M-Files: A visionary approach to Information Management

M-Files, Visionairy, delaware, information management
M-Files is a Finnish software company that was founded on the vision that there must be a simpler approach to enterprise content management than what traditional players have been preaching. In recent years, M-Files has been increasingly recognized by such top-tier technology analysts as Gartner and Forrester, and they have continued to rise through the traditional waves and quadrants. 

More than simply a tool , M-Files’ ECM solution is the embodiment of a vision in which information flows freely, metadata drives information characteristics, and users are relieved of the stress and burden of searching to find stored documents or tagging document metadata. With several hundred employees, M-Files has proven growth and staying power, while remaining agile enough to immediately respond to market and technology changes.

delaware is proud to share the vision of M-Files, and we recognize significant potential for companies searching for alternatives to enterprise platforms. M-Files’ departmental solutions allowinformationto link to business processes, but not drive them, as is done with typical ERP reliant organizations and  pragmatic small and medium enterprises looking for greatercontrol of their documentary flows.

“Improving business processes by combining both transactional and non-transactional systems to offer a new value proposition is where delaware wants to grow. That is exactly where M-Files’ core focus is.”

The 3 fundamentals of the M-Files Information Management approach

M-Files turns the tables on traditional approaches by intuitively managing information through addressing "what" it is, versus "where" it is stored. There is no more guessing as to where a document belongs - simply tag it and relate it to other important business objects such as customer, project, case, and so on, and it shows up dynamically wherever needed, with automatic permissions and workflow included.


Rather than requiringinformation to be stored in a single, monolithic repository, the M-Files open architecture supports connectors to other systems and repositories, including network file shares, email, file sharing services, CRM, ERP, legacy ECM systems and more. Information can be accessed and managed in place without disturbing other systems and processes.


M-Files leverages state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) to automate, simplify and assist the user in interacting with information, particularly as to how metadata is generated and applied so that information is correctly and intuitively classified and organized.
