Transforming Infoglut!
By Brian "Bex" Huff and Andy MacMillan

This book is intended for CIOs, CEOs, and project managers so they can understand what ECM is, how its useful, and why it is desperately needed. It contains what we call a "pragmatic strategy" for Enterprise Content Management:

• Consolidate: Bring as much content as possible into one strategic repository.

• Federate: Extend content management services to existing tactical repositories, when consolidation is not cost effective.

• Secure: Make sure your content is secure, no matter where it exists.

This book describes solutions for existing ECM systems, legacy systems, portals, web applications, and enterprise search. It covers archives, especially email archives, and enterprise wide security beyond the repository. It also covers the retention and destruction of your documents, no matter where they exist within your enterprise.
