When ECM was first conceived, people created content, it was published, and then nothing else happened until it was time to update the content. Then came the 2.0 world. The world at large went from consuming content to interacting with content. This was a new mindset for the Content Management world. Instead of one author, or a few authors working together, content now evolves over the course of years through the input of any number of people. Discussions about content have become information worth capturing. The line between structured and unstructured information is fuzzy and no longer back and white. The need to share all of this information has also increased dramatically.
This is the slides from the Gilbane Boston, 2010, session that looked at these challenges, and more, outlining how to leverage new technologies and architectures to prepare Enterprise Content Management for the next decade.
