I recently wrote an advisory paper on interoperability and (open) standards in DAM and MAM. I was inspired by the complexities of the world of enterprise DAM /MAM technology where the ability to interoperate among systems becomes critical for many organizations.
For most of the past decade, global enterprises have been rationalizing and professionalizing their web publishing operations, setting global standards, upgrading local talent across various regions, investing in better technology. All good.
But I'm perceiving a new twist on this trend, and I'd be interested to hear your take
I had made the case that mobile-enabled user interfaces for content management systems -- ones that allow you to pull up a content management system on a mobile device to maintain your web site, documents, or other digital assets -- was a very real and current way of managing content.

Today IBM announced the acquisition of Datacap. It was no surprise really as Big Blue has been talking for a while about enhancing their overall imaging offering, to better leverage advanced case management
Both IBM and now EMC have recently touted their improved Case Management capabilities, so I thought it timely to take a look at this area in a little more detail
