We've met the enemy and he is us.
It’s a fact, knowledge workers not only produce much of their tangible intellectual work via e-mail, but also implicitly form useful social networks, collaborate with geographically dispersed colleagues, and create organizational knowledge through the daily exchange of hundreds of e-mails.
As useful and necessary as e-mail is, it stills overwhelms us and costs businesses US$ 900 billion a year in lost productivity, according to research by New York analyst firm Basex.
Add to that the persistent loss of actionable knowledge -- because it's buried deep inside mail folders -- and you have yourself a nice little problem.
What can one do about this?
The brains at MarkLogic (news, site) think they have answers. And they are holding a webinar next Thursday to share them. The event is entitled: Reducing Information Overload: Turn Email into an Asset and will run Thursday, April 30th at 2pm ET / 11am PT.
What you will learn:
- How the corporate e-mail glut continues to cost businesses time and money
- How to re-capture technical expertise for the entire organization
- How MarkMail -- an enterprise infrastructure tool -- is transforming the way we do e-mail archiving, e-mail search and knowledge management
- How Mark Logic uses MarkMail to eliminate chronic re-creation of repetitive knowledge, reduce unnecessary interruptions, and easily create an interactive knowledge system
Better Management of Email-borne Knowledge
MarkLogic's public MarkMail project celebrated its one year anniversary this past December. They set up this demo of the technology to give the public an accessible view into what they were capable of. To date they've cataloged over 7,000 public mailing lists with more than 37 million email messages, and the site is getting over a million unique visitors per month.
The idea is that email needs to be better leveraged. The company aims to deliver what Basex calls Friction Free Knowledge Sharing. With MarkMail email is the content source, allowing your organization to turn the "by-product of daily work into organizational knowledge."
