Mindjet Predictions Module Could Help You Execute Your Ideas

2014-28-October-daydreaming.jpg

The first major advancement in the Mindjet brand after its 2013 merger with Spigit is out.

The San Francisco-based enterprise innovation management software provider debuts this week a new module for the Engage innovation platform it acquired with Spigit. 

The module is called "Predictions," and officials at the social business provider say it essentially turns organizational ideas into execution by finding value through science.

Connecting Workers to Information in the Digital Workplace

2014-27-October-Information-Booth.jpgTwo billion jobs will be lost by 2030 … and that’s a good thing?

So says Paul Miller, author of the newly released book "The Digital Renaissance of Work: Delivering Digital Workplace Fit for the Future." Miller is quick to point out those lost jobs are menial, routine jobs which will be eliminated through automation technology. At the same time, new, more satisfying jobs will replace the lost ones.

This is no far-off prediction. According to Gartner Research, 60 percent of today’s US jobs are non-routine, up from 40 percent in 1975. And automation of routine work is already changing the nature of how "stuff" gets done. For example, in the 2012 book "Race Against the Machine," MIT professors Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee show how the automation of transportation provided by driverless cars will soon eliminate 4.5 million jobs.

New Feature from Redbooth Helps Employees Connect

The workplace is changing. By 2016, Forrester Research predicts nearly half of all US employees will log in to work from home or a decentralized location. That means companies need to find new ways for them to connect, quickly and securely.

To meet this growing need, Redbooth, a workplace collaboration and communication platform, has introduced new desktop and mobile business chat.

Chaos in the Video Content Management Market

Enterprise video content management (VCM) doesn't really fit into enterprise content management (ECM). So it's not all that surprising that it has now developed its own space, however chaotic that may be.

According to Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant for Video Content Management, the video content management market is immature. But it is developing rapidly, driven by parallel technologies like customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise collaboration technologies and e-commerce. And companies like Qumu, Panopto and Kaltura are leading the charge.

Workplace Lessons From a Beehive

Jive's Social Biz Software: You, Me, Community

2014-23-October-Jakkii-Musgrave.jpg

Collaboration software in the enterprise is a “must have." And many of the big software and service providers have integrated social workplace tools into their products. Microsoft has brought Yammer into Office, Salesforce provides Chatter in its cloud, VMWare has SocialCast and so on…

But Jive remains standing on its own and offers something that the aforementioned don’t — its solution centers around you, the end user, and your community, rather than a business process, document or task.

“Jive is the hub that brings it all together,” said Elissa Steele, the company’s executive vice president of marketing and products. “It breaks down silos, it’s built for collaboration and communications,” she adds.

And as such it improves the flow of information, it helps business solve problem faster and creates a competitive advantage.

Post Spigit Merger, Mindjet Works on 'Transformative' Offering

The merger between enterprise software providers Mindjet and Spigit a year ago has produced ... well, you'll have to wait a little more for specifics.

The big reveal on what the merger will bring won't come until the company's conference next March. 

But it promises to be "transformative," according to San Francisco-based Mindjet's new chief marketing officer, Kevin Cochrane, who started last month after stints as CMO at OpenText and product vice president of digital marketing Adobe.

Mindjet is expected to serve up an appetizer of its product suite next week, but the full reveal doesn't come until the March conference, Cochrane told CMSWire. 

Unleash the Power of Captured Video at Work

2014-23-October-Filming.jpgWith a dispersed workforce in an increasingly competitive landscape, valuable data needs to be shared faster and knowledge sharing can no longer be contained to four walls. Experts need to be able to defy distance and address teams of employees that may not all be sitting in the same place. They need asynchronous communications. Some may be in cubicles or conference rooms, others in their homes or cars. It doesn't matter where they are, they need to connect.

The Next Phase of Collaboration: Getting the Job Done

2014-21-October-Collaboration.jpg

While many companies struggle to adopt social business practices, others have found ways to generate real business results through collaboration.

The difference often comes down to a structured approach to social business that was explored yesterday in a CMSWire webinar featuring Jim Lundy, CEO and lead analyst for Aragon Research, Matt Wenger, CEO of ThinkTank and Kim Glover, manager of knowledge management for FMC Technologies. The session was sponsored by ThinkTank.

What's structured collaboration? Lundy explained it's basically a mash-up of existing social techniques with product management technologies augmented by predictive analytics.

“How the heck did I get stuck in this role?”

Admit it, you’ve probably run out of a meeting and into your cube, hidden your face in your hands and bitten your lip to keep yourself from screaming these words or others like them — at least once or twice.

If you’re like most people, you’ve worked in a department or on a project where your “assigned” responsibilities didn’t play to your interests or strengths. Maybe you’re someone who thrives on getting things done and that job has been assigned to the dreamer in the corner who keeps coming up with new ideas instead of acting.

And then there’s that woman who keeps telling everyone how great they’re doing instead of coming up with a plan.

Wouldn’t it be great if your team lead or manager knew the work styles of you and your coworkers better? And for that matter, you’d like to know a bit more about how everyone gets things done too. Like does “soon” mean in five minutes or “I’m still thinking" about the best approach?

It depends on who you’re working with and talking to, of course.

And while it would be great if a job title reflected a person’s work style, that’s usually not the case.

What to Do When Yammer Adoption Stalls

2014-21-October-Stuck.jpgPlenty of companies have early success with Yammer. And then it stalls. Or they hit growing pains and the early enthusiasm wanes.

This scenario can happen to any enterprise social network (ESN), but it seems most pronounced in Yammer, partly because Yammer has such a large market share, but also because its freemium model means that the usual business-case test criteria (and the useful thinking that goes with it) can get bypassed.

Smaller Firms Nip at the Big Dogs in Gartner's Portal MQ

2014-21-october-new-dog-on-the-block.jpg

Gartner cited six trends in its Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals, including a convergence of portal and Web Content Management (Web CMS) needs across enterprises. In addition, long-time traditional, portal vendors and their bloated, unwieldy architectures are losing ground to smaller, lighter portal vendors.

As evidence of both trends, just look at the companies who made it into this year's MQ: Ektron, Jahia, Sitecore, Squiz and WordPress.

Discussion Point: Is There a Secret Sauce for Employee Engagement?

Thumbnail image for discussion-pointHappy employees = happy customers. Yet we've all seen the numbers from Gallup: 63 percent of workers worldwide are not engaged at work, and a further 24 percent are actively disengaged. Businesses recognize the benefits of engaged employees -- for retention, for productivity, for increased customer satisfaction -- but struggle with how to create work environments that support this goal and in many cases feel unprepared to meet the demand.

This comes at a time when businesses are under pressure to differentiate themselves through customer service and at a time of increased connectivity, increased information availability, increased challenges in finding organizational information -- all of this resulting in "overwhelmed employees."

Something needs to give, but where should companies start?
