If wikipedia is to be believed then my guess is archiving, desktop
integration and scanning is perhaps what's missing?
"New product suites have arisen from the combination of capture,
search and networking capabilities with technologies of the content
management field, which have traditionally addressed digital
archiving, document management and workflow. Generally speaking, this
is when content management becomes enterprise content management. The
different nomenclature is intended to encompass all of the problem
areas related to the use and preservation of information within an
organization, in all of its forms — not just its web-oriented face to
the outside world."
I know systems like TRIM handle imaging and archiving etc which plone
doesn't normally integrate with. Sharepoint integrates with exchange
and desktop sharing in ways Plone doesn't do as comprehensively.
Anyone familiar with Alfresco know what it can do that Plone doesn't
that qualifies as ECM?
