Preparing ECM platforms for the future - KMW Webcasts KMWorld Live
Good content management plays a pivotal role in an organization’s ability to manage input and output of information. It can make the difference between whether the enterprise gains value from its content or it is lost in the weeds.
KMWorld recently held a webinar featuring Chris McLaughlin, CMO, Nuxeo; Max Kelleher, COO, Generis Knowledge Management; and David Jones, vice president of marketing, AODocs, who discussed ways to maximize the value of content and move boldly into the future.
The old ways of managing content are not working, McLaughlin explained. Modern content requires support for digital form factors, the bridging of information silos, the ability to deliver insight and intelligence, the support of new content types, governance and security, cloud adoption acceleration, the ability to operate at extreme scale, and an easy way to build new apps.
Modern content services provide a multi-repository approach and singular platforms, are cloud-native, offer low-code tooling, use cloud consumption pricing, and can connect and consolidate existing data and content sources, according to McLaughlin.
The future of content management lies less in documents and more in data, said Kelleher. Leading content management systems will focus on passing data from multiple sources of truth in the enterprise into generated content for all purposes, including promotional materials, contracts, and highly regulated submission content.
Jones suggested moving away from legacy systems entirely. He offered up the three keys to removing legacy systems, which include changing the company mindset:
Rethink—Don’t just replace the legacy system.
Migrate—You will need to migrate content and metadata, as well as users and roles, and migrate or build new tools and integrations, so evaluate all the options.
Use—Take advantage of collaborative tools and processes, and think about how and where users want to access content and which applications they want to work with.
