What is Microsoft ECM?
In Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, ECM provides an expanded subset of options, an expanded scope, and is more extensible than in previous versions. ECM features are available to everyone in the enterprise, are easy to use, and support a broad range of content from the formal and structured to the informal and unstructured. ECM features and functionality are also highly extensible and scalable.
Benefits and Insights
Why use Microsoft ECM?
Key differentiators & advantages of Microsoft ECM
- Managing Digital Assets in SharePoint
Digital asset management (DAM) includes functionality that supports the ingestion, annotation, storage, retrieval, and rendering of digital content, including audio, video, and images.
- Managing Documents in SharePoint
Document management (DM) includes functionality to create, store, and track documents, document sets, and other types of content. The feature area includes a content organizer, a template for a Document Center, and infrastructure required to support the creation of document sets. It also includes technology that you can use to navigate through collections of documents and filter based on metadata, and a way to locate documents based on metadata defaults.
- Managing Records and eDiscovery in SharePoint
Records management (RM) includes functionality used to identify documents as records, and ways to manage those records throughout their life cycle—identifying and creating records, eDiscovery or hold, auditing, expiration, and disposal. In SharePoint Server 2010, records management supports managing records in an archive or repository, and supports in-place records management.
- Managing Enterprise Metadata in SharePoint
Enterprise metadata, or managed metadata, is a hierarchical collection of centrally managed terms that you can define and then use as metadata throughout SharePoint Server 2010 and other Microsoft Office 2010 applications. The metadata is managed because terms and term sets (collections of terms) are managed independently of the columns or fields that require them.
- N7Managing Web Content in SharePoint
Web content management (WCM) enables the configuration, deployment, customization, and optimization of sites, site collections, pages, Web Parts, and documents.
