Evolution of Traditional Enterprise Content Management to Content Services.
The first pillar is dubbed ‘Harvest’ as they state content is not meant to be created then stored in some archive filling up vital storage space never to be seen again. Instead content is meant to be continually updated and added on to provide constant relevant use as information and inspiration for future content. This makes every document into a vital document to a business.
The second pillar is ‘Create’ where Microsoft products allow businesses and creators to use Sharepoint and OneDrive tools like Office Lens and Office 365 to share their creations to their targeted audiences. These tools are supplemented by their unique and useful set of templates and policies that inform creators and aid them in their creative processes.
The third pillar is ‘Coordinate’ where Metadata is consolidated into organized systems that allow easy management and direction of content through tools such as Microsoft Flow and PowerApps, limiting the amount of clicks needed through their tagging and library search tools.
The fourth and final pillar is ‘Protect.’ Microsoft provides the ability to set up “information architecture, auditing, rights management, records and retention labels, and eDiscovery” to efficiently protect your business and its content so you can rest easy knowing your company’s content is securely faceted into your company’s files without the threat of 3rd party invaders.
