ECM3 has found a new home!
ECM3 is without a doubt the most successful maturity model for ECM with downloads of the model passing the 5,000 mark recently. The fact that it was a work of love by ourselves at Real Story Group and the good folk at Wipro, given as a pure open source model to the community has probably been a key reason for the success – but I hope the real reason for the success is the depth and quality of the model.
So how to top success with more success? Well we have decided to merge efforts with the famous MIKE2.0 model. This is also open source and free to use, and is the de-facto maturity model for structured data, our hope is that by adding our work to MIKE2.0 that we can spread the love even further and not only reach into the structured data world, but also help raise the profile and importance of ECM in this parallel universe ;-)
The ECM3 site will remain and you can continue to download and use the model from here. But we do encourage you to also check out http://mike2.openmethodology.org/ as well.
Our thanks for all the support to date – in particular the outstanding work and contribution to the model by Apoorv Durga and Dave Smigiel – and here’s to the next chapter in ECM3 history!
