Keeping up with the endless technology terminology feels a lot like keeping up with the Jones. It is a moving target. Solutions Review brought this topic to us in their article, “Data Management vs. Content Management; What’s the Difference?

Loosely-defined terms and industry-specific vernacular can muddy the waters. It may seem trivial, but properly defining enterprise technology solutions and the associated terminology has real-world implications.

At the intersection of big data and business analytics lies data management. Traditional data warehousing techniques are slowly being phased out with the adoption of data lakes, and cloud connectivity has emerged as a differentiating factor in a growing number of deployments.

Content management platforms have many goals. They aim to accomplish regulatory compliance and risk management, retention and dissemination of business knowledge, and cost and process efficiencies. Content services have less of a focus on content storage for the enterprise, and instead, focus on how the content is used by individuals and teams. It then uses that information to gain insight into business operations.
