Enterprise Content Management
The five central disciplines of professional Enterprise Content Management
Content Management has become an integral part of company IT. As a coordinative, superordinate entity, this technology does manage or present simple, unstructured information, multi-media content, structured XML- or DBMS-data, as well as important and valuable documents. The content management technologies required for this need to be combined with process-driven applications and open, standardized communication interfaces. Providers classify these frameworks and toolsets under the term Enterprise Content Management (ECM).
The InterRed GmbH addresses these requirements with the company software InterRed Enterprise. High-performance and innovative technologies based on an open architecture are the basis of your future-proof IT. What started with ‘intranets’ and ‘extranets’ has long since developed to become the focal point of data exchange of modern enterprises.
The Enterprise Content Management System "InterRed Enterprise" masters the five central disciplines of professional Enterprise Content Management. With InterRed Enterprise content can be:
An important aspect is the openness of the architecture. Via interfaces (e.g. REST), InterRed Enterprise shows itself not only capable of communicating but also of coordinating with external systems. While a single, monolithic repository would be an ideal ECM foundation, in the real world, disparate, isolated repositories and data sources must be integrated. InterRed can form a central data bus through which any information can be made available.
The resulting central data repository for arbitrary applications, now enables uniform and standardized information access. In addition to structured data storage, InterRed also offers particularly simple communication. The InterRed enterprise content management system enables both synchronous and asynchronous access to the entire content repository.
When managing content, versioning and workflows play an essential role for efficient teamwork. Furthermore, an ECMS has to manage structured and unstructured data, as well as multilingual content. Beside this, InterRed Enterprise provides an integrated Business Process Management with the Content Coordination Technology. Thereby, for example, processes, as the translation of content, can be automated or expedited by making use of defined actions for the reaching or leaving of workflow stages. Also external applications and actions can be integrated into the InterRed workflows.
Another aspect of the efficient management of data is the easy, fast and comprehensive research. When using conventional search engines for this, there usually are constraints. They often deliver unsatisfying results, as they work only on the basis of a full-text search.An intelligent solution is provided with the InterRed ContentAgents, which help to purposefully determine information related to a specific topic.
With the help of the content delivery technology, the information of the content repositories can be delivered into various media and formats. An intranet or extranet portal can be created within shortest time due to the integrated functions (rights management, content teaser, navigation structure, search engine, application interface etc.). Enterprise content management at its best.
InterRed Enterprise media-neutrally stores and versions the content. The versioning preserves the history of the content development, as well as of the editing user, thereby making all changes transparent and retraceable. With a visual version comparison all changes are shown clearly structured, supporting quality assurance and associated processes, for example the translation of texts.
InterRed Enterprise can handle large volumes of data, even if these are only available as unstructured data. All data that should be stored are dedicated and automatically made available. When preserving big files (e.g. high-resolution pictures, video and sound files, PDF files), the meta data of these files can be stored in the system for search purposes.
