Is it time to say goodbye to your legacy ECM system?

If your organization is like many others, you likely have one or more legacy ECM or repository systems that are not only still in service, they actively support your core business processes.

With their outdated technology, dated interfaces and limited integration options, your legacy systems probably already detract from your users’ productivity.

Legacy technology often has many other, less obvious detriments including:

  • Costs of licensing and maintaining legacy software and hardware, such as training administrators and investing in time-consuming custom integrations
  • Security risks due to inadequate or antiquated security features, protocols and access controls
  • Compliance risks , including the inability to automate compliance processes or to provide auditing or reporting that proves compliance
  • Dated, proprietary technology that is not cloud-native and is difficult to extend, integrate and scale
  • Difficulty in finding experts to maintain the aging technology
  • Poor user experience due to unintuitive, complicated interfaces and a lack of support for modern devices, browsers and operating systems

"By going with Hyland instead of upgrading FileNet, we instantly saved $400,000 ... and we evolve the system ourselves at a much lower cost. For instance, developing our current workflow in FileNet would have cost $200,000 more"


Kimberly Wraight, ECM Coordinator at Washtenaw County
