Session slides for my session delivered at SNOUG in Zurich on October 28 2015.
Abstract: Documents are still a backbone of our organisations. Sure, the ERP is often leading but look at how the majority of information is stored and you will find it is in the form of files & documents. Getting people to collaborate on information is crucial for the success and combined knowledge of any organisation and many are investing in platforms like IBM Connections to get this done.
But still, getting people to relinquish their personal file drives, can be daunting. So how do you get people to use the tools and options IBM Connections offers to collaborate on files & documents, what are the problems you can run in and how do you keep control over what's going on? In this session Femke will take you through the basics of Social document management, showing you how to use the different possibilities in IBM Connections to leverage social document/file management and take you through the questions and decisions any organisation using a social networking tool like IBM Connections should ask themselves about managing documents.
Because there is no one-size-fits-all solution and being able to explain the importance and difference between things like folders and tags, when to use CCM or community files and how to safely share files with people outside of your company can make all the difference!
