Stuck in a Trade Show Whirlwind

This year’s Fall trade show season seemed to blow in and out like a tornado. It is no joke that time flies when you are having fun. We’ve seemed to go from September to December in a blink of a eye. Our whirlwind of a tour started  back when the leaves were just starting to change with multiple local PMI and AIIM events and only picked up speed from there….

For a week we blew into OracleOpen World in San Francisco, CA . If you’ve never attended Oracle OpenWorld, be ready for quite a technology experience. As an Oracle Platinum Partner there is no way we would have missed it!  As a systems integrator for Oracle Middleware, we were eager to help attendees learn how to run more efficient business processes by implementing Oracle IPM and UCM solutions.  There was a lot of interest in our recent implementations of Oracle Webcenter Content 11g. We look forward to going back in 2012 and hope to see you there.

While many of us were at OOW, our ECM expert, John Smetana was attending the AIIM ECM Bootcamp in Minneapolis, MN on October 4.  AIIM members and attendees collaborated on ways to minimize paper and manual processes in core backend activities and discussed better ways to engage social technologies to reach customers.

Next stop landed us in Vegas, Baby! We were a proud exhibitor of the IBM Information on Demand Conference that happens annually at the Mandalay Bay. And we are hoping what you saw there, doesn’t stay there. Take back what you learned from our IBM ECM team to get started on automating processes or to expand your current solution, enterprise-wide. We can wait to get back to IOD in 2012

Next up, we couldn’t have been more excited or proud to host Nexus ’11, our annual ECM Solutions Conference on November 3-4.  With over 28 breakout sessions, world-class Keynote speakers and peer-to-peer networking, this event has become the best education ECM technolgoy event on the West Coast!  Pre-conference training for AIIM certifications and other continuing education credit were provided in the days leading to the conference. Our vendor partners, including Fujitsu, Panasonic, IBM, Kodak and other industry leaders were on hand to show their latest product offerings and answer questions in our Expo Hall. This year’s hot topics included planning your ECMECOSYSTEM™,  Capture solutions from ILINX and Kofax, and implementing mobile and social technologies. You can check out presentations and video from this year’s event or register for what’s in store for Nexus ’13!

And finally, we wrapped up our tour in Sacramento, CA at the Kofax Connect event where we presented with our customer partner, Sacramento County, to share how their are utilizing Kofax KTM to clasify, separate, extract and transform documents.  We were excited to be a part of this valuable event and have the chance to discuss capture solutions with the many Kofax users who attended. If they hold this complimentary seminar again in the Spring you won’t want to miss it.

As frost began to form and the breeze began to slow, it was finally time to click our heels and head home for the holidays. But it won’t be long till we are back out on the road to talk with all of you about implementing your ECMECOSYSTEM and making your information work for you!  Make sure to keep checking our Events calendar to see if we will be blowing into a location near you.

Today concluded the last day for the exhibitors at the conference.  For those that stopped by the ILINX booth and saw the ILINX Capture demo, I hope you walked away learning a thing or two about our product. For those that did not get a chance to see our demo or would like more info about the product, you can visit our official site at ilinxcapture.com.  Alternatively, if you are attending our Nexus 2009 event, you can always swing by and ask for a demo.

As always, if you have any questions/suggestions for the product, don’t hesitate to leave a comment.   Thanks!

A breakout session that I attended today was Getting Microsoft SharePoint Content Under Control with IBM ECM. I was going into the class expecting to see tips and best practices on how to configure SharePoint using IBM tools, but there was no tips or tricks.

The class was really about IBM connectors for SharePoint.  I thought the IBM folks did a good job of providing a nice and easy UI that integrated with SharePoint seamlessly.  Check out screen shots below, taken from my iPhone.  The first picture is the indexing screen and the second is the search screen.

IBM Information On Demand 2009 – Las Vegas Conference Day 1

I attended the grand opening session for the conference today and thought it was well executed.  The official title for the session is “Information-Led Transformation: Lead the Way” and it lasted for an hour and a half with entertainment, live interview from selected IBM customers and some statistics numbers from IBM.

I ended my Day 1 at the conference pondering the question: how can we deliver accurate information to the right resources in the shortest and most useful way?

Enterprise Content Through Mobile Devices

With an estimated 75 million Millennials entering the workforce in the near future, organizations need to adjust the way they make their critical business information available. The newest generation of workers will require access that is both immediate and mobile. Blackberrys, iPhones, Netbooks and other mobile devices are driving the need to make information digital and deliverable on demand.
Helping to make anyplace the office-place, mobile devices also drive efficiencies and the immediacy through which information is received and disseminated. Enterprise-wide content infrastructure manages information going to, and coming from, mobile devices securely through workflow, portals and networks. Additionally, it can bridge the gap between mobile devices and other line-of-business systems processes.
