Portals and KM

I Googled it and did not find anything. One example is when IT invests in an expensive document sharing system and employees use Google Docs on their own instead. There has been a lot of discussion about the BYOD movement (Bring Your Own Device) where people are getting their own smart phone and/or tablet.

In fact, if you were going to go this route, I'd recommend doing away with documents-as-objects all together, and just creating a link to a Google Doc or Spreadsheet, and letting Google handle version control, etc. No go, unless you use Google Apps, as per my recommendation in Pillar 1 above.
