Last week Document Strategy published my article, ECM or Content Services? What Is the Big Deal? It looks at why many practitioners, including myself, are not accepting Gartner’s opinion to change the term Enterprise Content Management (ECM) to Content Services. Many of us have been saying that ECM has been changing over the years, especially the concept of a single repository. Forrester has been looking at ECM in two flavors of Content Services “ Business ” and “ Transactional ” for at least two years. The question is not if ECM is changing, every good technology will change over time. The question is should we change...

... the term Content Services is no good replacement or successor although AIIM, Forrester, Gartner, IBM and others try to position it as the new direction of the industry in 2017 ( http://www.project-consult.de/in_der_diskussion/gartner_ersetzt_ecm_durch_content_services ). Content Services is about technology and functionality and not about strategies and methods. It has no vision, it is not sexy at all. The term is a step backwards. The term is used in the web content & marketing industry for service offerings to create or distribute content. The term leads the industry to a niche, a backwater. ECM always had the ambition to be as important as acronym...

Implementing and achieving the right goals are the backbone of every business, large or small. As technology changes, so does the path that is taken to reach those goals. What is still common practice to many is beginning to fall behind the curve of competition. Similarly, those with the right tools may not be using them to their full capabilities. These are some simple ways to reach your goals and maximize the potential of your ROI. Lists and whiteboard diagrams are a great way to materialize and express ideas. That is, unless you are short on time, energy, or away from the office. Considering this is the case for many businesses, it’s easy to see how...

Eine Frage kommt immer wieder hoch: welche Relevanz haben internationale Studien zum Information Management Markt in Deutschland. So auch wieder bei unserem Update Information Management 2017 (Stuttgart kann noch gebucht werden: http://bit.ly/S01_17S ). Welche Aussagen kann man aus den Quadranten von Gartner, den Waves von Forrester, den Grids von G2Crowd und all den anderen internationalen Trendaussagen ableiten? (Quelle: http://bit.ly/StudienRelevanz ) Hier gilt es zunächst einmal die demografischen Daten zu eruieren, die leider nicht bei allen Studien offen gelegt werden. Anzahl der Befragten, Art der Fragen, Kriterien, Methodik, Region, Größe...

Reduce, reuse, recycle- the three R’s we have all learned to understand and act upon in our everyday lives. This phrase remains relevant to many situations, but most importantly, your business. How can you implement this phrase within your specific business? When your office reduces the amount of paper consumed and accumulated in the office, it not only benefits the environment, but your business as well. Excessive paper consumption is a nation wide problem. School and office environments make up the leading producers of paper products due to constant printing and copying. Additionally, every year more than 300 million tons of paper will be produced...

Michael Woodbridge von Gartner hat es nun offiziell gemacht - Gartner ersetzt für ihre Studien und den Quadranten den Begriff ECM Enterprise Content Management durch Content Services. " ECM is Dead !". Macht dies Sinn? Wir hatten schon vor einiger Zeit über Diskussionen bereichtet, was denn nun in Zukunft bei Gartner aus ECM wird. Der Begriff "Content Services" taucht bereit im Bericht zum ECM Magic Quadrant auf ( http://bit.ly/ECM-MQ-revisited ) und verschiedenen Diskussionen ( http://bit.ly/GartnerHC16 ) auf. In seinem Blogbeitrag ( bit.ly/Gartner-ECM ) führt Woodbridge eine Reihe von Gründen auf, so z.B. <Zitat> ... ECM...

Metadata is a key factor in the success of all software systems, and this is especially true with records and information management (RIM) software. Without certain kinds of metadata, the RIM system is like a library without indexing – a great place for storing things, but ultimately useless because people cannot locate what they are looking for. Because metadata plays such a significant role in RIM systems, we need to have a clear grasp of what it does – and what it can do – before going ahead with an implementation. What is metadata? Metadata is often described as "data that provides information about other data" (according to...

Anyone in an office can testify how easy it is for a workplace to go from clean and serene, to messy and hectic. Desks are cluttered with supplies, there’s a line to use the printer, and people are on the move; it’s frustrating. Many businesses are overcoming these limitations by going digital. Some of the advantages may be obvious, others may come as a pleasant surprise. But, where do you start? It’s time to clear up that desk. It’s easy to replace the pile of papers sitting on the corner of the desk, and the maze of files and folders in the drawer. Simple tools like email, external hard drives, and cloud based computing...

I originally posted this in 2013, but amazingly enough, it is still relevant ast week I had the fortunate opportunity to work Fred Pagoni from Colortrac, a colleague for over 15 years. We have both been involved in the “large format” industry. It’s amazing that with so much experience how you can still teach each other about the tricks and tips. We all find better ways to do things; we just need to share them. While training on the latest model of Colortrac Scanners, my staff asked Fred technical questions. He gave us new insight to how to work faster and more efficiently while getting the best results. I had to share these...

It’s no surprise to hear that pollution from manufacturing and waste has a direct and negative impact on the environment. Everything from paper clips to fax machines are contributors to the problem. Many businesses are stuck between a rock and a hard place; they’re trying to minimize their effect on the environment, while providing maximum productivity for both their consumers and employees. One of the largest culprits adding to environmental damage and waste is also one of the easiest to replace: paper. Let’s take a look at how much of an impact paper production and waste has on the environment, and how simple it can be to be part of the...

Why Prepare? The average total organizational cost of a data breach in the United States in 2015 was $6.8 million. [1] In 2016 alone, over 3,000 publicly disclosed data breaches have occurred so far, representing more than 2.2 billion compromised records. [2] In addition to the upfront expenses, the damage to an organization’s reputation and goodwill can be immense and long-lasting, potentially presenting an existential risk to its future. In the notable case of the data breach at Ashley Madison, hackers exposed spousal infidelity that prompted a $567 million class action lawsuit, [3] demonstrating the potentially devastating impacts...

For companies that operate in international jurisdictions, it is vital to stay up-to-date on legislative actions that affect data retention policies and compliance. This allows companies to make internal adjustments as necessary and to avoid costly sanctions and other harmful penalties for non-compliance. Here are just a few upcoming laws worth noting: European Union – General Data Protection Regulation: In May of 2016, EU policy makers implemented a comprehensive legislative reform of personal data protection rules. Going into effect on May 25, 2018, it places a high standard of protection on personal data held by companies by regulating the collection,...

This month's post is written by my MWD Advisors colleague, Craig Wentworth . The Watson brand has exerted a heavy gravitational pull on IBM’s promotion across a wide range of its products and services for some time now. At this week’s World of Watson event in Las Vegas IBM showed the most compelling presentation of the story I’ve seen so far of how the company’s machine learning services are being woven into the fabric of its offerings. A critical mass of support (through platform availability, specialised datasets, and domain knowledge born of strategic acquisitions) has finally built up around Watson. We’re still just...

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.

Auch 2013 gab es zahlreiche virtuelle und Onsite-Veranstaltungen. 2014 wurde dann der World Paper Free Day durch die AIIM von Oktober...
