Pair Writing: A Revolution in Content Creation

There is an accepted wisdom that content creation must be a solitary activity if you want quality and creativity. But this is a consequence of the content tools (pens, typewriters) that have been available. As collaborative, network-oriented content tools emerge, we will see a lot more collaboratively created content.

Have Status Meetings at Work? No, No, No and ... No

2015-22-January-meeting-humor.jpg

Hey, whatcha working on? How's that project coming?

We've all prepared for these questions in upcoming meetings. We work hard, and we want people to know it. Nothing wrong there.

Well, except maybe that preparing for those questions actually takes longer than the work we do.

Ah, the proverbial status meeting. Something that should die -- now, some say.

Clarizen, an online project management software provider, thinks this way. Of course, their product is a good replacement for the "status meeting," they think. But the San Mateo, Calif.-based tech company did produce some food for thought in its new survey about status meetings.

FaceBox at Work: The Newest Collaboration Solution?

2015-22-January-Secret.png

We are hardly out of the 2015 gate and the enterprise collaboration market is already experiencing a shakeup.

Facebook released Facebook at Work on Jan. 14, the same week Box resuscitated its delayed IPO event, slated to launch tomorrow. While seemingly unrelated, these two events underscore the continued significance the "consumerization of the enterprise" trend will continue to play in 2015, especially as it relates to collaboration.

Jostle Adds Secure File Sharing, Viewing to its Intranet Platform

Jostle is adding a secure file sharing and viewing component to its existing cloud-based intranet solution to provide a higher level of "robustness, security and functionality," Jostle’s CEO Brad Palmer said.  Through an integration with Citrix ShareFile, Palmer said Jostle will be better able to meet the needs of its clients.

The company introduced a file sharing and discovery service two years ago. But as customer use of the search feature has scaled and the platform attracted more enterprise clients, Palmer said the need for a more reliable and robust solution became clear. So Jostle went shopping for a partner and ultimately chose Citrix, due to its reputation in the industry, Palmer said.

Stay Alert: The Future of the Activity Stream

2015-21-January-Information-Overload.jpg

How do you keep track of everything going on that might affect your work? It’s probably a combination of internal and external social media, email, word of mouth and a whole range of other notifications, an approach that can be both ineffective and overwhelming. Even if you achieve the pristine state of inbox zero, there’s no such thing as Twitter zero.

4 Trends in Workplace Communication [Infographic]

Flexible hours, the ability to work remotely and more time off will motivate employees to work harder in 2015. But there’s another motivator on this list you might not expect: better communication tools.

This is just one of the findings of a recent survey conducted by uSamp Research on behalf of RingCentral. The results were published in an infographic, Business Communications are “Always On” in 2015.

“What we’re seeing is a change in which people communicate, and how business communication is perceived,” said Kira Makagon, EVP of Innovation for RingCentral. “It has a lot to do with an employee having the freedom to work from anywhere, wanting the freedom to work from anywhere and almost demanding the freedom to work from anywhere.”

How One Female Web Technologist Broke Barriers in Tech

2015-19-january-martha-elliott.jpg

Martha Elliott remembered walking into the office to interview for a web designer position when she was 40-years-old.

“The interviewer,” Elliott recalled, “looked puzzled and said, ‘I'm sorry we're not looking for receptionists at this time. We're looking for a web designer.’”

“I have to say that the early years were not easy,” Elliott told CMSWire about her effort to break into tech. “As a woman, and especially as a black woman, you had to constantly prove yourself over and over again.”

Companies Desperately Seeking IT Talent

2015-16-January-Kelly-Bedrich-1.jpg

It would be a simple matter, it would seem, to hire a senior developer with Microsoft Dynamics skills. Yet, Kelly Bedrich, the director of IT for the non-profit firm APQC (the American Productivity and Quality Center), has been having difficulties filing the position.

He has his theories.

One is simply that local talent who can perform development, training and tier 2 support is scarce, he tells CMSWire.com. Another: organizations are starting to realize how critical the customer relationship management (CRM) function is to effective sales and marketing "so they are protecting their resources," he said.

It's not as though the non-profit was trying to hire one or more data scientists, a highly-sought skill. But then again, it might as well be. In general, the demand for IT talent has typically outstripped the supply and as the economy continues to recover that is hardly changing.

What Enterprise Apps Could Learn From Consumer Apps

2015-16-January-Cats-Dogs.jpg

Development of mobile apps for consumers and enterprise are two different animals. Consumer apps come from a broad range of sources, from individual hobbyists building Flappy Bird clones to publicly traded kings of the consumer app industry unleashing Candy Crush Sagas upon the workers of the world. For many consumer app creators, the approval process and product cycle is not complicated: make your game or widget, get the bugs fixed, and put it out there for everyone to enjoy. If it’s engaging and you catch viral lightning in a bottle you might see the ROI shortly, from ad impressions or in-app purchases.

Enterprise app development typically includes many more levels of approval, including getting buy-in from an organization’s CTO and other key stakeholders. This can result in more refinement to ensure all the requirements of the enterprise are met, but this comes with the risk that the app could sprawl to become an over-packed, unwieldy platypus.

Slack Extends Collaboration Offering with Plus Plan

Collaboration software provider Slack launched some new features this week that target companies with growing teams.

The San Francisco-based provider is betting on these teams needing help with single sign-on, compliance exports, a 99.99 percent uptime guarantee and 24/7 premium support. It's called a Plus plan, a new option priced at $12.50 per user per month.

"Slack puts all your team communication in one place and integrates with the tools you need to get your job done," a Slack spokesperson told CMSWire. '"They offer a better, more seamless experience than anyone else."

Office 365: 2014 Highlights, Preparing for 2015

2015-15-January-Look-Back.jpg

We've heard a lot about the "new" Microsoft over the last few years, complete with promises of fast innovation and the impact this would have on existing products. Microsoft delivered on these promises in 2014, with the addition of many new features and products within Office 365. It was a year of open communication filled with Roadmaps, Yam Jams and User Voice sites. In many ways, 2014 was a fulfillment of the promises made by Microsoft at the last SharePoint Conference.
