ECM Analysis & Strategy
Electronic Document Management Analysis & Strategy (EDAS)
Electronic Archiving is only one of the manifold terms used in the field of Content Management. The term is multifaceted and comprises Web Content, Digital Asset Management and of course ECM (Enterprise Content Management).
The development of a strategy to store and manage content (=archive) can only be achieved in collaboration with exisiting workplace administrative processes. To ensure a “user benefit” is derived from supplementary functions, the strategy must consider the availability of the relevant content at the appropriate time in the right place.
Therefore, developing a company-wide archiving strategy should go hand-in-hand with the analysis of more efficient and automated processes.
Added value results from combining document management with collaboration.
The challenge lies in the harmonisation of your objectives and their technical feasibility. This difficult task raises critical questions:
- Why is new strategic and operational enterprise content management required?
- What technical solutions are currently available on the market and are they adequate for solving the underlying problem?
- How can the strategic, operational and functional requirements be correctly implemented?
- What means shall be employed to meet the defined goals and functional requirements?
For this purpose IMTF developed the following approach:
EDAS (Electronic Document Management Analysis & Strategy)
The goal of EDAS is to identify possible strategies to automate processes, after considering all the customer’s underlying factors. EDAS analyses where ECM technologies may be deployed most cost effectively to integrate with administrative processes.
