Two key changes from last year really made me happy: Box’s enterprise customers (at least the ones on the panel during the analyst event) are calling Box content management (advanced content management, even); Box is unequivocally stating that Platform is the base upon which the Box application is built – they weren’t so clear about that last year. On a personal level, the first of those makes me the happiest because, along with Cheryl McKinnon of Forrester (my reaction to Box’s inclusion in the Forrest Wave), I was the first analyst / person-who-should-know type that came out and unabashedly called Box an Enterprise...

In recent years, businesses throughout the world have begun to shift to cloud-based technology for more cost-efficient and resource-efficient IT solutions. At the same time, many businesses have begun developing a greater consciousness of the environmental impact of their operations, leading them to focus more and more on sustainability. This focus is as important in the IT community as elsewhere in the business world, where sustainability is becoming a key performance indicator for many departments. As a result, regulators and corporate sustainability officers are now working on strategies to decrease IT departments’ carbon footprints. Might cloud technology...

Am 19. September 2006 hielt Dr. Ulrich Kampffmeyer, Geschäftsführer von PROJECT CONSULT, auf der DMS EXPO seine Keynote zu "Enterprise Content Management". Passend dazu gab es das dreisprachige Buch zum Thema ECM. Genau 10 Jahre ist es also her - aber den Begriff ECM Enterprise Content Management gibt es natürlich schon länger . 1999 bei Merger der amerikanischen Branchen-Verbände AIIM und IMC galt es bereits eine neue Vision zu definieren, die der Dokumentenmangement-Branche angesichts des Web-Booms neue Horizonte eröffnen sollte. Ende 2000 begann dann AIIM die neue Botschaft ECM Enterprise Content Management zu verbreiten....

(Guest blogger is J. Kevin Parker) Today’s workforce is increasingly distributed, increasingly mobile, and increasingly expecting telework options. This equates to more people working beyond the corporate walls and beyond the corporate IT firewall. But how can organizations offer such flexibility without losing control of their information? Perhaps a more pertinent question is: do you have control of your information now ? In a world of exponentially increasing information volume, velocity, and variety, organizations are swimming in information chaos. The first step to bringing order and control back to corporate information is to develop...

OpenText teilt nun auch offiziell mit, dass das kanadische Unternehmen den Bereich Enterprise Content Management von EMC/DELL, bzw. DELL Technologies, übernehmen wird. http://bit.ly/Opentext-Documentum . Filetstück ist Documentum, einer der großen Wettbewerber von OpenText. Die Bereinigung bei den traditionellen ECM-Anbietern schreitet voran. Der Verkauf der Software-Division von EMC stand schon länger in den Übernahmegesprächen zur Debatte. Es seit April 2016 war klar, dass beim Umfang des EMC/DELL-Deals irgendwie Geld beschafft werden musste. Die Suche, wer diesen dicken Brocken übernehmen kann (Documentum, Captiva und...

Many business professionals aren’t quite sure how to make the business case for records management software. They know the software will provide significant value from an operations, risk, and compliance perspective, but they find it difficult to quantify those benefits. Some of our colleagues have gone down the path of treating RM software as a business expense. In their budget presentations, they position the software as an item of overhead that the records management department requires in order to function. However, this approach significantly under-sells the value of RM software and can lead to the project not being approved. Fortunately, the benefits...

Bis Mitte 2018 müssen alle ISO 9001-zertifizierten Prozesse nach der neuen ISO 9001:2015 ausgelegt und abgenommen werden. Informationsmanagement und Wissensmanagement spielen hierbei neue, wichtige Rollen. Die Vorgaben für Qualität und Prozesse müssen allen Beteiligten zur Verfügung stehen. So erhielt "Wissensmanagement" im Rahmen der ISO 9001:2015 einen neuen Stellenwert. Informationsmanagement-Lösungen unterstützen die Prozesse und sorgen auch für die Überprüfbarkeit. Andererseits hat Information nur dann einen Nutzen, wenn die Qualität der Information stimmt. Das Qualitätsmanagement-Handbuch und die Nachweise der Einhaltung sind zu dem einen eigenes...

Heute am 23.8. wird im Web der #InternautDay gefeiert - 25 Jahre WWW World Wide Web! Herzlichen Dank an Tim Berners-Lee! Am 6.8.1991 hat er für uns das Internet als World Wide Web eröffnet. Ohne "$"-Zeichen in den Augen! Es war ein langer Weg von den Anfängen des ARPANET zum heutigen multimedialen, interaktiven Web. Nun wird am 23.8. jeweils der #InternautDay Internet Day gefeiert. Heute zum 25sten Mal. Etwas verspätet, oder? Eigentlich war es doch der 6.8. - oder? Berners-Lee sprach vom WWW World Wide Web, das das Internet als Grundlage nutzt. Andere nannten es schon damals CyberSpace. Wir nennen es heute nur noch das Web. Heute...

Research by the International Data Corporation (IDC), published in a report entitled “Are your business processes stifling your market opportunity? Cost-efficient print and document management through smart MFPs”, has revealed a number of crucial workplace trends. Businesses and their work environments are evolving, with recent years showing huge increases in the volume of data received by businesses. The IDC predicts that this growth in data access capability and delivery will continue into future years, occurring at rates yielding approximately six-fold increases every five years . While this vast trove of data can be an incredible resource for businesses,...

