Frequently Asked Questions
Enterprise content management (ECM) is a software application that helps organizations create, organize, manage, integrate, secure, preserve, distribute, and publish unstructured content, such as Word, PDF, PPT, XLS, images, videos, and audio files. An important element of an effective ECM system is its integration with business applications, allowing users to work collaboratively within the context of the business process across the enterprise. ECM allows organizations to categorize and structure content in a meaningful, searchable way, improving the user experience and providing important analytical capabilities to drive better decision-making. Robust ECM solutions also provide strong records management capabilities to help lower costs and reduce compliance risks. Software-as-a-service–based ECM applications are commonly referred to as content services.
Master data management (MDM) is the discipline of creating one trusted master reference (a single version of the truth) for all important business data, such as product data, customer data, asset data, finance data, and more. MDM helps ensure you don’t use multiple, potentially inconsistent versions of data in different parts of the business, including processes, operations, analytics, and reporting. The three key pillars to effective MDM include data consolidation, data governance, and data quality management. Consistent master data fuels operational excellence.
A data fabric automates the processing, integration, transformation, preparation, curation, governance, and orchestration of all data assets to enable real-time analytics and insights for successful business outcomes. It minimizes complexity by automating processes, workflows, and pipelines. It also streamlines data access to accelerate various use cases, such as providing a 360-degree view of customers, data science, fraud detection, internet-of-things (IoT) analytics, risk analytics, and healthcare insights. Our enterprise data fabric solution consists of capabilities from SAP Business Technology Platform, anchored by SAP Data Intelligence and SAP HANA (including SAP HANA Cloud).
The business data fabric builds on the data fabric approach to further simplify how organizations can deliver data to every consumer – with business context and application logic intact. While previous data fabric architectures successfully minimized data management complexity, most failed to keep the semantic context and application logic from the data sources. The full business perspective of data had to be manually rebuilt in parallel to deliver data in business terms. The business data fabric augments previous data fabric capabilities to retain and deliver the preestablished semantic context and application logic that come from the business data by default.
