Value of Enterprise Output Management
Plus Technologies started in the print spooler business in 1994. Since then we have continually added to our software portfolio and for the past several years have become a leading vendor in the Enterprise Output Management (EOM) market with our OM Plus products. A recent IDC paper identified the value of EOM in today’s market. Some snippets from their paper include the following.
The proliferation of 3rd Platform technologies (cloud, mobile, big data, and social media) continues to foster significant changes in the ways that employees work with information. Knowledge workers are capturing, creating, consuming, and sharing massive amounts of content across multiple applications and device types, forcing businesses to find a proper balance between the need for information access and protecting business-critical content. Adding to these complexities is the fact that business information is now stored across a host of on-premises and offsite applications and document repositories, including information management systems, content sharing and collaboration solutions, local and network file folders, email, and hardcopy documents.
Information is the lifeblood and the most valued asset of any organization. Through business analytics tools and proper governance, information is now being used and analyzed more effectively for cost management, risk mitigation, operational improvements, and better overall decision making. As a result, businesses are investing in tools, technologies, and resources to facilitate better protection and controlled distribution of corporate information throughout the enterprise. These efforts are often implemented as part of a broader digital transformation initiative.
Not surprisingly, the print infrastructure remains an area of focus for businesses looking to drive operational efficiencies. By simplifying ways to capture, store, and efficiently distribute documents across the enterprise, businesses can realize significant cost and productivity advantages, streamline document workflow, and ensure content security. EOM also known as Output Management solutions provide a platform for advanced document delivery features and functions to help organizations achieve these goals. Enterprise output management technology is the middleware that automates the production, distribution, and management of documents created by applications, thereby aiding businesses in print server elimination, operational advancements, process optimization, modernization of legacy applications, cost reduction, and improved information security.
