I read with interest a recent post on SaaS and ECM. Of interest is the comments around integration with existing systems meaning that SaaS would not be a route to go for companies. Is this really true? Is there not a way in which ECM can be delivered as SaaS which also enables users to integrate the solution with their systems. I guess Alan was thinking that ECM and SaaS would be delivered through an interface which users would interact with, in which case I would agree. However if we approach this another way, where the client system interacts with the ECM software through services, then there is a case that ECM does become part of the platform which they interact with, albeit hosted remotely. Of course there are numerous challenges to this approach, too many for me to answer right now. I will have a think how this would work and post back, but we do need to be more creative in the changing times to try and meet more flexible requirements, not just functional.
