Market supply overview

The market is marked by the presence of global players that cater to the needs of organizational buyers. On the other hand, there are plenty of regional players that cater to the specific needs of buyers in a geographic region. Suppliers are continually adding new functionalities to develop a competitive edge. They have taken significant efforts to integrate advanced technologies such as cloud-based deployment and big data analytics to lower costs, widen the scope, and make the category more lucrative for buyers.

Technological innovations

Many developers have been offering cloud-based solutions which ease pressure on the buyer’s end to invest in physical infrastructure. In the field of document management, it is difficult for buyers to filter and manage the data for meaningful analysis due to the proliferation of sources of data. By using big data analytics, buyers can go through large volumes of unstructured data and explore hidden and meaningful relationships between previously unexplored variables.

Regulations and compliance

Since document management software vendors deal with sensitive information relating to an organization, protection of IP is of paramount importance. Different laws exist in different countries to safeguard the IP of developers and protect them from piracy. For instance, the ACTA of 2011, which is a multinational treaty, was established to enforce international standards for the protection of IP rights.

Supplier costing

Engineering and development costs account for a large chunk of the total cost base. Employee costs account for nearly half of these costs. Maintenance costs, customer support costs, third-party software license fees, and stock-based compensation are other costs that contribute to these costs. It will become increasingly difficult for suppliers to access highly skilled labor at low costs from developing countries due to increasing competition and tightening of labor and immigration laws in major development centers such as the US, the UK, and Singapore.
