Is it time for Microsoft Dynamics ERP users to explore hybrid ECM?
As organizations continue to struggle with information overload, an increasing number of them are turning to enterprise content management (ECM) to help capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver content - structured and unstructured - and documents related to organizational processes.
Like most software solutions, ECM is now being deployed in the cloud - or, at least part of it is. Termed "hybrid ECMs," a growing number of the solutions include both traditional, licensed software options plus cloud-based alternatives that allow for 24/7 access from anywhere via the web.
IDC analyst Melissa Webster wrote recently that hybrid ECM isn't just a means to an end, but rather the "solution for the mixed deployment environments that will characterize IT for years to come."
