Considering Case Management? 4 Questions to Ask a Solution Provider

Whether we're talking about a life partner, a business partner or an enterprise information platform, you don't want to start any kind of relationship without all relevant information—or worse yet, go in blind. Selecting a case management solution provider is no different. Once you've decided that dynamic case management capabilities are a fit for your organization, choosing the right vendor and solution is a significant step forward. The right relationship delivers the tools you need to tackle dynamic, unstructured work and equip your knowledge workers with the right information, in context, to effectively manage cases, incidents, customer relationships, investigations and requests…

Best Practices in Text Analytics

GETTING THE "BIG" OUT OF DATA

The overriding problem with information is, of course, there's too much of it. And we're not just talking about the 1s and 0s of databases. There's text and email and social media and voice and video, even, to contend with.

But it's not so much the volume or variety of data that is daunting companies today. It's realizing the usefulness and value that is locked away in those data stores. So enterprising organizations are applying analytics tools to locate, associate and deliver key information sources directly to and from their users' many resources.

Find out how analytics is playing a key role in the thriving big data marketplace. Be part of the next KMWorld White Paper, "Best Practices in Text Analytics." Find out what the big deal is. For details on including your article, please contact:

Best Practices in Enhancing SharePoint

THE MANY DIMENSIONS OF SHAREPOINT

Bruce Springsteen said, "Music is what makes us not be stupid." Trying not to overstretch the metaphor, but there's a correlation to SharePoint in there, too.

The thing about SharePoint is that it is everything at the same time. And sometimes nothing at the same time. The platform is not as complete as you'd hope it to be. There's great variety and complexity in deploying SharePoint as a critical business element. And it ain't easy.

If you think you play a role in this great task, then get involved with your story and position in this market, please contact:
