OneDrive is Coming For You

Every so often, an up and coming software company will announce a new partnership with Microsoft adorned with a great deal of optimism. I cringe every time. These are not agreements made with the best interests of everyone in mind. Someone is eventually going to lose, and it will not be Microsoft. To be fair... Continue Reading →

Yesterday, Northwoods announced availability of Traverse, a text analytics solution for child welfare social workers.  The solution is designed to allow case workers to focus more on a child’s needs rather than needlessly reviewing case documents.  Traverse sifts through a case’s thousands of documents to give case workers quick insights into the people and key...

The last five months have been exciting.  For years I’ve been waiting to see if Federated Content Services would make a comeback.  Federated Content Services takes content from one content repository and makes it available along with content from another repository.  Finally, it seems to be making its comeback and quickly.  Both Gartner and Forrester...

There’s no difference between Global 2000 and Mid-Market for ECM

For way to long I’ve heard that there’s a difference between enterprise content management (ECM) at the “enterprise” level and at the “mid-market” level.  It seems that “enterprise” has taken to mean the Global 2000, rather than the type of decision.  Isn’t every organization an “enterprise”?  This has meant to some that the mid-market is...

Thoughts on Momentum Barcelona 2016

[WARNING - the following unapologetically contains work related commentary] I had the privilege this week of attending the beginning of Momentum Europe 2016 as ECD was finally able to bring this great event back after a three year hiatus. Bittersweet that this is the last true ECD conference.  I love this event. EMC World was... Continue Reading →
