#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 bduhon@aiim.org. 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 tweetchat.com. 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.

  • Can SP solve collab and DM problems for larger companies, as well as smaller? Can/does it really scale
