Femke: A nice article. But for many small organizations the bulk of their documents fall in between highly structured and unstructured. These are the documents that in times past were kept on a file share and now might be kept in a Quickr document library or similar container that provides deeply nested folders, search and, ideally, a single location for version control and storage/bandwidth savings. The trick for small companies is how to balance that with the kind of social exchange and discovery that is increasingly becoming available through public social media or through enterprise solutions such as Connections.

Hello David, indeed and it is a constant struggle to find solutions that work for the different needs (and sizes) of companies. We traditionally do a lot of work with SMB companies for which products like Filenet and ECM are simply to big and complex but who find file shares to limited.
Some opt for Quickr but if this is too limited still, there are other products out there that offer most if not all document management capabilities like what I listed in this article without the costs and complexity involved of for instance a Filenet solution.

In all my document management projects, both large as well as small I find that no situation is the same. Each company has it's own requirements and wishes and a big part of my work as a consultant is to find a solution to fit the companies document management needs (not the other way round).
It's about planning out your document strategy, and probably even more so when you are thinking about implementing social business.
