Enterprise content management (ECM) provides organizations with a platform to house unstructured content and deliver it in the proper format to multiple enterprise applications. This allows organizations to manage and use their content to facilitate business transactions, build content-rich business applications, integrate content services with business applications, and effectively control the life cycle of the content to meet compliance regulations. ECM helps to decrease costs, automate processes, improve transaction processing times, facilitate content distribution, minimize lost documents, and mitigate risk.

The goal of modern ECM deployments is to develop a unified ECM approach that provides the full array of content management functionality, including document and image management, web content management, digital asset management, and records and retention management, on one platform. The unified approach provides a greater ROI in a shorter time frame. Consolidating the overall architecture on a single code base, security model, and API eliminates “Band-Aid” integrations, leverages a common IT infrastructure, and minimizes application development and support costs, thus lowering costs; improving user experiences; and enabling simple upgrades, maintenance, and training.

The following white paper  provides foundational knowledge of content management systems and a vision for enterprise implementation of ECM solutions.
