ECM as we know it is dead.
Are you prepared for the new ECM landscape?

published November 2012

Traditional ECM is not adequate

If you’re still using legacy ECM platforms like Documentum, FileNet & OpenText, your ECM infrastructure cannot adequately adapt and scale to support the explosive and disruptive changes that mobile, social, cloud and rapid globalization bring to the ECM landscape.

Bolt-on products aren’t the answer

Traditional ECM technologies were architected in a time when users and content stayed behind the firewall, on servers and PCs. They don’t have ECM capabilities that adequately or scalably address next-generation ECM challenges – and no amount of acquisitions or bolt-on features will compensate for that lack in the core product.

Get ready for the new ECM: "ECM as a service"

Read this thought-provoking white paper, from our own CTO & Founder, John Newton, to learn how and why these technology and industry disruptors are forever changing the ECM landscape – and how you can get your organization prepared for the new, scalable "ECM as a service" model required to successfully manage and leverage content in this new era.
