Common content management tasks include importing content or editing a document. Organizations have to deal with the proliferation of content in all formats. They are turning to content management solutions to maximize communication, improve efficiencies, and meet regulatory compliance. XML is the standard

Effectively managing how and when content is re-purposed for Web sites can be a complex process. A large number of contributors, spread throughout the organization creates complexity. The problem is magnified when considering that this content is constantly being modified.

Content management supports information used internally by the enterprise. Sales data or product specifications can be tracked. Externally content provided to customers through a Web site can be managed by the enterprise. The content software manages Web pages, word processing documents, spreadsheets, HTML, XML, PDF, document images, email messages and other electronic content.

Content management supports enterprise content management software that does processing, communicating, and gathering information within the organization and from third parties.

Content management products are marketed to a diverse group operating in a broad range of industries. Customers include established companies migrating their operations online. Enterprise and service provider companies need content management.

Companies whose objective it is to deploy and manage critical business content across their organization represent target markets for content management. These customers typically consider the web and their web operations to be critical to their future success.

Content management markets at $1 billion in 2003 are expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2009. Market growth is tied to the transfer of the paper based enterprise to an enterprise that manages all information electronically.
