J. Boye, 20.12.2009: Ways of improving checklist RFPs
by J. Boye: "I have previously advised that it is best to avoid Request-For-Proposals with checklists of requirements (e.g. “Do you support XYZ?) when selecting a new web platform. This advice remains solid, but unfortunately many buyers are unable to convince their procurement team to divert from their usual checklist-based process. Here some further assistance if you encounter this scenario"

Mashable, 18.12.2009: Google Wave's Massive Potential for Business Users
by Howard Greenstein: "Google Wave (Google Wave) is an innovative new way for people to communicate and collaborate. But as Gina Tripani, author of The Complete Guide To Google Wave, noted in her recent keynote at the recent Web 2.0 Expo in New York, Wave is designed for power users. Wave is hard. There are a lot of features, all bundled together, and it can be intimidating for anyone to just look at it and decide “this is a great project management tool” or “this is the way we’re going to manage our notes about the proposal.”"

by Jon Marks: "Now this I agree with more than the CMS Watch version. Parts of ECM include Document Management, Records Management, Collaboration, Imaging, Workflow and all that good stuff. It is these pillars that allow a business to manage their content. The end game of all of these technologies is content sitting in a repository that can be easily found and consumed. The includes all the fun with versions, security, compliance and anything else you’d want to do with it. But it does not include setting up web based delivery channel that exposes some of this content. WCM should not be considered part of ECM."

IT and media are clearly very different industries, but there are parallels from which perhaps we can learn. Let me discuss three such potential lessons."

by CG Lynch: "Microblogging in real-time applications like Twitter and Facebook has forced us to reevaluate how we utilize older communication technologies like instant messaging (IM) and e-mail. As Andrew McAfee (@amcafee) has pointed out, social software is by no means a replacement for those technologies inside businesses. But when used properly along side them, it can eliminate the time you waste finding the right people and information to do your job."

The Forrester Wave™, 12.11.2009: Enterprise Content Management Suites, Q4 2009 - Forrester Research
by Stephen Powers et.al.: "In Forrester's 70-criteria evaluation of eight enterprise content management (ECM) suite vendors, we found that IBM, Oracle, EMC, and Open Text lead due to breadth and depth of functionality and a continued focus on end-to-end ECM needs. Strong Performer Microsoft lacks depth in certain areas of ECM, with a focus on business content rather than transactional or persuasive, but its lighter footprint and collaboration functionality continue to give it market momentum. Other Strong Performers include Hyland Software — traditionally focused on imaging and archiving but expanding into records management and workflow — and HP, which has leveraged its 2008 TOWER Software acquisition and offers document management, imaging, and records. Finally, Contender Alfresco Software, with an open source offering, lacks overall ECM suite breadth, but it's gained traction with enterprises looking for an ECM alternative with a lower-cost entry point."

by Jhodig Marcano: "As I see it, this is a battle between users, that want an easy way to access their content, and administrators (”super users”), that want an easy way to manage data (user’s content). At the end, companies adopt one software over another depending on who is paying for it. So I would make the first thing in my wish list a true content management system that people like to use."
