The core technologies that let us build, share and access information are becoming application infrastructure. Superpower vendors are vying for enterprise dominance. Navigate the changing marketplace and make this convergence work for your enterprise.   Key issues include: - What key trends are shaping the future of content management, portals, and collaboration? - What enterprise architectures will support this convergence and which ones won't? - How can you make convergence pay off for your company? · Enterprise Content Management Unmasked - The term "enterprise content management" (ECM) has been the latest rallying term for an industry in turmoil. The vagueness of the term has created a lot of confusion in the user community: ECM fervor is built on the concept of reducing the number of point solutions, improved compliance, and vertical process automation, buying from a viable strategic vendor, and leveraging content across multiple applications. ECM suite vendors must yet prove that the integrated products they offer actually translate into lower total cost of ownership, lower cost of deployment, improved ease-of-use, or better overall functionality. · Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance - CIO’s face an avalanche of requests to achieve transparency and compliance with international, federal, and state rules such as Sarbanes-Oxley. The level of confusion about which vendors offer what and what exactly it is good for is growing.    Key issues include: - What are the priorities for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, and how do they translate into technology? - What is the role of IT in Sarbanes-Oxley compliance? - What vendors offer the best compliance solutions?
