What are content services?

Content services are capabilities for collecting, governing, managing and enriching enterprise content to be deployed efficiently across any cloud and within any application.

Why do applications need content?

To reinvent underperforming, high-friction business processes, enterprises are investing in digital transformation. This requires processes and applications to have access to and control over a wide range of content, including documents, images and audio files.

Content services are accessible in multiple ways, including mobile devices and desktops, and as discrete capabilities embedded in workflows or applications, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. This enables efficient, consistent and accurate content collaboration and decision-making across the organization.
