Responding to “The Death of ECM”

In reading John Mancini’s blog titled Systems or Record, Engagement and… (Hint: It’s ultimately bigger than content services) it made me reflect on 2016. He talks about some of the big announcements that were made in that year. Yes, 2016 was quite a dramatic year in many ways outside of records management, but when you look at the landscape of enterprise content management platforms across the year, there is an obvious trend to follow.

Acquisitions, announcements, breakups and the death of the term ECM (per Gartner), mean that the future may well be more uncertain than ever. As John says in his blog post, “content management is morphing” and organizations are integrating content services into existing applications for a specific business purpose.

RecordPoint is seeing the shift from IT demanding the use of specific services, to the business bringing their own service (BYOS) and demanding that IT support it. It’s important that enterprises still have control over all their content in the multiple repositories that it can now live, without relying on cumbersome manual processes or interfering with business user’s daily tasks.

Because of this trend in the market RecordPoint has unveiled its new cloud-based records management offering that unifies the disparate content sources that business is demanding and enables cross-platform data governance.
