Call for Speakers
Enterprise Search Summit 2009:
Enabling Information Access

Proposals are now being accepted for the Enterprise Search Summit East 2009, which will be held May 12-13 in New York (pre-conference sessions May 11). The deadline for submitting proposals is November 10, 2008.
Search can no longer be viewed as a stand-alone application. It is increasingly part of everything we do and has become the de facto gateway to information in the enterprise. This year’s Summit will examine the ways to leverage search tools, information architecture, classification, and other strategies and technologies to enable information access. We seek dynamic speakers who can talk knowledgeably about detailed aspects of how to implement and maximize search within an organization.  

Proposals should be submitted by Nov. 10 Here

Quote of the Week
Planning is an unnatural process; it is much more fun to do something. The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. — Sir John Harvey-Jones

There is now little doubt that cloud services and solutions can really be trusted to deliver many of the same capabilities, security, and service levels as those delivered by traditional IT. But where does the cloud fit into your organization?

The Future of Content Management
Content management will always play a pivotal role in an organization's ability to manage input and output of information. It can make the difference in whether the company understands its content value, or loses it in the weeds. We will opt for the former, and find ways to help organizations construct their content management programs so that information does not go wasted.

Best Practices in BPM & Case Management

The Case for Case Management

By now we've all become familiar with BPM--business process management. It started with simple workflows for transactional processes, then graduated to a more intense management environment that addressed more complex business procedures. But it was always just that: procedure management. The daily in and out of doing the same thing over and over? just in a better way. 

Not a bad thing. Still works today.

But we've moved it up a notch. Where BPM was focused on repeatable transactions and processes, the emerging case management trend is intended to address all the unpredictable events that happen every day in business. As BPM "suites" grow to adapt to these elusive changes in the environment, a new category of products has emerged. 

We call it Case and Business Process Management.

Does that sound like your marketplace? It should, if you want to move forward into this next era of business automation. You can make your mark on this market by participating in the next KMWorld White Paper ?"Best Practices in BPM and Case Management."
