[Guest Post] Infosecurity: 3 Industry Trends to Follow

Jun 21, 2018 10:30:00 AM by Tanya Brooks

In light of recent events, we can all agree that information security has been criminally overlooked on some major fronts across most industries. Absolutely mind-boggling attacks on major corporations like Sony, Yahoo and Equifax have consecrated InfoSec in the most frightening way possible. It is entirely possible that InfoSec had been given the resources it needed in those conditional circumstances but, given the unmitigated damage and lack of response, it is beyond fair to say that InfoSec may not have been a high priority. The benefit, if any, of these attacks is that they cemented the need for InfoSec in all businesses of all sizes.

Seeing Through the Haze to Leverage the Power of the Cloud

May 30, 2018 9:28:00 AM by Alan Pelz-Sharpe

If we were to believe everything we hear in the press, then all computing and data storage is moving to the cloud — and quickly! The reality, though, is more nuanced. Firstly, there is no singular cloud; instead, there are hundreds of clouds to choose from. Secondly, not everything is moving to the cloud, and even the stuff that is, is moving slowly. The world of Information Management has been somewhat slow and reluctant to move to the cloud, and often with good reason.

RPA - Is it the Answer to Our Dreams of Easier Business Automation?

May 23, 2018 10:05:00 AM by Alan Pelz-Sharpe

I’ve been involved in some way or another in the world of business process automation (BPM) for over twenty years. I was the author of AIIM’s first BPM training course back in 2006. I’m a big fan of the idea of reengineering business processes, but there is no getting away from the fact that BPM projects are complex and scary – they require buy-in from the top (which is always difficult) and are seldom inexpensive undertakings.

Clearing the Complication - Making Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Accessible and Useful

May 17, 2018 10:32:00 AM by Alan Pelz-Sharpe

These days it feels almost impossible to have a conversation with anyone involved in the world of Information Management without bringing up machine learning and artificial intelligence. Everyone is talking about it, everyone has an opinion, everyone claims to be doing it — or at least thinking about doing it. AI is part of the popular zeitgeist, entering our lives in the form of autonomous vehicles on our roads, Alexa in our homes, and a burgeoning AI arms race between rival world powers. Yet despite all the talk, no one really seems to agree on what its real impact will be. In fact, everyone seems to have a different definition for what ‘it’ even is. There are those telling us it’s nothing new and its potential is over-hyped, while others tell us that AI and Machine Learning will make us all redundant.
