Enterprise Content Management (ECM) as a category has been so much about the organization of content across the many data silos, but ECM has become yet another data silo, as identified by AIIM CEO John Mancini in his most recent CMSWire article Digital Chatter, Information Overload, and How to Get it Under Control
Our content strategy isn't as complicated at the moment but we still have issues with authorship
Someone, somewhere once said that ECM is about managing unstructured content...I have yet to come across an organization that wants to manage content for the sake of managing content (if I did I wouldn’t work with them)
It seems that it boils down to two types of software to manage slightly different file formats – database software and content management software
It seems I’m not the only one that doesn’t believe in the myth of unstructured content. Like Sasquatch, Santa Claus, and Ogopogo (CRTC mandated Canadian content), we’ve all heard about it, but have we really seen it?
When writing content, it is often better to be able to concentrate on the content rather than the look, and leave the latter to more experienced designers
