Hummingbird buys RedDot

The consolidation continues. Hummingbird, with its strength in Document Management has announced the acquisition of European RedDot solutions. RedDot has its strength in Web Content Management. This gives Hummingbird and RedDot an opportunity to address the ECM space and cross sell to each other’s customers.

However, true benefits will only accrue if the two vendors actually integrate the products tightly. This means having a common user repository, common content repository and some kind of workflow interoperability. Otherwise, the two would just be like desparate products, with companies having to duplicate data and users, which defeats any advantages that could be got by a single ECM product.
