Date: Monday , November 03, 2008
When you hear about Enterprise Content Management Systems, CIGNEX may not be the first thing that comes to mind. But recently the company is making it clear that they play a critical role in the Enterprise Content Management System ecosystem. The company has successfully completed over 690 successful engagements by developing a powerful, flexible approach to building and deploying Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions based on open source. “Today organizations are looking for solid, well-integrated tools, instead of something overly flashy” says Paul Anthony, Chief Executive Officer.
CIGNEX was founded in Santa Clara, CA in 2000 by Paul Anthony and has since then developed deep expertise in all aspects of open source- based content management, and offer a proven solutions implementation methodology. CIGNEX has been at the forefront of open source application development for over six years. With a proven track record, of over 60 successful client engagements, technical expertise in all major open source application platforms, and deep relationships within the open source community, the company is uniquely positioned to create optimized, cost-effective ECM solutions for businesses and government agencies.
CIGNEX takes a business strategy approach to every engagement, starting with gaining a deep understanding of the underlying business requirements and challenges, and devising the best course of action. “We firmly believe in all of the benefits afforded by open source technology - freedom of choice, complete visibility into all aspects of the application, and dedication to consistently improving our customer’s experience” says Anthony.
Three things that stand out with CIGNEX - Clientele that includes Activision, Comcast, Electronic Arts, Sesame Street, Medco, Star TV; Global Operations with 4 offices in US, and offices in India, Singapore and UK; and Author of 3 books on Alfresco, Liferay and Plone. CIGNEX has invested both money and effort in building a strong enterprise content management offering, and it really promises to be interesting to see how this investment pays off in a very competitive marketplace.
