Intralinks® Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of secure content collaboration solutions, today announced that Gartner has ranked the company the number one vendor in the collaboration and social software suites market* for the ninth consecutive year. Intralinks leads the category with 17.9 percent market share, over the closest competitors, based on worldwide revenues in 2014.
“Collaboration software has been available for more than a decade. Its usage has recently increased in part because of the arrival of social software, such as blogs, wikis, and social networks that support collaboration in a more open and flexible way. Even more recently, SaaS and cloud-based delivery, mobile device support, and an emphasis on improving the user experience have reduced the effort required to share information with others and to access it when needed. Correspondingly, this continues to drive new demand and increase usage in current implementations,” according to Gartner.**
The Gartner report* notes that the worldwide total software market revenue grew 14.3 percent in 2014, with Intralinks’ global revenue being the highest in the collaboration and social software suites 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.
