Enterprise Content Management

Enterprise Content Management puts business content to work and allows organizations to realize new value. Collaborating in the cloud, managing records, mitigating risk, capturing documents, improving employee productivity—turning your content into Smarter Content Now. That’s ECM.

IBM Enterprise Content Management helps you transform the way you work by putting business content in motion, so you can capture, protect, activate, analyze and engage with content for greater insight and action. Manage your content where it is created. Securely collaborate on and share content where and when it is needed from any device. Protect it and make it easier to find. Implement enterprise archival and retrieval. Deploy it in the cloud, on-premise, or hybrid.
