Government Issue Brief: What’s the Value of Enterprise Content Management (ECM)?
It’s no secret that government entities are drowning in paperwork. During a time of ongoing fiscal crisis, it’s tempting to focus on getting the job done rather than developing innovative ways to do more with less. However, technology can help governments survive leaner times.
Enterprise content management (ECM) is a wise investment because it puts agencies back in control of their documents. Government agencies are increasingly turning to ECM software to control their documents and processes. ECM software helps government organizations deliver and share content and documents. It manages the information lifecycle from initial document creation or capture through management, archiving and preserving, to disposal. Content managed by ECM includes paper and scanned documents, electronic forms, emails, data streams or even screen shots.
