Content is key to any digital business. Today, that means dealing with content which changes day by day, hour by hour, or minute by minute. Importantly today’s content is created by distributed teams around the world both inside and outside company firewalls. This requires one platform that works for all your content needs and enables collaboration and process across the extended enterprise.
Drawbacks of Legacy Platforms
Many legacy Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems just weren’t built in this way. They focussed on use within an organisation and on strict levels of control for different job functions rather than enabling a digital workplace for employees.
Research from Systemscope found that more than half of organisations which implemented ECM projects struggled with adoption by employees. Employees need secure file sharing, external and team collaboration and mobile and field productivity at a minimum. Otherwise they will fall-back on using email and online file sharing with implications for efficiency, security and data protection.
A cloud-based system can mitigate risk and regulatory exposure while driving down infrastructure costs. Finally such a move gives the organisation the foundations on which to power their digital transformation by reimagining organisational productivity and agility. As content takes on an ever more important role in the business so do the demands on your ECM solution. A cloud content management platform, makes it far easier to respond to changing business demands.
