Examples of guiding principles as components in an ECM strategy

This post will be very short, as it is just meant to provide some examples of guiding principles for an ECM strategy (to support a conversion on Twitter). I might explain these in more detail later on:
  • Be open by default
  • Integrate ECM capabilities into the daily workflow
  • Allow all types of content to be managed
  • Manage content throughout its life-cycle
  • Manage critical content as other assets
  • Ensure there is one version of the truth
  • Make content accessible in every context it is needed
  • Different content needs to be managed differently (one size does not fit all)
  • Share links to content, not the actual content
