Copyright Clearance Center has acquired London-based Ixxus, a software professional services firm and provider of publishing solutions. With offices in the UK, US, Spain and Romania, Ixxus is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of CCC.

According to The Radicati Group, the enterprise content management (ECM) market will grow from $5.5 billion in 2014 to more than $9.4 billion in 2018 – an average annual growth of 15 per cent. Ixxus says its proposition goes beyond the traditional ECM offering, combining content modeling, semantic linking and advanced workflow capabilities to support the publishing process from end to end and deliver 'truly smart content.’

'Content is at the centre of every conversation we have with our customers,' said Tracey Armstrong, president and CEO of CCC.

'Ixxus and CCC have extensive experience, know-how, talent, and relationships in complementary areas. Ixxus’ content management expertise and services combined with CCC’s rights management expertise and license products will enable us to create powerful new offerings that our clients are asking for.'

Steve Odart, Founder and co-CEO, Ixxus, added: 'Ixxus is recognised as a leading authority on all things content. Our work with respected global publishers, including Wiley and Pearson, gives us unrivalled experience within the field. As part of CCC, we’re now able to address critical rights licensing challenges for current and future customers and develop solutions to support global business transformation.'