Am 4. November 2016 ist wieder ‪#‎WPFD‬ World Paper Free Day der AIIM http://bit.ly/WPFD_2016 Letztes Jahr war es etwas "ruhig" um diese Initiative geworden. Es geht um das "papierlose Büro", um die allgegenwärtige Digitalisierung. 2010 gab es zum ersten Mal den Versuch mit dem griffigen World Paper Free Day die Bekanntheit der ECM-Branche voran zubringen. 2011 und 2012 fand der #WPFD auf der DMS EXPO - es gab Gadgets, Twitter-Jams, Vorträge und eigener Webseite zum Thema. Auch 2013 gab es zahlreiche virtuelle und Onsite-Veranstaltungen . 2014 wurde dann der World Paper Free Day durch die AIIM von Oktober auf November verlegt. Damals gab es...

Anyone who’s been paying attention lately, or who has met me in person, knows that I’m fairly passionate about Information Management and Craft Beer. Depending on the day, my passion for one is slightly higher than my passion for the other. What does one have to do with the other? I’m glad you asked. Please bear with me, this may take a while. Three things happened that resulted in a new vision for me: In late June at a networking event in Calgary I met Chris. Chris is one of the co-founders of Caravel Craft Brewery in Calgary. Over a couple pints of IPA from Last Best Brewing , Chris and started chatting about beer. It turns out that we both love...

The future of document management is tied to the evolution of digital technologies. In 1965, Gordon Moore , co-founder of Intel, predicted that advances in technology would cause computing power to double every two years. This principle, known as Moore’s Law , has held true for over fifty years, demonstrating the incredible rate at which technology is becoming more and more powerful. Moore’s Law is unlikely to change any time soon; as we move through 2016, computing abilities continue to advance at an astounding pace. With the rapid evolution of digital technology, business practices are in a state of perpetual change, and the needs of businesses are...

Die aktuelle Ausgabe des G2 Crowd "ECM Quadranten", sprich das Grid für Enterprise Content Management 2016 ist veröffentlicht. Neben den Positionen der "üblichen Verdächtigen" gibt es doch die eine oder andere Überraschung und einiges Stirnrunzeln: http://bit.ly/ECMgrid2016 Das G2 Crowd Grid wird nicht von Analysten (z.B. IDG, Gartner, Forrester u.a.) erstellt, sondern ergibt sich aus den Angaben von Anwendern. Die 2016er Version findet sich hier: http://bit.ly/G2CrowdECM2016 . Bereits im vergangenen Jahr hatten wir erstmals das ECM Grid vorgestellt und im Vergleich mit anderen Studien diskutiert: http://bit.ly/G2Crowd_Grid . Die Werte (Scores)...

Der letzte Freitag im Juli ist immer "Admin Day" - System Administrator Appreciation Day (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Administrator_Appreciation_Day) - dieses Jahr also der 29.07.2016. Wir sind zu 100% von der Verfügbarkeit und Richtigkeit elektronischer Information abhängig. Administratoren, Supervisoren, Helpdesk-Mitarbeiter und viele andere im Hintergrund unserer IT spielen eine wichtige Rolle, Information nutz- und zugreifbar zu halten. Zumindest an einem tag im Jahr sollte man diese wichtige Rolle würdigen und sich bei den Administratoren bedanken. Dies ist um so wichtiger als die Administratoren häufig ein sehr negatives Eigenbild ihrer...

It's widely acknowledged now that the biggest challenge in achieving a successful social collaboration implementation is getting people to use it. I write regularly about the importance of having a "big picture" strategy for driving adoption, but if you are tasked with bringing this about in practice it's also useful to have some practical, immediately actionable ideas for ways to get people interested and engaged on your new social collaboration platform. Here are a few examples I've come across in talking to organisations for my case studies in this space. Post news and announcements on the platform instead of emailing. One...

AIIM just relaunched the Certified Information Professional (CIP) Program. This program is a good thing for the ECM (Enterprise Content Management) ecosystem, but it needs support from ECM vendors and their partners. Why should vendors and partners care? I’ll give you three reasons and they all involve saving and making money. 1. CIP Cuts Internal Training Costs Having CIP certification means that the individual already understands the basics of being a Certified Information Professional. A hiring manager can expect the person to already know what it means to manage information in an organization using standard terminology. This gets...

How can an employee make decisions with all the data and documents in raw form? Sometimes waiting for an IT report isn’t an option. That’s where business intelligence comes into play (BI). BI software analyzes raw data from enterprise systems to improve decision making, cut costs and identify new business opportunities . Content Analysis is where business intelligence meets document management. It is the bringing together of these two separate disciplines for more streamlined access and representations of your data. By allowing companies to merge these two systems, they can access text data and past consumer interactions they have recorded to see future...

Back in March I was already telling the ECM industry that they were not alone. I was researching a trend where I thought vendors were emerging that offered out-of-the-box back office content solutions that were being sold directly to business users. I expected to find a few examples in each content-rich core business areas. What I found in quick searches were half a dozen vendors. In deeper dives of specific solutions I found dozens of vendors. It seems like every time I turn on my computer I find more vendors. Looking at Contract Life Cycle Management (CLM), I found vendors like CobbleStone Systems , Conga , and Exari . In Accounts Payable,...
