Neocol recently announces partnerships, solutions templates and accelerators and a means of taking the risk out of helping any sized organization better go through their own digital process transformation. With a 15 year history in enterprise content management (ECM), Neocol brings that understanding and critical success factors to help organizations take advantage of new content services, platforms and components. Traditional ECM focused on bringing a complex stack of technology and capabilities focusing on taking paper out of the organization, automating work and better complying to laws, regulations and legal actions. The sum of the piece parts required significant internal resources and a high cost and risk with 75% of all installs failing or never realizing their potential (footnote 1). The amount of R/D investment in new cloud-based offerings, the continued reduction in the cost of computing components (CPU, memory, storage and network) and the advancing of modern integration capabilities has hit the inflection point. There is a new level of flexibility and access like never before to organizations to better empower their work processes and the applicable documents.
"As a longtime information management veteran and having spent 30 years working for organizations like Informix, FileNet, IBM, Mediabeacon and most recently EMC Documentum organizations cannot justify these big-iron purchases from the legacy vendors," states Tom Rieger, Vice President of Strategy at Neocol. "I was one of the first to say 'BULL' to Gartner when they stated that 'Death of ECM and Birth of Content Services' (footnote 2). But after further research and reviewing the art-of-the-possible with a new set of organizations and capabilities, a need to foster and accept cloud-based services really do help any organization transform into better servicing their customers and with a nimbler set of capabilities – all while lowered cost and risk".
The list of editorials grow in reaffirming the shift for Neocol.

What makes this especially exciting is how we can do prototypes for clients in days and show them what is possible." states Ryan Lott, CEO of Neocol. "The most compelling is when clients understand how easy and inexpensive getting this going is to their budgets.
