Find the Best Way for SharePoint and Enterprise Content Management Vendors to Coexist

White Paper Published By: OpenText
Published:  May 15, 2012
Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

As SharePoint continues to improve its enterprise content management (ECM) functionality, organizations that already invested in ECM systems, or that have complex ECM needs, face a quandary: Should they replace their existing platform and use SharePoint as their sole ECM solution, or should they integrate the two? The answer isn't always simple, but most companies will find that, despite SharePoint's enhancements, many ECM tools and features can only be enabled with a carefully planned ECM integration strategy. 

In the Forrester article Putting Together the SharePoint ECM Puzzle: Find the Best Way for SharePoint and ECM Vendors to Coexist, Alan Weintraub guides you through these issues. You'll learn about:

  • Specific ways SharePoint is disrupting organizations' ECM strategies
  • Challenges involved in integrating SharePoint into your ECM architecture
  • Gaps and overlaps between SharePoint and different ECM solutions
  • Specific ECM functionality that SharePoint alone cannot  provide
  • Assessing your organization's needs in relation to SharePoint's ECM capabilities
