Enterprise Content Management
There is little doubt that content remains king in the enterprise. However, the types of content and the places that content needs to travel to enable business processes have changed dramatically. This is due mainly to the explosion of mobile and cloud technologies and the fact that supply chains now extend across the firewall, across organisations and even across continents.
The goals of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) are reasonably simple:
• Automate formerly paper-based processes
• Improve operational efficiency via automation and version control
• Ensure consistency and integrity of outbound content and communication
• Enable data integrity, records management and compliance
• Maintain control of company intellectual property (IP)
• Collaborate securely with colleagues, to gain more organisational productivity
However, if the modern enterprise cannot be defined by a firewall, then a modern approach to ECM must not be bound by the limits of an IT infrastructure. Content, business processes and collaboration must be free to travel anywhere it needs to, to get the job done efficiently, but in a manner where it can still be harnessed and controlled to meet the productivity, efficiency, security and compliance needs of the enterprise.
A modern ECM solution needs to contemplate both the traditional ECM use cases like document management, records management, workflow and collaboration, and the new, cloud and mobile use cases like simple file sharing, mobile content access and sync. And it needs to keep everything and everyone secure, no matter where uses or content resides.
