Why should your organization care about the differences between real-time capture and batch capture? Each has a purpose and benefit to an organization, based on the need, information type, and value it represents in relation to operational outcomes.

What exactly does it mean to have an “open platform”? The perception is that an open platform has no restrictions or limitations; an open platform is agnostic. Yet reality is that there could be some limitations or restrictions. For example, there are ECM solutions that are built upon a proprietary database and are still considered to be “open”. The reason being they support a specific set of open standards for interoperability and integration.
