Under the headline ‘Defining a new age’, the latest AIIM Executive Leadership Council explored the main challenges of new technologies for intelligent information management. In this blog post, we zoom in on two major disruptive forces and their impacts on EIM: artificial intelligence and blockchain.
By now, the importance of smart content, proper information management, its main challenges and opportunities to optimize EIM are already well-known. New technologies, however, can have disruptive impacts on the ECM and EIM markets by replacing existing technologies and/or creating new and valuable capabilities.
The main driver is the old adage 'information is the new gold'
With cognitive computing, we will be able to ‘activate’ content to reveal new insights
Most information will remain under direct control of the companies themselves
Services that facilitate interaction with blockchain platforms will be the key to success
These are only two examples of disruptive technologies; we’ll be discussing plenty more in upcoming blog posts. Embracing these technologies begins with being inspired by their possibilities in diverse industries and use cases. One thing is for sure: the first organization to transform into a smart and intelligent enterprise will have a major leg up over its competitors.
