The adoption of modern cloud-based technology is steadily on the upswing, and it stands to reason. A recent McAfee report found that 87% of companies experience business acceleration from the use of cloud services. At the heart of these boardroom decisions is the information that supports an organization’s critical business processes—how to manage it, how to leverage it, and how to keep it secure. Content services in the cloud is the next generation of traditional enterprise content management (ECM) and has become an increasingly popular choice to modernize aging document management systems.

Letting Go of Legacy

Today, digital transformation requires a more intelligent approach for managing business information. Traditional ECM systems cannot fully support the modern, customer-first mentality that many organizations seek. It ranks as one of the top priorities for CIOs to drive and embed digital transformation in the company business strategy, and to achieve these goals they look to content services platforms that can not only handle the exploding volumes of business inputs and data, but also provide valuable insight into that information to advance process improvements and new innovation opportunities.

Cloud first or -at a minimum- on the list

Cloud-driven content services solutions enable a more flexible way to manage content and can help your organization efficiently deliver differentiated products and services, simplify manual processes with workflows and automation, and provide an enhanced customer experience.

Flexibility is the Key

Cloud-based content services can be deployed in a variety of ways, depending on the provider. This flexibility gives organizations a choice when deciding on a solution to best fit their current digital ecosystem and personalized needs. When considering new initiatives or legacy content cloud is a flexible option with its ability to be up and going quickly, easily, and without the infrastructure.

Compliance on Your Side

Compliance is another big area for organizations to realize cost savings. With cloud-based content services, advanced security and governance features prevent private information from being accessed by unauthorized users. Mitigating risk with ever-growing features to support modern compliance needs maintains content services to remain compliant moving forward.

Data Privacy in the Spotlight

Data privacy is a top priority for organizations. Customers want and need to feel confident in their decision to trust companies with their personal data. Protecting consumer information requires an organized, structured approach. Yesterday’s security concerns are eclipsed by the sheer quantity of adopters all requiring high scale and quality security.
