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.

Document capture improves customers' experience at the bank
I've recently worked with one of our banking customers in Europe. When I first met with them a year and a half ago, they were determined to improve their customers' in-branch experience, particularly when the customer would come in for a paper document-related transaction (as opposed to simply depositing or removing money).
Before Datacap, the customer would sit with a bank officer who would review the documents for completeness, thank them, and instruct them to come back the next day. Then the officer would type content from the documents into the relevant bank system, as well as faxing or sending the physical documents to a central location.
Now the process has been revolutionized. The paper documents are still there, the customer is still sitting with the bank officer, but once the officer takes a quick look at the document, they drop them into a document scanner at their desk. Then they wait (see my blog about that wait and why it is important and a challenge!). The goal is a turn around time of around 15 seconds, but at peak times it might take a minute.
While the bank officer and the customer are having a quick chat, a lot is happening in the background:
- document images are sent from the branch to central servers
- OCR and ICR, document classification, image enhancement, data validations all take place
- the results are sent back to the branch
Then the officer can review the electronic document, sign off and complete the transaction.
Accuracy is improved because the software will flag problem fields for review. So the bank officer looks only at fields with suspected problems. Worse case scenario: they review every field and it takes as long as it would to do manually. Either way, accuracy is improved because you have one pass of automated data entry and one pass of review by an experienced human.
Fast and accurate transaction make for happier customers
Document capture helps make sure the customer's high expectations are speedily met, so they can leave feeling good and maybe even with some additional money in their pocket! Happier customers make for happier banks who can more easily acquire new customers more easily and retain their existing ones.

Now that P8 4.5.1 has GA'd, here's another big information deliverable -- customized installation documentation.
Basically, we've heard loud and clear from you, our customers that about 1/3 of the two main installation documents (Plan and Prepare Your Environment for IBM FileNet P8 and IBM FileNet P8 Platform Installation and Upgrade Guide) apply to your environment. During this release, we converted the source to XML DITA and applied metadata so that we can produce shortened PDFs of the documentation based on specific metadata values, such as: operating system, application server, database, LDAP server, and so forth.
We've pre-built 18 different combination's that we think best match what you are using:

The vehicle and equipment rental world is one of the most ultra-competitive business segments around. Products, prices and strategies change to keep pace, but understanding customer feedback and adapting the business accordingly will continue to drive market share and success.
But getting customer feedback can be a challenge – for Hertz and for all companies. As the world’s largest general use airport car rental company, Hertz gets an amazing amount of customer feedback daily, including thousands of comments from web surveys, emails and text messages.
The question is – how can Hertz best leverage those insights at both the strategic level and the local level to drive operational improvements?
Hertz and other companies have been using surveys to gather customer feedback for years. A well-constructed survey can provide a lot of quantifiable information on customer likes and dislikes, but it doesn’t answer “why” a customer feels a certain way. That requires written or verbal feedback.
Until recently, there was no automated way to analyze this type of information. Hertz location managers had to read each customer comment submitted and then manually categorize it for basic reporting and analysis. This approach was very labor-intensive and inconsistent, as comments were categorized based on a manager’s personal interpretation.
But help arrived. Hertz has been working with Mindshare Technologies, using its “Voice of the Customer” system to transform customers’ quantitative feedback into actionable intelligence. In the next evolution of Hertz’s system, Mindshare teamed up with IBM to also take the verbatim text comments Hertz was collecting and transform these open-ended comments into actionable information.
How? By using a series of linguistic rules to categorize comments received with descriptive terms such as Vehicle Cleanliness, Staff Courtesy and Mechanical Issues. The software also flags customers who request a callback from a manager or those who mention #1 Club Gold, Hertz’s expedited, frequent renter program.
Hertz’s analytics solution, which includes some of the same question-and-answer technology as IBM’s Watson Jeopardy! system, has improved the accuracy and speed of the tagging and analyzing process, almost doubling what had been achieved manually, setting the stage for more reliable analytics.
Free from manually tagging comments, Hertz field managers can now focus attention on performing deep-dive analysis on the information, quickly identifying trends or issues and adjusting operational service levels accordingly. Real-time identification of issues means that rapid problem solving solutions can be quickly deployed.
For example, wait times at car rental locations can be a contentious issue. The faster and more efficient the car rental/return process, the more likely the customer will become a loyal patron. Using Mindshare’s feedback software, Hertz location managers are able to effectively monitor both quantitative survey responses and open-ended customer comments to deliver top customer satisfaction scores for this critical level of service. In Philadelphia, for example, survey feedback led Hertz managers to discover that delays were occurring during certain parts of the day. They quickly adjusted staffing levels and ensured a manager was always present during these specific times.
Vehicle cleanliness is also another important value point for customer satisfaction at Hertz. With Mindshare Text Analytics, featuring IBM Content Analytics, Hertz is now able to quickly identify new and unknown issues via detailed customer feedback. By assuring greater attention to cleanliness, complaints have decreased and overall consumer satisfaction has improved.
For consumers, the good news here is that the internet and new social media technologies have made them more connected, empowered and demanding. Since the average online user is three times more likely to trust peer opinions over retailer advertising, the challenge for Hertz – and retailers in general – is to continue to tap these new technologies that pay close attention to what customers are saying.
Working with the Mindshare-IBM team, Hertz has been able to better focus on improvements that customers care about while removing a time-consuming burden from location managers. This has greatly improved the effectiveness of Hertz’s ‘Voice of the Customer’ program and has helped build on the Company’s reputation for delivering superior customer service.
