Uncovering SharePoint's Past and Future Challenges

Thursday, October 6, 2011 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT


First launched in 2001, SharePoint celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and in IT terms, that's approaching middle age! We thought it was about time that we look at the SharePoint journey so far — and more importantly, that we consider the approaching years ahead.  Adopted in organizations around the world, Microsoft has had one of its greatest commercial successes thus far; but it has not been without challenges.  In this webinar, we will examine some of these challenges, and consider how they specifically impact Microsoft SharePoint technology buyers. Join us for an analysis of SharePoint’s real weaknesses and strengths, along with a gaze into the crystal ball, as we consider SharePoint’s future and prospective challenges.

Are You Creating a Data Swamp ?

Organizations have made investments in "small data" for years and many are achieving data governance, or at least understand the gap they need to fill. They know how to work with the relatively small number of technologies in play—including databases (standardized on SQL), ETL, DQ and BI—ideally all linked with modeling tools and/or a business glossary. These organizations are now embracing the promise of big data—a new frontier akin to the wild west or the gold rush, with programmers/data scientists let loose with a daily growing menagerie of languages and technologies outside the normal IT and governance structure. Sometimes this produces genuinely impressive-looking results and insights—especially those supporting marketing. But making decisions based on marketing insights can be low consequence compared to other potential analytical results . . . .

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.

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:
