What You Need to Know About ECM
- 13 March, 2012 00:50
We are awash in information. Our organizations house stupendous amounts of it , and even more of it is all around us, freely available to those who can find it. That's why IT leadership has been shifting its focus from deploying technology to extracting value from information. And it's why organizations intent on driving change and maximizing value are increasingly talking about enterprise content management (ECM).
So why all the fuss about ECM?
Partly, it's about the sheer volume of information and the value it represents. Researchers at the McKinsey Institute have come to the conclusion that companies with more than 1,000 employees store, on average, over 235TB of data -- more data than is contained in the U.S. Library of Congress. If organizations have library-like data stores, they might want to recall that a prime objective of libraries is to help people find information.
