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.

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.

If the word "social" brings to mind the teenagers in your life endlessly Twittering and updating Facebook, you might be hesitant to tell your employees to go forth and Be Social. But before you imagine a doom-and-gloom scenario of all of your employees blogging cat pictures, consider the benefits of social technologies.
Social spaces include – but are not limited to – external sites like Facebook or LinkedIn. Your organization might be more social than you think! Consider spaces like Team Rooms, collaboration spaces, or wikis – those social spaces encourage interaction and generate valuable content and knowledge. Your organization can collaborate more efficiently – what took minutes or hours can now take seconds to find using social collaboration tools, which can be established to share information internally, externally, or both.
But how do I ensure that my organization doesn't end up with a mire of too many wikis, blogs, etc. and end up losing track of my content? It's important to formalize a social content strategy, much like your existing content management strategies. You'll want to be sure that you're saving the right things at the right time and ensuring that data is properly stored and managed.
The Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) created a white paper called "Managing Social Content – to maximize value and minimize risk" (click the link to download) that is an excellent starting point for any organization trying to determine "how social should I be?" The paper explores topics such as the benefits of social business, the growing importance of recording interactions from social business applications, current models for social content management, functional requirements for a social content management system, and more.
