Imagine your business without boundaries: paper and electronic forms merge; you can capture information in any form, from any place; you can exchange information more efficiently to drive business processes, ensure traceability of information and eliminate points of failure as information is managed throughout its lifecycle. Intelligent capture and exchange keeps information, and your business, moving.
Information drives business and 80% of all corporate content is unstructured in nature. The volume of information produced is growing at 50% annually.1 On average, a knowledge worker generates about 800MB of content each year.

What began as a pilot program to improve timesheet processing is now transforming Montgomery County's invoicing and accounts payable procedures into an adept system that dramatically reduces inefficiencies and greatly improves accuracy.
With more than 10,000 timesheets to process every other week, this Maryland county previously spent two days scanning documents and another three days reviewing them to correct errors in key pieces of data—such as employees' identification numbers—during the process, said Mayland Lin, department of technology services. . . .

For centuries, business has run on paper. For many industries, that's still the case. But as the pace of business has accelerated, paper has become a burden and a bottleneck. It slows productivity because only one person can handle a paper document at a time (unless it is copied, which takes more time and further erodes efficiency). In an increasingly stringent regulatory environment, paper is also a legal risk. . . . Posted July 06, 2007

Many businesses come to imaging frustrated with the problems of managing their paper records and, quite often, overly enamored with the vision of life in the digital world. The pain of paper is fresh in their minds and the vision of a paperless Camelot shines in the distance—an image often reinforced by the last imaging salesperson to call on the business.
The path from today's pain to tomorrow's utopia is not a smooth one. In today's business environment, most organizations are faced with an imposing legacy. . . .
Posted July 06, 2007

Document conversion has a stinky reputation of being: (1.) Expensive; (2.) disruptive; and (3.) difficult to cost-justify. One of the reasons is that, historically, imaging is thought of in a very binary way. You either image, or you don't. No gray area.
But that mood is changing. What used to be the final act in a business process—scan the paper and shred it—is increasingly at the "front-end" of the process, and is tied to the ensuing businessprocess...whatever it might be. . . .

About a year ago, Dr. Michael Koenig wrote in these pages that unlike many business “fads,” knowledge management didn’t fall into the typical 10-year pattern of boom and bust, with four or five years of explosive growth, followed by a slightly longer period of almost equally dramatic decline. His conclusion: KM is here to stay. Posted March 01, 2007

Full life cycle document solutions Posted January 10, 2007

About 11 years ago, a group of us were starting to ask ourselves whether all this "information management stuff" might have a greater purpose than merely to store information in a file server somewhere. That maybe—just maybe—information could be applied to the type of work and to the level of decision-making taking place in business at such a famously accelerated pace. And in providing that information to the right person at the right time, the promise of a truly knowledge-based economy could be realized. In the 10 years since ImagingWorld became KMWorld magazine, we've tried to address the discipline (practice? theory? religion?) of knowledge management from each of its well-known constituent components—people, process, technology.

Once a technology reserved for companies in the entertainment and publishing industries, digital asset management (DAM) is rapidly becoming a corporate enterprise solution due to the growth of digital media content (video, graphics, photos, multimedia presentations) and the demand for its consumption. Yet the capital and resources required to deliver a DAM system have caused mainstream companies to question whether they can prove a financial return. Exploring alternative delivery options, including DAM as a hosted service, may be the answer. Seeking the Right Solution Businesses searching for a DAM solution are faced with three basic choices: installed software with in-house management; a hosted solution with outsourced management; or a combination of the two. Each approach has its own benefits and considerations: Organizations that have a sophisticated internal IT operation are most likely to benefit from an in-house solution. They have the hardware, software, budget and network infrastructure to support an internal system. u A hosted solution offers significant advantages to companies with constrained IT resources...

People today consume information in radically different ways than in the past, as technology drives the proliferation of new media, new forms of content and new channels for its delivery. For businesses competing for the mindshare of existing and potential customers, this rapid evolution mandates a more streamlined approach to the delivery of marketing messages and product information across the full spectrum of communications media. A failure to embrace this new reality, and invest in the means to thrive within it, can spell disaster for any company—including yours. A fundamental first step is to consolidate and organize all of the marketing content used to promote your products and brands, to make these messages and rich media content readily accessible for consistent delivery via all channels of customer interaction. This core requirement is driving increasing adoption of digital asset management (DAM) systems... Posted November 01, 2006

The roots of digital asset management (somewhat distractingly and sometimes amusingly shortened to “DAM”) are firmly planted in the media/entertainment and the print/publishing marketspaces. Movie studios and newspaper conglomerates, international news agencies and advertising movers-and-shakers—these were the first types of organizations to embrace digital asset management. As a result, it should be glamorous and exotic—as Paris Hilton would say: “It’s hot.” Well, OK, I guess. I have yet to find a deep well of hotness, but I WILL say that DAM is leading the way toward a fantastic vision that goes way beyond the mere information management and content delivery that we know today. Movie studios and television production groups use DAM to manage their intellectual property and their production processes. In that sense, DAM is sort of exotic. Imagine being able to search for a certain word spoken in a movie soundtrack (“search: Rosebud”), or sort a server full of video clips by “girl,” “guy” or “horse.” It really starts to get into Star Trek territory.
