Who Ever Said HTML5 Was All That?

Main Image

Reading CMSWire a few weeks back, we were disappointed—nay, surprised—to learn that HTML5 is still not living up to expectations. Bummer.

The CMSWire story, invoked by a new IDC report titled "The Evolving State of HTML5,” breaks the bad news that HTML5 has failed to fulfill its promise as a platform for mobile development, the proof of which is in the abandonment of HMTL5-based mobile apps for Facebook and LinkedIn by their developers.

But the headline on the story is misleading. It implies that the technology has disappointed. A quick read shows not that HTML5 has failed, but that the expectations some had of it were never reasonable in the first place.

AIIM Reflections, Or Why the World Needs Secure HTML5 Viewing

Accusoft reps are back from Orlando and the big AIIM conference held there earlier this month.

Although our reps report an engaging and enlightening few days, some wags in the IT press, including TechCrunch and FierceContentManagement, say this year’s show proved that today’s IT managers are hopelessly mired in horse-and-buggy thinking.

“As I moved around AIIM this week,” wrote TechCrunch’s Ron Miller, “I heard people tip-toeing around the cloud, either deathly afraid of it, or, at most, barely tolerating it… In the face of these challenges, enterprises cannot afford to sit still and hunker down. They have to start shifting to new ways of working.”

From AIIM’s perspective, that may have been the whole point of the conference’s “Information Chaos vs. Information Opportunity” theme. After all, there’s not much value-add in presenting attendees with a message they already understand and embrace.

SharePoint Viewer Success = UX, UX, UX

Main Image

I have a running joke, borrowing from an old real estate axiom, that there are three things key to a successful implementation of SharePoint: user experience, user experience, user experience.

Otherwise referred to as UX, user experience is everything as it relates to general user adoption and specific application implementations around search, workflow, business intelligence and content management.

If you keep that principle in mind, that UX is everything, this will guide everything in SharePoint from out of the box (OOTB) development to the selection of third-party solutions that integrate with and extend the value of SharePoint within the Enterprise.

Accusoft Takes AIIM at the HTML5 Viewer Market Target

Main Image

Accusoft reps are in Orlando the next three days as part of a crack team dedicated to saving us all from “Information Chaos.”

“Information Chaos vs. Information Opportunity” is the theme of AIIM Conference 2014, which starts today. Accusoft representatives are talking with customers, partners and prospects in booth #22 in the exhibit hall.

As Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) President John Mancini told Information Age, “Without question we are living in a time of two conflicting trends. Information is the world’s new currency, yet there has never been a time in which things have been more chaotic…. Many organisations are simply drowning in a sea of content and information.”
