Content management and distribution services aim to streamline ways of producing, managing, and distributing content. Thus leading to more efficient workflows, integrated asset & rights management, and efficient storage and retrieval of data. This ultimately helps in increasing efficiency, leading to better control over information, and reducing the overall cost of information management for the enterprise. This can also help address a number of paint points such as complex Print/SD centric content process, inadequate workflows and fragmentation, limited content reuse, legal exposure of rights/ contract, lost productivity due to multiple system, manual exchange of data, and high time to market.
