2020 brings another year of all of you looking to have to upgrade-or-migrate. In the content world alone, that includes examples like:
- IBM FileNet P8 – End of support was April 2019. Did you know that?
- IBM CMOD v 9.5 – End of support is April 30, 2020
- Perceptive Content 7.1.5 – Support ends August 1, 2020
- Microsoft SharePoint 2010 – Extended support ends October 13, 2020
And that is just the document repositories. The list is 10x longer if you consider needing to upgrade other fundamental pieces of the architecture like operating systems and relational databases.
As 95% of you have access to Office 365 or Google Suite (which both come with extensive ECM capabilities) the savings are HUGE and every CIO and CFO is looking to squeeze maximum value from these subscriptions. Some have discovered best-in-breed options like the BOX platform that brings a very elaborate set of capabilities around security and process automation. But everyone has >5 (or even more than 10) different content vendors peppering their data center landscape.
The TIME IS NOW to assess what you have, appreciate that 70% of it is probably ROT (redundant, obsolete and trivial), 20% is ‘questionable’ and the final 10% is important and to put it where it makes sense.HOW?
