According to High-Tech Bridge, the experiment and its results can be reproduced by anyone, as we tried to be as neutral and objective as possible. Continue reading

Power to the people: Firm urges delegation of content creation via WCM

Web content management choices

Today’s web content management systems must encourage and empower site owners to delegate content creation and management responsibilities

By ECM Plus staff

ECM Plus +++ For years, the creation and management of web content fell under the auspices of one or two individuals within an organization. They may have been marketing managers, IT managers, or the once-ubiquitous “webmasters”. The advent of web content management systems (WCMS) changed all of that years ago, but many companies and organizations still rely on a disproportionately small number of staff to keep their website content moving.

Gone in a Flickr

Ve haff vays of mekking you veep! Yahoo’s Flickr fsck-up sends shock waves through cloud content communities

BY PAUL QUIGLEY

ECM Plus – Just when you thought it was safe to entrust all the crown jewels of content to the cloud, along comes a yarn that send shivers down your spine and makes the hairs on the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Call it asset stripping, call it digital downsizing, call it what you will, all such expressions of loss pale into insignificance on hearing the news of this one poor German fellow who watched helplessly as four years worth of thousands of his priceless photos were consigned to the ‘Great Recycle Bin’ in cyberspace following a bizarre sequence of events which culminated in cloud image behemoth Flickr deleting all his precious pictures in one fell swoop at the push of a button.

Alfresco launches Enterprise 3.4 into social content space

BY PAUL QUIGLEY

ECM Plus – Alfresco has just announced Enterprise 3.4 as a major new release that promises to deliver an open source platform for social content management.

The company said that this platform will be used by developers and companies to build applications where enterprise content is ‘social-ready’, or shared, collaborated on and syndicated across the web as well as the standard, boring, bureaucratic chore roles of being captured for compliance, retention and control.

Alfresco added that Enterprise 3.4 was now purpose-built for managing content in a social world.

It said that enterprises are increasingly deploying social business systems like Jive, Salesforce.com’s Chatter, Lotus Quickr, Drupal and Liferay, among others, in the hopes of ‘making employees more effective’.

However, Alfresco noted that these social business systems were also creating volumes of unmanaged content if left un-checked.

“Social Content Management is where the capabilities of social business systems and traditional enterprise content management (ECM) meet,” said John Newton, Alfresco CTO. “It is communication and collaboration with a business purpose and it requires a platform that can deliver content for discussion and engagement that then captures the results of that discussion. Alfresco Enterprise 3.4 is that platform, delivered as open source with open standards like CMIS, JSR-168 and RESTful APIs, in order for developers, customers and our partners to manage content and expose repository functionality inside of social business systems.”
