Effectively using your organization’s information and content can be the key to success, better productivity and competitive advantage
Yet many companies are not sure how to implement Enterprise Content Management (ECM) effectively in their organizations. Some begin by implementing the base technology and then struggle with the fundamentals. End users become confused by the terminology around the technology being communicated, and this confusion often leads to difficulties with end-user adoption, among other things.
CDIT’s ECM Strategy Roadmap Service Engagement provides a comprehensive approach to help our customers succeed with their ECM initiatives. By examining important elements of an organization’s current and future landscape, and aligning with their Key Performance Indicators and Value Chains, CDIT’s ECM Strategy Roadmap Service Engagement provides direction that makes sense.
The ECM Strategy Roadmap — Your Blueprint for Success
Our ECM Strategy Roadmaps provide structured paths to implementing ECM which help accelerate critical business processes through the efficient Capture, Transformation, Delivery and Exchange of critical information within your organization.
Our ECM Strategy Roadmaps highlight the thinking, the planning, sequence of activities and the range of skills needed – across the organization – to truly leverage ECM.
How do we get started?
Under the ECM Strategy Roadmap Engagement, CDIT’s ECM Consultants work closely with your organization’s team – including participants from executive leadership, operations, IT, and key business units – in the development of the ECM Roadmap. The joint team embarks on a series of focused activities and phases designed to surface and evaluate ECM opportunities based on the needs and direction of the organization. This approach promotes consensus building and buy-in across the organization, which is a necessary ingredient for subsequent implementations of the ECM solution.
During the Value Chain Assessment phase, we work closely alongside your Business Team to define a plan that supports the Primary Activities and Supporting Activities for departmental, divisional and/or functional area operations in order to maximize the use of ECM in your organization. Business Imperatives, including the key issues, needs, and/or business drivers that justify the deployment of the ECM platform, are confirmed with those groups and/or departments targeted to be on-boarded.
During the Discovery phase, we examine Content Flows within each group and/or department to uncover the foundation for how content moves within the organization. The Content Flows trigger information exchange between departments/functional areas and other processing systems. Through interviews and facilitated discovery sessions, the Content Flows will be identified and validated by the user community. Content Flows are then classified at the macro level, among the various ECM technology components.
During the Alignment phase, we embark on defining Project Scenarios and aligning and prioritizing these scenarios to the Value Chain.
Where do we go from there?
The ECM Roadmap is then developed and formalized – with the prioritization of Projects and definition of Timelines for implementation. This ECM Roadmap is used as the basis for project planning and the strategic introduction of ECM technologies into your organization. CDIT provides a full framework of ECM design and implementation services and can participate in the detailed design and implementation of these projects, as required.
