How Do YOU Manage Your CONTENT ECOSYSTEM Across Your Organization?

A short summary of the German-language webinar hosted by ASG Technologies with guest speaker Dr. Martin Boehn, Head of CRM and ECM at BARC, and Jan Falkenstein, Enterprise Solution Engineer, ASG.

In our webinar, ASG and BARC both agreed on two main facts:

  1.  Today, organizations need to be faster, smarter and more innovative than ever to succeed in a constantly changing economic environment. Responding to, even anticipating, change demands effective use of information, and much of that information rests in ever-growing volumes of content. Managing, governing and leveraging information remains difficult for organizations dealing with several variables such as exploding data volumes, the push to democratize data access, the demand for employee efficiency and automation, the increasing employee and customer expectations and the growing regulations.
  1. The better organizations can manage and govern content, the better they can serve their business, stay in compliance and empower employees and processes to drive new and improved value.

Mature organizations have complex problems. They have multiple content collections that are stored within various databases, repositories, network file shares and some likely acquired through corporate mergers. Departments often maintain their own collections and collaboration tools, designed to address workgroup needs. With the increasing prevalence of cloud-connected repositories, more silos become present on a regular basis.

Organizations face a continuing dilemma when digitizing business activities. On one hand, they need to reduce the sprawl of disconnected content silos. And on the other, these discrete applications with their separate repositories support important business functions attempting to be more information-powered and responsive. The complexity of the organization’s existing content ecosystem makes it difficult for leaders of IT and digital transformation efforts to:

  • Digitize day-to-day operations
  • Improve digital experiences
  • Reduce operating costs while continuing to utilize legacy resources

Moreover, organizations look to leverage investments in existing enterprise information resources wherever possible and need modern and cost-effective ways to rationalize and connect these fragmented content sources.

Dr. Martin Boehn made it clear: “Many companies have become painfully aware in recent weeks of how inflexible their processes and the use of information are. Too many users wasted time with searches, copies and unclear responsibilities. Customers, partners and employees really do not forgive long and inflexible processes,”  and added: “A modern content ecosystem provides the context as needed in the business processes and supports the targeted use of content instead of just filing it."

The answer to the question how organizations will be able to interconnect the information across the different silos is easy and simple: ASG Technologies modern Mobius Smart Content Ecosystem.

ASG’s Mobius solution can cope with the ever-growing volume, velocity and variety of digital information. It empowers the organization to interconnect the information across the different silos and sources, including cloud platforms, business applications and databases and arms organizations to manage, govern and leverage its content ecosystem. Not only can the content be transparently and centrally accessed to search and display, but it is also available for integration into process automation, auditing and analytics, as well as Governance Services like redaction and records retention, legal holds and more.

It becomes a tool for digital business design, a way for organizations to harness multiple content silos and to automate, extend and enhance key business processes. It accelerates the organization’s push to be an information-powered, responsive enterprise. By leveraging connected content resources, organizations can push ahead with their digital initiatives while remaining sufficiently agile to adapt to changing business situations. They can unlock content captured by multiple enterprise applications and harness the information for business value. By making it easy to integrate with various content repositories, organizations can substantially reduce the cost, time and effort required to develop digital platforms that transform business operations.

There must be a reason why leading companies such as Liberty Mutual and Postbank selected ASG Mobius, and I’m proud sharing this statement that Mr. Gerold Blasig, Project Manager, Competence Center Channels, Services & Sales, Postbank Systems AG made:
(Quote from the Reference Case Study)

“Our selection team chose Mobius unanimously in 2004, and the decision has proved to be the right one. Mobius scaled to enable our insourcing business and our merger with Deutsche Bank. It adapted to new European Union regulatory requirements. Mobius archives massive amounts of data from multiple sources and enables secure access to it within seconds.”
