Legacy ECM Replacement (powered by SEAL)

Frequently, traditional ECM (Enterprise Content Management) software is used mainly for unified content repository, archiving and records management, which translates into high maintenance & operational costs and poor user experience. Due to inflexible platforms and lack of advanced records management capabilities we are seeing a surge in the number of unhappy customers and thus huge business opportunity to decommission/replace legacy ECM.


  • Organizations are looking to archive and manage multiple content types;
  • Aging on-premises archiving platforms are being replaced by more modern solutions;
  • Need for decommissioning legacy application while still keeping access to their data with lower costs;
  • Mobile access − access to archived content through a mobile web-based browser (smartphone, tablet, laptop, and so forth) and mobile apps for iOS and Android;
  • Enterprise Content Management Companies have more than 15.000 active and mostly unhappy customers;
  • Legacy ECM losing focus on technology and benefits;
  • Limitations of legacy ECM architectures and poor cloud integration and support (no multi-tenancy, difficult back-up and restore process, difficult automatic failover and failback processes);
  • Archiving as a service (a.k.a. cloud archiving) has rapidly surpassed on-premises archiving;
  • Lack of advanced records management capabilities (WORM, retentions, digital shredding, extra cost for specialized records management capabilities etc.);
  • High maintenance costs with the information archiving platform software maintenance renewals, support contracts and with the document capture component;
  • Extra costs for standard functionalities (viewer, records management functionalities, etc.);
  • Poor user experience for unified content repository, archiving and records management use cases;
  • Poor support for mobility of traditional ECM platforms;
  • Lack of advanced integration with Hitachi Content Platform.
