Lions and Tigers and Facebook – Oh My!

Mar 30, 2018 10:52:23 AM by Bob Larrivee




Yep, that is what I am hearing these days, reminiscent of the scene from the Wizard of Oz when they are entering the forest, knowing that there are animals and possible danger hiding in the shadows. Yet they choose to enter anyway.

Now we have Facebook, and news that information was collected and used by Cambridge Analytica. So how does this happen? Have you ever agreed to play a game, use and app, or participate in any other social media activity where you are asked to allow the app to access your Facebook information and contacts? Hmmm, could that be a way they collect some of your data? Do you share information, videos, and messages with friends who then share them with others who share them with others, and so on? Could that be a way your data is being collected? Is it possible that like the characters from Oz, we are all willing participants in allowing our data to be shared with others, and then surprised when it shows up somewhere outside of Kansas unexpected, or is potentially part of a major data breach that has suddenly been exposed?

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).
