4 Common Reasons SharePoint Projects Fail

As a consultant I get to work with clients to help them roll out new installations of SharePoint or create new projects on top of existing implementations. I also get called in to help with existing SharePoint implementations that aren't being used. Either people didn't adopt it, the company did not get all their content and business processes created, or they just never rolled out the platform to the end users.

Technology that Puts the Worker Before the Work

2014-03-April-Razor-Suleman.jpg

Forget all the talk of technologies to enhance the customer experience and measure customer success. None of that is going to work unless employees succeed in their jobs. The right employees.

Just like almost every part of society that's transitioning from the pre-web era to the digital, mobile society we're becoming, human resources (HR) managers are caught in the middle — a fact that became clear today at Achievers' Aspire conference in San Francisco, where speaker after speaker shared lessons learned along the digital highway.

"The rise of the web changed the way we find work," said Razor Suleman, who founded the employee engagement software vendor a dozen years ago. "Who goes to the newspaper to find work anymore?"

Ask Questions Before Taking the Mobile Enterprise Plunge

Not Every Company Should be a Mobile EnterpriseThis is what telecommuting looked like in the 1960s: taking work papers home in a dog-eared briefcase to dumb terminals and 300 baud modems. People have always wanted the freedom to work remotely part of the time, making telecommuting an important part of working culture.  And while the mobile enterprise appears to be the next logical expansion of telecommuting, it is something entirely different.

BYOD: Mixing Work and Play While Minimizing Risk

Just a few years ago, there was a clear divide between employer-owned, work-related devices and user-owned personal devices. But as more and more employees bring their own notebooks, tablets and smartphones for work and for personal purposes, that divide is shrinking and in some cases, shattering.

Your Playbook for Mobilizing Today's Workforce

Your Playbook for Mobilizing Today’s WorkforceRemember the good old days when you could truly leave work at work? Your desktop computer was the only place you could access work information to do your job, so once you left the office, the work stayed there until you returned the next day.

That was a pleasant 20th century dream which started to dissipate at the turn of the 21st century, when mobile phones continued their rise and began to allow people to check email on the go -- remember BlackBerry? -- so when they were out of the office they could still be “in touch.”

Jahia 7: The Rise of Digital Industrialization

There are few surprises in today’s official release of Jahia 7 — but only because Jahia disclosed most of its features and functionality during JahiaOne, its international user conference in Paris this past February.

While the general release of Jahia 7 is interesting, what is just as interesting for future developments of this open source content management system (CMS) vendor is the development of its vision and strategy around what it calls Digital Industrialization. 

The Drag on Enterprise Mobile Applications: Security and Privacy

What we have today could barely be called enterprise mobile applications.

We have enterprise applications that exist in a mobile form. We even have some mobile applications meant for the enterprise. But what we have very little of is mobile applications that an IT professional would feel comfortable calling enterprise grade. There is a simple reason for this -- lack of viable security and privacy options that meet the needs of a large or even mid-sized enterprise.

Save Your Tears, Intranets Aren't Dying

Save Your Tears, Intranets Aren't DyingExpect nothing new for the intranet this year. No new major innovations, or paradigm shifts, or evolutionary arcs. The intranet will not die, nor will email, nor will any other enterprise technology. Some of the supposed "experts" (who are really just grandstanding) have predicted in recent years the death of the intranet, the death of email, the death of enterprise social media (one self-proclaimed guru even told me recently that wikis are dead). No one is dying, and no one is giving birth to any great innovation.

Nor should you be fooled by old sheep in new clothing with five-dollar handles like “digital workplace” and “enterprise social network.”

Sign Posts to Watch on the Social Enterprise Journey

goldenpath.jpg“It’s the journey, not the destination.”

This well known cliché holds true for enterprise social maturity. In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and her friends traveled the yellow brick road believing the wizard would fix all their problems. Turns out there was no wizard -- just a man behind the curtain. But they didn't need a wizard, because the answers and abilities to solve the problems lay within. 

When you first embark on your journey to enterprise social business, it's hard enough to define the path, have a concept of the grand vision and take the first few steps to piloting and experimenting within a new world of technology. As the journey matures, the focus turns to finding like-minded people to evangelize and support, understanding detractors and defining the boundaries of the path within your organization.

LinkedIn Asks: How Good is Your Content?

LinkedIn is stepping up its focus on content. After releasing a site-wide Publishing Platform last month, the professional social networking site will be launching a Content Marketing Score and a way to measure trending content. 

Amazon Joins Trend of Desktops in the Cloud

Amazon today announced a new cloud-based desktop service that may suit companies where more workers are using their own devices to connect to the enterprise.

Amazon WorkSpaces allows end-users to access their documents or applications remotely from Amazon Web Services (AWS) by both computers and mobile devices, including iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle Fire tablets.

A company's Active Directory can be integrated so users can continue to logon with their work credentials. Including storage, directory access and a desktop, it costs $35 per user per month.

Enterprise Collaboration Tools a 'Must' For Business Success

AIIM lede.jpgMost organizations see collaboration as crucial to their success, but nearly two-thirds of those organizations feel confused about the dovetailing of collaboration and social tools.

And while document and content sharing outside the firewall is considered a necessary evil, many onsite systems have been secured against access to outside systems, forcing business workers to rely on unsecured file sharing systems.

These results and more from recent AIIM research points to a C-Suite that favors collaboration, but puts many obstacles in the way to achieving it.

Thank You, Jive, Let's Get Producteev

ProducteevDomestic task management is hard enough, unless you’re one of those drones who gets a charge from crossing something off of your “honey do” list. 

Put yourself in the office where teamwork and collaboration are defaults and keeping track of things — like who’s doing what, where’d you put that, when are you going to finish your part so that I can do mine, what’s the priority — becomes a nightmare.

Or not, if you have Producteev, a social task management solution, offered by Jive.

Vendors Fail Regulated Industry Customers with Rush to the Cloud

Judging from the messaging, reviews and conversations that came out of the SharePoint conference earlier this month, the word from Las Vegas could be summed up as, "It's all about the cloud stupid!" 

With Office 365 growth surpassing SharePoint's, Yammer the new focus of social and the newest buzzwords, Office Graph and Oslo, the drum beat you hear is the continued push to the cloud.

The $100 Billion People Directory

Facebook started off as a people directory. Why connecting people is the new goldmine both inside and outside organizations.
