2014-20-November-private public cloud.jpg

Forrester Research just named what it considers the leaders in hosted private cloud solutions and the top guns of security among public cloud platform service providers.

Meanwhile, Amazon Web Services took the top spot in this week's Wave for Public Cloud Platform Service Providers’ Security. Three other public cloud security offerings -- IBM's, Microsoft's and CenturyLink's -- offer competitive advantages. Forrester only included those four providers in its public cloud security assessment.

Four days ago, they cavorted at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at University Studios in Orlando, Fla.

Today, they are probably in front of their computers, logged into their OpenText Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system, managing, storing, archiving, finding and tracking enterprise information.

Goodbye Harry Potter Hogwarts Express. Hello Harry the IT guy.

It's a cruel dichotomy. We know. 

We learned after attending last week's OpenText's annual Enterprise World conference at the Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort. 

And it wasn't the only thing we learned.

OpenText Reveals Cloud Data 'Bill of Rights' #OTEW2014

ORLANDO, Fla. -- When they return to work Monday morning, the 2,000 or so attendees of the OpenText Enterprise World 2014 conference at the Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort will operate under what their Enterprise Content Management (ECM) provider calls a cloud data "bill of rights."

OpenText Targets Compliant Office 365 Cloud Shift #OTEW2014

ORLANDO, Fla. -- OpenText and Microsoft are friends. They're also competitors.

They are definitely friends when it comes to the relationship between Office 365 and OpenText's Content Server, the foundational repository and information governance layer for OpenText's Enterprise Content Management (ECM) suite. 

The friendship continued this week at Enterprise World 2014 here at the Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort. The 8,200-employee Waterloo, Ontario, ECM provider announced the availability of OpenText Application Governance & Archiving (AGA) 10.7 for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft SharePoint Services.

It's all about helping the transition into the cloud -- moving from on-premises instances of Microsoft SharePoint to Microsoft Office 365 in the cloud. Enterprises will also be able to maintain core information governance and compliance processes and integrate content from other enterprise applications such as SAP and Oracle EBS, according to OpenText officials.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- OpenText pulled no punches in the official opening session of its Enterprise World 2014 conference this morning at the Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort here.

It's enticing potential customers to ditch competing products and adopt its own enterprise information management (EIM) suites.

OpenText Reimagines Information Management #OTEW2014

There’s a gap in the kinds information management solutions available to businesses today. On one side there are the heavy-hitting, feature-filled Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions that highly regulated life sciences, energy and financial industries require.

On the other side, there are Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) solutions that typically store content on public clouds. And then there’s Box, which is busily adding social and collaboration features to its EFSS service.

But until today there hasn’t been a vendor that provides a business information management service that sits on a private cloud and offers secure social and collaboration features, without any involvement from IT at all. That’s right, end users can buy OpenText’s new enterprise-grade Information Management solution, OpenText Core, with a credit card and get busy.

“It’s designed for the digital first world. It’s very intuitive, requires no learning and is focused on the business,” said Lubor Ptacek, vice president of strategic marketing, at OpenText.

OpenText VP Highlights Digital First Agenda #OTEW2014

2014-12-November-cooking-pasta-sauce

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Enterprise information is like, well, pasta sauce.

It's constantly tinkered with -- by perfectionist chefs. It's altered, adapted and, if not to its creator's liking, simply discarded.

"Information is not inert," Muhi Majzoub, senior vice president of engineering at OpenText, told CMSWire. "It has context. It changes state, can be replicated, modified or destroyed."

Managing enterprise information today requires a "digital transformation" and recognition that we live in a "digital first world," he added.

Hence, the theme of this year's annual conference for the Waterloo, ON, enterprise information management provider: Simplify, transform and accelerate in the digital first world.

Is NSA Leaker Edward Snowden the Info Governance Champ?

AIIM information governance in the enterprise 320 x 240.jpg Whatever you think of US National Security Agency leakerEdward Snowden, you have to concede he has done a lot for information governance (IG). He didn't build the ultimate IG technology.

But his behavior over the past 12 months have forced a large number of organizations to sit down and ask themselves, "What if?"

What if your information is not governed properly?

New research from AIIM shows only 10 percent of organizations have an effective IG policy in place, while 21 percent have polices that are mostly ignored. Most of the rest consider IG a work in progress.

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.

How to Clearly Articulate Your Enterprise Content Management Objectives, Guiding Principles

You’ll often need to explain the goals of your Enterprise Content Management (ECM) program in more detail than an elevator pitch. Here are the objectives and guiding principles applicable to most ECM programs.

From Dwelling in Darkness to Prosumer Delight: ECM Technologies Come Alive in 2013

Some say that Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems are at their best when they are boring.

I respectfully disagree.

Enterprise Content Management, Knowledge Management, Collaboration in 2013 - Same Old, Same Old?

I am really not big on speculative, future prediction posts. There are too many factors in our highly complex world that can derail even the most well researched and thought out theories for how our industry could develop, so I am going to shy away from predictions per se. Instead, I'll consider some general directions, and why other people's predictions make me laugh and make me feel like a Knowledge Management / Enterprise Content Management Grinch! Prepare for a visit from the Ghost of Christmas Past ...
