The business perspective on Enterprise Content Management
Organizations face increasing pressure to improve efficiencies, optimize business processes, comply with the growing complexity of regulations and reduce costs. As a result, building an effective ECM business case entails not only evaluating the topics and data points addressed within this paper, but also understanding your organization’s specific challenges (i.e., too much paper, too many disparate systems and manual processes, an inability to locate information, etc…).
Without an effective strategy and system in place to effectively manage vital information assets, organizations are at risk for operational inefficiencies, information security breaches, data loss, compliance and audit challenges, legal issues and a host of other negative consequences. Effective ECM and document management solutions enable companies to meet these challenges head-on, while simultaneously mitigating risks, improving collaboration and decision making and delivering a strong ROI.
