Google Drive Offers Add-Ons, Cash to Microsoft Office Users

add-ons.jpgOne hit apparently deserves another. Just a few weeks after Microsoft Office dealt another blow in the ongoing slugfest with Google Drive, the Internet giant is fighting back.

In the past three days, Google has made two announcements that are creating new disruptions.  One of them — a new Office 365 to Google Apps referral program — seems specifically designed to annoy Microsoft,  while the  other, the release of third-party add-ons to Google Apps, adds additional functionality.

Businesses Should Manage Records - Not 'Keep Everything'

paper and more paper.jpg

Many businesses claim they have been busy over the past two years developing and implementing records and information management strategies. But scratch the surface and you find many of those strategies aren't especially effective.

Blame a lack of employee engagement, a lack of commitment at the management level and the absence of meaningful ways to measure the strengths and weaknesses of these efforts.

Is Box Really All That?

Levie's Socks.jpgAll eyes are on Box as the world waits for the file sync and share startup to reveal its financials in preparation for its pre-IPO road show.

Today, at SXSW, Box CEO Aaron Levie revealed that Ashton Kutcher (yes, the Ashton Kutcher) and Guy Oseary (Madonna’s manager) have invested in his company. The investment happened in December, but why announce it then when you can do it just before IPO-time?

Opportune, no?

On Friday Bloomberg reported that the company plans to make its prospectus public in the next few weeks.

Does Dropbox for Business Have a Secret Weapon?

Dropbox for Business launched in the middle of last year, rebranding its "Teams" product to appeal more to the larger enterprise customers. Since then uptake has been steady, with Dropbox claiming 4 million business users worldwide. But in an increasingly crowded marketplace how does Dropbox stand out?

Document Mgt Roll-up: Mostly SharePoint #SPC14

You can argue it if you want, but this week was all about SharePoint -- and little about Microsoft Dynamics CRM and AX. In fact, as one of our editors pointed out, there’s more SharePoint than you could shake a stick at — largely as a result of the SharePoint Conference 2014 in Las Vegas.

In no particular order, here are some of the items that either slipped under the radar or which caught our attention. There is also some mention of Microsoft Convergence Dynamics.

OneSource Creates New Way to Search Big Data

To help businesses find useful insights in every growing amounts of big data, Massachusetts-based OneSource is reinventing search  – and changing its name to Avention to reflect its new direction.

Jonathan Flatow, Avention's CEO, told us the new name implies "avenue of invention" — something he believes suits the new search application. Designed for sales, marketing and business researchers, it uses natural language and semantic understanding to conceptually sift through mounds of data sources.  

Exclusive: EMC Syncplicity is About to Cozy Up to SharePoint #SPC14

Some cloud-based file sync and share vendors bill themselves as replacements for SharePoint. Syncplicity isn’t one of them.

The rockin’ hot EMC subsidiary has all of the good things that great start-ups are known for, plus a keen understanding of how enterprises operate and their requirements.

What's new? Well, there's the first global exchange for mobile-first native ads, another way to integrate Salesforce with Google Apps, a digital asset management (DAM) conference in New York and help for mobile users  interested in editing Microsoft Office documents and other common file types.

Document Mgt Roll-Up: Facebook Quashes Its Email Service

docmgmtrollup.jpgWe saw a lot of action in the document management world recently, with Facebook closing the door on its much ignored email service, a rebranded Web Apps from Microsoft and a new Service Pack released by AvePoint aimed at improving data governance. Accusoft kept busy with the upgrade of its Prizm document viewer, while WatchDox offered a free document editor to its users.

Top Down vs. Bottoms Up Information Management

Top Down vs. Bottoms Up Information ManagementWe've already established what makes a good information management (IM) business case from a high level, i.e., addressing meaningful business value rather than “save everyone time searching for documents.” But the devil’s in the details, so I want to dig down a bit more to give you all more specific guidance on building an effective IM business case.

Dropbox Gets Big Bucks, Box Gets Talent, Syncplicity Gets Analytical

These are golden days for enterprise (and wanna be enterprise) IT vendors, especially for those that offer consumer-like experiences in the cloud.

You don’t have to look any further than the (now confirmed) $350 million Dropbox raised last month to prove it. That puts the file sync and share vendor’s valuation at over $10 billion. It’s a pretty hefty sum for any company, let alone one which may be giving many of its products/services away for free.

That being said, Dropbox is loved by the masses; last November it reported that it had 200 million registered users. It’s safe to assume that most of them registered as individuals versus as members of corporations.

Rob Koplowitz remembers it well: that time a decade ago when document management was considered a "non-sexy technology." Thanks to the new emphasis on social business, those days are behind us now.

"Over the course of the last eight years I've been with Forrester, we've seen that completely slip on its head," said Koplowitz, a vice president and principal analyst for the technology research house. "Everything has changed so dramatically."

Koplowitz reviewed the reasons for that change on Feb. 19 in a webinar that also featured Marci Maddox, senior director for product marketing and customer experience management at OpenText.

In a post on the Office blog , Office Online product marketing manager Amanda Lefebvre outlined a number of changes to Office Web Apps, including a name change and the addition of some new features.

Quick Start Guide to Enterprise Content Management Usage Patterns and Solution Options

Planning and rolling out enterprise content management (ECM) for your organization can quickly get bogged down and complex unless you streamline the process early on.
