  • Thanks Ellie - It hasn't had more attention because I've only just uploaded it (so that I can reference it in the comment I left for John). Thanks for favoring it, I guess I should leave it up! :-)

  • I don't know why this didn't get more attention on Slideshare. It is actually quite a fine presentation on enterprise content management. I just saw your comment on Digital Landfill's blog a few moments ago and found my way here.

    Thank you!

  4. 4. Web 2.0 & Enterprise 2.0 • The term Web 2.0 is commonly associated with web applications which facilitate interactive information sharing, interoperability, user- centred design and collaboration on the World Wide Web. Examples of Web 2.0 include web-based communities, hosted services, web applications, social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups and folksonomies. Web 2.0 = Social interaction tools on the WWW • In a report written for Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) Enterprise 2.0 is defined as "a system of web- based technologies that provide rapid and agile collaboration, information sharing, emergence and integration capabilities in the extended enterprise" (Carl Frappaolo and Dan Keldsen) E2.0 = Web 2.0 tools, used inside the enterprise

  15. 15. What is the impact for YOURorganisation?
  16. 16. Social Media in Your Business?• Who is using Social Media in your organisation? – Marketing? Developers? Business Analysts? Traders? – Are they aware of each other? – Is the IT group and the ECM team aware of any of them? – Do they understand that they are becoming “the voice of the company”?• What is communicated? – Is there any monitoring or policy on what is communicated? – Do you have any record of what was said by whom? – Can you defend it to a court or regulator? – Are you capturing & sharing the knowledge that is being accumulated?
  17. 17. Social Media in Your Business?• What about your competitors? – How are they using Social Media? – W hat are they saying about you? – W hat insight can you gather about them?• What about your customers? – Are they using social networking? – Do they expect to find you on Tweeter or Facebook? – Do you know what are they saying about your company and your products?• How is this changing in the next 6-18 months? – Do you have a strategy?
  18. 18. What is the impact for ECM?
  19. 19. Why are we looking at ECM for SM?• All information exchanged on Social Media is unstructured content! – Therefore ECM is the right place to manage it• SM tools provide new paradigms for interacting with ECM• But… SM tools also challenge the traditional Information Management controls
  20. 20. Impact of social media on ECM – New paradigms• Ease of use & familiarity – Slick and intuitive nature of tools – W e use these tools all the time at home – Quicker to get things done• Proximity & Intimacy – Easier to build personal rapport with customers – Content Analytics can provide trends and behaviour insight – New marketing avenues • E.g. ECM TweetJam• Flexibility – 24 x 7 availability: The permanently “on-line” society – Use of the social media tools alongside corporate systems
  21. 21. Impact of social media on ECM – Creating new issues• Volume – Higher information exchange volumes – Higher frequency – Multimedia (large) file sharing – Multiple channels• Control – Blurring of personal/business use – No policy enforcement – think DM on Twitter or Inbox on FB – Often no policy, at all – No records management – Security Implications – No longer IT controlled• Timing – “Y Generation” will expect the working environment to be like this – 15-year olds will be your employees in 3-5 years from now
  22. 22. Social Media and ECM – Use Cases• Collaborative authoring/review/approval (inside & outside firewall)- ECM – Does this go against the point of social media?• Collaboration on Advanced Case Management and BPM – Making businesses more flexible and agile• Marketing - branding – broadcasting – news updates, etc. (tie with W CM) – E.g. ECM TweetJam - #iod2010, @iod2010, fb• Content Analytics – Search & discovery – IBM analytics can look not just internally but at web content etc.
  23. 23. Summary
  24. 24. Summary• Social Media is not a fancy trend – It’s an established new paradigm and it will be around for a while• You need to build a strategy and policy on how your organisation will manage and leverage these tools effectively and consistency• ECM is a key technology part in this strategy. Not only it will be directly impacted, but it can also provide key control components• Social Media change is happening fast! This is not something that you can afford to ignore
