Digital Content is here to stay!

 Gone are those days when theenterprise content was limited to just documents, excel sheets, SOPs and PDFs. Today, everything is digital and connected. Digital content is on the rise and has redefined the scope and scale of content created and distributed. ECM is no longer about securing valuable documents and making them available in real time. To be in line with the current technologies (i.e. cloud, mobile and analytics), ECM solutions need to have more intelligent features and be more intuitive to store, classify and simply keep pace with the sheer volume of digital content being churned out on a daily basis.

 Need for the Supernova version of ECM(Traditional to Digital Enterprise Mode)

  Gartner describes Enterprise Content Management (ECM) as a process which enables organizations to create, store, distribute, discover, archive and manage unstructured content (such as scanned documents, email, reports, medical images and office documents), and ultimately analyze usage to enable organizations to deliver relevant content to users through the most efficient and effective way.  

 Earlier, organizations were using ECM for a centralized, back-end, command-control focus for managing unstructured content. Legacy ECM systems were built in a time when users and content, both stayed in a tightly controlled IT environment. But today, with the new evolving paradigm of digital content on the horizon and the hottest technologies coming in, organizations need a more integrated approach that prioritizes content usability, processing and analysis in real time.

 According to the IDC, there will be a 50 times growth in digital content from 2010 to 2020. The question is how to manage this huge amount of data?

 We need the next versions of ECM solutions that must be able to drive productivity by enabling employees to collaborate and share content seamlessly with internal and external project members in a secure and traceable manner.

 BPM & ECM are two sides of the same coin

 Business processes and enterprise contentboth require and generate complex information flows and base access to the same document and files for effective collaboration and smooth decision-making.ECM and BPM on a unified platform allows for seamless integration of content and processes. It also ensures processes, tasks, documents and records are seamlessly connected to one another.

 Reimagine your Workplace!

 According to a market research report, published by MarketsandMarkets, the Enterprise Content Management Market size is expected to grow from USD 24.62 Billion in 2015 to USD 59.87 Billion by 2020, an estimated Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19.5%.

 When it comes to managing content, processes and cases, successful organizations are looking for solutions that support their organization and its employees in effectively managing their daily tasks and use cases. Moreover, wherever automation is possible, they want to use this to the advantage of the making the entire company more (cost) effective, all this independently of the type of content or process that it is based on. Ready-to-run solution template support horizontal or industry-specific use cases for an even better fit to individual needs.

 ECM and BPM on one platform also encourage information-led teamwork within the companies as well as between companies, their suppliers and customers, thus making employees more agile, innovative and efficient.
