Thanks to digital transformation, organizations are being compelled to revisit their systems and processes and redefine how collaboration occurs among employees.
Blurring the definitions between “back office” and “front office,” ensuring value comes from content while maintain security and compliance is a balancing act that even the brightest of IT professionals are still trying to figure out.
One major problem that legacy enterprise content management systems face is that they are not yet made to accommodate the modern age business processes, which are more agile and mobile.
Truth is, enterprises are under immense pressure to deliver better products and services to their customers. To accomplish this, they must become more efficient by harnessing more collaborative content from the entire ecosystem. This ecosystem consists of various players including customers, suppliers, partners, and employees.
Due to changing mobile and cloud technologies, companies are undergoing a major paradigm shift. Here are 5 important factors that organizations should consider for creating an ECM strategy in a cloud environment:
#1 It is important to have a system that will operate well for any content form. This will be far more beneficial when compared to building a system in silos.
#2 Organizations must discover ways to extract the true value out of a cloud-based enterprise content management system.
#3 Organizations should not consider the cloud as an option to move their legacy systems, but more as an opportunity to rework their processes.
#4 With the cloud, you will never be stagnant. You must constantly innovate your processes and the systems around it to avoid any kind of inaction.
#5 Try to create small use cases while at the same time, ensuring that you have the big picture in mind when it comes to the cloud platform.
