Document management sucks! There – I said it. I challenge you to prove me wrong. I haven’t yet found a document management system (DMS) that’s fit for purpose, and I think I know why. It’s not about the technology. Documentum might hark from the client server era, and Alfresco trumps that with its SOA, but […]

Maaking it work


MaaS looks like the foundation here. In some ways I think these services will become like an inside out version of web hosting – a place to consume rather than a place to publish; though clearly we need both.

I don’t think this is going to be what Sean was asking for, but I also didn’t want to ignore the call to action, and the points that follow will hopefully lead to some useful debate. This post will probably be provocative, so lets start right out with my point of view – semantic web […]

One of the interesting things that’s happened is that people who I direct stuff towards are starting to become significant in my tag cloud. This […]

One of my colleagues spends a lot of time seeing how we can introduce more enterprise 2.0 technologies to the workplace, and when I come across good stuff in that field I tend to throw it over the wall to him. It therefore struck me as insane that when I was reading this from Andrew […]
