nterprise content experts such as Forrester and Gartner are coming out in force declaring the need for businesses to unify their data. More specifically, islands of ECM need to be replaced with a way for ECM to be unified with other enterprise data. Guess what? - We’ve already got that covered!
Since the founding of this company two years ago, we’ve always known that our technology had massive potential to disrupt the software status quo on a very deep level. That’s why it was music to our ears to read some compelling market research confirming our view and the need for our Asterion Unified ECM solution.
Asterion Unified ECM delivers on all the challenges that the analysts cite for traditional ECM..
These two quotes from the CMS Wire article called “Is Enterprise Content Management as We Know it Done” featuring interviews by Virginia Backaitis lie at the core of our good mood today:
“Customers are also looking for a next-generation ECM cloud solution that brings together content-centric applications and data-centric applications onto one platform.
This hasn’t been possible: you had one system to manage structured content and another to manage unstructured data.
Companies have attempted to integrate their systems only to discover that it was too complex, difficult or impossible and the cost was astronomical.”
-- Jennifer Goldsmith, Senior Vice President, Veeva Vault at Veeva Systems
We’re happy because bringing together unstructured, structured and any other kind of data you can think of into one platform is at the CORE of what we offer. Using buzz words from the article, we have merged the capabilities of "content-centric" and "data-centric" applications onto one platform. Forrester Research Analyst Cheryl McKinnon had this to say:
“ What is the future of ECM? Cohesive content platforms, built for granular application creation, using low code/no code approaches, with analytics at the core, the decomposition of ECM features into APIs and services to let companies, SI’s or ISVs to deliver simple content/process apps.”
That's another point right in our wheelhouse. The future of ECM demands universal APIs so that content can be more easily integrated into existing applications. We do exactly this by integrating complete ECM capabilities with the database and enabling the full wealth of database APIs and services. This approach avoids needing different “silos” to manage each type of data and the resultant difficulties with integration into the dynamic/transactional systems.
We happily agree with CMS Wire -- Asterion Unified ECM is the future…and it’s here.
