A recent article on CMS Wire discusses how digital transformation is changing how people are looking at enterprise content management (ECM), or ‘document management’ systems and the role they play in their technology and process ecosystem.
“Digital Transformation Shakes Up ECM Priorities,” authored by Lana Severson for CMS Wire, how digital transformation — the reimagining of business processes from the ground up using a digital first approach — is changing the strategy for enterprise content management (ECM).
According to Severson, companies focused on digital transformation need to “divorce themselves from the traditional content management headspace of focusing on the management of the content to focus on how to use information to get work done better, faster, cheaper.”
In other words, the shift has gone from managing content to managing processes through intelligent automation, fueled by both structured data and unstructured content. That’s exactly what digital transformation platforms like Artsyl’s docAlpha are designed to do - intelligently extract data from structured (ERP) and unstructured (ECM) sources to drive automation and fuel business intelligence.
From Managing Content to Optimizing Processes
To illustrate how digital transformation is changing the way we should think about managing and working with these documents, Severson looks at three content use cases and what digital transformation means for the strategy efforts of ECM program owners.
The three use cased include forms management, engineering drawings and claims/underwriting. We’d add vendor invoice automation and sales order automation to that list representing document-driven processes that represent low-risk, high-reward opportunities for digital transformation.
Digital transformation platforms like Artsyl’s docAlpha are designed to intelligently extract data from structured (ERP) and unstructured (ECM) sources to drive automation and fuel business intelligence for a wide variety of processes, data and content sources and supporting business systems.
