April 5, 2011 – The Mississippi Department of Transportation has replaced its legacy enterprise content management (ECM) system with a Microsoft SharePoint 2010 solution.

KM World brought this news to our attention in their article, “A more economical ECM solution for MDOT.” This decision was made to cut the cost of licenses and maintenance and in hopes of a better taxonomy and solution designed for the MDOT.

After researching their options, MDOT selected SharePoint 2010. In addition, MDOT chose KnowledgeLake for the document imaging component of its SharePoint 2010 solution to provide a way to move other electronic content to SharePoint for enterprise consumption.

Moving to a solution that offers a better taxonomy is an understandable desire. And getting a better ROI doesn’t hurt either.
