Abit enterprise content management

Enterprise content management is an innovative software solution which reduces administrative personnel and enhances the achievement of operational goals like: time compression, automation of the business processes, reduction of expenses.

The common definition of enterprise content management (ECM) was created by AIIM (Association for Information and Image Management), the worldwide association for enterprise content management in 2000. In autumn 2005 AIIM defined ECM as follows: Enterprise Content Management are the technologies used to Capture, Manage, Store, Preserve, and Deliver content and documents related to organisational processes. The exchange of information and processes is one of the most important segments of business of every company. Using ECM enables companies to overcome more easily daily challenges, being better associated with clients, partners and employees. ECM solutions help companies comply with the law, employees become more efficient and clients more satisfied with the provided service. ECM tools and strategies allow the management of an organisation's unstructured information, wherever that information exists. Content must be managed so that it is used to achieve business goals. In business process content will be properly captured, stored and arranged during its lifetime. Document technologies like Enterprise Content Management make traditional data processing complete. They bring together structured, weakly structured and unstructured information, so the ECM solutions are necessary basic components for many applications. The ABIT ECM system was designed according to the AIIM (Association for Information and Image Management) definition and it contains 5 components: - Capture, - Manage, - Store, - Deliver, - Preserve. Components for Content Management (Manage) contain 5 components: 1. Document Management (DM, DMS) - these systems control documents from their creation through to long-term archiving. 2. Collaboration - Supports collaboration processes, by providing information as needed, regardless of time or location. Supports group work and communication. Enhances the learning process in the organisation. 3. Web Content Management (WCM, Portal) - information presented on the Internet and/or on a portal should only be data that is already present in the company, and whose delivery is controlled by access authorisation and storage. 4. Records Management (RM, archive site and data preserve system) - refers to the pure administration of records, important information and data that companies are required to archive, as well as managing information stored otherwise than in electronic systems. 5. Workflow/Business Process Management (BPM, elaboration of business process) - Capture, visualisation, administration and delivery of grouped information with its associated documents or data. Incorporation of data processing tools and documents. Reminders, deadlines, delegations, work lists and other administration functionalities. Monitoring and documentation of process status.
