Hi, All –

This sounds good to me, and a great affiliation.  

 

  • Will there be any type of gardener role, so that we can begin to tag/connect our past presentations?

 

  • Also, I know something like this was said earlier, but we should have some governance principles, such as, when we quote each other for a revenue-oriented situation (say, as a consultant), we acknowledge the author, send a thanks, or something.

APQC has offered to play a larger role in supporting the SIKM Leaders
Community. This could include con call logistics, providing wider
access to presentations, and providing a blog platform.

Before agreeing to any of this, I wanted to ask the members for their

Re: Have you used/worked with Alfresco? #content-management

Hi Miguel,

Thanks very much for the detailed feedback! Seems that you have done
some trials with it. Did you try to see how it might integrate with
Sharepoint? I only ask because we have sharepoint and users are
getting the hang of it. But I can see other groups wanting to by pass
it and use Alfresco. Thus linking the two at some level would be useful.

Peace,
Gian...

Hi Gian,

I've done several concepts on it (practical trials mostly), no full
roll-outs. It's a very solid document management platform, very
friendly for developers, with nice touches that will or will not be
relevant to you depending on goals. Integrates very well with other
tools, and supports both MS and open standards. The coming version 3.0
showcased in Barcelona adds a further layer of collaboration tools and
tricks, plus better tools for building interfaces, that make it a
great KM tool.

Sticking to current features and comparisons with tools I've worked
with and implemented, IMHO... :

- It's nimbler than FileNet but (on a document management level) at
least as good, without some of the worst gaffes of IBM's acquisition.
Alfresco is much more friendly for customization. Good support (on
both Community and Enterprise versions) beats my experience of
FileNet. No per-user (or other) license costs makes it cost-effective
on both large and cash-strapped organizations. You can get quality
integrators for both. On the process automatization level (BPM) they
are not on the same league: while Alfresco supports administrative
routing and can be proficient for most uses (indeed I've used it to
teach practical BPR), FileNet's processes can be exponentially more
complex, leading to powerful integrations with other tools.

- It's far more serious than Sharepoint. While MS's tool does a
decent job of supporting team collaboration, Sharepoint is very bad at
the document management angle (lack of serious searching, for one,
makes it a bad KM solution), a poor integrated web solution, and not
though for use as a serious development platform. It's like a house
without the foundations. Alfresco has very good foundations and
currently a nice collaboration feature set (conversation support
stands out), but as of today, the MS solution incorporates some tricks
that Alfresco does not have (wiki, blog). Still, Sharepoint's
integrated tricks are substandard: neither the bulletin boards nor the
blog nor the wiki are especially good nor stand well against the
competition. And Sharepoint locks you into a Microsoft environment
while you can use Alfresco in a mixed house of Linux, Mac and Windows
(and Open Office and MS Office and...).

Re the "open source vs corporate support" question, Alfresco has hit
a sweet spot because it has both:
http://emekaeme.wordpress.com/2008/04/25/talking-open-source-with-john-newton-alfresco-ceo/

That's about it for current features. If you're looking for the
collaboration toolset, though, you would do well to browse the new
Community feature set... full integration of wiki and blog stalwarts
such as Mediawiki and Wordpress are just half the fun. I especially
like the way they manage collaboration with people outside the
organization.

Hope it helps a bit. Of course, the relevance of all this depends on
the goals you want to attain with the tool... there's better tools for
many uses.

Best regards,

Miguel

Re: Making SIKM Presentations More Widely Available #APQC

I've sounded off in a couple of places about the cost of getting from place to
place causing a drop in travel and diminishing opportunities for face to face
communications. If that leads to more remote work and more work-at-home
situations, then I suspect businesses will see a case for micro-blogging as a
medium for "presence management." It's the same case that's been made for IM in
the workplace.

This idea is intriguing from a number of perspectives.  I suspect that APQC sees this as a way to gain access to a rich body of content and perhaps some profile by linking to a world-class body of KM expertise.  On the other hand, SIKM might be able to benefit from not worying about day-to-day logistics and it might gain a high-profile platform for any products that it chooses to produce.

 

First some caveats:

  • Control of SIKM activities would have to remain with the group.
  • Membership would have to remain the prerogative of SIKM, regardless of APQC affiliation. 
  • Intellectual property should remain with SIKM.
  • Access should be at the discretion of SIKM (again, regardless of APQC affiliation). 

I see none of these limitations as onerous or deal-breaking.

 

Now the benefits for SIKM:

  • Eliminating the cost and effort of running SIKM
  • Providing a platform for disseminating products that we may wish to product from time to time. 
  • Endorsement of SIKM's work.  Any of us can distribute KM material via the web, as I have.  However that makes it just personal opinion, as an authored document or peresentation.  If, however, the material were incorporated into a SIKM product and distributed by APQC, it weould have notably more prestige.
  • I may be reiterating Bill's views somewhat less eloquently, but who knows - SIKM could end up as a case study for social networking success!

Global Taxonomy Senior Manager


Job Description
Deloitte refers to one or more of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, a Swiss Verein, its member firms, and their respective subsidiaries and affiliates. Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu is an organization of member firms around the world devoted to excellence in providing professional services and advice, focused on client service through a global strategy executed locally in nearly 150 countries. With access to the deep intellectual capital of 120,000 people worldwide, Deloitte delivers services in four professional areas - audit, tax, consulting, and financial advisory services - and serves more than one-half of the world's largest companies, as well as large national enterprises, public institutions, locally important clients, and successful, fast-growing global growth companies. Services are not provided by the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Verein, and, for regulatory and other reasons, certain member firms do not provide services in all four professional areas.

As a Swiss Verein (association), neither Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu nor any of its member firms has any liability for each other's acts or omissions. Each of the member firms is a separate and independent legal entity operating under the names 'Deloitte,' 'Deloitte & Touche,' 'Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu,' or other related names.

 

Join Deloitte's Global Knowledge Management Operations Group and maintain the global taxonomy and continue to drive its adoption and implementation by Functions and Member Firms. In the position, you will also provide internal consulting and guidance to member firms and functions in the construction and application of local extensions to the global taxonomy.

 

Specific Responsibilities:

      Provide internal consulting and support to member firms and functions building local extensions to the global taxonomy. Includes strategy development as well as actual construction and implementation.

      Provide guidance and support regarding taxonomy development and implementation to Deloitte Platform and global applications.

      Integrate global taxonomy with the firm's various content management systems and search utilities.

      Provide education on the benefits and use of controlled vocabularies (i.e. standardized language). Includes the articulation of the business case for dedicating a percentage of resources to developing, implementing and maintaining taxonomies.

      Provide oversight of local extensions and resolve conflicts between extensions.

      Work collaboratively with Taxonomy Product Manager to manage existing categories within global taxonomy, including quarterly reviews and updates.

      Work collaboratively with Taxonomy Product Manager to develop and implement new categories within the global taxonomy as dictated by business needs.

      Maintain Global Taxonomy web site on Deloitte Resources.

      Facilitate quarterly Global Taxonomy Review Committee calls and manage membership of the Review Committee.

Stan, if you put all these presentations together you will have a nice book of readings.  Perhaps that is something to consider.  Over time, quite a bit of intellectual capital has passed through this community.  A volunteer committee might pick the "best" offerings and seek to get release permission from the authors.  Perhaps an APQC-sponsored publication?  The nice idea to me is the concept of a publication emanating from a an on-line virtual community.
 
Thanks again for being the catalyst for this wonderful group.
 
Best wishes,
 
Mike
