Organizations today work with a great volume and variety of data. The trick is using that information in ways that improve the performance of the organization. One example is in the oil and gas industry where the stakes are extremely high; involving millions in revenue. Government approval for exploratory oil and gas rights are awarded to companies with the best technical application. The trouble is, assembling and authoring highly complex, high-value documents like exploratory proposals and regulatory submissions – which can often be thousands of pages – is a huge challenge.
Prior to becoming involved with the content and information management industry, I spent several years in the high-volume printing industry. I was a mid-level executive for a large health insurance provider and was responsible for printing and mailing, pre-press and offset printing, and electronic book publishing across four states. And let me tell you, my teams concentrated on output. Tons of it. Twenty four hours a day, 365 days of the year. Imagine stacks of paper everywhere and truckloads of output being shipped and mailed nationwide. This is in great contrast to today and my current involvement in the enterprise content management industry (now Intelligent Information Management) where our attention is largely focused on input...with much less focus on output. We aggressively capture data, input that information into advanced systems and databases, and then safeguard it with methodologies and teams designed to collect and protect information.
