In putting today's Digest together, a clear pattern quickly emerged. Management appeared to be the topic du jour. Far be it from me to look a gift horse in the mouth! With the end of the year rapidly approaching, I expect we are all looking ahead at how to better do the awesome work we already do. It is called innovation and it is part and parcel of how we wow them year after year. From predictions to learning for the ghosts of lessons past, this is one of my favorite times of the year for content. Pinhawk is here to help the excitement build!
Break in the Clouds
Putting anything in the cloud, as any law firm will tell you, comes with a daunting array of considerations. Security, the proverbial elephant in the room, is really just one of many issues that must be considered. Judith Lamont, writing for KM World, provides an interesting discussion of what happens once records have ascended to cloud level. Her very informative piece can be found at: Records management in the cloud: a multidimensional issue. Are you shooting for the clouds in 2016?
Pulling Them In
Nick Milton is talking - you guessed it - knowledge management today. Specifically, he introduces us to what he calls the "pull matrix" of KM. As Nick writes, the exciting aspect of this approach is that it is "all driven by knowledge-seeking". He expands on some already interesting ideas posed by NASA and creates a matrix of his own in: How to use the Knowledge Management Pull Matrix. Are you ready to reel them in?
Back to the Future?
EContent's Mike Thompson takes a long, hard look at tomorrow in his latest, The Importance of Future-Proofing Your Content. How do you ensure the lasting legacy of your work in a world that is so rapidly changing? Mike talks to some of the industry's biggest thinkers to help us get our head around this growing concern. You know what they say about an "ounce of prevention"!
