Where Do I Share and Store My Information?

Introduction Most companies have loads of tools to help employees share and store information. Because we have so many of these tools, it can be hard to decide where to share and store my information. The company I work for also has this problem. I was asked to explain the differences between the tools and help our employees decide where to share and store information. As promised, I would share this with you . This is what I came up with. Please keep in mind this is focused on our situation. But I think and hope this could be of help for other companies as well. If so, let me know. If not, also let me know! Situation Every employee within searches, creates, collaborate and stores information. Several methods and solutions support these processes. However many employees wonder where and when to share and store certain information and what solutions are provided to support the above-mentioned processes. This post gives our guidelines on storing and sharing information using these

Stop Using E-mail

Nice presentation (9 min.) by Luis Suarez to whom I've been pointing regularly on my blog. This is his presentation at the Web 2.0 Expo in Berlin (added in below). It gives a good overview of how he's trying to stop using e-mail for the wrong reasons and what he experiences doing this. I've asked the question before, but I'd really like to hear more from Luis about the time he used to spend on email and the time he now spends on email and the social tools. (Something for the Sweettt podcast , Luis?!) Also relate to his posts on day 1 , day 2 and day 3 of the Expo. Tags van Technorati: email , information overload , web2.0 , enterprise2.0

New Blog: Fragmented Living

A colleague of mine (and ex-carpool-er) just started a blog I'd like to point you to. It's called 'Fragmented Living' . Thinking back of all the discussions we had about knowledge management, information management, innovation, living and complex systems and organizations, etc this blog should be interesting to follow! Good luck, Harold! Tags van Technorati: complexity , blog , knowledge management

EMC also Focusing on Personal Information

Ran into this interesting news via Michael Sampson's blog : EMC started a company that will focus on personal information management. I've always wondered why the large enterprise information management vendors never adequately addressed the personal information space. I found they basically said: use the enterprise system, even if it doesn't fit your personal way of working. Will Decho, the new company, truly address this gap? I'm really curious if they will and will follow this step. Also refer to EMC press release and Decho site (which basically tells you Decho now 'only' sells a backup service).

Tribalization of Business

Just wanted to point to this very nice interview on the O'Reilly Radar blog with Francois Gossieaux of Beeline Labs . This short (6 min.!)interview gets into all the key issues of communities and organizations ('tribalization of business'). That's really impressive. What I really liked was what Francois said about measuring the success of communities. Andrew McAfee recently wondered if we should introduce 'enterprise 2.0 metrics' . I wasn't sure if this was a good idea and suggested: Can’t we ‘just’ ask for stories and try to quantify them? Ask employees to tell managers how the tools helped them or others become more productive. Francois says the same for communities: the stories about the communities tell you their success. Again, great interview. I'm definitely following the Beeline blog from now on! Tags van Technorati: community , communities of practice , enterprise2.0

Trying Taglocity: tagging Outlook

Well, just ran into Taglocity . I read through their site to see what they offer. I must say it all sounds very interesting. I'm curious how Taglocity compares to Xobni . I've been using Xobni for some time now and am pretty enthusiastic about the tool. Is Taglocity even better? So, I'm de-installing Xobni to try Taglocity. (I don't want 2 sidebars in my Outlook and I'm don't want to try them both at the same time.) One think I'm really curious about is tagging in Outlook like in Gmail. That would be great! (I use Outlook 2003 and heard that 2007 has tagging functionality.) So, I'll be using Taglocity for the coming weeks. I'll let you know what my experiences are. My evaluation questions are: how does Taglocity compare to Xobni in general? is Taglocity as social as Xobni? are the Taglocity tags as good as Gmail's? can tagged emails also be retrieved after they've been archived and/or moved? is Taglocity secure (als

Anecdote: When collaboration becomes the way we work If people understand the values of the company, they should be able to self organize to work on the most interesting problems. And if they haven't, or not able to do that then you haven't talked to them about what's important.

Implementing Enterprise Microblogging with Yammer

If you follow my tweets you know I started ' Yammer '-ing in the company I work for. I thought: Let's try this and see where it goes! So, we're just experimenting and I don't know if this will hold. Well, I started Yammer-ing on Sept. 22. I was just curious if someone else from the company I work for was already there. And I wondered how Yammer compared to Twitter. Well, I was the first one in Yammer and very alone. ;-) Of course I asked some colleagues that Twitter to join, but their first response was: one microblog app is enough. Understandable... For about a month I was completely alone, talking to myself regularly. But, then something strange happened. Colleagues started joining Yammer. I'm not sure how it happened (- because I was pushing them, telling them about enterprise microblogging?! -), but it happened. And now it's taking off. The swift growth has to do with the fact the colleagues fill in the 'Org Chart', which (most people don'

Blogging Internally and Externally from One Platform

For some time know I've been looking around for a blog platform with which you can post internal and external posts. (I wrote about it here and here .) I'd like to be able to write a post and decide to post it internally and/or externally from one platform. (There's a caveat though, when you have an external blog post, which you would like to extend for internal use.) Well, it looks like this has become possible with the new version of SocialText (3.0). I haven't tried it yet, but Robert Scoble's interview with Ross Mayfield (with demo of '3.0') seems to point in that direction. Am I correct? What I also really liked about the new SocialText was the online/offline feature! Great thinking and essential stuff for the mobile workforce. It also integrates with Sharepoint, SalesForce, etc. For me, SocialText is a true inspiration for current (usually cloggy) corporate Intranet's and maybe the foundation of the intranet of the future.
