     Enterprise Content Management is the organizing and storing of an organization's data, or content, in a formalized manner. It deals with a wide variety of content from the everyday business document to records and digital assets. The principles of Enterprise Content Management, which will be referred from here on as ECM, aims to manage content per the organization's needs and therefore is found on many different platforms through different mediums such as SaaS and clouding. ECM is not a closed-system solution nor a distinct product category, as it can be built in house or by a third party, but is more of a catch-all term, or an umbrella, covering such categories as document management, web content management, records management, and digital asset management. It often is associated, and often combined, with search, work-flow management, capture, scanning, and collaboration tools as these tend to be the best solution to access, input, and collaborate on content.

 

Cloud based ECM:

Organization looks at Cloud ECM as viable option compared to non-cloud based ECM. The important business driver is the high cost of implementation which changes that equation.  Consumerization of the tools available is creating more demands for the Cloud ECM product. With reduced time for implementation and significant cost reduction Cloud ECM will be more prevalent in future.
