Worldwide Dynamic Enterprise Publishing Software Market to Experience Rapid Growth and Exceed $1 Billion in 2009, IDC Reveals

FRAMINGHAM, MA – MARCH 31, 2005 – According to a newly released IDC study, the worldwide dynamic enterprise publishing software market will experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.9% through 2009 and surpass $1 billion in annual revenue. IDC believes dynamic enterprise publishing represents the next generation of enterprise document production and publication.

"Dynamic enterprise publishing has originated out of the demand to more efficiently produce essential, customized business documents and publications that address specific audiences at specific points in business processes," said Joshua Duhl, director for IDC's Content Technologies Research. "Vendors in this emerging market can take advantage of existing technologies to address the growing enterprise need to improve communication through the efficient, on-demand generation of customized documents."

Dynamic enterprise publishing software is currently an emerging market with approximately 30 vendors. While the substantial size of the market opportunity allows for minimal direct competition among these vendors, the high amount of variation in types of documents and degree of customization creates the potential for a great deal of competitive differentiation.

Duhl adds, "The keys to success for dynamic enterprise publishing vendors during this period of rapid growth will be a flexible underlying technology platform and the ability to rapidly develop solution packages targeted at specific segments."
