Attendees were drawn from the AIIM board, visionaries and thought leaders working in the information management space, and senior executives from some of the leading information management vendors.

What digital leaders can learn from Melvin Conway and the LAPD

Is your company its own worst enemy when it comes to delivering great experience? Your ability to engage and delight customers and prospects may be falling short because you’re tripping over your own organizational feet. Perhaps it’s time to take strategic action on change management. At DCG, we believe so strongly in the value of… read more >

Companies may be sitting on a treasure trove of customer feedback but don’t realize it

It’s increasingly difficult for companies to get good response rates when they ask customers for feedback. Many buyers are tired of being “invited” to participate in surveys at the end of telephone calls or chat sessions, or of being surveyed at the point of sale, or asked to log onto the website at the bottom of… read more >

Most of the excitement is just that—hype and hot air, plus a whole lot of confusion about what AI actually encompasses.

Kofax, Perceptive and Hyland reshuffle the deck in search of new winnings

Companies that grow by acquisition can be difficult to understand, particularly if lots of different products are bought from multiple sources over a sustained time period. (Take OpenText, for example.) Lexmark Enterprise Software is one such company, having taken several steps to get into–and now out of–enterprise software. With Lexmark International itself under new ownership,… read more >

The Unconference Model: Cure for the Pain Caused by Digital Disruption?

Last month I participated in an event which was refreshingly different from the types of industry gatherings I normally attend as a tech industry analyst and consultant. Cognifide, a digital agency that is part of the WPP group of companies, sponsored the one-day, London-based gathering, which was billed as an “unconference.” Cognifide invited the participants, who… read more >
