Grow Your ECM Career

I can’t put a value on how important my ECM (Enterprise Content Management) network has been.  Your network can be a support system when you’re trying to get through project hurdles, a reviewer for when you’re looking at changing a strategy and a source of a new opportunity if that need arises.  Your network goes… Read More ›

Why Employers Should Support Continuing Education

Why the Certified Information Professional is Important. I’ve been part of a debate for a little while around continuing education.  I’m a fan of owning one’s own ECM career and posted on this before, but organizations also need to support their staff.   I think continuing education is critical and all too often most services organizations… Read More ›

Information Professionals – Why do we stay?

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?

There are at least… Read More ›

One thing I’ve learned over 15 years in ECM is that there are characteristics in individual systems and solutions that often come to the level of idiosyncrasies.  The problem is that too often people on opposite sides of the table can argue against the same side of a solution for hours without realizing that both… Read More ›

BMOC at AIIM Expo 2010

On Tuesday afternoon I’ll be speaking on Mobile Content Management  at AIIM Expo.   Mobile content management to me is a “coming of age” story but debate continues as to whether or not this is a category that can eventually stand on its own. Can it be a peer to the other members of the family (WCM, DAM,etc.) ? … Read More ›
