E-Signatures—What Starts Digital, Stays Digital


It is difficult to talk about managing enterprise content without mentioning electronic signatures. E-signatures make it possible to create end-to-end digital workflows. They help maximize ROI from ECM, while enhancing productivity, compliance, security and analytics. For these reasons, we're seeing a spike in e-signature implementations with storage and collaboration tools like Box, Microsoft SharePoint and other ECM technologies . . . .

The Future Of KM
Knowledge management has hit plenty of bumps in the road over the years. KM has been frequently the target of disbelievers and dubious bean-counters. Those days are gone. Thanks to recent advances in better analytics and less expensive start-up costs, KM is now back in favor of the ruling class, and adopted widely by the working class, too.

Where Are We With Search?
Search was once the golden god of information management. But in many ways, it's been consumed and adopted into content management and BI-type applications so that it has little to add except as a sideline. Is that true? Does enterprise search have a role? Now is your time to tell the world what enterprise search still means, and why it matters.

Coming December 01, 2015
One of the most expensive, and information-intensive, processes in business today. And in 2015, it will only get worse. Every company will get sued. Get used to that. And the rules for discovering electronically created and stored information are only getting stricter.

KMWorld White Paper Series

***Coming in January 2016***
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.”
