HDM automates business processes and management of transactional content without having to worry about infrastructure, labor and time to market, said Jayakrishnan Sasidharan, vice-president, Portals and Content Management, Wipro Technologies. This results in substantial cost savings for the clients and helps address their specific ECM need of managing transactional content and enhancing business process efficiency, he added.

The HDM solution can be configured to address the content management requirements of wide range of industries and business processes, including financial services, human resources, procurement, legal, manufacturing and real estate applications.
