Without doubt, 2007 was an important transitional year for enterprise content management (ECM). We saw the emergence of the MOI vendors—Microsoft, Oracle and IBM—as serious players in the market, with the dual, and frequently contradictory, goals of bringing ECM to the masses and delivering sweeping content services as core infrastructure.

Law offices handle most of their documents electronically, but a substantial minority of their work arrives in paper form, and getting it to the intended recipient can create a bottleneck in the workflow. Posted February 05, 2008

Business process management (BPM) has been one of the most successful types of enterprise applications. Rather than becoming shelfware, it tends to proliferate throughout an organization once its capabilities are demonstrated. Posted February 05, 2008

Retailers are incorporating knowledge management into their processes to gain advantage over their competitors, enabling executives and lower level managers to quickly run reports on sales and other performance measures, to handle inventory better and to gain a clearer understanding of their products.

Enterprise portals are a dead end. But before you start throwing daggers, stop and think about the reason we have enterprise portals in the first place. Web browsers (aka thin clients) don't have the programmatic sophistication to support the complex business logic, content management, security and integration features necessary to build sophisticated desktop quality applications. Enterprise portals work better than Web browsers alone, but have also failed to deliver desktop quality applications. If we have to move beyond the enterprise portal, what if we went back to the Web browser? Posted December 28, 2007

The primary technologies that support knowledge management (KM) are well understood and widely used, but have been limited in the past by lack of flexibility. Incorporation of social networking capabilities derived from Web 2.0, however, is now enhancing those foundational solutions and adding greater interactivity into the KM environment.

Each year, the technology and solutions nominated for these awards become increasingly sophisticated, on one hand, and increasingly intuitive on the other. Nearly gone are the days of complex and cumbersome deployments—those very factors that even a decade ago gave knowledge management a bit of a black eye. And although our panel of judges, who include colleagues, analysts, integrators and sometimes competitors, had a tough job narrowing down the award finalists, we all agreed that this year's winners exemplify what can only be described as a new era of knowledge management, KM 2.0.

Business intelligence (BI) solutions have typically focused on analysis of quantitative data to measure and predict organizational performance. The analyses help drive decisions about staffing, R&D, marketing and other business activities. However, quantitative analyses do not always provide an indication of causality...

Digital asset management (DAM) is one of the most dynamic areas of software today, with organizations increasingly seeing its value in reducing costs and producing revenue streams. "These software solutions are now considered ‘must have' products,"... Posted November 01, 2007

Selecting winners for these awards gets more difficult each year. When we handed out the first ones at the 2001 KMWorld conference, we received roughly 20 nominations for each category. The number of submissions has grown each year since then; we received more than 175 (both formal and informal) this year, and paring them down to these finalists was especially tough...
