Here's What Happens When Employees BYOD

2014-10-october-have-a-drink.jpg

Security-related headaches around BYOD may make users want to BYOB.

That's what you can conclude from a new survey that shows organizations with bring your own device (BYOD) policies have twice the number of security concerns as other organizations.

“BYOD introduces a variety of potential risks from security and policy perspectives, as well as end-user privacy,” said Eugene Liderman, director of the office of the CTO at Good Technology, the company that sponsored the Mid-Market Mobility Trends Survey.

Microsoft Sweetens Office 365 Collaboration Options

2014-10-october-sweets.jpg

Think collaboration and you think Google. Maybe. Or Box or Dropbox. You don’t think Office 365 really, even though its enterprise collaboration abilities have greatly improved in the past two years. However, that could change. Microsoft has just made it a lot easier to collaborate using Outlook Web App (OWA).

It is doing that by making it easier to share files using OneDrive for Business. Specifically, it is targeting email attachments and email threads that can lead to all kinds of unpleasant problems around versioning.

HR Intranets Go to the Next Level

2014-09-September-Donkey-Kong-Real-Life.jpgSince the early days of intranets, people-related processes and transactions have been one of the main use cases for the intranet. Employee self-service has helped to save real money with intranets improving processes, allowing employees to view payslips, book annual leave, select training and much more.

Too often, however, the HR section of the intranet feels more like a collection of links to other systems than a coherent and consistent digital experience. Leading organizations are now choosing a different path, by focusing on extensive integration with other systems to elevate the intranet user experience around HR processes and transactions.

This not only improves efficiencies and reduce costs, but also makes the employee aware of critical HR information around pay and benefits, recognition and more.

Jim Lundy: Driving Value from Social Business Networks

2014-07-October-Jim Lundy-Aragon.jpg

It's been years since companies began adding in-house social networks to enhance collaboration among employees. Now it's time to get real business value out of them.

Until recently, many companies have struggled to get their employees to supplement their email and IMs by engaging in conversations with geographically-dispersed coworkers. Even more elusive was finding measurable value in their status updates.

That's about to change, according to Jim Lundy, CEO and lead analyst for Aragon Research, who has spent nearly three decades looking into social business strategies, talent management and related fields. During that time, Lundy spent 12 years at Gartner Research, where he formed and led its collaboration and social software team. 

What to Do Before You Become a SharePoint Developer

So you want to be a SharePoint developer.

It’s a topic that has been discussed around the web numerous times. However I still find myself talking to .Net developers who want to become SharePoint developers by jumping right into coding. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to reiterate some key points -- things you should and shouldn't do before you deem yourself a SharePoint developer.

Bring Your Workforce Together with Open APIs

2014-7-october-come-together.jpg

A funny thing happened over the last decade or so: Our work networks got really, really big.

It wasn’t that long ago that even the most seasoned salesperson’s address book would have maybe a couple hundred entries. Now, though, it’s common for the average worker to be connected to more team members, vendors, clients and conference contacts than the 500 LinkedIn counts.

What You Should Know About Mobile Content Creation

2014-6-october-elmo-uses-a-mobile-phone.jpg

Until recently there was a clear divide in the enterprise between mobile devices and less portable computers, like laptops and desktops. The former was used primarily to consume content, while the latter was used to create content.

But those lines are blurring at a surprisingly rapid pace, according to a new report by bigtincan. In its biannual survey on tech trends, the company found there was a 37 percent increase year-over-year in content creation on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. (While laptops are, strictly speaking, also considered mobile tools, they were specifically lumped in with desktops in this survey).

In the simplest terms, that means more workers are using smartphones and tablets — their own or company-provided — to create work emails and documents as well as view them. There are a number of factors behind this trend, said David Keane, bigtincan founder and CEO.

Is Your Intranet Stuck in the Stone Age?

2014-3-October-dinosaurs

The reason no one uses your organization’s expensive collaboration software is because your employees absolutely hate your intranet.

You would think that by 2014, we’d be past stone-age issues like cluttered landing pages or non-existent search options. Sadly, dinosaur intranets are still the reality for many enterprise organizations.

Are you an intranet dinosaur? Let’s bring your intranet back into the 21st century.

What CX Experts Learned This Week #OOW14

Thumbnail image for 2014-02-October-CX Panel.jpg

After 300 sessions revolving around the customer experience at Oracle OpenWorld, a panel of senior practitioners today tried to summarize what they learned about social media, marketing and sales.

There were funny moments during the conference, such as when Oracle's social team learned that #OOW is the hashtag for out-of-wedlock -- not to be confused with #OOW14, the show's official handle.

But there were also serious discoveries, such as how quickly companies are shifting to customer-centric thinking and why B2C companies are adopting B2B tactics.

Social Will Not Succeed Without Business Process Integration

2014-01-October-Integration.jpgIt's been said “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.”

We see this theory in action every day within most corporate environments as businesses try to apply the latest technology without understanding how to integrate it into their daily business processes. Information Technology and business groups make this same mistake repeatedly with the same result -- lack of adoption and usage across the enterprise resulting in a failed implementation. Users don’t hold onto legacy technology because they fear change: they crave change! But in order to be effective, the technology has to be woven into the user’s daily business processes.
