It has been a very busy first half of 2017. Six months framed by the addition of the Documentum family in January and July’s annual gathering at OpenText™ Enterprise World, all peppered with numerous discussions with our community passionate about the changes reshaping the ECM industry.
The changes to Enterprise Content Management are very real, driven by a combination of technology advances, social influences, and new business use cases spurred by digital transformation. Considering them raises some pretty common questions across both the OpenText™ Documentum and Content Suite partner and customer base:
- What does the future of ECM look like?
- How can we make use of Automation, Analytics, and APIs?
- What are “Content Services?”
- How will these changes affect our existing infrastructure?
- What are the best approaches to succeeding in this new world?
Our ECM track keynote at Enterprise World was the perfect forum to tie all this together; answering these and other questions, showcasing some cutting-edge product demos, and hearing from a customer that’s using a progressive approach to realize Enterprise Content Management success. Whether you’re a practitioner or strategist, Documentum or Content Suite partner or customer, there’s something here to inform and inspire your ECM planning.
Thanks to a month’s worth of hindsight, I’ve come to view July’s Enterprise World event as both the end of a chapter and the start of an incredible journey for those of us who build and use Enterprise Content Management. Take some time to watch (or re-watch) our keynote and get up to speed. The future of ECM is all about Connecting Content to your Digital Business, and it’s happening right now.
