What is enterprise content management?

As COVID-19 redefines the work landscape, companies face new hurdles in maintaining productivity and keeping business processes moving forward.

Information management, access and distribution have become fragmented. Enterprise content management (ECM) facilitates the optimal management and flow of information across the enterprise. As a central set of practices and technologies, ECM ensures full lifecycle management, from capture through to archiving and disposition.

Traditional ECM software has evolved into content services. This new approach to content management allows organizations to realize even more value from content and data, while extending governance controls further into business processes.

The best content services platforms integrate with the lead applications at the heart of business processes to bridge siloes and incorporate previously isolated content and data into information flows and introduce compliance, security and privacy policies.
