• Data has become a critical asset with companies investing significantly in analytics platforms to derive value from it. ECM therefore must re-emerge in the hearts and minds of CEOs and CXOs as a business solution that brings with it many advantages. Yet, this does not make ECM the silver armor to solve all challenges. Instead, there must be a drive inside the organization to actively make use of it. Like any tool, if implemented properly, ECM increases the productivity. As a platform, ECM is used to store large amount of organizational information in one place. This puts the pedestal of ECM in a high place that has the power to mint RoI through informed decision making. Hence, the need of an integrated ECM becomes prominent which has greater potential to integrate numerous systems and information. As a platform, ECM proffers multiple business and end users to have a single platform where information can be accessed from anywhere and anytime. ECM is no different to any system or solutions that are implemented at an organization. These factors hint towards the fact that ECM will remain a fundamental part of the digital transformation journey that every organization must embark on. The business circle, years of experience and expert’s views are some of the other pivotal aspects on which the decisions can be made to choose an apt ECM provider.
