Fuel your digital innovations with integrated Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions
Maximize the potential of complete end to end digital information framework – with SAP Extended Enterprise Content Management by OpenText. This ECM solution covers everything from document and records management to information retrieval and collaboration– and helps connect your e-mails, presentation slides, documents, and other unstructured content to your core business processes.
Because the ECM software gives your entire organization fast access to unstructured information in the context of your business activities. It provides cloud-based and mobile collaboration tools that can help you improve process efficiency, employee productivity, customer engagement, and more. With SAP Extended ECM, you can:
Provide a secure, easy-to-use enterprise content management system (ECM)
Rapidly access, distribute, and store documents across departments and office locations
Implement a DoD 5015.2 certified records management solution for all unstructured content, including SAP
Integrate documents with SAP transactions and workflows to shorten cycle times
Streamline IT, cut application and admin costs, and optimize resource consumption
Collaboration Use the software’s online collaboration and document sharing features to strengthen internal social and expert networks, ensure accurate information disclosure, and re-use traditional corporate content and collective knowledge.
Document Management Link any piece of electronic content to business processes to make it easy to find and share content organization-wide. Ensure information accuracy and currency through document version control, access control, and audit trail capabilities. And help users find what they need, when they need it with powerful search functions, classifications, and metadata that identifies authors and stakeholders.
Content-Centric Workflow The software’s integrated workflow electronically routes documents from one person to the next so you can replace paper-based processes. The result is a more collaborative, content-centric process (for approvals, for example) which can then be integrated with SAP business workflows.
Document Capture Manage high-volume and low-volume scanning requirements with automated metadata tagging and enhanced image scanning. Support key business systems and all major scanning hardware to quickly and cost-effectively turn paper documents into digital business assets. And automatically render content into standardized formats to ensure future readability.
Provide a certified records management program that spans multiple SAP and non-SAP systems. Manage electronic and physical records throughout their lifecycle in a way that complies with regulations, such as the U.S. Department of Defense’s 5015.2, ISO 15489, VERS certification, and European MoReq2 requirements. Plus, create classification plans, retention periods, and disposition policies – and place items scheduled for destruction on hold.
Content Access Access business-related documents from any location to ensure consistent information flow and efficient global business processes. Integrate content from multiple SAP and non-SAP systems to create process-oriented, virtual views directly in your SAP interfaces.
Archive petabytes of digital ECM and SAP content in a common archive store – and access it quickly, reliably, and transparently. Write content onto alternate, unchangeable storage media, time-stamp it, and then retain audit trails within the archive. Identify duplicate instances of content within the file system to eliminate redundant copies – and automatically compress the content you want to keep. You can also define rules to specify storage hardware for your archive systems.
System and software requirements vary according to specific customer scenarios – please refer to the SAP Extended ECM by OpenText Sizing Guide for details. Also, please see the SAP Extended ECM by OpenText Product Availability Matrix for the latest information on updates and releases.
