Addressing the ECM Challenge

[fa icon="calendar"] Jan 15, 2014 2:03:00 PM / by Shinydocs

Enterprise content management is being transformed. Organizations are struggling with their legacy systems in the face of a growing number of new systems of engagement. Mobile and social are becoming table stakes instead of differentiators in enterprise IT strategy. How an organization manages its information assets is as fundamental to competitive differentiation as how it handles its physical, human and financial assets.

Users are demanding access, anywhere, anytime, across all their devices. This means collaborating beyond the firewall. But IT still needs to ensure proper compliance and information integrity.

Since 2005 there have been over 600 MILLION records breached in the United States alone. In the meantime, content continues to grow exponentially in volume, velocity and variety.

This content is starting to pop up in silos beyond the reach of traditional frameworks. Consumer tools are infiltrating the workplace like trojan horses, creating information governance headaches for IT departments and adding to the list of distributed repositories. This content sprawl is making e-discovery a growing challenge, with important information languishing in obsolete team sites, buried email threads, unsanctioned cloud repositories and duplicated on various desktops. Wasn’t ECM going to manage this content?

There’s no doubt ECM improves organizational processes, but in the same AIIM survey over 67% of respondents believe that add-ons are still needed to enhance functionality and address the product shortcomings of legacy systems.
