Content chaos triggers adoption of ECM, study says

by | Oct 6, 2010

The difficulty of organizing content is driving organizations to adopt better ECM systems.A recent study by the Association of Information and Image Management revealed the difficulty of organizing content is driving organizations to adopt better ECM practices.

The survey was taken by 751 individuals in the AIIM community to understand future and current trends, as well as best practices, around ECM.

Nearly 60 percent of those surveyed said the main reason for implementing an ECM system was related to the overflow of content created by their organization and the inability to organize the content.

The report describes the respondents’ history with ECM projects. Twenty-five percent of those surveyed reported having an existing ECM system in place that they plan to continue using. Meanwhile, over 15 percent said they are planning to implement a system for the first time, and roughly the same percentage indicated they are using one or more legacy systems which they plan to replace.

ECM is a rapidly growing market, particularly in the mobile industry. With 16 percent of Americans expected to purchase smartphones in the third quarter, it is expected that ECM vendors will soon begin releasing more mobile apps designed with the same ECM capabilities as traditional solutions.
