Jamming on ECM

By Bryant Duhon posted 07-08-2011 13:07


Join us on July 14 from 11-Noon EST for a tweet jam focused on putting content to work.

Allow me to elucidate.

What’s a Tweet Jam
Musicians jam together by riffing off of a common theme; playing off of each other to create something unique and learning from each other as they do. With Twitter, we can do the same, 140 characters at a time. A tweet jam is a fast-paced conversation around a topic. It is simply a time and a place to gather on Twitter around a hashtag topic and learn from each other. Anyone can ask, or answer, a question.

What’s the AIIM ECM Jam (#ECMjam)?
Simple really: ECM is, to understate it, somewhat complex. We want to get together regularly (we’ll do this every other week), kick around ideas/strategy/tips/suggestions/tools/trends, and emerge a little bit more knowledgeable at the other end of the hour. While we know it’s only 140 characters at a time, we want to generate questions and discussions about how to REALLY make the ECM work.

For our first conversation, we'll discuss "ECM, still relevant or not?" Our draft list of questions to kick-start the conversation is below.

Have a question or topic you'd like to talk about either July 14 or at a future date? Respond to this post, send me atweet, or email me at Can’t think of any? Join us on July 14 and let the conversation spark ideas for you.

How Do I “Watch?”
It’s easy. Log in to Twitter (or your favorite Twitter front end; I like Hootsuite). Then use the hashtag #ECMjam to follow the discussion. The best way I’ve found to follow one of these is Sign in using your twitter handle, type #ECMjam into the box at the top of the screen, and tweetchat will follow the discussion – best of all, without you having to remember to put in the hashtag every time you write a new tweet.

Confirmed Panelists

In no particular order, a draft list of questions for the jam.

  • ECM, still relevant or not?
  • Is ECM just for large companies?
  • Does SharePoint's prevalence and "good enough" approach eliminate need for ECM?
  • Is the overall commodization of Content Management making this all a non-issue?

Save the date. July 14. Thursday. 11 EST
