The Thanksgiving holiday is all about tradition: turkey, stuffing, gravy, football and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. And, like every year since 1952, the Rockettes are the last act before the parade begins. There they are, right where they should be—a tradition within a tradition.
You recognize the costumes. You know the act. But still, the performance is impressive—captivating—I stop and watch every time. More than anything, it’s the coordination and harmony that is the marvel. Complete fluidity. Each dancer doing precisely the right thing at precisely the right time.
Content management systems that think
That’s a good lesson for any business. Businesses work better when everything is in synch. Communication improves. Decision making is streamlined. Productivity increases.
And, the creative spark that keeps everything in step is information. If businesses can use smart document managing software to capture information, analyze it and distribute it efficiently, then they’ve removed the work from teamwork. They’ve created an environment where collaboration and ideas flourish.
That’s exactly what a well-designed enterprise content management system does: it makes the complex, simple.
In today’s information overloaded world, it means:
- Focusing more time and energy into profit centers.
- Eliminating redundant tasks through business process improvement.
- Accessing information when you need it, in a format that is understandable and relevant.
Information management can’t compare with the pizazz of the Rockettes…very few things can. But, for businesses that understand efficiency and relationships, effective data management solutions are just as captivating, glimmer just as brightly, and are equally impressive.
