The opportunities today for developers, suppliers and service providers in the document management and enterprise content management (ECM) space are found across the board. No matter what category of business or which industry segment you focus on, you can bet that the fundamental activities of those organizations are reliant on documents, content and technology to get the job done.

These days, the way people shop retail has changed. E-commerce plays a bigger role, and with so many specialty stores, a full-line discount store or department store isn’t seeing all the traffic it once did. In fact, the change has been so drastic that we have seen many retailers exit the industry. Shoppers have an abundance of specialty stores in which to find their specific item or to speak to a specialist who can help them find that item. (Think Apple Store or your local cycle shop).

Assessing customer experience and satisfaction can reveal digital efficiency levels and serve as a guide to creating a highly competitive, “future-ready” enterprise.

Those include information captured in an image archive or document management repository, which can include data like social security numbers, financial and medical records, addresses and phone numbers. These pieces of information can translate into great prospect and profit for cyber-thieves. Is your organization protecting them?

1116 Stewart 150by Ken Stewart for Workflow

Identify theft, keyloggers, malware, phishing, ransomware, and state-sponsored hacking — hallmarks of the complex and intricate landscape of information security we inhabit today.

Security concerns have become pervasive and palpable — a dark, alternate reality confirmed by the barrage of breaking headlines. What are you to do in the face of such wantonly malicious intent?
