Congratulations to Lewis Silkin on SharePoint-based Document Management

Michael Sampson - Currents

I met with Jan Durant and Carol Skinner for an demonstration of their document management system for SharePoint. A few years ago they determined that their current document management system (Open Text DM 5) was not up-to-scratch, and decided they could do better by building their own in SharePoint 2007. It took them 3 years, with some problems during the development due to design limitations in SharePoint 2007 (2000 items per folder was a particular problem).

eg, a product manager is tasked to create a toy that appeals to boys and girls. it doesn't have the best blog, the best wiki, the best document management tool. you can have SharePoint Designer if you have been trained in SharePoint Designer", and "you can have a site, if you fill out our form."

Since 1999, my work has been related to Knowledge Management (KM). Already then, KM was a term that was not well recognised; at the time, we did not label our KM-related consulting services with Knowledge Management. Today I am holding an official position in Knowledge Management, still many people do not grasp the term and have a clear understanding of it. “Knowledge Management&# seems to be fuzzy and not specific enough; it does not refer to daily (work) life topics.

This is of course a notion that suits the taxonomist, because the intentional/target approach says all you have to do is predict likely targets and the likely language of search and map this to your taxonomy language and concepts (the document managers can worry about how the content gets tagged to your concepts).

This is when I learned about them and got excited about their impact on knowledge management. Dion mentioned that knowledge management was an early use. Google Wave is designed to serve in this space. It spread virally until the entire organization uses it instead of traditional document management system. The traditional document management system was not optimized for this and lost out.

Response to Jed Cawthorne's "What exactly is 'collaboration' - and who owns it?"

Michael Sampson - Currents

Also in the bigger picture it links back to some posts from late last year on the TiMAF definition of information and information management, because your definition of what constitutes collaboration will impact on who the 'owners' are. Well it may do, because it might be fairly easy to find the business sponsor for records management functionality, or for business intelligence features. Collaborative Management.
