Global Enterprise Content Management Market

Global Enterprise Content Management Market

An enterprise content management (ECM) solution is fast becoming an essential fixture at large enterprises around the globe. Frost & Sullivan defines ECM as a large-scale, multi-functional, cross-platform, content management system that is designed to address the structured and unstructured content management needs of organizations large and small. An ECM solution enables companies to store and manage data effectively, cut costs, enhance productivity, derive business intelligence, and create efficiencies across the enterprise.

Over the past few years, there has been an exponential growth in content across enterprises worldwide, particularly unstructured content in the form of audio, video, email, social media content, etc. As enterprises spread out geographically, there has been a growing emphasis on workflow collaboration and information sharing in order to maintain competitive edge. The role of an ECM solution in easing these critical enterprise problems has and will continue to drive solution sales. Several enterprises earlier resorted to building home-grown content management systems; however, over time, these systems have proven cumbersome to maintain, and such companies are now acquiring purpose-built, vendor-supported ECM solutions.
