Dropbox Named a Leader in Gartners 2018 Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms

Dropbox today announced it has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018
Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms.

Dropbox powers one of the world’s largest, most connected platforms for
content based collaboration. It helps more than 500 million registered
users and over 300,000 Dropbox Business customers, including 56 percent
of the Fortune 500, work better together.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors within a particular market
segment based on their completeness of vision and their ability to
execute. According to the Gartner
report, “Content collaboration platforms can transform how
individuals and teams work. Inside or outside organizations, they add
structure and insight when collaboration involves unstructured data.”
The report further states, “By 2022, 50% of midsize and large
organizations in mature regional markets will use a content
collaboration platform to implement document workflows and improve
collaboration and productivity.”

“We believe being recognized as a Leader in Content Collaboration
Platforms is a testament to the transformative work we are doing to help
teams and individuals create, collaborate on, and share content around
the world,” said Quentin Clark, Dropbox. “We’ve recently announced
several partnerships that support broader collaboration across best in
class technology platforms, including Adobe, Google, and Salesforce.
We’ve also introduced Dropbox Showcase, templates for Paper, and mobile
updates, all geared towards helping users collaborate more seamlessly.”

Dropbox was reviewed by end users in the Content Collaboration Platforms
(formerly EFSS) market on Gartner
Peer Insights. A sales and marketing professional in the
manufacturing industry said
in June 2018, “Dropbox Business makes collaboration much simpler
with many users…Provides us with superior functionality and
business-grade security.” An analyst in the finance industry said
in June 2018, “Best invention since sliced bread. Thank god for
Dropbox. Universal and easy to use.” A senior AR specialist in the
services industry said
in February 2018, “We love Dropbox! It is used company-wide at my
corporation. Would highly recommend it to anyone. This product has
driven innovation and it is also extremely easy to use and has a very
clean UI.” A COO in the services industry said
in January 2018, “Dropbox has been a great solution. It has
dramatically improved our processes and allowed us to share files
seamlessly.”

Dropbox allows individuals, teams, and organizations to collaborate more
effectively. By breaking down silos, the platform makes it easier to
capture ideas, get feedback and iterate together. Dropbox connects the
creation, collaboration, and distribution of content to reduce the
work-about-work that slows teams down.
