In articles this week, OpenText's Jennifer McCredie spoke with 570News on the growing cloud computing trend in the corporate and consumer market. While cloud computing is not new, it is gaining popularity due to quick and easy access to content without having to store it. Deb Lavoy shared her view on the latest corporate news in a CMS Wire article but did so through a different perspective, one that she calls "the lens of purpose". Graham Pullen, Vice President Asia Pacific OpenText, took part in a ZDNet document security roundtable and cited three current disruptors in business: the cloud, mobility, and social networking.
On OpenText's Innovate Blog this week, Chief Strategy Officer Tom Jenkins recognizes that content production is outpacing regulation and creating a need for new content management strategies; Scott Bowen laments on the importance of checking the facts before publishing; and guest Content World video blogger, Sherri Taylor, gives a preview of what's to come at the Innovation Lab at Content World 2011 in Orlando.
In addition, the new OpenText Online blog went live on Innovate this week! This blog covers topics around the Knowledge Center, Communities, CSS (My Tickets), and the OpenText corporate website (www). Check out the first two posts by Karen Weir, The Blog to End All Blogs and OpenText...Drinking Our Own KoolAid.
On Conversations, Martin Sumner-Smith provides some background on the new OpenText Online blog, and Alex Benay offers further insight into the Public Service Without Borders solution. Alex also proudly points out that the new state of the art Ottawa OpenText office was on clear display when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge passed by during the Canada Day Celebrations.
Also this week on Conversations, Jennifer McCredie uses a large Canadian bank as an example of the idea that web centricity can and will drive customer centricity; the Fax Solutions Blog clears up some dialing rule questions with a post all about the 'plus' sign; and Marci Maddox gave us a refreshing reminder that you can't believe everything you read.
In other blogs, Lubor Ptacek discusses buzz words picked up from his time at the Enterprise 2.0 conference and fills us in on the QR code obsession. He also addresses a classic chicken and egg scenario in another blog exploring whether content management is a feature of collaboration or collaboration is a feature of content management. OpenText Metastorm posted two new blogs, one focused on the transformation from IT to BT, and the other confronting the social stigma that workers face when trying to employ social BPM.
Connect, share, create, implement! Collaboration is key to any innovative project. The ability to communicate in an efficient and interactive manner facilitates productivity. This week read how Cohn&Wolfe achieved this through integrating OpenText Collaboration. The Brain Institute at the University of Utah also employed our technology solutions in order to expand brain research through collaboration.
