Enterprise Content Management – Strength is born of order
Enterprise Content Management (ECM) accelerates processes and improves data access. Less paper consumption also decreases costs and is more environmentally friendly.
- ECM was rated as one of the top three important IT topics by 17% of respondents and as one of the top five important IT topics by 51% of respondents (d.velop study: ECM 2009).
- According to a current user survey conducted by Wurzburg-based Business Application Research Center (BARC), almost 40% of companies are using an ECM solution. Another 48% are currently in the selection process, meaning that they have recognized the need for ECM (March 2010).
- Some 71% of companies that are not yet using a corresponding solution hope to gain cost advantages (2006: 68%). A total of 57% of respondents are relying on improved process support (2006: 48%) (d.velop study: ECM 2009).
More than four trillion paper documents have been amassed at US companies alone and their number increases annually by 22% according to PriceWaterhouseCoopers. Information in papers stored in warehouses remains unused or is even lost. With ECM by T-Systems companies can consolidate their documents on a standard platform. The documents required are available to all authorized employees of the various departments in seconds with a mere press of the button.
Sustainable information management
T-Systems advises companies in their selection of suitable ECM solutions for the collection, forwarding, storage, revision, provision – and, if need be, destruction – of documents. Integration into the existing application landscape, application management and maintenance of the system landscape are also part of the service offer. Customers can also use SCM as a virtual “software as a service” solution. This saves on investment in hardware and software.
As an independent service provider, T-Systems works together with renowned ECM software providers. T-Systems also has its own innovative solution, the ImageMaster, which is currently being used by around 25 million end-users. The ImageMaster’s ProductSuite provides companies with a software kit to build their own individual ECM architecture.
