Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is an organizational process methodology designed for complete content life cycle management. ECM content includes documents, graphics, email and video.

Today, ECM solutions employ a single software package that encompasses multiple enterprise divisions, including accounting, customer service and human resources (HR).
