2012 Merger and Acquisition Roundup


Technology services and solutions can change hands quickly. As the vast amount of information organizations seek to store, access and collaborate on increases, content management has become especially prone to consolidation.

What's more, traditional content management is expanding into the realm of social media, mobile and cloud computing, making partnerships almost inevitable.  

Sometimes lost in the shuffle are the clients themselves. While mergers and acquisitions have been known to benefit enterprise users, other times they lose out.

It was a big year for M&A, with some of content management's biggest names, such as EMC, Salseforce.com and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) making buys. For many of this year's partnerships, it's still unclear how users will fare. This special report provides a recap of the mergers and acquisitions we covered this year.
