When Microsoft launched SharePoint, it was made for simply sharing documents within departments. Today, many companies are trying to use it as their primary content management solution—their “system of record”—even though it was never designed for this.
In a recent ECM market study we see that:
93% of respondents use SharePoint in some manner within their organization
More than 75% still have a “strong commitment” to it
Only 11% of these organizations see their deployment as a success
Why is this?
The leading concern is around the lack of true information governance capabilities within SharePoint. This makes it challenging to address compliance and security concerns. Additionally, significant issues remain around utilizing SharePoint for workflow/business processes or case management tasks. Finally, confusion around how to leverage SharePoint Online and Office 365—whether as a standalone or hybrid model—has further contributed to the “content chaos” around SharePoint.
In order to be successful, you need an organizational content management strategy that provides IT with security and compliance, while giving end users an intuitive experience for increased adoption. Ideally, your ECM should include:
SharePoint integration and synchronization
Automated records management
Universal Content Security—from SharePoint to Alfresco and external collaboration
Document processing including case management and capture
Integration with Office/Email 365
