Guest post by Steve Studer Offering Manager - IBM ECM Marketing Products and Strategy
Observing the success of social networking and content
search tools reminds me of one of my favorite books called "Connections"
Burke. What I find they have common
is that a business' success is very much dependent on content being utilized
meaningful ways, e.g. connecting that content to the right people who can then
leverage the information for multiple purposes. Mr. Burke sites that one of the
biggest catalysts that changed the world was the establishment of the Library
As James Burke often points out, the library concept expands knowledge transfer at the same time it can be a great catalyst for change. Connecting content with people can be the greatest incubator for expanding abstract ideas. One case in point that happened to me just last week was one of my colleagues found a WIKI link which I had authored and tagged in IBM's Internal Connections site. What I found so interesting was how the person discovered me. I had tagged a document inside the wiki with meta-data tags for content analytics and social collaboration. I turns out this person is working with several customers and was looking for an expert on the topic of Social Content and any presentation materials that could serve as educational tool for the customer. Reaching the assets was only small part of her solution to her challenge. The fundamental piece she needed was connecting with the right subject matter expert who could help present these concepts. I'm happy to say I made her day because she was able to intuitively navigate our internal Social Content community, locating both the content and expert, literally giving life to the meaning “context to content and people”.
In closing, as James Burke so brilliantly points out, the transfer of knowledge is the greatest catalysts for change. Consider what wonders man has been able to expand upon when the transfer of information happened at a wind and sails pace and the medium was primarily paper in the form of books or correspondence. Back then, the sharing of content and knowledge was rarely done face-to-face because of the time it took to travel long distances, e.g. weeks, months and many instances even years. It is unfathomable to me the impact that these new social tools will have when you consider that connecting content with people on opposite ends of the world can now be linked at the speed of Ethernet, not to mention the ability to share that information through multiple social and mobile content mediums. These new technologies will definitely contribute to the "The Day the Universe Changed" or at minimum a Smarter Planet.

When I was the CEO of an independent document capture company (Datacap), I found it painful to listen to customers articulate why they were reluctant to bring in a specialty vendor for technology like document capture. "There is a lot of overhead in managing vendor relationships," is the way the discussion would often start. Datacap, being itself a relatively small company working with only a modest number of vendors, did not prepare me to be sympathetic to these concerns.

A question and answer blog with Cengiz Satir, Program Director, IBM ECM, and Michael Green, Senior Offering Manager, IBM Case Manager as they talk about the importance of businesses having a strategy that delivers a content and case experience independent of device or platform.
The Game Changing Experience Platform for Content and Case…from IBM
Every organization today is looking for ways to improve the overall efficiency at which they operate. In the “always on” world that we live in, it should be no surprise that businesses are looking for more than just a content user interface. They are looking for a consistent content experience that enables their entire business to interact with and manage content regardless of the browser, device, or platform . Equally important is the ability for a business to seamlessly access and manage content coming from different content sources, providing them with the ability to leverage content more broadly in solutions like case management.
Michael to Cengiz:
Q. I keep hearing this term “experience platform”, can you elaborate on what the IBM ECM team is doing in and around this strategy that is being characterized as “game changing”?
A. IBM Content Navigator is both a HTML 5 content experience and a development platform that offers organizations the flexibility to use a single out-of-the box user experience to address advanced document and content operations across desktop applications such as Microsoft Office, mobile devices including phones and tablets, and of course their web browser(s) of choice. This consistent content experience is also the vehicle that delivers a platform for developing custom applications and integrating with IBM and/or third-party solutions, hence the term “experience platform ”.
Michael to Cengiz:
Q. So Cengiz, would you say that this Content Navigator experience platform is a strategy that will help businesses realize rapid adoption for both content and business specific applications like Case?
A. Again, the key here is that IBM Content Navigator is an HTML5 content experience that also includes a set of reusable components along with a consistent modeling layer. This enables the entire ECM portfolio of products and solutions, our customers, and our partners to leverage out of the box functionality, as well as to quickly build apps that service a variety of business needs. In fact, some of the new capabilities now available as part of the latest Navigator release showcase integration points around mobile with IBM Worklight, secure file transfer with IBM QuickFile and of course case management with IBM Case Manager.
Michael to Cengiz:
Q. Before you start asking me questions about the exciting Case Manager release built on top of Content Navigator, can you elaborate further on the new mobile and secure file transfer capabilities?
A. With the latest release of Content Navigator we have updated our native iOS application for iPhone and iPad. The new app will be available shortly for download from the App Store and includes some great features, like the ability to add new documents from the camera or external apps, capture documents for batch processing via IBM Datacap, create searches for content, and now enables IBM Case Manager on your mobile device. New in this release, IBM Worklight is included with Content Navigator. Worklight provides organizations with an advanced mobile application development toolkit for creating native, HTML 5, and hybrid applications for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone. Also shipping with Content Navigator is IBM QuickFile. This integrated secure transfer and sharing experience enables files from IBM ECM to be securely shared both inside and outside the organization by any IBM ECM user.
Cengiz to Michael.
Q. Let me turn the tables on you Michael. Can you tell me how the Content Navigator experience platform will positively impact knowledge workers using IBM Case Manager?
A. IBM Case Manager 5.2 is a mature release with a lot of new features –some of which are because it has incorporated Content Navigator as its UI framework. One of the key benefits knowledge workers will see in 5.2 is the ability to initiate real ad hoc processes using a built in tool. This will finally put the power of decision making into the hands of the decision makers, so that is a big win for knowledge workers –though not necessarily because of the incorporation of Navigator.

In response to: Enterprise Report Management (the other ERM)Have any other countries set a target date to stop using cheques/checks?
In UK news today; cheques (or Checks for American readers) will be phased out by October 2018 due to the payment method being in "terminal decline", but only if adequate alternatives are developed.
Banks and credit providers have been investing in chips which allow a customer to pay when the chip is pushed against a sensor, known as contactless technology. Using a mobile phone to pay is another alternative.

As your organization creates more social, mobile, and content-centric applications the amount of content to be shared and managed can be a little scary. Not only do you need to ensure that the data is available and usable, but you'll need a solid governance plan and security protocol. But where do you begin?
Cengiz Satir, program director for IBM Enterprise Content Management believes that Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) is the answer. CMIS addresses the challenges of content that needs to be shared across repositories and systems while improving operational efficiencies. He agrees with AIIM president John Mancini who says "CMIS is a standard whose time has come."
Mr. Satir has written a white paper covering CMIS "Content Management Interoperability Services, A Social and Content-Centric Wave" that is available by clicking this link. In it, you will find information about how to cut costs and enhance productivity through the use of metadata taken directly from social and mobile applications. Learn how to avoid reliance on inflexible, proprietary ECM solutions, as well as using web 2.0 technologies to drive more informed decision making.
