As Big Data & Analytics continues to drive new efficiencies and create value, the definition of the “knowledge workers” is broadening to include all users in your organization and the inclusion of content in a wide variety of your solutions is becoming increasingly more critical.

“Big Data” includes a tremendous amount of content and it’s this content that the Line of Business (LOB), IT departments and the CIO need to work together to provide new ways to collaborate and engage and manage it for users anywhere they need to be productive, make better decisions, and deliver better business outcomes.

Last week, IBM announced a bold and new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution called IBM Navigator on Cloud. IBM Navigator on Cloud is designed to make us knowledge workers more productive and effective by providing a better way to engage with others, manage, and synchronize the content that not just knowledge workers, but that we all need across the web, mobile and desktop devices we use everyday.

This solution is based on the same Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technology, including the leading mobile experience in the content industry, which Gartner, IDC and other analyst firms have once again recognized as the undisputed market leader. IBM Navigator on Cloud demonstrates our investment in the future that will create even more separation from the competition.

The introduction of IBM Navigator on Cloud not only enhances ECM’s leadership, it also strengthens IBM’s overall Big Data & Analytics offerings. The Big Data & Analytics portfolio exists to help clients deliver competitive advantage through content and data. IBM Navigator on Cloud makes it even easier for clients to exploit the content that fuels their most critical work and processes.

I am pleased to share that today IBM announced the first of the next phase of IBM ECM solutions: IBM Navigator on Cloud, a flexible software-as-a-service (SaaS) ECM solution with a light deployment model.

Here are a few things you should know about this new solution:

  • We have designed this solution to address the need for a trusted and secure platform that can be used by both knowledge workers and IT to ensure confidence when working with confidential and customer information.
  • For our customers implementing IBM Navigator on Cloud, the consistent, familiar interface of the ECM Experience Platform, including IBM Content Navigator, will significantly reduce skills training and increase user adoption.
  • The reach for this solution is worldwide and IBM Navigator on Cloud is available on SoftLayer’s global data centers.
  • In addition, with the use of the open and industry standard Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) API, our clients and Business Partners can create new applications as well as extend investments through integration with existing systems.

We have a lot more to come on this exciting new endeavor from IBM ECM. Look for further information on this launch in the coming days and find more information on the web page.
