The Chess Pieces Are Moving in the ECM World, thanks to last weeks big acquisition.


By Vanessa Miller Managing Director, VM Consulting

For those of you who haven’t heard, Opentext has acquired Documentum.  As many of you know, I have been involved in the ECM space for well over 18 years and have seen many acquisitions in this space come and go. Of all the acquisitions, I have to say this is the one that I am most excited about, as it is set to place the ECM world as we know it on it’s head. Why am I so excited, well lets face it, customers are looking for solutions that do more, that bring value to a business, that fit into a business instead of the business trying to fit into the software…. ECM is no longer what is needed… Business Solutions that help businesses manage content, information and process are key, and our smart partners at M-Files realise this.  M-Files, Greg Milliken paints the picture perfectly in his recent article so well….. take a read The End of the Beginning for ECM.
