Enterprise Content Management for FileNet
According to IBM, content is the currency that fuels and funds digital transformation. Content possesses information about customers — their behaviors, sentiments and value to the organization — but only if you can harness it. Collectively, content buried in repositories, file shares and cloud folders across the enterprise represents the knowledge of the organization. Federated ECM from Simflofy allows the IBM ecosystem to be accessed securely and seamlessly by Knowledge workers. Federated Enterprise Content Management by Simflofy allows the knowledge worker to consume and interact with information stored within IBM and other locations securely and seamlessly. It provides enterprise class functionality for ECM systems that manage and control access to a variety of file types — not just documents — and typically have additional capabilities including workflow automation, business process management, and records management/information governance.
About Simflofy Enterprise Content Management for FileNetThe IBM perspective states that, as content grows at unprecedented speeds, organizations are taking concrete steps to streamline their processes relating to content services. “Content chaos” — the lack of digitized content and the inability to access the right content at the right time — is a pervasive barrier to businesses today.
We at Simflofy understand this “Content chaos” challenge that is plaguing enterprises as they drown in the volume, velocity and variety of content being created at astronomical speeds. To address this challenge, we have created Federated Enterprise Content Management for the IBM portfolio, specifically focused on FileNet .
Frequently asked questions about Enterprise Content Management for FileNet.
1- What does Enterprise Content Management do?
While a document management system allows you to manage and control documents across your organization, an enterprise content management (ECM) system offers much broader capabilities for managing and controlling access to a variety of file types — not just documents — and may include additional capabilities including workflows, business process management, and information governance.
2- What does Federation do?
While an enterprise content management solution creates a central location to capture and store your organization’s file-centric information, vital information invariably ends up scattered all over the enterprise. This makes finding current versions of documents and information much more difficult. Federation by Simflofy allows knowledge workers to focus on their roles rather than hunting down pieces of paper or digital assets across repositories and silos
3- What should I look for with regards to Federation Capability?
When evaluating Federation vendors, it’s important to consider its ability to integrate and extend other line-of-business systems, so that content can be available across a range of business applications (such as Salesforce and SAP). Consideration also needs to be given to how users will interact with the system. Different people want to work in different ways — on mobile devices, via web browsers or directly from the desktop.
4- How can Federation help the business?
Federation provides the ability to unlock trapped content, it expedites decision-making, improves knowledge worker engagement, and ultimately reduces the cost of wasted or duplicated efforts. Fundamentally, Federation helps organizations and knowledge workers categorize and visualize relevant enterprise content and enables users to quickly find answers to questions and optimize the business impact of their decisions
5- What is a single source of truth?
Content resides in multiple repositories and business systems. That is a reality of today’s IT enterprise. Finding and storing that vital content securely is a challenge many organizations face today. Federation for IBM is an enterprise-class service that provides integrations into other business applications so that you avoid creating content silos, and providing the enterprise with a single source of truth
