Migrate your ECM to the cloud by Bentech-2
There are many old, on-premises enterprise content management systems in the workplace today, outdated and in dire need of replacement. A decade ago, businesses would have replaced an old ECM system with a new on-premises platform, and the problem is that the current outdated system was a replacement for the old system.
Many organizations are trying to develop a strategy to move ECM to the cloud to break this never-ending cycle of change. Organizations need to think about why their current ECM systems are failing and use the cloud to change the course of their future.
This cycle of failed systems is due to several factors. Historically, businesses have focused on system functionality, not on the user experience. This has led to a decline in consumer adoption. If staff adopted the ECM system, IT departments would generally ignore it over time, leading to a decline in performance and a system that does not change with the business.
When to consider moving the ECM to the cloud with Bentech
Migrating to the cloud, like any ECM migration, is no small task. But with charitable technologies it’s easy, so the first step to a successful migration is to understand when to migrate. There are several important times to move ECM to the cloud.
3. Make additional progress
Businesses should start developing a strategy to move ECM to the cloud so that a simple content problem can be solved. The resulting system will form the basis of cloud-based content services.
Some organizations start with a very complex application, but this can lead to longer deployments. You do not want your organization to become overwhelmed with learning by working to understand the intricacies of a complex process.
Work together to create the least viable product for your cloud-based content service needs. Then, when you meet the next content requirement, you add functionality and complexity without determining all the details of the cloud environment.
4. Accelerate the future
Once the first cloud-based content services application goes live, move on to success. You may find that you can expand faster than ever before and increase the size and number of hardware resources faster. And, as an added benefit, if you make a part of the system too big, you can shrink it back to reduce your cost. There will be times when you have to take a step back from rolling out new applications to focus on improving everyday tasks.
As cloud-based content services mature, content projects will no longer focus on changing the legacy system and you can solve new problems.
