    Facing the Facts About Information Management

    In the comments on my last post, someone lamented that it didn’t seem to matter too much whether you stayed on shared drives or moved to an enterprise file synch and share (EFSS) product like Box or Dropbox, that SharePoint seemed to be universally hated and that no one was

    Office 365 is a Disaster Waiting to Happen

    I'm hesitant to add another blog to the pile about Office 365, because there are more than enough talking heads out there prognosticating. But I spent the last week at the Houston ARMA Spring Conference talking to clients, vendors and other service providers.

  • We Need Fewer Information Managers and More Business People

    I recently gave a keynote presentation at a records management conference in Salt Lake City on how records managers need to evolve to meet the demands of the changing landscape of corporate information management.

  • Where Should Information Governance Live?

    Where Should Information Governance Live?

    There are some perennial questions in the world of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) consulting. What is the most common reason ECM fails? What is the most important element in good governance? Can’t we just use one tool for all our content? Most of the time, these are straightforward to answer

  • Where Document Management Went Wrong

    Where Document Management Went Wrong

    Ask anyone who works in an organization and they'll tell you: managing business information well is a struggle. This is true for structured data (like customer, product or transaction information in enterprise systems), but even more so for unstructured data, e.g.

  • Technology Can't Ever Solve the Information Management Problem

    We’re in an exciting time for information management: cloud storage has become ubiquitous, mobile devices provide a functional (though not yet entirely optimal) experience for end users, disruptive entrants have pushed the envelope, venerable leaders have begun to execute on powerful innovations, and, at least in theory, managing information better

    We're Gonna Govern Information Like It's 1999

    The 2014 conference season is drawing to a close, and I’ve had the opportunity to take in what’s happening in information management, from the vendor perspective, the practitioner perspective and the business perspective.

  • Are You a Cost Center or a Profit Center?

    Are You a Cost Center or a Profit Center?

    No matter what your role or function in your organization, it boils down to this: are you a cost center or a profit center? That is, do you cost the company money or do you make the company money? And as anyone who’s involved in a cost-center role will tell

  • You Will Never Get Enterprise Content Management Right

    You Will Never Get Enterprise Content Management Right

    No one will. At least not in the way we typically think about it. We all seem to want to solve it narrowly, tactically, with concrete steps we can begin taking today, making progress step by step until we’ve got ECM down. We think we need to find the

  • Information Management Will Never Be Easy

    Information Management Will Never Be Easy

    I get the opportunity to speak with hundreds of folks a year about managing information at organizations, and probably the most common requirement I hear is, information management needs to be easy and user friendly -- if users have to do anything more difficult than what they do now, it will fail.
