Most ECM systems are not big data systems in and of themselves. There are, however, two ways that big data and ECM systems can work together to provide value to and organization. Working with big data systems, ECM can act as a crucial source of information. And, acting as a platform for business process automation, it can be used as a consumer of big data analytics.
What this means is that the enterprise information that resides in an ECM solution can be harness to provide content for big data analytics. This also means that once that information has been analyzed, it can be used to make an ECM solution smarter, revealing more opportunities for automation and improved decision making.
