Oracle Enterprise Content Management Solutions ROI Analysis

Enterprise content management (ECM) provides organizations with a platform to house unstructured content and deliver it in the proper format to multiple enterprise applications. With this technology, you can efficiently build content-rich business applications, reuse content, and integrate hundreds of content services with other business applications. ECM helps to decrease costs, automate processes, reduce resource bottlenecks, share content effectively, minimize the number of lost documents, and better manage risk.

Unified ECM provides the full array of content management functionality—including document and imaging management, Web content management, digital asset management, and records and retention management—on one platform. The unified approach yields much greater return on investment (ROI) in just a few years, especially if more than one application is used.

Oracle offers a truly unified ECM suite—a single platform that provides the full array of rich ECM functionality. The unified architecture of Oracle Universal Content Management ensures all ECM applications can be deployed on the same platform, and specific content management capabilities are interchangeable, extensible, and complementary to each other.
