Records and Information Management in Big Data

By Dennis Kempner 

Organizations, both large and small, are burdened with a high volume of data to store. In order to efficiently run a company, important data must be accessible, manageable and easily retrievable. The phrase “Big Data” refers to information and data that is too large for companies to manage and process on their own. Big Data is valuable for companies in that it can help to determine and fulfill customer needs thereby maximizing a company’s operational efficiencies. Companies with a lot of data need a team of professionals to manage this information. One effective solution to manage big data is Records and Information Management (RIM).

The importance of community management

By Angela Ashenden 

A major area of debate and concern for organisations considering how to establish, grow and manage an online community is the importance of the community manager, and what exactly the role entails. As a general rule, every online community should be allocated a facilitator or community manager; while some communities will require more facilitation than others as they mature, this role is extremely important in the early days in order to encourage and stimulate activity and adoption, and to ensure the growing community remains focused on its primary objectives.

The Hybridization of EFSS and ECM

By Chris Walker 

Consumer and enterprise file synchronization and sharing popped up because people needed a way to easily share and collaborate on business content. This gave rise to the “Dropbox problem”, which is just stupid and ignores the real problem; organizations didn’t provide their people with policies and tools that allowed them to get stuff done . Today there are plenty of options, consumer and business grade, that provide a cool experience with the security and controls that business and IT need. Organizations that haven’t sanctioned business grade file sync and share are foolish and open to a world of pain. Full article HERE - The Hybridization of EFSS and ECM

Email Management: Beyond Volume

By Lisa Ricciuti 

Working as an information management consultant I have definitely developed a new appreciation of email management challenges. Prior to consulting, I spent most of my time focused on what appears to be the biggest problem, volume. However, I now have a new understanding of the complexity involved with email management. There is no single “magic-bullet” solution that will resolve all the challenges. Most of the professional resources I read about email are focused on volume, how to manage it, and how to capture business records. When I think about the email problem and how it impacts my clients, the volume is really just a symptom of something much more.  Full article HERE - Email Management: Beyond Volume

Why PDF/A should matter to you

By Jose Machado 

One very important part of any Information Governance strategy is how long documents need to be kept in the organization, before being destroyed. These rules are influenced by various aspects, such as local legislation (retention period required by law), technical limitations (how much storage space is available), business factors, etc. Retention periods can be very long. Some examples in the UK: Human resources medical records must be kept for periods up to 40 or 50 years, in some situations. Government records (for building, accounting, health & safety, etc.) retention obligations are seldom under 10 years. Full article HERE - Why PDF/A should matter to you

People are at the Center of Change

By Christian Buckley 

Why is change so difficult? From an administrative perspective, it can mean giving up control, and letting go (at least that's the perception). It may also be a recognition of the gap between the philosophical idea of allowing people to manage their own sites and content, and the reality that, in general, these unmanaged environments are messy (especially when you later upgrade or migrate). Collaboration itself can be a difficult concept for people to embrace. It takes time to incorporate new tools and processes into your corporate culture, and many of the exciting new features that convinced your management team to adopt a technology may be counter-intuitive.

Mid-Year Market Summary from A SharePoint of View

By Mike Alsup 

This post summarizes market developments in the SharePoint, Office 365, and ECM ecosystems over the last quarter. I was fortunate to attend a variety of events recently, including the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), and events hosted by AIIM, Lexmark, Nintex and the DLM Forum in Europe. Microsoft continues to strengthen its mix of products with Windows 10 and EMS for iOS and Android. They made a number of acquisitions this quarter that aimed to provide a more capable Office 365 and Azure environment that equally supports Windows, iOS and Android. At WPC, they said that their EMS software which manages multiple BYOD devices has been growing. Full article HERE - Mid-Year Market Summary from A SharePoint of View
