Versioning: It's more than just for software

401 views

Published on

Have you ever spent hours working on the wrong version of a document? Worse still, have you sent the wrong copy of a document to a client or the wrong specification to a supplier? What about opening up a PowerPoint presentation in a meeting, only to discover that you forgot to copy the updated version off of your desktop?

You're not alone. In a recent survey carried out by Harris Interactive, these are all common problems that impact 83% of all knowledge workers in today's electronic age. However, less common is the knowledge that these issues could easily be solved by something that software developers have been doing for years. Something called versioning.

These slides illustrate how version management, as a discipline, can be easily used and should be deployed as the norm outside of the development environment.
