Wizeline Releases Free Product Management Tool

Wizeline has good news for product managers who have outgrown spreadsheets and presentation software as tools for managing their company’s products.

The product management solutions company just announced its free Wizeline Starter plan, which allows product managers overseeing a single product to evaluate product feature requests, plan and prioritize releases, and develop visual roadmaps.

“It’s all about centralizing the information that's out there,” said Bismarck Lepe, Wizeline founder and CEO, in an interview with CMSWire. “Companies generate a lot of data, but it’s not in a place where it’s very useful. We help companies use the data to make better prioritization decisions, and then track whether the decisions made were the right ones.”

6 Best People Practices In ECM

Surprise, surprise. Nearly half of the companies that responded to research by nonprofit knowledge consultancy APQC report their organizations are poor content managers.

While firms are gravitating toward the slickest, newest technologies, nothing can replace a well-developed enterprise content management strategy (ECM), the research found.

Furthermore, less than 20 percent blamed technology. The problem, they concurred, lies with issues around change management, organizational structure and accountability, the report noted.

2015-26-January-Help.jpg

A good customer experience is critical for any company, no question about it. Whether it’s a product or service being sold, a company can’t survive without satisfied customers. Online customer communities have been shown to be highly effective tools to provide service, relationships and knowledge that crate brand loyalty -- and more profit -- through more engaged customers who will spend more over a longer period of time.

It’s time to take that same approach with the internal employee social network.

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

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

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.”
