Employee File Management is a good start for ECM

(0)

I was happy to see that there was at least one Back Office Content Solution that was being addressed by Enterprise Content Management (ECM) vendors.  There is no better example of an end user solution that uses core ECM technology than managing employee files.   Traditional ECM vendors like OpenText, Xerox and eFilecabinet are competing with… Read More ›

Contract Life Cycle Management from an ECM Perspective

(1) foundation

As I have researched the Contract Life Cycle Management (CLM) environment, I have been concerned about the lack of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) vendors paying attention to the space.  ECM solutions would be an obvious platform for these solutions.  While the majority of the ECM vendors ignore this, a couple of vendors have addressed this… Read More ›

Smart Capture is not Text Analytics

(0) words

One of the things that got me going again about Text Analytics was the claim by many vendors at the AIIM Conference 2016 that they support Text Analytics.  Most didn’t and here’s why. Zonal OCR and Smart Capture are Not Text Analytics In automated indexing of captured (or imaged) documents, there are two options Zonal… Read More ›

Information Professionals – Why do we stay?

(0) Square_Peg_in_a_Round_Hole

I really enjoyed Pie’s article, “What is an Information Professional?”  His research on where many of us came from and what we wanted to be was interesting.  In his close, he asked for the story of our start.  It got me thinking.  Isn’t the more interesting question for any Information Professional, why do we stay? Being an… Read More ›

ECM vendors should look to Oracle as a guide

(1) oracle

It’s nice to get back into a good conversation over the direction of Enterprise Content Management (ECM).  This time around it’s platform verses solution.  I brought up that ECM Is Not a Solution, It’s A Platform a few weeks back and last week Pie also stated that Content Management is a Platform.   While we share… Read More ›

Getting Rid of Paper is Simple Arithmetic

(0)

I’m going to be honest, selling “scan and store” is boring.  When I get asked the value of simply scanning all the documents in a file room and storing them in a repository with a simple index, I become Rainman.  “That will be $10,000 and you’ll have a 1-year return on investment.”  Usually no one… Read More ›

Let’s Not Forget Archive Documents

(0) legopatent

I’ve found myself playing around archives for a few projects.  Usually it is for my blog Finnish Not Done, which would not exist if it were not for archives of the migration of Finnish people in the Americas.  I recently used archives for a story about AIIM’s early history, which got me thinking.  When talking… Read More ›

Changing Times in Contract Management

(0) scrabble-malaprop

When I hear about a corporate counsel still using a spreadsheet, I point out … With ContractWorks were often Apttus to ignore Advanced Software Concepts that can add Contract Logix and Digital Dimensions to our processes.  Instead we CobbleStone Systems together expecting to SpringCM magic.  Gatewit the program.  We’re at a ConvergePoint.  Are we going to Coupa… Read More ›
