More than 70% of organizations plan on increasing their ECM investments in the coming year, according to the Forrester "2009 Global Enterprise Content Management Online Survey." However, for those who implemented an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution, 41% said they were unsatisfied with the return on their investment. The cost benefit of any ECM initiative is directly related to the adoption rate of the system throughout an organization. The more it is used and leveraged, more efficiencies are gained and a higher rate of return is realized.This presentation demonstrates how an Open Source Enterprise Content Management system can drive adoption of ECM in an enterprise much more effectively than its commercial counterparts purely based on its commitment to standards, ease of scalability and open source licensing model.
