The most popular and comprehensive Open Source ECM platform
SaaS-based Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is predicted to grow at an average annual rate of 31 percent from 2013 to 2018, based on a report by TechNavio Research. This compares to the total global ECM market which is expected to grow only 12 percent annually over the same period. On-premise ECM still holds the bulk of the market share for the total ECM market space at 91 percent, but on-premise is expected to be slowly displaced by cloud-based solutions from now until 2018.
Some reasons why Cloud ECM is so attractive compared to On-Premise ECM solutions include:
- Faster Startup
- Lifecycle Management. Systems are easier to support and improve
Faisal Ghaus, TechNavio Research Vice President, said that “SaaS-based ECM provides all the benefits of on-premise ECM systems in a trouble-free environment so that customers can focus on their core business activities while achieving a significant reduction in the total cost of ownership,” said in the report.
