Today’s job market is flooded with prospective employees. As soon as an advertisement is placed, there is a deluge of applications. Being faced with such a vast pool of potential employees can be complicated. How do you whittle the field down to a shortlist of the best and brightest who will be the most significant asset to the organization? Even the most experienced HR professionals are faced with this situation and unsure of how to proceed. A gut feeling can wind up taking a heavy  financial toll on the company if the wrong person is selected for the job. The financial investment in an employee becomes a reward when that employ contributes positively ...

Millennials are careful shoppers who will do their own research before they buy anything. Instead of buying things they don’t need, they would rather spend money on experiences and make memories that last a lifetime. The money they spend is usually on products that give them the experiences they’re looking for, whether it’s food, drink, technology or entertainment. Cellphones   Millennials use their cellphones for so many purposes and they tend never to leave their sides. They’re able to use all kinds of apps to manage their health, their budget and more. They’re more likely to own an iPhone than any other generation and these phones have good ...

A little test: The IT documentation you find in companies is up-to-date and reliable, isn’t it? The quality is high and required information is immediately available. Decisions in strategic questions are no problem at all, thanks to intelligent information. This also applies, for example, to decisions on cloud transformations or the integration/separation of IT organizations. Right? Not realistic? And if it is? What if intelligent information does work in IT? Let’s do a thought experiment: Imagine, for example, that your company buys another company and you are responsible for the integration of IT. You don’t have any information about the new IT. How ...

Corporate governance refers to a framework of procedures, policies, and rule that is used to determine the overall performance and direction of the company. Senior executives and board members use this management approach to direct and control an organization. This framework is used because it ensures directives, instructions, and strategies are carried out effectively. On the other hand, compliance is a term used to describe the process through which businesses showcase they’ve conformed to requirements in contracts, regulations, policies, and laws. Corporate governance and compliance are linked. In fact, they fall under the umbrella term of  governance, ...

If you are like most of us, there is a certain amount of excitement about taking on a records or document management project when your organization has appointed you the project leader. You understand what is to be accomplished but where do you begin? The ECM Industry Standards Working Group 2, Trustworthy Document Management and Assessment created a project phases and activities checklist that will guide you through your project. The Project Phases and Activities Checklist will guide you through six functions in any records or document management project. This checklist is based on International Standards ISO 18829, Document management – Assessing ECM/EDRM ...

Kevin Craine hat auf der AIIM Webseite http://bit.ly/AIIMdefinitionIIM einen neuen Versuch gestartet, IIM Intelligent Information Management zu definieren. Leider geht dieser Versuch ins Leere, da er nur neue Schlagworte aus dem Analysten-Umfeld als Bestandteile von IIM deklariert. in zahlreichen Beiträgen hatten wir uns im PROJECT CONSULT Blog (http://bit.ly/IDrUKff-IIM) versucht dem Thema zu nähern - von der Fortführung der Strategie von ECM bis hin zum universellen Informationsmanagement-Begriff. (PROJECT CONSULT Bog http://bit.ly/IIM-def).   Craine postet auf Twitter AIIM-Nachrichten und schreibt den einen oder anderen Artikel im AIIM-Umfeld. ...

Am 12.3.1989 stellt Tim Berners-Lee seine Idee vom Internet beim CERN vor https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Wide_Web; https://www.w3.org/History/1989/proposal.html. Dies ist das offizielle Datum der Geburt des Internets. TBL veröffentlichte seinen Vorschlag übrigens unter der Überschrift "Information Management: A Proposal". Inzwischen sieht auch Berners-Lee die Weiterentwicklung des WWW kritisch. In einem offenen Brief an Geburtstag schreibt TBL: "Der Kampf für das Web ist eines der wichtigsten Anliegen unserer Zeit. ... Angesichts der Artikel über den Missbrauch des Webs ist es verständlich, dass viele Leute sich sorgen und unsicher sind, ob das Web ...

The €50 million fine levied last week by the French National Commission on Informatics and Liberty (CNIL) against Google for violations of the GDPR has struck the tech industry with a resounding thunderclap, sending shockwaves that are being felt in boardrooms across the globe.  As the first significant penalty imposed against a major multinational technology company under the EU’s new GDPR regime, the hefty fine is widely viewed as a shot across the bow in the coming struggle between privacy regulators and big data aggregators about the scope of conduct that will be permitted under the new rules.  While surely intended as an instructive example to set the ...

Das Übernahmen-Karussell dreht sich zum Jahresanfang: Opentext, Kofax & Dropbox kaufen strategisch ein ( http://bit.ly/AcquisitionsFeb19 ). OpenText übernimmt Catalyst Repository Systems Inc. ( http://bit.ly/OT-Catalyst ), so die Meldung am 31.1.2019. Das Jahr in Punkto Übernahmen also gut los. Die Klientel von Catalyst sind Rechtsabteilungen und Anwaltsfirmen. Dort ist Catalyst mit Analytics, eDiscovery, Process Automation, AI Artificial Intelligence und ML Machine Learning gut unterwegs.

RPA steht für Robotic Process Automation ( http://bit.ly/KNOWLEDGELAKE ). Dieses Akronym und dieser Begriff tauchen in 2018 immer häufiger auf. So z.B. auch bei der jüngsten Firmenübernahme in den USA. Der Anbieter KnowledgeLake übernimmt RatchetSoft ( http://bit.ly/knowledgeLake ). Eine kleinere Übernahme und kleinere Unternehmen, die zudem schon seit Jahren eng zuarbeiteten. Interessant ist aber, dass RatchetSoft explizit als RPA-Anbieter ausgewiesen wird. Sieht man sich ältere Versionen der Ratchetsoft-Webseite an, so sind diese zunächst als Anbieter für eine Integrationsplattform, dann ging es um den "Ratchet-X Magic Button" und 2017 wurde aus dem Magic ...

Am 28.1.2019 ist wieder Data Protection Day (https://www.coe.int/en/web/data-protection/data-protection-day) ... nunmehr seit einigen Jahren zusammen mit dem Data Privacy Day. Nun gut, Data Protection ist eine wichtige Funktion auch für Data Privacy, obwohl Data Protection noch ganz andere Themen abdeckt. Seit der GDPR / DSGVO hat auch dieser Tag als Data Privacy Day international an Bedeutung gewonnen. Gerade wenn sich mehr und mehr die Erkenntnis zeigt, dass man kaum alle Anforderungen des Datenschutzes im Unternehmen wirklich vollkommen umsetzen kann. Dies schafft Unbehagen, zumal bereits zahlreiche sehr kostenträchtige Urteile auf Grund von Verstößen gegen ...

Das Thema Selbstdokumentation bei Software, zumindest von Aufbewahrungs-, Records-Management- und Archivierungssystemen, wurde in der Branche weitgehend ignoriert. Nur wenige Anbieter, und dann auch nur Projekt-orientiert, setzten auf diese Funktionalität. Es klingt zwar logisch, dass doch das System, alle seine zugehörigen Daten und Konfigurationen geordnet ausgibt und selbst verwaltet, aber gerade bei älteren Architekturen macht es halt Arbeit. Und wenn dann noch solche "automatisch verwaltete Verfahrensdokumentationen als elektronische Akte" kostenfrei mitgeliefert sollen, dann sinkt das Interesse beim Anbieter. Und so werkeln tausende von Anwenderorganisationen ...
