What is Enterprise Content Management?
The Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) defines Enterprise Content Management (ECM) as the strategies, methods and tools used to capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver content and documents related to organizational processes.
The four main content areas that an ECM system focuses on are Create/Capture, Manage, Deliver, and Archive & Dispose. Capture deals with the process of moving content to a digital form, allowing the enhancement of image quality, identification of document types, extraction of data, and validation of indexed data against back-end applications.
The manage facet of an ECM system provides search capabilities, security and access controls, records management and retention policies, workflow and business processes, collaboration, and analytics.
