Do You Know What Data Your Employees Are Sharing?

You hear a lot about Shadow IT these days. And we'll probably continue to hear more, according to Cameron Coles, senior product marketing manager for Skyhigh Networks, a cloud security company.

Shadow IT happens when departments or individual employees use technologies that aren’t sanctioned by IT — something that has been increasingly easy to do since cloud-based services arrived.

As CMSWire writer Steven Pogrebivsky noted last year, employees who use a lot of consumer-based apps tend to expect the same ease of use in the workplace. "Personal and work have collided in such a big way that employees often expect that one service will support both needs. In a perfect world that would be fine. But this isn’t a perfect world: information gets leaked, gets lost, gets stolen," he noted.  

While senior management may be away of the risks of cloud-based services, employees are often less cautious and unwittingly create a hefty problem for many organizations, Coles said.

The enterprise content management (ECM) market looks set to change again. According to new research form Boston-based Nucleus Research, enterprises are taking to the idea of storing content on external servers.

Does Box's IPO Pricing Spell Trouble or Humility?

Understated is not a term anyone would use to describe Box co-founder and CEO Aaron Levie. The Silicon Valley whiz kid who does magic tricks on stage, speaks at every conference on the planet (we’re only slightly exaggerating) and is quoted on Twitter as if he were a seer of some sort had his company’s IPO priced today. The Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) provider has officially begun its road show.

The company, which originally filed to raise as much as $250 million last March, today revealed that it expects to raise somewhere between $137.5 million to $162.5 million. It will offer as many as  12.5 million shares at $11 to $13 a share.

Could Cloud Apps Make the Enterprise Sick?

2015-9-January-cloud-usage-category.jpg

Yes, we know, the word “cloud” has become a cliché — so much so, that CIOs are sick of hearing it. Not only that, but the CIO Journal suggests that everything has been cloud-washed to the extent that no one even knows what “cloud” means anymore.

But it’s not the word “cloud” that the information overlords ought to be worried about. God knows that John in Marketing, Sue in HR and Al in Accounting aren’t thinking “cloud” when they sign up for and log in to prosumer Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. All they want to do is to get their jobs done with the best and easiest to use solution. And there are plenty to choose from.

Top 10 Tech Trends from Nucleus Research

2015-9-January-vintage-tech.png

We work on a technology landscape built around cloud computing, social applications, big data and mobile computing, according to Framingham, Mass.-based International Data Corporation (IDC). It's the basis for the development of new solutions for the next 20 years, IDC researchers told us as they discussed the top technology trends for 2015 and beyond.

They're not the only ones with a tech vision. Boston-based Nucleus Research has a different take on how things are shaping up in tech:

"Increased transparency and the ability of every business user to increase their influence and impact on IT priorities will shape changes in the way vendors interact with their clients beyond the sale," researchers wrote in their 2015 analysis released this week. "These trends will impact the core application pillars that support the management of people, customers, production and financial management."

Here's how Nucleus sees the 2015 tech scene shaking up.

That Elusive Data Scientist Might be Right Under Your Nose

Thumbnail image for 2015-09-January-Nosey.jpgComb through the findings of any recent industry survey on the state of big data and big data analytics projects, and you’ll undoubtedly encounter commentary about the struggle to find a so-called data scientist. Despite being one of the most talked about and sought after roles in IT, and despite increasing desire among new and existing members of the IT workforce to develop into data scientists, there remains a dearth of individuals capable of filling this critical role.

It’s a problem that’s not going away any time soon. Given the growing C-level focus on deriving revenue-generating insights from data and information, the need for that elusive data scientist will only intensify in the year ahead. But the demand far outpaces supply, meaning that but for the fortunate, deep-pocketed few, hiring a data scientist from the outside won't be a viable option any time in the near future.

Lexmark Believes ECM Is Good For Your Health

Lexmark moves slowly, but solidly. Its latest move is the acquisition of medical imaging technology provider Claron in an all cash deal worth $37 million.

Lexmark has also announced that once the deal is closed it will incorporate Claron’s medical content management technology into Perceptive, the enterprise content management vendor that Lexmark bought in 2010 for $280 million.

If this all appears to be a little marginal to the main ECM game plan, then think again.

New research by Dallas-based MarketsandMarkets has estimated that the medical document management systems market could be worth an estimated $425 million by 2019, up from $220 million this year. While that is a relatively small amount of money in the overall ECM scheme of things, there are few enough players in the market, making it a lucrative if specialized sweet spot.

Reading the Office 365 Tea Leaves

2015-08-January-Tea-Shop.jpg

Every year around this time “experts” sit around and make predictions about all sorts of things. In some spaces like world politics, this is truly a guessing game. When it comes to Microsoft, it involves more of trying “to read the tea leaves.” Even with the breathtaking pace of change, there are still pretty good signs of where the technology is going.

What to Expect in E-Discovery and Information Governance in 2015

The e-discovery market continued its maturation in 2014, with last year’s hot trends like predictive coding and early case assessment becoming more mainstream and new initiatives around information governance, big data and BYOD/social media emerging as important issues. Electronic information disciplines, such as records management, cyber security and corporate compliance, continued to become more intertwined in the e-discovery process, and the group of stakeholders touching e-discovery has begun to transform its focus into the broader Information Governance (IG) spectrum.

But the transformation remains challenging. Many organizations are only just beginning to treat e-discovery as a standard business process that can be leveraged in larger IG practices.

Office 365 & Sharepoint Online Just Became Irresistible

Forget Google Docs, Box and any productivity tool that anyone else has to offer. Microsoft is committing its brains and its brawn to one thing —being your “go to” for your digital life, at work and at home.

It plans to do this by providing a window to the digital world that feels “more personal and natural,” to use CEO Satya Nadella’s words, via innovations in touch, speech, vision, inking and much more. They will all come together with intelligent agent (can you say machine learning, analytics, PowerBI, Office Graph) and shell technologies.

Push for Strategic Governance in Information Management

2015-07-January-Push-Reset.jpgIn the middle of last year I moved roles from the corporate intranet team to my current role as Director of Technology Strategy and KM for Legal, Corporate and Compliance Group.

Though the roles are quite different, there's one word that links the two together -- governance. 

No Ticket Needed for the Office for Android Tablet Preview

There’s not going to be a device on the planet on which you can’t use Microsoft productivity tools. OK, maybe that’s pushing it a little too far. But that seems to be CEO Satya Nadella’s strategy and he’s executing on it one quick step after another.

Microsoft  just announced that the Office for Android tablet preview is generally available. Anyone can go to Google Play and download the Word, Excel and PowerPoint preview apps. There’s “No wait list. No requesting access. Just go and download the apps!” states the Office 365 blog.
