TLA SERIES: WHAT DOES ECM MEAN?
ECM stands for Enterprise Content Management.
The definition of ECM is the strategies, methods and tools used to capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver content and documents related to organizational processes.
Let’s break each of those down:
Capture – get paper, spreadsheets, etc. into the system
Manage – make that information searchable and set permissions
Store – the digital version of “filing”
Preserve – “archive filing”
Deliver – information when needed
