I have recently worked on an Intranet Seminar hosted by Professional Advantage for over 200 Information Management Professionals. Much of the examples discussed at the event were centred on Microsoft SharePoint. At the end of the event we conducted a survey, where the attendees were asked to rate the most important aspects of an Intranet Strategy to their organisation. Overwhelmingly, Document Management was highlighted as being of the highest importance to those involved in developing an Intranet Strategy for their company.
66% of respondents nominated the ability to manage documents as being of greatest significance. This was followed by Content Management and then Search Capabilities.
For many organisations, document management is fragmented, inefficient, and costly – involving a mix of paper and electronic records, active and rarely accessed documents, onsite and offsite storage and multiple vendors. This doesn’t always have to be the case.
We’d like to offer you a useful guide written by one of our professionals around developing a cohesive document management strategy. The “Creating Effective Document Management Strategies” whitepaper, authored by Roger Pegler, one of Australia’s leading Information Management Solutions Architects, discusses why you want to introduce a document management strategy, and what that strategy should entail to allow you to assess the costs involved.
This is a useful guidelines document from Professional Advantage for any person tasked with identifying the organisational needs around document management.
