Overview

Content-Centric Applications Overview

Managing collaborative work, unlike managing structured, high volume, repetitive activities, requires a high level of flexibility, both in terms of how end users go about their tasks and for the resources that manage the systems designed to accommodate. Purpose-built applications specific to the needs of discrete business functions and organizational groups create silo’d knowledge and a barrier to change, inhibiting innovation and organizational growth.

Content-Centric applications help solve issues involving complex, knowledge-based, and often long-running processes frequently requiring the review and approval of high-value content by multiple stakeholders in the organization. As content moves through a process, its value increases exponentially; users collaborate, often at high cost, and quick access to information is critical in driving strategic, high-risk decisions and moving the process through to completion. For these reasons, governance of these processes and the associated content is critical.

Content-Centric Applications delivered via OpenText ECM provide an environment for teams to work together more effectively, share information, capture knowledge, manage collaborative processes and projects, and resolve issues with speed and confidence. Content-Centric Applications break departmental and geographic barriers, and ensure information is delivered in a manner that enables all users to consume it in a way most suited to their specific role, where and how they work and via whichever device or application they spend their days.

With OpenText ECM creating a baseline for information governance, Content-Centric Applications rapidly adapt ECM to business needs and help classify information without end user intervention, enabling users to discover information, assured it’s the single version of the truth required to drive effective decision making.

Business Needs

Business Needs

Establish consistent, auditable and defensible Information Governance across your business

Enterprise information is growing at an exponential rate, where business applications are moving from the desktop to a variety of mobile devices and where information itself resides anywhere – on premise or in the cloud. The firewall is no longer the "boundary" of the business, making it harder than ever to enforce information management policies and ensure compliance.

Companies everywhere are realizing the value that an Information Governance initiative can have for their business—in more ways than one. With the amount of information growing at an exponential rate, new regulations and policies are constantly coming into effect, and this has increased both the need for, and value of, Enterprise Information Management.

Best practices and solutions that help meet compliance and risk mitigation mandates imposed by law, regulators, or internal quality standards are complemented by a keen focus on developing ways to capitalize on the kinds of productivity and efficiency gains that grow out of an asset-management approach to corporate information. Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions can help companies deliver a governance program to deal with corporate information, the consumers and creators of that information, in the context of real business processes.

Successful Information Governance programs demand that companies balance the needs and priorities to mitigate legal and business risk, take advantage of information to drive business value, and minimize the costs of managing information.

Dr. Thomas Kaspar, Head of Quality Managemnet bei Vifor Pharma

Customer Story

Barrick

"Every single Document that is required to build a mine is stored in Conetent Server. This includes CAD drawings, contracts, engineering data, production reports and as-built documents. If the operational team needs to refer bak to the original document, it is there in one repository as opposed to being scattered over multiple systems. That is definitely something that we are striving for, and part of the reason that we decided to implement Content Server globally."

Tony Santillan, a project manager within the Information Management and Technology group at Barrick
