May 18, 2018 10:51:36 AM by John F. Mancini

In a recent AIIM Industry Watch survey -- State of Intelligent Information Management: Getting Ahead of the Digital Transformation Curve -- I asked this question -- “Agree or Disagree: Digitizing and standardizing business inputs is one of the key bottlenecks for Digital Transformation.” The results are clear: Information chaos needs to be tackled at its origins.

Digital Transformation Threatened by a Rising Tide of Information Chaos

Surviving Disruption -- Strategies for the Era of AI and Machine Learning

Looking at Information Management Through a Different Lens

Digital Transformation effectiveness is imperiled by a rising tide of information chaos and confusion.

AIIM believes that information is the currency that fuels an organization. As such, it is an organization’s most important asset. But at the very time that information assets are increasingly important, our ability to manage them is eroding due to the exploding volumes, variety, complexity, and velocity of information coming into our organizations. Addressing “Big Content” and the rising tides of information chaos is a prerequisite to solving the Digital Transformation puzzle.

Looking at Information Management Through a Different Lens

Apr 19, 2018 9:00:00 AM by John F. Mancini

Organizations need to think about how the advent of the third wave of exponential change – the drive to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning - will require them to look at the future through a different set of lenses.  I’d like to offer three of these “lenses” – I’m sure there are more – but I think these three are ones that those in this community are uniquely prepared to tackle.

Surviving Disruption -- Strategies for the Era of AI and Machine Learning

Apr 18, 2018 9:00:00 AM by John F. Mancini

Truly disruptive moments occur only once in a generation. They occur when the cumulative inertia of technology innovation combines to disrupt business models. And the heart of disruption is ultimately when radical technology changes are standardized and then incorporated into new business models.

What's in an Event Name? -- Reflections on Think2018

Mar 27, 2018 9:00:00 AM by John F. Mancini

I was invited to attend the IBM Think 2018 event last week in Las Vegas. There were so many interesting aspects of the event, but most notable to me as someone who has attended multiple versions of this event over the years under multiple names (multiple event names, not my aliases) were: 1) the sheer scale of the event; and 2) the convergence of content and data.

An Exponential Moment and the Untapped Power of Incumbents

Mar 22, 2018 12:40:34 PM by John F. Mancini

I was reflecting a bit on some of the themes raised by Ginni Rometty, CEO of IBM, during her opening keynote at Think 2018 and their alignment with some of the concepts we at AIIM have been raising over the past year under the banner of Intelligent Information Management. I suppose it may seem a bit cheeky as the “Chief Evangelist of AIIM” to be commenting upon the comments of the “Chief Executive” of IBM, so for those who want to hear her thoughts without the benefit of my interpretation, the replay is HERE.

Migration is a good opportunity for some immediate quality wins

Mar 15, 2018 9:00:00 AM by John F. Mancini

The movement to the cloud is past the tipping point. Cloud solutions are no longer a question of “should we?” but rather “when?” Organizations may not be ready to go 100% to the cloud, but for nearly 80% of organizations, cloud is a critical part of their strategy. Consider this data from a Fall 2017 AIIM survey of 182 end user organizations:

The Pushmi-Pullyu Impact of Technology Innovation on Information Preservation

Mar 13, 2018 1:45:45 PM by John F. Mancini

It’s bad enough that those of us in the technology space use three letter acronyms as if we’re being paid per usage. So here's a quick definition of terms for those mystified by the title of this post. If you are not conversant in Dr. Doolittle (even the Eddie Murphy version), Pushmi-Pullyu is a "gazelle-unicorn cross that has two heads (one of each) at opposite ends of its body."

Many of you are aware that I’ve been working on a personal mystery project on the weekends that I’m publishing on Medium since it goes beyond the kind of thing we usually cover in this space (In search of my Grandparents -- A records management journey).
