What is cloud content?

Cloud content is all the unstructured and structured content you store, access, and share using cloud services. Today, more and more content is held in cloud content management systems. This enables users and teams to access content and send files more easily, from anywhere and any device, without being restricted by firewalls or access to local servers.

What is the “content” in a content management system?

Content in a content management system includes all the files and information that power important business processes in your organization. In a content management system, all kinds of files — Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDFs, images, video files, recordings, transcripts — are made accessible so you can edit, collaborate, and send to the right people at the right time.

Why is content so important?

The files in any company’s content management system contain valuable information like sales contracts, budget spreadsheets, training videos, sales materials, and customer records. This data is critically important to your business processes, and it’s also important to keep secure.

What does content management mean?

More content is being accessed and shared on mobile devices than ever before. Cloud Content Management addresses how that content is managed, protected, governed, and used to enable workflow within and beyond an organization. It includes file sharing, storage, organization of files, access and permission control, and the ability to allow multiple people to work together simultaneously.

What is an enterprise content management system?

An enterprise content management system is what companies use to store, access, share, and send files related to key business processes. Cloud-based content management systems leverage cloud services, which allow users and teams to access files from anywhere, on any device, without firewalls or access to local servers getting in the way.
