    Taming Unstructured Data with Text Analytics

    It is today widely recognized that the vast majority of information in any business is unstructured data, typically in text format such as reports, filled forms, emails, memos, log entries, transcripts, etc. Most of the time, this rich source of information remains untapped—sometimes because companies are not fully aware of its potential value, more often because of the tremendous effort it takes to sift and dig out information manually from such large volumes. Text mining provides a viable solution. By combining natural language processing, statistical and machine learning techniques, text mining can quickly extract useful information from large collections of documents . . . .

    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.

    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.

    Coming November 10, 2015
    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
    E-Discovery
    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. So go get some information on the rules and structures for providing the appropriate and necessary back-up for your litigation. Start here.

    Best Practices for the Mobile Workforce

    WORKERS ON THE MOVE

    A mobile workforce changes the game in many ways. For one, having workers absent from their desks diminishes the interaction with colleagues—the water fountain/coffee room klatches—that can lead to helpful solutions and emerging insights. That kind of camaraderie should not be taken lightly.

    Mobile workers also need a very different infrastructure. There needs to be a means of supporting those who work from their cars, or their homes or from the beach for that matter, that is very different from the in-place systems that have been put in place and are monitored and tested on a usual basis. There is very little in place (in most companies) to ensure that workers “in the field” have effective access via their mobile devices to the same information assets they are accustomed to from their desktops.

    The world will get more mobile, not less. Now is the time to address those challenges. What does your company bring to the mobile workforce arena? To participate, please contact:

    Best Practices in Knowledge Management

    KNOW THIS: KNOWLEDGE IS ELUSIVE

    Many knowledge management gurus will tell you that knowledge cannot be "managed," in the typical sense. Data can be managed. Information can be managed. But "knowledge" is in some kind of fourth dimension, outside of the reach of control.

    Maybe it's a semantic argument. But there are plenty of people out there who are active knowledge managers--some with business cards that say so!--and spend their days managing their organizations' knowledge just fine, thank you very much.

    But there IS a point to the pundits' argument: Knowledge is not easy to put your finger on. It's an ethereal thing; it's not simply data, and it's not simply "what's in people's heads" either. It's both. So to conduct knowledge management requires a deep understanding of the business AND the workers who walk in and walk out of your buildings every day.

    The next KMWorld White Paper--"Best Practices in Knowledge Management"--will try to unravel that knot. If you have a way to address it, please contact:
