What does CMOD stand for?
What is CMOD? It stands for Content Manager OnDemand, IBM's flagship product in the Enterprise Report Management (ERM) segment of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software market. CMOD has consistently appeared in the upper-right-hand corner of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for archival systems since shortly after it's inception, largely because of it's rock-solid reliability, speed at ingesting data, data compression and de-duplication, and ability to easily scale to multi-petabyte sizes, and serve hundreds of thousands of users per day. For more information, about CMOD and its strengths, visit the 'Introduction' or IBM CMOD FAQ pages.
