ECM vendors offer a wide array of functionality, but few offer multiple deployment options.
So when you’re looking to deploy your solution, it’s good to have options. You might even want to consider it critically important when determining which enterprise content management (ECM) solution is right for you.
Identifying which deployment option is best for your organisation starts with an assessment of your business needs, infrastructure and policies. Do you want to install and manage all your software in-house? Do you prefer cloud-based solutions? Would a hybrid of these meet your needs?
A high-value ECM provider will deliver flexible deployment options, including:
A nimble vendor will also give customers the ability to move between these options as their organisation’s needs change or business expands.
ECM solutions are highly-valued assets used every day throughout an organisation for as many as five to 15 years. An organisation and its users’ needs will no doubt vary over the course of those years. An ECM vendor must be able to give users a choice of deployment options to meet their current needs as well as the ability to switch deployment options as changes occur in the organisation.
