Enterprise Content Management
Most critical corporate knowledge resides in the form of documents in silos, disparate repositories, and even on individual desktops where regular backups, security, versioning, or searching capabilities are non-existent or fairly limited. When employees leave, there are no organizational processes to recover, sort or categorize documents. Often, desktops are recycled or reformatted, causing hard-drives to lose critical and sometimes sensitive information forever.
The creation of large scale structured and non-structured repositories is critical to help an organization work more efficiently and establish a competitive advantage. An Enterprise Content Management strategy is developed in conjunction with Enterprise Architecture and Business Process Management, allowing an organization to centralize information sharing and migrate scattered data into one consolidated system, which is capable of providing actionable intelligence.
On the relational database front, every application maintains a separate database and their individual schemas differ due to a lack of enterprise-wide data dictionary. Even when organizations have centralized repositories, users tend to use their personal repositories (i.e. desktops) to store corporate knowledge.
