Are you looking into cloud information management (CIM) systems and getting confused?
In fact, I just signed up for the Novell Vibe service and it took less than five minutes before I was actually on my own site and ready to work. ( http://tinyurl.com/6z9fpl8 ) As an interesting side note, I was looking into a cloud-based collaboration application and looked in the Contact Information and couldn’t find a physical address – only phone and email
John will present “Information to Action” on April 3 at 3. To wrap up #AIIM14, John will focus on how you can turn information into action. Why is information so important? What’s information chaos (#infochaos) got to do with your business?
