In January 2002, GiantSteps president Bill Rosenblatt coined the term Enterprise Content Integration (ECI). ECI is a new approach to content management at the enterprise level of large, diversified content providers. It emphasizes integration of separate, heterogeneous systems over the traditional Digital Asset Management approach of building a single large repository containing all of the company's content.

ECI reflects the current reality of diversified content companies that have already built various types of content-storing systems, including databases and file servers, at business unit or departmental levels. Rather than tear these systems down and start all over again with an expensive, long-duration, and risky project, the ECI approach lets you build functionality on top of what you have that results in real business benefits and costs a fraction as much.

Several large media companies have embarked on ECI implementation projects, and various tools from vendors are available to assist media companies with ECI deployment.
