Enterprise content management (ECM) is a tricky category. Many search and Web content vendors feel they provide “ECM.” But in fact, true ECM—if it exists at all—demands a specific set of functionality, including secure access, version control, check-in/check-out and cross-platform access to multiple information repositories … and more. Here’s a sampling of the key players in the ECM market.
