(previously known as ECM!)


In the cloud world, keeping up with change can be tough.  Content management is amid an evolution from traditional document warehousing and ECM to the growing world of Content Services.

Our new white paper, “Modernizing Enterprise Content Management with Microsoft Content Services”  explains the difference and shows how you can adopt Microsoft Content Services, powered by SharePoint, to help achieve digital transformation in your organization.   


As we see it, this is an ongoing journey in multiple phases:


The cycle of content servicesThe cycle of content services

  • Harvest: Intelligently analyze, discover, reuse, search, dispose of content
  • Create: Create, collect, and classify the documents you need to get work done
  • Coordinate: Share, discuss, and coauthor content using groups, metadata, taxonomy, Teams, Flow, and PowerApps
  • Protect: Manage compliance and reduce risk with lifecycle, information architecture, auditing, rights management, and eDiscovery

Historically, many organizations have a heritage with classic on premises document warehouses, or unmanaged cloud storage.  As more and more organizations join our content cloud, we thought it would help to detail our capabilities across the board.  And our new white paper includes all our latest content services announcements from Ignite.


Finally, you can always get to related information on the Content Services Resource Center here on the TechCommunity.  The resource center helps you get to our white paper and related resources such as analyst reports, Ignite training, case studies and news to guide your content services journey.

Interesting to read about this. We have been using Office 365 for a while now, but pretty much just the e-mail part. But we have now started to look at the option to use SharePoint, Teams and the other solutions available for a more modern approach. So far we have already found a lot of benefits (of course)!
