Taxonomy and Workflow

Are taxonomies a dinosaur of the past or still relevant today? Taxonomies are pretty much under the radar and everyone has placed their hopes on artificial intelligence. What do you do in the meantime and is artificial intelligence all it is hyped up to be?

Be Nice to Your VPA or Just Give Him/Her/It a Powerful Right Punch

The digital workplace. Lots of talk, but I would say we are still at the embryonic stage. When I spot an item of interest on this, I do like to share it.…

Intelligent Search and Information Governance – I Don’t See the Connection

What do you think of this statement? “Intelligent search is a primary component of information governance and should be treated as a core infrastructure requirement, driven by executive management.” Thought so – I believe most people disagree with the statement, and there are probably naysayers among my blog readers.…

Oops! Changing Your Mind About the Cloud? You’re Not Alone

A few years ago, jumping on the cloud bandwagon was a ‘must do.’ Migrating to the cloud seemed a piece of cake – load your data and away you go. Racking up all kinds of savings because cloud storage was free – well, almost.…

Multi-term Metadata - Records Management

What’s the Story About Metadata and a Record?

I read an article published by the State and Local Records Management organization in Texas. What surprised me is that the author went to great pains to explain, and did it very well, why metadata is so important.…

Pesky End Users and Office 365 Labels – to Use or Not to Use, Maybe

One of my pet peeves has always been the tagging of documents by humans, or, as I like to call them, pesky end users. Those of you who read my blogs know that I am just teasing, and I often stick up for those poor souls who carry the burden of assigning accurate metadata to content.…

Leveraging the SharePoint Term Store

For years no one wanted to have anything to do with the Term Store, thinking how ‘hands-on’ it was. Why make extra work? But I guess it started to grow on people and now we receive deployment questions quite often, usually from organizations that want to leverage their SharePoint investment and need accurate search results.…

Is Your Records Management Typical? Oh, so Sorry

Industry analysis shows that the typical approach to records management is not very successful and is also not integrated with an overall information governance plan. The growth of unstructured data, new requirements to track all formats of content, including social, the need for proactive preparation for compliance mandates, and the potential for unexpected litigation can prove challenging to organizations.…

How’s Your Security Posture? Exhausted Probably

The number of corporate data breaches has reduced for the first time in five years, according to recent reports. I don’t know, should we believe it? I wonder, if we ignore the problems created by cybercriminals, will they just fade away? I kind of doubt it. If it were true, it would be welcome news to those enterprise security teams that find themselves overwhelmed.…

Insider Versus Outsider – Where Is the Real Threat? How One Company Solved its Data Breach Problem

Human activity can be risky. IT administrators may get bogged down with trivial items, become complacent, and adopt an ‘if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it’ attitude.…

Boolean Operators and AI? I Am Confused

I may be totally off base on this, so jump in and straighten me out. These days, you don’t see any news, portals, or periodicals that don’t push how wonderful artificial intelligence (AI) is. But I am not going to get into a debate on the benefits and drawbacks of AI right now.  

In traversing the Internet, I have come across many software vendors touting they are using AI in their products. I ask myself, when did this happen?…
