ECM In Motion
For a copy of all the presentations from the 2009 Spring UserNet Series you can follow this link to download the presentation from your favorite speaker.
Hi. My name is Ian Story. I'm an IBM customer, advocate, user group president, and in my spare time, I also work for a Fortune 100 financial institution (and prior to that a Fortune 100 manufacturing company). In both my current and previous job, I manage(d) teams of folks that do(did) enterprise content management (ECM), here in Seattle, WA. I'll be posting from time to time on the blog here at the IBM ECM Community, as I've been involved with IBM, and before that FileNet, ECM for nearly 12 years. That surely doesn't mean that I know everything, or even anything, when it comes down to it, but frankly, that's part of the reason I'm excited about this community - the opportunity to learn from each other. But enough about me (if you really care, you can see more on my profile, here at this "easy to remember" url)...
One of the things that I've always heard from my peers, at user group meetings, etc. is that we need to have a forum where the community can work together - whether it's to ask questions of each other, share best practices, influence product direction, or just generally network and get to know each other. For a long time, people have gravitated toward other grass roots communities to do this, whether filesite.org or IT Toolbox (both of which you can find linked from this community in our bookmarks section), as there hasn't been a place to have these types of discussions at IBM. Sure, there used to be some IBM/FileNet mailing lists, but those seem to have died out over time, and it's nearly impossible to find them, more on that in a future post perhaps. Well, now there is a place for these discussions, and you've already found it, since you're reading this!
Now that we've got this great shell setup, with places to share bookmarks, forums to post questions and have discussions, a place to setup your profile/join as a member and connect with others, RSS feeds, etc. - the key thing is that we need participation from people just like you in the community. Your "todo" if you want this to become a valuable resource is to join the community, go out and post some of your favorite bookmarks, post a question or two in the forums, etc. Don't be bashful, I'm sure that you have something you'd like to know about ECM, a problem that is bugging you, or a useful tip to share!
Get out there, add the ECM Community as a favorite in your browser, setup your profile, post some content, and go for it! I would love for my next blog post to be about all the great threads we've got going and casting light on some questions people have asked that are impossible to answer (we'll then get some IBM folks on here to answer them if need be!)...
That's it for now, until next time - when in doubt, reboot :).

Guest Blog by Michael Green - Offering lead, IBM Case Manager
Momentum is a product of the mass and velocity of an object. When something grows in size and in speed it gains momentum. With its feature rich 5.2 release in September of this year, and its increasing number of new customers, partner solutions and implementations, IBM Case Manager is gaining significant momentum in the ACM marketplace.
It is well known that IBM ECM is clearly the ECM market leader with over 2000 customers, but what is less understood is the market momentum of IBM Case Manager. Starting at zero less than three years ago ICM now has several hundred customers and over twenty proven partner solutions, while customer success stories increase month over month. Customers are increasingly reaping the benefits of empowering their knowledge workers and are using the advanced features of ICM to help them make informed, consistent decisions to affect positive case resolutions.
While growing speed of customer adoption is one aspect ICM’s product momentum, the new 5.2 release adds significant mass to its equation. ICM 5.2 is the most mature, feature rich case offering in ICM’s history. Building on the concept of empowering the knowledge worker, ICM 5.2 adds real ad hoc processing to complement its ability to divide processes into discrete tasks. By so doing it enables knowledge workers to be in control of their case files while empowering them with both predefined and ad hoc process management. 5.2 also provides a tighter relationship with information by leveraging the new Content Navigator Experience Framework as its UI component. This provides a developmentally stable platform, better visual design tools and superior document management capabilities. Equally, the analytics story in ICM 5.2 is augmented by the new Case Visualizer capability, allowing users to graphically track case progression and, leveraging Navigator, tighter integration with BI tools like Cognos BI through its HTML 5 technology.
And if this was not enough, ICM 5.2 has a truly mobile client interface, allowing users to download the ICM App from the Apple App Store to enabling case updates, downloads and collaboration for remote users.
The real momentum with IBM Case Manager 5.2 however, is at the level of the knowledge worker. Increasingly enterprises around the world are using ICM solutions provided by IBM Partners to enable their knowledge workers with access to the right information, the relevant documents, the power to make decisions and to use discrete process management to drive those decisions to positive outcomes. Leveraging this market velocity with its mass of new features makes ICM 5.2 a must see.
