As the Fourth of July approaches, we reflect on the formation of our government and the fact that the 3 branches of government are co-equal, as laid out in the first three Articles of the Constitution and several amendments. If you think of Capture, Content Management Repository and Business Process Management (BPM) they are the three pillars of successful ECM in the enterprise. Having one without the other does not give the enterprise the full benefit and ROI the technologies have to offer.
Sometimes explaining the value of utilizing all three of these to customers can be challenging. So, here’s a fun and simple way to think about it: The concept is best illustrated by the game, “Rock, Paper, Scissors“, which is a game everyone knows. Depending on circumstances, each application has a chance to provide more ROI than another one, but without one the other cannot truly provide processes efficiencies. Just like our government and if any one branch vetos or stops a bill.
