"The Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market is experiencing rapid growth due to a “perfect storm” of events and technologies that make ECM invaluable. The influx of highly diverse content from a variety of sources, such as images, video, blogs, corporate records, email, web content and rich media, points to the urgent need for companies to invest in ECM in order to take control of all sources of content.
Companies are looking to ECM systems to create order where there is chaos, and given the vast amount of data and content they seek to analyze, maintain and store on a daily basis, ECM is providing organizations with the means for them to take control, creating workflows that allow their employees to be more effective and efficient while complying with regulatory rules and regulations.
This white paper cites analyst research groups, industry organizations and trusted media sources that address information management challenges such as big data, mobility and the cloud in order to provide insight on how organizations can leverage ECM for positive outcomes. Overall, ECM allows organizations to use new and existing sources of content to drive higher levels of efficiency and improve productivity. In addition, ECM secures organizations from potentially devastating data breaches and data losses and controls access to confidential information."
