Enterprise content management (ECM) is used to create, store, distribute, discover, archive, and manage unstructured content (such as scanned documents, email, reports, medical images and office documents) and ultimately analyse usage to enable organizations to deliver relevant content to users where and when they need it.
The goal of ECM is the management of a company’s information asset in a formalised central repository, and making it accessible at the right time, place and format to support business processes.
Like many elements of business processes, ECM systems have been moving to the cloud for the usual reasons.
“Distributed work is here to stay and organisations must ensure they have the right technology, information and processes in place to deliver on employee and customer expectations,” said Mark Barrenechea, CEO & CTO at OpenText.
The launch of the OpenText Core Content as a service on Google Cloud will enable customers to deploy OpenText’s enterprise productivity suite on a global, trusted infrastructure.
The partnership between OpenText and Google Cloud will deliver new capabilities to users, utilising Google Cloud capabilities in secure software supply chains, SRE toolsets, and DevOps best practices for delivering a next-generation, cloud-native productivity platform, with low-latency and secure access for distributed teams.
Customers will be able to move from data to impact and create their information advantage, delivering innovative solutions that companies require for global collaboration, compliance, and business growth.
Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud adds with hybrid work here to stay, it’s critical to enable secure, governed, and easy access to information across large organisations.
