SpringCM Webinar: Avoiding Failure in SaaS ECM Deployment

Continuing professional education can be one of the tools to make you more valuable and marketable in these uncertain economic times. Here’s an opportunity to learn more about SaaS Enterprise Content Management at a webinar hosted by SpringCM and Forrester Research.

Is Enterprise Content Management (ECM) an infrastructure platform or an application? What are the advantages and limitations of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in ECM? These questions and more are to be covered at this webinar.

SpringCM, SaaS ECM Vendor

Vendor-sponsored webinars can be tricky, but they do provide useful information for current customers and prospects, as well as for general audiences looking to learn more about the product.

SpringCM has been a promoter of SaaS Enterprise Content Management for quite some time now. Most recently, we covered SpringCM’s document management and records management solutions, and its SaaS evangelism. Before attending the webinar, read up on the vendor in our coverage

Webinar Topics, or How to Avoid an ECM Failure

Is Enterprise Content Management (ECM) an infrastructure platform or an application? The fact is, say webinar hosts, it is both. However, Forrester says that when ECM is deployed only as infrastructure, it often results in failure.

Software as a Service (SaaS) can be one of the content management options for modern enterprises looking for a rapid, agile way to deploy content-centric applications that solve specific business problems. While SaaS may not be the answer for all, some organizations may find it to be a suitable solution.
Join Connie Moore, VP and research director at Forrester Research, and Dan Carmel, CEO of SpringCM, as they discuss key market trends and deployment strategies.
In this webinar you will learn:
  • Why the notion of ECM as enterprise infrastructure often leads to failure and what you can do to avoid it
  • Why so-called best-of-breed applications may not be your best option
  • The advantages and limitations of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in ECM
  • How SaaS ECM helps you move to Lean Software in lean economic times
  • How Software-as-a-Service can be effectively used by organizations to automate key content-centric business processes
