Email and Knowledge Management: It’s like keeping a fish in a kennel

At its heart, knowledge management is all about the ability to capture the knowledge created in an organization, and making it available to everyone in the company today, and in the future.  Every document, presentation, contact, or even message created in a company represents this knowledge, which might be of use to someone else in the company.

Unfortunately, lots of companies, even those with specialized knowledge management software, simply use email to manage this information. As a result, this information simply gets lost in someone’s inbox, from where it is nearly impossible to recover, and certainly not available to others in the company.

We call this the “Death of information”. We have created the following video to give you an idea of the damage email may be doing to the company’s collective knowledge. Please leave your comments!



Service Providers vs. OTT Vendors: Who will win the battle of cloud data? (Infographic)

Communications Service Providers are reaching the tail end of an era of unprecedented profits driven by mobile voice and messaging revenues. Those days are over.

The strategic dynamics of the market are in the middle of a paradigm shift where communications are increasingly data centric – VOIP, M2M messaging, social messaging, file sharing etc. There is a power struggle between telecom companies, carriers, and service providers on one side and OTT (over the top) vendors (Apple, Microsoft, Google, Skype, WhatsApp) on the other side for control of these new forms of communication.

The question for service providers is straightforward – do they keep watching OTT vendors take over the market, be content with providing access services, and continue seeing a downtrend in APRUs; or do they proactively leverage their strategic strength and claim their stake in the OTT market?

We have created the most comprehensive infographic on the subject compiling all important researches in the market (Chetan Sharma, Gartner, Erricson, IBM, Cisco, Informa, Ovum) which study this question. Please click on the image to see the complete infographic.
