Intralinks Ranked Number One by Gartner in the Enterprise Collaboration and Social Software Suites Market Share Worldwide for the 8th Straight Year

Date: 04/10/2014

Intralinks® Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions, today announced that Gartner has ranked the company the number one vendor in the team platforms and social software suites market* for the eighth consecutive year. Intralinks leads the category with 18.8 percent market share, over the closest competitors, based on worldwide revenues in 2013.

“An increasing number of organizations are demanding software functionality as a service or via cloud-based services rather than via on-premises. Cloud-based revenue gains have become prevalent since 2012, and double-digit cloud-based revenue growth is expected through 2017. The continuing convergence of teaming, collaboration and enterprise social software will drive new revenue opportunities as suite/platform offerings become more prominent,” according to Gartner.**

The report* notes that the overall team collaboration software market grew 15.7 percent in 2013, with Intralinks’ global revenue being the highest in this 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.

“It is an honor for Intralinks to be recognized by Gartner as the leader in enterprise collaboration for the eighth consecutive year,” said Ron Hovsepian, CEO at Intralinks. “We feel this is a great affirmation of Intralinks VIA® and our strategy of providing customers with collaboration solutions that address security and data privacy concerns, while also being easy-to-use and manage.”
