Another One Bites the Dust: RIP Microsoft Exchange Server 2003

Along with Windows XP, life support is running out for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. If your business is still running this 11-year-old mail, contact and calendar server, prepare to face a black hole when it comes to future problems.

With many businesses already using one of the server's three future generations — and with alternatives like Zimbra, Novell GroupWise and others — what will laggards pick when they finally move on? Cloud-based office solutions are just one appealing option.

Spreadsheets, Datapaloozas and the 'Liberation' of US Government Data

A hashtag reporting the location of downed power lines. Medication error reports from the US Food and Drug Administration available through APIs. A crowdsourcing tool to geotagged photos of disaster areas to help first responders. These varied technologies are part of a major open data initiative underway at White House — and they're being propelled by a series of data-fests called Datapaloozas.

What's a Datapalooza? Think of a party that attracts a curious blend of data geeks, entrepreneurs, industry hotshots, politicians and bureaucrats. They come together in the hope of turning vast amounts of government data into apps and computer programs that anyone or any business can use.

Look Out Box, EMC Syncplicity, IBM: Could $250M Fill Dropbox's Enterprise Gap?

fill the gap2.jpg

Dropbox wants to be the cloud solution enterprises turn to for online file sharing, but there’s a problem. At many companies, workers are prohibited from accessing the service. “It’s blocked,” were the two words we heard most often this morning when we asked a few dozen people to enter the site from their offices.

This is both a problem and an opportunity for Drew Houston, co-founder and CEO of Dropbox. And if reports are correct, he has a big pile of cash to throw at it.

Is Box Crossing the Chasm?

Box for iPad.jpg

You can bet that Box boss Aaron Levie felt pinch-yourself good yesterday when he discovered that his company’s new iPhone and iPad app was No. 10 on the list of top (free) apps in the App store. It’s worth noting, that as of this writing the app is at No.9

For anyone who doesn’t understand how impressive this is, at that moment, it was more popular than Clash of Clans, Skype for iPad — and it rivaled Netflix. It’s astonishing  when any kind of Enterprise app ever hits the top 50 list, let alone one that was created nine years ago by two guys who hadn’t yet finished college (Levie still hasn’t)  and knew very little about the Enterprise world when they started.

Box claims a “founded in the dorm room” story that contains, within it, a sexy twist. The company’s co-founder, Dylan Smith provided the company with 20k in startup funding which he won gambling online. Both Levie and Smith have yet to hit 30.

Document Mgt Roll-up: Boston Snubs Microsoft, Adobe Closing Workspaces

It’s slow in the document management space after the holidays, but there are still some notable points — including the fact the City of Boston has turned to Google and away from Microsoft.

2014: The Age of Data-Driven Storytelling, A Primer

storytelling.jpg

Storytelling makes data digestible. It gives data meaning. In 2014, more and more of the stories we see will be data driven or, at a minimum, data informed.

Mind you, at this point, I’m not talking about literature, television, movies, the oral tradition or even marketing pitches (the latter will come soon). I'm talking about stories that combine data and storytelling to do one of two things: to enrich a story that’s being told or to build narratives around data. In either case, data — big, medium or small — now plays a new, important role in engaging readers/receivers in stories and in making communication and decision-making easier.

Data-driven stories, it should be noted, are highly visual and intend to engage the reader/receiver in ways that Excel spreadsheets cannot.

CMSWire's Top 20 Hits of 2013: SharePoint

Top 20

SharePoint was one of the topics that attracted a lot of interest in the past year — and just as much controversy. It seems everyone has a view on it and how it should be used. 

However, there were three big subjects that dominated, and make up the lion’s share of our Top 20 this year: 1) SharePoint Online 2) SharePoint and Yammer and 3) SharePoint in Office 365. There were other issues too, like records management, search and how search is being used in the enterprise.

A Look Back : A Mobile, Cloudy World for Document Management in 2013

Looking Back at Document Management

Looking back over the year in document management, one thing stands out. And that is that organizations still appear to be struggling under the weight of paper despite developments in enterprise technologies that should make managing all that information a lot easier. 

In fact, the view from December 2013 is much the same as the view was in December 2012, with some subtle but notable changes. The first of those changes is the growing importance of mobile, while the second is the demand for agile products that can respond to changing market conditions quickly.
