Enterprise Information Management
It's typical for the enterprise to be and feel disconnected. Business content and information is spread across multiple systems in independent silos. This disconnection makes it almost impossible for employees to find what they need when they need it. The only way to solve this problem is by leveraging a modern, connected Enterprise Information Management (EIM) system. Upgrading to a modern ECM platform is a much easier process than you might think since everyone can continue to work exactly how they want to.
Choosing an ECM system is usually a top down decision that requires organizational change and managing change is difficult. Unfortunately, resistance to change prevents innovation that often starts in smaller pockets within the business.
What if it was possible to enable departments and small workgroups to enrich and repurpose information to support new initiatives for specific business needs, such as in legal, accounting and human resources, without disrupting existing systems and processes? Now it is.
ECM systems have traditionally been focused on managing documents and other content: contracts, proposals, invoices and so on, often referred to as “unstructured content.” But other core business systems (CRM, ERP, HR, etc.) also contain information vital to managing documents and other content. The new approach to ECM embraces these core systems to create a unified, 360° view of information, so no matter what system you're using, you always find what you need.
