What You Need to Know about Enterprise Mobility for 2014

2013 was a banner year for enterprise mobility. In case you weren't keeping track or had an actual day job that kept you away from the day-to-day changes in mobility, here's a look at what you missed.

Social Fears and Anxiety in the Enterprise

Social Fears and Anxiety in the EnterpriseIn my work as a consultant I frequently come across organizations that appear terrified of allowing or enabling social features in the enterprise.  It doesn't matter if it's SharePoint’s newsfeed, MySites, Yammer or other social tools -- the thought of introducing these tools internally meets with resistance.

2014 Wish List ... from Robin Daniels

Social Business, 2014 Wish List ... from Robin DanielsI wish 2014 becomes the year when we put users first, not technology. Technology should be an empowering tool to free knowledge workers everywhere to do things they never thought possible. Instead of thinking about technology as a way to control, we should think about technology as a way to liberate.

I wish 2014 is the year when we move from "Mobile first" to "User first." It shouldn't be about the device or devices, but about what's best for the user to get anything done, regardless of job, title, location or industry. Software companies should collaborate to make this priority number one to help information workers everywhere. -- Robin Daniels, head of enterprise product marketing, Box

SharePoint Conference 2014 is just a few months away. The Microsoft-sponsored event runs March 3 through 6 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. Microsoft is firming up the roster of keynote speakers and setting the agendas for about 200 sessions on the increasingly integrated worlds of SharePoint, Yammer, Office, Office 365 and more.

Marketed as an event to help "connect, reimagine and transform," there will be some 24 inclusive tracks for the four major audiences of IT professionals, developers, executives and power users.

Cell Phone Habits of Highly Annoying People [Infographic]

MadonnaYou have to love a business that has the gumption to ban Madonna -- simply for having the audacity to use her cell phone. But that's just what happened in October after the performer dared to ignore the strict no-talking and no-texting policy at the Alamo Drafthouse, an indie cinema chain known for its commitment to cinema-going etiquette.

It was probably the smartest marketing move the chain has made since opening its first location in 1997. It not only demonstrated that it treats everyone equally, but also proved that nonstop texting and talking are simply out of control.

And it left a lot of people wishing they had the power to do exactly what management at that New York City theater did to a performer who clearly thought she was more important than those around her: Stand up, speak out and tell someone to get off the phone.

When you think about streamlining business processes, what comes to mind?

Better collaboration between sales and marketing? Better alignment between legal and research and development?

There’s no doubt there’s a lot that can be improved to facilitate better communication, collaboration and analysis within the business environment. But one area that seems to get overlooked is human resources and benefits.

Social in 2014: The Name Doesn't Matter, What We Do With It Matters

Social in 2014: Names Don't Matter, It's What We Do That MattersFor the past number of years, we debated how the word "Social" was going to fit. While we were having the conversation, it was shoehorned in everywhere we turned. We have media that became social. We have businesses who are suddenly social. Knowledge, commerce and networks, all totally different and new, right? Because they are ... yep, you guessed it, social.

Webinar Recap: Have Social Business Tools Killed the Intranet?

Webinar Recap: Have Social Business Tools Killed the Intranet?Intranets have for many years been a place where companies disseminate information to employees in a top down, static way. As workers become more remotely distributed, the need for online collaboration tools is butting up against the concept of the traditional intranet. Combining the two is a hot trend in the social business world.

9 Ways to Avoid 'Meeting Mania'

Social Business, 9 Ways to Avoid 'Meeting Mania'Many people claim that meetings are a waste of time these days. For those who don’t know how to run them or why to have them, they probably are. But the idea that you don’t need any meetings is a bit silly -- like banning something people don’t like just because they’re too lazy to regulate it. 

More and more I see some companies who’ve stopped having meetings because the person who usually runs them refuses to admit they dawdle and use meetings to satiate their egos. No wonder so many employees are in ecstasy at the notion of not having to attend yet another aimless meeting.

2014 Wish List ... from David Diamond

2014 Wish List ... from David DiamondMy wish for 2014 is that the value of creativity and inspiration will stop playing a supporting role to the pursuit of ROI and measureable goals. Ideas are the only reason a business exists. And while the people that come up with ideas most often might not have C-suite titles, they are often the most important people on payroll.

Let’s stop pretending that business is a numbers thing. Business is an ideas thing, and it’s time the ideas people were better appreciated and compensated for their intangible gifts -- gifts that are not easily replaced, and gifts that cannot be taught in degree programs. -- David Diamond, director of global marketing for Picturepark; author of DAM Survival Guide.
