The need to streamline ECM management and monitoring.
Large organizations often grapple with the complexities posed by multiple Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems. AIIM, the Association for Information and Image Management, latest state of the industry report indicates at least 4 separate content services platforms per organization. These content services systems, while catering to distinct departments or functions, often operate in silos, leading to fragmented data management, diverse workflows, and challenges in maintaining a cohesive overview of the organization’s content ecosystem.
These leads to several challenges, including:
1. Fragmented Data and Workflows:
Different ECM platforms can lead to disparate content storage approaches, document-driven business processes, increased use of RPA bots for ‘glue’, and varying governance methodologies, resulting in fragmented implementations across systems.
These variations can hinder seamless collaboration and inhibit a unified organizational strategy.
2. Lack of Centralized Oversight:
The absence of a centralized view impedes efficient monitoring and management, making it challenging to track performance, security, governance, and compliance across separate systems.
Management teams struggle with the absence of a consolidated dashboard with context for unified content services management and troubleshooting.
3. Operational Inefficiencies:
Managing multiple ECMs demands extensive implementation, delivery, and support resources, leading to increased operational costs and complexities.
Inconsistencies in user experiences and data accessibility create inefficiencies in day-to-day operations.
