SkySync named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Content Management for 2015


Portal Architects, Inc., the creators of SkySync, today announced that the company was named one of Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Content Management for 2015[1].

Each year, Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes research reports evaluating innovative vendors and their products and services. The 2015 report states that for organizations, “gaining access to documents or content that resides in myriad ECM sources, including those that have a hybrid environment both on-premises and in the cloud, is a tedious and complex task that is likely to be of increasing importance.”

Gartner also reported that by 2018, 50 percent of enterprises will be managing their content using a hybrid content architecture.

Portal Architects was one of five vendors recognized in the report.

“Obviously we are ecstatic about our Gartner recognition,” said Mark Brazeau, CEO and co-founder of Portal Architects. “SkySync’s ability to tightly integrate dissimilar storage platforms is unprecedented within the Enterprise Content Management sector. Hybrid storage is rapidly becoming a requirement for medium- to large-sized organizations. We believe our inclusion in the Cool Vendors report confirms SkySync is the leader in enabling hybrid storage paradigms.”

SkySync empowers organizations with unparalleled storage agility, enabling them to sync, migrate and copy files, folders, sites or entire file structures (along with associated metadata, permissions and other file properties) across diverse storage systems in just a few clicks.
