Most firms – even ADV – have been through the transition of moving from paper to network file sharing to document management. It’s often a struggle, but we get there, though there are many compromises along the way. We know transforming business practices to match technology often requires some behavioral changes. We are frequently reminded that a cookie cutter approach does not always fit. We have witnessed many of these transitions, and the compromises required for the greater good of technology.
So we take a deeper look into matter-centricity – kind of like metadata revisited (sounds a bit like Brideshead Revisited?…well, no, but it sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?). We have discovered that it really is possible to define standards around the general organizational structure of our documents, while still allowing for deviation (yes, I said deviation) where and when it matters.
Extended Dynamic Views: it’s simple, it’s elegant, it works. But it requires a bit of thought, understanding and planning. Is it right for you? We welcome the conversation. Again, I think you’ll find it intriguing.
For those of you have already deployed a matter-centric view (DVDP or Dynamic Views Dynamic Profile), it’s worth a second look. For those of you who know you have to get there, but hesitate to take the plunge, relax. It’s less painful than you think.
Extending the possibilities. We’re excited about it.
