Top 10 myths of enterprise content management

Get past the myths to create more value for your business

ECM Myths Cover

The world of business information has changed dramatically over the past few years. Today, unstructured content — email, web content, Microsoft Office files, digitized images of paper documents and rich media assets — represent a large and rapidly expanding share of companies’ information profiles. It also presents a major challenge to companies seeking to leverage the value of their enterprise information assets.

Companies expose themselves to increased costs, decreased productivity and unnecessary risk because they don’t have control over corporate information — or keep it beyond its useful life. Employees waste countless hours searching for information, and either don’t share or can’t share what they know. When employees leave the company, potentially decades of accumulated knowledge and experience may be lost forever.

This is the world of enterprise content management. Effective use of enterprise content management is about helping companies get better control over corporate information, increase business productivity and reduce risk. Yet for many organizations, enterprise content management continues to represent missed opportunities as organizations strive to address the information challenge.

That’s why we wrote this book. We want to dispel the myths surrounding enterprise content management to help companies like yours make informed decisions about how it can help your business be more successful.
