#ECMjam: SharePoint and ECM

By Bryant Duhon posted 08-09-2011 12:21


Join us on August 11 from 11-Noon EST for a tweet jam focused on the role of SharePoint as a tool for ECM.

If you "went" to the last one, you know how this works, skip down to the questions. Everyone else, here's how it works.

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 second conversation, we'll discuss "SharePoint and ECM." Our draft list of questions to kick-start the conversation is below. Any ideas or suggestions, please add them below.

Have a question or topic you'd like to talk about either August 11 or at a future date? Respond to this post, send me atweet, or email me at Can’t think of any? Join us on August 11 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.
