Three Prerequisites to Addressing Change

Why is change often so tough? We become tied to what we know. We turn our actions into habit. We become comfortable with how things get accomplished. And, it is when this "how" broadly becomes comfortable, that we—as people, as leaders, as technologists, as workers—are at risk of becoming stagnant; our organizations at risk of becoming irrelevant. Especially now in the era that Gartner has aptly coined "Big Change," we have to be open to new ideas, new technologies, new ways of conducting business . . . .

From Big Data to Total Data Let the Migration Begin
The challenge for today's enterprise is not only just big data, it's adopting a "total data" landscape. We'll be explaining this in our next KMWorld Webcast on Tuesday July 28, 2015. We'll look at integrating various database platforms into consistent models, including Hadoop and MongoDB, and include industry best practices.

Coming August 25, 2015
Content Analysis
Following on the big data issue, determining what content contains is a critical skill for 2015 information managers. Text analytics is the new frontier for just about everybody in this business. The ability to analyze, examine, cull out the crap and discover the gems is the new effort at work in the document management business. Let us know where you are in delivering that promise.

Coming September 22, 2015
Content Management
Content management still plays a pivotal role in an organization's ability to manage input and output of information, and can make the difference in whether the company understands its content value, or whether it's lost in the weeds. We will opt for the former, and find ways to help organizations reconstruct their ECM programs so that information does not go wasted.

Coming October 20, 2015
Customer Experience Management
It's where your customer touchpoints meet your operations. And it's getting more complex. That's why the customer experience is the highest priority. When a customer contacts you, that's the BEST opportunity to convert him or her to a loyal customer. But how are you doing at that? Most companies would say "OK." But "OK" is not good enough. Customers matter most. Make sure of that.

Best Practices in WEB CONTENT MANAGEMENT

MASTER YOUR WEBSITE
Take Control of Content

Web content management has two major components: 1. What you put on your website; and 2. How you put it there. Web content needs to be succinct, descriptive and accurate. None of those things is easy.

That’s where Web content management tools come into play. By guiding the user through the practice of writing (also called authoring), collaborating, administering (also called following the rules), web content management tools can help every employee, however skilled, to do it right and according to accepted policies.

To what degree are you prepared to manage the fine details involved with Web publishing. Everyone in your company, from marketing to sales to administration has a stake in it. Are you doing right by your site? Find out how in the next KMWorld White Paper, “Best Practices in Web Content Management.”
