#ECMjam: Mobile Content and ECM

By Bryant Duhon posted 08-25-2011 16:00


Join us on September 1 from 11-Noon EST for a tweet jam focused on how ECM enables mobile content.

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 "How ECM and Enterprise 2.0/Social Business intersect." 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 sept. 1 or at a future date? Respond to this post, send me atweet, or email me at Can’t think of any? Join us on Sept. 1 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. Suggestions and/or alterations to these are welcomed.

1.    What’s a mobile device for purposes of this conversation? Does a laptop count? What if it has a mouse? And, are all devices created equal beyond email access?
2.    What is the key difference between Mobile Content Mgmt & “normal” Content Mgmt?
3.    Where does Mobile Content Mgmt fit in with an #ECM Strategy?
4.    What business problems is Mobile Content Mgmt primed to solve/What can you use a mobile device to do?
5.    Beyond receipts, what can mobile capture do?
6.    Is this a cloud-only phenomenon? Can legacy products extend their reach to mobile devices?
7.    Do you have to have an App to be providing Mobile Content Mgmt?

Save the date. Sept 1. Thursday. 11 EST

Follow the hashtag: #ECMjam. Get out your smart phones; see you then.
