Or, Determining maturity and a path for evolution – without the cost of a Corvette.
Highlights of a discussion between Jerry Dolezal and Derry Walsh, ADV’s newest team member.
Jerry: Hello Derry and welcome to ADV. I know you’re an experienced consultant in the Enterprise Content Management field, but for the benefit of those who haven’t met you, please tell us a bit about yourself.
Derry: Well, I started my Enterprise Content Management career in Tallahassee with PCDOCS, which would later be acquired by Hummingbird and then finally become OpenText. At the time, we had just migrated the last few remaining customers from DOCS Classic – which was the last pre-Windows (aka “DOS”) version of the software. DOCS Open was the new path and DOCS Fusion was the future. So rapid company and product changes were thrust at me, and by necessity I became something of an expert in change management.
Having cut my teeth in support and then as a support manager, I was offered a position with the Global Services team based in Washington D.C., working in the legal and Federal spaces. Since then, I’ve enjoyed a number of consulting roles and have worked with customers in diverse industries and organizations around the world.
Jerry: Derry as you know, ADV always has an eye on the path and a finger on the pulse of the ECM product trends and the technology that supports it. We like to use this blog to share what’s on our minds and what we are thinking about.
So Derry, with that segue, “What are you thinking about?” Read more “Is your ECM system facing a mid-life crisis?”
