"User-Centric" IT -- Thinking About Information Chaos in a Different Way

Posted by John Mancini

Jun 11, 2014 7:56:46 AM

What do you think?

Last week, Box and 6 other software companies (GoodData, Jive, Marketo, Okta, Skyhigh Networks, and Zendesk), together Geoffrey Moore (remember AIIM's System of Record and System of Engagement?) launched a PR campaign centered around "User-Centric IT."

Core principles are:

1. User-Centric IT serves the business by empowering people. IT’s evolving role is to empower people to work better and smarter. Getting people to engage, connect and act in real-time adds incredible velocity to a business.

2. User-Centric IT adapts to the way people work, not the other way around. Business technology should fit seamlessly into people’s workflows. It should be easy to use, flexible, and customizable to fit the style of each individual and department.

3. People, information and knowledge must connect in real time. Collaboration is a growing imperative for today’s knowledge-based workers. Hoarding knowledge is out, sharing and collaborating are in. In the user-centric IT environment, people have intuitive and natural ways to share and collaborate with colleagues, partners and even customers.

One of the things I've been working on with our PR people is greater visibility for content and records management concerns in the business press.  I thought readers might be interested in some of the articles we've written in the past few months about ECM and Infochaos.  As you can see, our industry analyst Doug Miles is increasingly becoming a rock star in the press.

Why is this content management thing so difficult?

Posted by John Mancini

Apr 23, 2014 11:38:00 AM

As I approach my 18th anniversary at AIIM -- Yikes! -- I find myself in a bit of an introspective mood about our collective effectiveness.

Specifically, "Why is this content management thing so difficult?"

On the one hand, there is a lot of both quantitative and anecdotal evidence of the transformative impact of content technologies.  Almost universally, end user organizations that I ask, "Would you go back to the way you did things before?" respond with a definite "No way."  On the other hand, studies conducted by Doculabs and others paint a somewhat checkered history for an uncomfortablely high percentage of projects – projects that either went over budget, or over time, or that achieved adoption rates that were dismally lower than the initial projections.  

So how can we improve this?

About Digital Landfill

#InformationChaos -- The game has changed.  

Information is the world’s new currency.

Read just about any business publication and you will quickly conclude that how an organization manages its information assets is now just as fundamental a source of competitive differentiation as how it manages its physical assets, its human assets, and its financial assets. Amidst all of this opportunity, organizations are drowning in a sea of content and information. #InformationChaos reigns supreme.

That's the focus of this blog -- and for that matter, of AIIM.  As the President of AIIM, my goal is to help you and your organization survive and thrive in the era of #InformationChaos.  If I can help, contact me at johnmancini@aiim.org.
