What Is Enterprise Content Management

According to the Association for Information and Image Management, enterprise content management, or Intelligent Information Management, as it’s occasionally known, are the “strategies, methods, and tools used to create, capture, automate, deliver, secure, and analyze content and documents.” So, what on earth does that actually mean? In a nutshell, enterprise content management is any way that your organization chooses to work with, store, and handle data at an enterprise level, so everything from document storage and data gathering to document sharing and analysis. If it involves the life cycle of information, it’s part of content management.

Naturally, such a large scope encompasses a lot of components and can feel a little overwhelming. But taking the time to think about, assess, and improve your company’s enterprise content management can make the difference between business struggles and business success.

Why Does Enterprise Content Management Matter?

Imagine walking into an office where information is literally all over. Files are covering the floor, books on every imaginable topic are open on desks and chairs, and somewhere in the mess is a flash drive with even more information. In the office, a handful of employees are rummaging through the papers trying to find information, taking papers off to new areas, and even throwing new work into the air. Actually accomplishing anything in such an environment seems absurd, if not impossible. And yet, all too often we treat our digital workspaces in a similar way.

Just because information is saved somewhere, doesn’t mean it’s organized or easily accessible, especially when it’s needed by a large number of employees. Successful enterprise content management brings order to the confusion and puts into a place a logical and easy to follow processing system simplifying, streamlining, and improving everything from digital archiving to data workflow.
