Engaged, Informed Employees Get the Job Done

This month's theme for CMSWire is about taking the focus of Customer Experience Management (CXM) and applying it internally to the enterprise, particularly to Enterprise Information Management (EIM) environments.

Initially that gave me pause for thought, because although I work for a large organization where the focus is very firmly on the customer first, and everything I do, even in an internal role, has to be linked to a positive impact on the customer, I am certainly no expert in CXM. So, while I think I understand the overall focus of CXM, my first step was Wikipedia to check on the definition of the term!

Advice From Counsel Reveals e-Discovery Maturity, Strategy

Since I began covering e-Discovery in 2008, a lot has happened. Companies have been hard-pressed to come up with a cost-effective, yet manageable way to collect, gain access to and review relevant information created within its four walls and in the cloud. Companies experimented with outside counsel and in-house e-Discovery platforms. Vendors promised exciting new technologies from enterprise search to workflow management to predictive coding, aimed at decreasing cost, effort and risk, while increasing reliability, accuracy and defensibility. And yet, we still don’t always know what’s working well within the enterprise. Thanks to a new report by FTI, we have an inside look at how companies are using e-Discovery, their best practices and their expectations for the future.

Marketing the Benefits of Enterprise Search & Search Vendor Products

For the last few months I have been working on a project for the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (an agency of the European Commission) to prepare a techno-economic assessment of the enterprise search industry and market in Europe. I’m not in a position to disclose the outcomes of the project, but in the course of the research I did examine how organizations went about selecting an enterprise search solution, and looked at the websites of around 60 vendors. At the same time I was working on an intranet strategy project for a European company with over 40,000 employees world-wide and no enterprise search capability! In this column I’ve summarized some of my conclusions from these two projects.

7 Ways to Ensure Your Lucene/Solr Implementation Fails
