Whether used for project oversight, legal or regulatory compliance, digital marketing initiatives or the sharing of best practices, organizations are looking to get the most out of their content. Every day, enterprise users generate seemingly endless streams of content, but they face hurdles in trying to access what they need in a timely fashion, according to a recent survey from the American Productivity and Quality Center (APQC). It would help to have more enterprise-driven, centralized systems in place. However, a great deal of organizations store content in multiple locations that aren't connected by a central interface or search capability, findings reveal. On the positive side, many companies are investing in cloud, mobile and video tech innovation to better manage and distribute content. And a notable number are custom-building their own software to meet their needs. Nearly 500 professionals took part in the research. APQC is a member-based nonprofit that helps global organizations improve productivity and quality through business benchmarking, best practices and knowledge management research.
