Rethinking Content Management for the Digital Enterprise

Accelerate Productivity and Digital Transformation with Enterprise Content Management

The Digital Enterprise must successfully meet the growing demands of the digital economy—and Enterprise Content Management (ECM) transformation has become a must, changing the definition and role of ECM in the enterprise.

In the past, ECM had an image problem, due to unintuitive interactions that turned ECM systems into virtual filing cabinets. Little thought was given to using information to drive collaboration, productivity, and service.

Enterprises still struggle to manage and extract value from a deluge of data and information across multiple sources—and the pressures of litigation, regulatory risks, and increasing requirements are growing in lock-step with that information.

ECM should no longer be considered a one-way destination where content is relegated for long-term storage. The new generation of OpenText ECM solutions is dynamic and fully integrated, whether it is used on premises, in the cloud, or as a hybrid to facilitate a more secure information exchange. Systems and individuals across the enterprise are empowered with:

  • Personal Productivity: The new generation of digital workers have the social and collaborative tools to work the way they want to and are used to working, enhancing personal productivity.
  • Process Productivity: Integrating the lead applications where work actually takes place improves processes of sharing information, and enhancing insight and efficiency.
  • Control: The Digital Enterprise gains transparent, automated, enterprise-wide information governance for both structured and unstructured information, such as documents, content, and data.
This SlideShare on Evolving ECM as the Foundation for Digital Transformation provides a concise look at the topic.
