We've been fortunate to be part of some good press pieces in the past few weeks, and I thought I would share a few of them...(If you can, please socialize some of them...)
From ComputerWeekly.com -- The challenges of information governance in our increasingly litigious age
Once upon a time records equalled paper. Increasingly, records exist in electronic form all over the business. Businesses therefore need much wider information governance policies to ensure that records are as secure as they were in the company library era – but are much easier to locate.
From BigDataRepublic.com -- Where Are the Day-to-Day Big Data Case Studies?
We are hearing so much about big data's wins in picking sport lineups, commissioning television shows, and identifying teen pregnancy that it's easy to miss the point if you work in some less spectacular businesses.
From eContent.com -- Big Data Balancing Act
As businesses try to make sense of big data, I'm reminded of how contradictory forces can bring balance to a situation in order to move it forward. In my opinion, there is an over-emphasis on the technology side of big data, and not enough focus on the business side.
From CITEWorld.com -- The genie escaped the bottle when the CEO got an iPadFor the last couple of years, IT has been dealing with the challenge of managing devices and services that users are bringing into the workplace. But that period is over -- the user has won. So the next big challenge for IT is connecting all these new systems into the legacy back-end systems that companies have been using for years, and which aren't going away any time soon.
From BigData Republic.com -- Big Content, Meet Your New Friend: Big Data
Many of the most interesting big data successes starting to appear involve unstructured data -- sentiment analysis of social networks, fraud detection searches in insurance claims, complex patent applications, or healthcare case notes. What’s happening, however, shouldn’t really be classified as big data, but more “big content.”
From CogniBlog -- Big Content, Dark Data and Information Management
The first keynote was by John Mancini (@jmancini77) who reminded us that AIIM started in 1943 because of the challenges inherent in managing microfilm, and has evolved since with the dominant technologies of the day. He talked about the rise of ‘extreme volatility’ in industry: for example, out of the Fortune 100 company list of 1977, there were 79 companies still on the list in 1984. But if you took the Fortune 100 list of 2005, only 25 were still there in 2012.
From Information Age -- One in four admit employees use "unofficial" cloud file-sharing
A quarter of organisations admit that their employees are using "unofficial", cloud-based file-sharing services to share content and collaborate, according to a survey by information management professional body AIIM.
From techbubbles.co.uk -- How To Stay On Top Of The Content In Your Business
The sheer volume of content in a modern business can be bewildering and keeping track of every last plan, proposal, video, tweet, email, white paper, article and more can be a thankless task.
From TechWhirl.com -- AIIM Study Shows 82 Percent of Companies Still Lack Enterprise Content Management
Despite accelerating information generation and storage trends and customer experience priorities most companies are hampered in their efforts to strategically manage their information assets at the enterprise level. That’s according to the results of the latest AIIM study “ECM at the Crossroads.”
From BusinessComputingWorld.co.uk -- What’s The Future For ECM?
Enterprise Content Management (ECM) has changed drastically during the ten years or so it has existed as a concept. It started life as localised document management and paper-imaging systems but now plays a much wider role within the modern enterprise, including storing and managing a broad variety of different types of content that simply did not exist ten years ago.
From Information Age -- Analysts urge IT leaders to deal with “dark data”
It is not enough for organisations to jump on the big data bandwagon. They must learn how to manage and cull data effectively in order to extract its true value – that is the message analysts from the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) and research firm the 451 Group tried to drive home today at the AIIM Roadshow in London.
