Jeff Williams, an old colleague of mine at Accenture, and I will be guests on a webinar on June 3, 2010. The webinar will be run by CFO magazine and sponsored by SpringCM. SpringCM is a cloud-based content management solution headquartered here in Chicago.
Jeff and I will get quizzed regarding our views on the content management space. This area remains of great interest to Jeff and I as we both drove a lot of work in back office processes in our careers. We’re still seeing a lot of bad processes in businesses. Some of this is due to rushed mergers, over-reliance on spreadsheets, etc. to solve problems. But, sadly, we’re still seeing a lot of talented individuals in all manner of companies struggling with error correction activities, fighting fraud and other fire-fighting activities when they should be doing something far more strategic for their employers and their careers.
Last week, in preparation for this, Jeff and I did a conference call. We’ll likely discuss:
- how prevalent document and process problems still are in many businesses
- how expensive these problems can be
- what the range of solutions are in the marketplace
- the upside some companies reap with better content solutions
- how the cloud (i.e., software as a service) brings better economics to this space
- and whatever else the folks at CFO want us to discuss
If you’d like to listen, there’s no fee but you’ll need to register on CFO magazine’s site:
I hope a few of you can make it
