Enterprise Content Management (ECM)

Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is a technology collaboration solution designed to manage, store and organise business documents in real-time, allowing organisations to streamline business processes and make day-to-day operations more efficient.
Enterprise Content Management adds a timeline for each content item and potentially enforces processes for its creation, approval and distribution. As an umbrella term, ECM covers document and web content management, search, collaboration, records management, digital asset management (DAM), workflow management, and capture and scanning.

Enterprise content management, a form of Content Management System (CMS), combines the capture, search and networking of documents with digital archiving, document management and workflow.
