Some quick highlights from the ECM Keynote from IOD 11:
Content at rest = Cost... Content in motion = Value. Therefore, our focus is on augmenting systems of record with systems of engagement, unleashing the value of content in motion.
How businesses are using IBM ECM Solutions:
Wells Fargo - Swapnil Salonke - Imaging Services for Wells Fargo and John Murphy, IBM:
Wells Fargo processes around 100 million documents a month, 24x7
Wells Fargo undertook a transformation of their environment driven by a focus on the business value they were delivering to their customers.
Novartis - Scott Bancroft
Dealing with huge amounts of electronic and physical content (and physical content includes not just paper, but things like lab samples)
They have 300 shelf-kilometers of paper (equal to around 50 million pieces of paper)
Their Global master Retention Management System is designed to bring all records together under the same classification system and legally defensible retention policy
It's designed to be managed at a global, country and state level, while also offering flexibility at the local level.
It is very intuitive, with end users requiring only 15 minutes of training out on the site.
Seton Healthcare Family - Dr. David Ramirez
Not for profit healthcare provider in central Texas.
About 1/3 of their patients can't pay for care, and they essentially donate $300M in charity care a year.
They are going to be applying Watson to better treat patients coming in with Congestive Heart Failure. Nationwide, around 50% of CHF cases are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days, and half of that should be avoided.
SEB - Simon Hancorn
SEB is a large Nordic Bank, operating in 10 countries in Europe
They need to keep track of many different types of information under intense time pressure, and handle about 100,000 cases a month across 350 different case types.
Their initial approach was to keep automating their processes, but found that doing so would have taken so much time and expense that they went looking for other options.
They are replacing their workflow engine with IBM Case Manager, now have a new archive based on FileNet P8, and are providing reporting and statistics via IBM Case Manager.
