Firms still spending on ECM

Expenditure on enterprise content management technology is holding up, despite lower costs per-seat.

Expenditure on enterprise content management technology is holding up, despite lower costs per-seat.

AIIM Europe, the enterprise content management (ECM) industry association, has released expenditure figures from its roadshow attendees in five UK cities last month.

AIIM said sales were holding steady despite general falling costs per-seat. Whilst 19% of respondents said their organisation has an anticipated total spend in the next 12 months of over £200,000, the anticipated spend of 8% of respondents is in excess of £1m.

A further 41% have budgets of between £10,000 and £200,000. These figures match last year’s survey results to within 1% or 2%, said AIMM.

Document management, records management and forms capture remain the products of most interest, said AIMM, followed by e-mail management and workflow.

The associated technologies of collaboration, web content management, invoice processing, digital mailroom and enterprise search were all on the shopping list of at least one in five roadshow visitors, which totalled 1,100 across the five cities.

The 2008 AIIM Roadshow will visit Glasgow, Bolton, Coventry, Bristol and London in late April and early May.
