The OU’s interim project manager for enterprise content management, Jed Cawthorne, explained that the use of separate systems for handling digitally produced educational material was the cause of the university’s overloaded IT resources. To resolve this problem, it was decided a single university-wide document and digital asset management system was needed.

According to the article, Mr Cawthorne sees the decision to look for a single, consolidated system as a university-wide requirement.
