What is enterprise content management software?
As companies face new operational challenges brought on by COVID-19, enterprise content management (ECM) software is at the heart of organizational resilience.
Enterprise content management manages the lifecycle, distribution and use of information across the organization, from capture through to archiving and disposition.
Fueled by content services platforms and applications, the best ECM software allows organizations to integrate the enterprise processes that produce information with a central content management platform, improving information access, bridging isolated process siloes and ensuring governance is applied, wherever and however content is created.
