As we outlined in our news analysis a few weeks ago, the U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act is going to have wide and deep ripples throughout the Content Engineering space, with institutions continuing to gain much deeper and wider control over their content assets. So far much of the IT-oriented thinking is pointing towards techie improvements such as improved control via content management capabilities and business process analytics. These are real and advisable short-term milestones, but the horizon continues to offer the hope that once the paranoia factor wears off and institutions have a better feel as to the full breadth of their content that they will then be in a far better position to exploit its full value in ways that add directly to the bottom line. So yes, buckle up (it's the law!), but once you're in the driver's seat comfortably, take a good look at the road ahead.
