its customer base in 2009. New global customers in 2009 include Orange, a telecommunications and network services major; Jeppesen, a division of Boeing (News - Alert); EllisDon; Serimax, an international full service welding company; Cengage Learning, provider of customized learning solutions for universities; and more.
With growing subscriber base, Nuxeo has seen a 285 percent growth in 2009 revenue compared to close of 2008. This validates the company’s strategy to deliver an open source ECM platform as a foundation for content applications.
Also, Galaxy Partner Program was launched with 50 partners, integrators and application partners and they have signed up for the Nuxeo Galaxy Partner program since its launch in July 2009. The Nuxeo Galaxy Program gives business and field experts the ability to package their knowledge and offer both horizontal and vertical applications for content management.
Nuxeo expanded its product in other ways too, such as, through contributions from its open source community. Nuxeo also grew with number of employees both in Paris, as well as the new office in Boston.
The company headed the creation of the vendor-neutral Apache Chemistry incubator project, to develop a generic, open source Java reference implementation of the Content Management Interoperability Services standard.
The releases of Nuxeo DAM and Nuxeo Studio are also planned for 2010. The Nuxeo Digital Asset Management offering, Nuxeo DAM, helps organizations catalogue, process, store, retrieve, and distribute rich media content, including images, audio, and video. Nuxeo Studio is the configuration and customization environment for Nuxeo EP, Nuxeo DM and Nuxeo DAM.
