Many companies start using SharePoint and Office 365 for collaboration, workflow, building portals / intranets and document / records management.
Some companies have a separate, legacy ECM system for archiving scanned documents or for records management. Increasingly however, these organizations realize that SharePoint also provides robust and innovative document and records management features, such as:
- Managed Metadata
- Lookup columns
- Business Connectivity columns
- Document Sets
- Content Type inheritance
- Modern Library experience
- Retention Policies
- Data Loss Prevention policies (compliance)
As they realize the depth of SharePoint’s ECM functionality, CIOs love that they can consolidate the number of systems they need to support by leveraging SharePoint as a robust document management platform as well.
