Going Down the Rabbit Hole

Feb 15, 2018 10:44:00 AM by Theresa M. Resek, CIP

When I was a young child, in an era when school papers had to be researched in libraries with card catalogs and shelves upon shelves of books, my father had the bright idea to purchase a complete set of Encyclopedia Britannica. Now, we lived on a tight budget and my mother wasn’t too thrilled with this splurge when a perfectly good library was so close to home. Dad wouldn’t hear of it! “Our girls need the best education we can offer,” so of course, mom relented.

Who's Watching Your Operations?

Feb 1, 2018 10:28:00 AM by Bob Larrivee

You manage a large facility with multiple buildings across the campus. Each building while somewhat unique, is equipped with plumbing, electrical, security, HVAC, and other elements that must be monitored, maintained and repaired at some point. Ideally, you would have an army of staff available to monitor and check everything constantly to provide feedback and predict what will happen before catastrophe strikes, but you don’t. This is where machine learning and industrial operations can play a significant role.

Braindates: How We’re Kicking Peer-to-Peer Learning Up a Notch at #AIIM18

Jan 29, 2018 9:34:11 AM by Georgina Clelland

Say you’re feeling a bit under the weather. Ache here, pain there, friends asking “Are you ok? You look...tired.” What’s the first thing you’ll do? Go to the doctor?

Of course not.

You Google your symptoms, so you can judge if 1) you can cure what ails you on your own, or 2) it’s worth the hassle of going in to see your doctor. If you do end up going, you’ll proudly share your diagnosis with her before she can even examine you, just to make sure she doesn’t waste your time.

4 Special Requirements Social Media and Collaboration Create for GDPR Compliance

Jan 26, 2018 9:29:26 AM by John F. Mancini

A new set of European rules and standards related to privacy and data protection (the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR) has set in motion a mad compliance and security scramble not only for European companies, but also for any company doing business in Europe or with European customers. The regulation is designed to harmonize privacy across the EU, codify more rigorous privacy rights; strike a balance between privacy and security and create an explicit obligation for both data controllers and processors to demonstrate compliance with GDPR. The clock is ticking – the regulation goes into effect on May 25th, 2018, and the potential penalties for non-compliance are significant (organizations found to be in breach of GDPR may be fined up to 4% of annual revenues or 20 million Euro, whichever is the greater).

3 Challenges Created by an Ad Hoc Approach to Information Capture

Jan 23, 2018 6:00:22 PM by John F. Mancini


Scanning and information capture lead a curious double life. On one hand, it seems like we’ve been doing scanning and capture forever, at least within larger companies. Scanning and capture are stable, mature technologies with a well-documented ROI. On the other hand, they are still somewhat new when it comes to adoption by many smaller and mid sized organizations.
