Join us for our webinar with ASUG, Microsoft, and CHS Inc. next Wednesday!

Over the past two weeks, we have examined the path to implementation required for a strong SAP enterprise content management (ECM) strategy. In particular, we have traced the path to implementation for two different types of platform: a traditional ECM system and a strategy built on Office 365.

We've established that an enterprise content management strategy for SAP ECC and S\4HANA built on Office 365 and SharePoint provides a full feature set at a fraction of the cost of legacy systems (6-14% depending on the approach).

Next Wednesday, we are hosting a webinar with ASUG including speakers from Microsoft and one of our joint customers: CHS, Inc.:

[Founded in] in 1929, CHS is a farmer-owned cooperative working to help America’s farmers be more successful. Today, because of our belief in shared success and farmer-first values, we’ve grown into a Fortune 100 company that over the past five years has returned nearly $2 billion in cash to our farmer and member cooperative owners. Together, we’re making a difference around the world with our depth of energy, grain and food solutions—not to mention our full range of business services and our commitment to stewardship.

With the help of Microsoft Principal Program Manager Ian Story, we'll explore how CHS plans to accelerate their business, improve collaboration, and reduce cost around SAP content management in Office 365.

Attend to discover how to solve common problems around adoption, information access, and  collaboration between SAP power user and business users.  Leverage the Microsoft cloud to connect business processes, content, and people to greatly reduce the cost of managing unstructured content and  improve time to value across your digital workplace and process optimization projects.

CHS Inc. will also present their decision process, initial use and future plans for Office 365 as their SAP ECM strategy. Click the image below to register to attend!

3 Tips to Ensure KORA Compliance

There has been a spotlight on the Kansas Open Records Act (KORA) in the media lately, largely due to recent violations. Under KORA, any individual can request public records from government bodies. If all requested records are not provided within in a specific timeframe, these organizations are subject to significant repercussions. This is merely one example of a ‘sunshine law’. The purpose of sunshine laws is to provide transparency into government agencies by giving the public access to local government proceedings.

Creating a Retention Schedule that Works

Creating a usable, automated, and simple file plan is an important part of ensuring records are managed in a consistent manner and that you are protected from legal risks, such as failure to disclose information during a discovery proceeding or the unauthorized leakage of information. The first step in the process is creating a retention schedule, which outlines how long records are kept in accordance with the organization’s obligations and the law.

How to Manage Your Sprawling Content

Sprawling content, the spread of content across multiple repositories, has been a thorn in the side of records managers since the dawn of document management. Consolidation of repositories, which began in the early 2000s, at first looked to be the solution. However, it ended up highlighting the problems of content sprawl due to the high costs of consolidation as well as need for records managers to manage multiple file plans. Federated records management offers a solution to these problems but doesn’t offer the same locked-down approach with regards to regulation that consolidation can. Consolidation of repositories and federated records management both have pros and cons and, depending on your organization’s content management processes and repositories, one can be more beneficial than the other in the long term.
