Gartner declared ECM dead in early 2017 with the post “The Death of ECM and Birth of Content Services” and born out of its ashes is born Modern Content Services. Microsoft has fully embraced and embodied it. Personally I saw it first hand while at Konica Minolta. The entire space has been a push to the cloud and business processes realigned to cloud based content services. The file, scan and print business has turned dial tone and subscriptions and much of what was growing moved to the cloud with the legacy monolithic ECM systems. That’s not to say you can’t find legacy file cabinets and legacy datacenters. It’s definitely time to wake up and recognize the business has moved on and they’ve embraced usability and user experience…

Description: Join Microsoft MVP Joel Oleson and Microsoft Gold Partner, HELUX, as we explore the evolution of traditional ECM into Content Services. Microsoft has been leading the charge in SharePoint and Office 365 with a rich ecosystem of applications, and components and rich integration into other content services platforms. In this webinar we’ll explore how ECM has truly evolved from being an unrealized dream of consolidation which never fully arrived, to modern Content Services as a focus of coordination where users see value in the creation, the storage and coordination flow. Additional value is realized in the harvesting and extraction, designed with intelligent security in mind. ECM is evolving. Content Services is core to Office 365, OneDrive and SharePoint.

• ECM evolution to content services needs to embrace a holistic approach to managing the entire lifecycle of document creation, sharing, consumption, reuse, knowledge, and records management, archiving and disposal.

For the second year in a row, Microsoft has been recognized as the leader in Content Services Platforms by the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Microsoft’s exceptional execution of its products and services. SharePoint’s role in content services for Office 365 is self dubbed “people-centric,” focusing on the use of documents, videos, designs, scans, pages, and other useful applications. This offers industries such as the medical field to efficiently share medical scans within their intranet system and properly collaborate with other medical professionals through the ease of sharing their documents from one doctor to another instantaneously, saving time, money, and energy as one example. These innovations have changed the way companies interact with one another as well as how they operate as a single system. This earns Microsoft their well-deserved recognition as a leader in both Content Collaboration Platforms and Content Services Platforms, the only company to do so in the Gartner Magic Quadrant.
