Organisations requiring help with enterprise content management (ECM) implementations received a boost today in the form of a new framework created by a group of leading consulting and analyst firms.
The ECM Maturity Model (ECM3) has been launched by Wipro, Hartman Communicatie, Smigiel Consulting Group and CMS Watch, and aims to provide a structured framework for building an ECM roadmap.
The model provides "graded levels of capabilities", which range from the rudimentary, such as information collection and basic control, through to sophisticated management and integration. This will "finally result in a mature state of continuous experimentation and improvement", according to the ECM3 blog.
"Like all maturity models, it is partly descriptive and partly prescriptive, " said CMS Watch principal Alan Pelz-Sharpe. "You can apply the model to audit, assess and explain your current state, as well as inform a roadmap for maturing your enterprise capabilities."
The model is targeted at ECM business champions, analysts and IT leaders, and hypothetical examples of organisations at each maturity level are included to make it more accessible.
