""Information governance" is all over the news. It's a relatively new and buzzy discipline, but trending fast toward general acceptance. I like when that happens, but it's not an area in which I am tremendously well-versed. So when I caught this assignment, I sought out the best person I could think of to have a chat. Tamir Sigal is the senior marketing professional at RSD. He's also a friendly and talkative dude, and has become a friend. And on top of all that, he also has some strong opinions regarding the state of the art in information governance, and more..." Posted August 28, 2012

SharePoint has emerged as the most successful and ubiquitous software tool ofour lifetimes. However, it still isn't everything it needs to be. A SharePoint "ecosystem" has evolved to make sure that your SharePoint deployment is as effective and productive as it can possibly be. Can SharePoint be a risk to your company? Yes. Can SharePoint also be an incredible cost-sink for your IT department? Yes. Can SharePoint also be the greatest collaboration, content management and productivity tool on the planet? . . .

Customer service, is, quite possibly, the final triumph for knowledge management. What better application in an organization can lead to increased sales, customer retention, employee satisfaction and enhanced word-of-mouth "reputation" than the customer care experience? So when we talk about "knowledge-centered support," we're talking about more than just a motto on the wall. We mean business. Here's why customer service has become the landing zone for knowledge management, and why organizations need to focus on agents, their needs, their incentives and their ultimate goals.

That conquering sound you hear is SharePoint, and it is nothing short of apocalyptic. The fastest growing business application in Microsoft history (making it pretty much everyone's history), 20,000 SharePoint users have been added every day for the last five years. That's kind of astonishing. Posted July 01, 2012

"Seek and ye shall find..." Yeah, right. Maybe about half the time, if you're lucky. A recent MindMetre research report surveyed approximately 2,000 business directors and managers from all over the world. Their key conclusion? More than half (52%) said they "cannot find the information they are seeking using their own organization's enterprise search facility," within a reasonable amount of time. Posted July 01, 2012

Anyone who has read these articles regularly knows that I came to "social networking" for business late and then only reluctantly. In fact, I am personally living only on the furthest outskirts of the social neighborhood. I don't Twitter, nor Tweet. I haven't linked up with LinkedIn. I have no interest in Pinterest. I'm too anti-social to collaborate. I can't even say "wiki" without smirking. I do enjoy Facebook, but mainly as a way to reconnect with old friends, remote friends and new acquaintances I never would have known otherwise. But it's also a localized, interpersonal thing in real life. I think of Facebook as a sort of secret handshake.... Posted May 29, 2012

In healthcare, the kinds of alerts you create for patient safety deal with issues such as contra-indications about drug interactions, and the level of complexity is staggering.... Posted May 28, 2012

"Seek and ye shall find..." Yeah, right. Maybe about half the time, if you're lucky. It's true that most searches end in failure. And what's even more troubling is that the person making the search may never know that it was a failure. Let's say: A hypothetical knowledge worker enters a search query. May be a good one; may be a vague one. Doesn't (and shouldn't) matter. Then that person gets a results page. There is a long list of possible answers to his query, and there might even be some interesting stuff on it.
But the nagging doubt comes from "not knowing what you don't know"...

Real Story Group's lead analyst, Tony Byrne, shares a few thoughts on the changes in the content management market over the last ten years. He discusses the three broad lessons learned and six imperatives facing information professionals today. Posted March 31, 2012

At the core of the Open Web platform is a culture that favors openness and easy access to new technology. For enterprises, the Open Web will be the basis for a revolutionary new wave of Internet applications that motivate, serve, delight and empower customers. Posted March 31, 2012

Search has been a mainstay of knowledge management since the discipline was first defined, but is not yet a perfect technology. Organizations that spend time analyzing their content and establishing metadata are able to leverage their intellectual capital more effectively. Posted March 31, 2012

That conquering sound you hear is SharePoint, and it is nothing short of apocalyptic. You'll see it mentioned elsewhere a couple times in this White Paper: The fastest growing business application in Microsoft history. . . Posted March 27, 2012
