Organizations continuously create a large amount of data and information on a daily basis. This data may be stored in a number of different formats; documents, emails, worksheets, diagrams, presentations, pictures, audios, videos and web pages for example to name a few.
Employees need easy and continuous access to this content to efficiently run their day to day activities. If this content is not managed, it becomes very difficult, if not impossible, to find and keep track of this information. Enterprise Content Management (ECM) with SharePoint provides you with the tools you need to organize and manage your content throughout its lifecycle. From creation and collaboration to archiving and records management, SharePoint takes care of your content according to your organization's business rules and policies. SharePoint ECM integrates the familiar tools of the Microsoft Office system with the central management and collaboration features of the SharePoint products and technologies for a more fluent work enviornment.
