A recent Deloitte study stated that knowledge workers send 160 messages per day... Posted April 13, 2010

In information management circles, some will tell you the concept of "information overload" has become cliché—a convenient red herring used to distract from more fundamental corporate performance issues. Yet, others will point to recent glaring information access and sharing failures... Posted April 13, 2010

If you are the CEO of an IT consultancy gazing out over your customers' application landscape, here is what you see: valuable information buried in piles of documents, databases, email messages and "stovepiped" applications.

By facilitating searches across a wide variety of sources, enterprise search and knowledge management (KM) enable users... Posted April 13, 2010

In 1992, James Carville coined the phrase, "It's the economy, stupid"—a saying which became a cornerstone of Bill Clinton's successful presidential campaign. Mr. Carville correctly identified that, among the many factors at play, concerns about the economy trumped all other issues of the day... Posted April 13, 2010
