There was a time when the complex needs of a global multinational would be assessed and analyst through incredibly powerful but demanding bespoke software that would cost a small fortune to run. Teams of on site developers would be forever working on these intricate and resource hungry corporate performance management (CPM) systems to get everything working as it should whilst senior management kept on ploughing the budget into its upkeep. Why were they doing this? Because a properly implemented CPM software solution can be an incredibly powerful tool indeed.

The world of intranets was a simple one before. Nobody ever thought about having the right CMS or ECM or even WCMS to support their intranets. But was it really that simple?! I believe everyone who ever worked on an intranet or used an intranet at work had the same old problem, once a page was created where to find it? Who is allowed to create pages? How to edit them? Who approves them?
Pages over pages created and lost in the intranet limbo. Did they really just disappear? No, not really. They just could not be found anymore - due to the lack of a good content management system. Most intranet software come with a CMS (nowadays) and make everyone’s life easier. But what do you really got to know about content management systems to ensure you got the best one for your circumstances. What does CMS or ECM or WCMS (the world of technology loves its acronyms) really mean?

New research from Mimecast finds that the role of the inbox is changing as users spend more than half their working day using email
Information workers’ reliance on email is turning them into ‘Inbox Workers’ who spend the majority of their time on email and shun social media at work, according to new research launched today by Mimecast®, the leading supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security for Microsoft Exchange, Hosted Exchange and Office 365.
The research – the second in Mimecast’s Shape of Email series – surveyed 2,500 information workers in the US, UK and South Africa to explore the average employee’s attitudes to, and frustrations with, email. The report found that on average an information worker will use email for four hours per day; equivalent to more than 37 full 24-hour days over a working year, 111 working days, or 888 working hours.
However, users are also frustrated by the limitations of email. Just one in four users report high levels of satisfaction with their email functionality and one in three expect email and social media to converge in the next five years. It is clear that email needs to evolve if it is to cope with the demands of modern day Inbox Workers, who see email not just as a communications tool but as a file store, search engine and a collaboration platform.

When Meetings Ruled the Day To decode the secret, let’s start by examining a simple concept that traditionally has been critical to teams: meetings. Back in the 90’s, most work, status, decisions, and deals happened in meetings. Meetings were…
