As the ECM space matures, it is becoming increasingly important to track major players’ financial performance – something along the lines of a sector index of a stock exchange.
My colleague, Kashyap Kompella has coined a tongue-in-cheek term for such an index. It’s called CoMa index and includes Filenet, OpenText, Vignette, Hummingbird, Stellent, and Interwoven for a start. In his post, Kashyap describes this in detail. An interesting aspect of this is how CoMa index relates to NASDAQ. One of the conclusions is:
Both the indices move in the same general direction, exhibiting the same trend – showing that the same factors affecting the overall technology sector are affecting the CM companies as well.
