Enterprise Content Management (ECM) • Definition: (from Wikepedia) • “Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is a formalized means of organizing and storing an organization's documents, and other content, that relate to the organization's processes.

  7. Analysis of ECM • There are many overlaps in these systems and it helps to look at the broad picture. • Because of this diversity, one solution will not meet all needs. • Must give special consideration to the notion of “...throughout the lifecycle of the content.”, not just its final state. CHECO Fall 2011 Conference

  8. Metro State’s ECM Legacy • What problems were we trying to solve? (as developed over time… 1994 - present) • Minimize paper files to save space. • Ease of use: Make images available for viewing from anywhere on campus. • Overload: Too hard to Keep track of a variety of asset types on network file folders. • Collaboration: Locations for document editing and sharing in a community setting. CHECO Fall 2011 Conference

  9. Metro State’s ECM Legacy • What problems were we trying to solve? (continued) • Automating Forms for Efficiency. • Paper getting lost/misdirected when editing or signatures are needed. • Institutional Digital Assets not widely available. • Web Content not kept up-to-date. CHECO Fall 2011 Conference

  10. Metro State Solutions • Office space was the top priority in the 90s: • Solution: Built document imaging, converted to Banner document imaging, moved to OTG…Legato…Documentum…EMC Xtender. • Just under 5,000,000 indexed pages • 600 users using 35 ‘projects’. • 90% student, Finance or employee related and paired to Banner. • Issues: • Scanning at wrong resolution (waste disk) • Time Consuming process of scan and index. • Status: Success! CHECO Fall 2011 Conference

  11. Metro State Solutions • Ease of Access • Solution: Streamlined process of getting security and access to document imaging: • Web client put on the standard image. • Use EMC DiskXtender to more easily control security to folders with image files. (No end user AD permissions needed.) • Issues: • Needs .25 FTE to manage, and document owner approvals. • Status: • Success! CHECO Fall 2011 Conference

  12. Metro State Solutions • File Overload: • Solution: Looked/looking at a number of products more robust than network file shares including: • MS SharePoint • EMC Documentum Digital Asset Manager • Issues: • Initial cost and ongoing maintenance • Effort to maintain, especially Sharepoint • Status: • Eliminated SharePoint • Rest of investigation continues… CHECO Fall 2011 Conference
