Impacts and Recommendations

  • As enterprise adoption of cloud platforms for business applications increases, more choices are emerging for content management, causing ECM program managers to assess the feasibility of cloud deployments
  • Organizations often see cloud deployments as a primary means of reducing their ECM TCO, meaning ECM leaders are missing out on opportunities to gain agility and modernize user experiences
  • Traditional ECM vendors are building out a range of cloud delivery options, compelling ECM program managers to pick the right combination of content service models to meet business needs
