Three Ways Cloud Changes Product Management

Has the cloud really changed product management? Indeed, the widespread deployment of software in the cloud is prompting many software product management practitioners to extend and update the role of product management to address the unique requirements and opportunities of cloud-deployed software. Here are three ways that managing cloud products differs from managing on-premises products. The scope of the product manager is expanding. When a company offers its software in the cloud, product managers must lead the product-related activities well beyond the code exiting QA, which traditionally marked the completion of an on-premises software release. In the world of cloud-deployed products, the product manager must continue to lead the product team until the release is deployed in the production environment and is available for customer use. This expanded role means product managers must gain new areas of expertise, coordinate with additional functional groups, such as IT Operations and DevOps, and define new aspects of the customer solution, including SLAs, security services, and high-availability and disaster-recovery options. Ease of deployment is (finally) a top priority. Although most product managers historically intended to minimize the total cost of ownership for traditional software products, more often than not, these requirements never quite got to the top of the product backlog. Now that the companies developing the software also typically provide it via the cloud, minimizing the cost, effort, and time to deploy and operate the software is critical to providing price-competitive cloud solutions. Ease of deployment, therefore, has finally made it to the must-have list. Existing users have more leverage.   Cloud service providers have greater insight into how their customers use their products, and the cloud deployment model fosters a closer ongoing relationship with users. In turn, customers have raised their expectations that vendors must deliver a continual stream of increasing value. As a result, understanding and satisfying the needs of the current installed base will consume more product management attention and development resources than before. Product managers’ roles and responsibilities, as well as their importance and impact, have expanded in this era of cloud-deployed applications. To seize the opportunities created by cloud, product managers will need to expand their leadership to extend to the deployment of the software into the production environment, define new dimensions of the customer experience in the cloud, reduce deployment costs, and increase their focus on the installed base to maximize customer retention.

Moving at the Speed of Cloud: Innovation, Insight, and Integration in the OpenText Cloud

As customers look to their digital transformation they are increasingly looking to the cloud to provide them with agile business options and improved productivity while maintaining control of their critical information assets. At OpenText, we provide cloud and hybrid cloud options with seamless movement between on-premises and cloud. Here is a look at some of the recent and emerging cloud innovations: Innovation Our growth in SaaS apps is significant, from advances in existing SaaS applications such as OpenText Core with many new features including Outlook® integration, AD Synch, and Content Suite integration. Archive Center with Exchange online support, file system, and email handling as well as CMIS and custom file support. And there are new SaaS offerings such as PowerDocs, which drives customized document creation, to iHub bringing easily purchased and deployed analytics for any data source. There are new, simple to buy, and easy to deploy standard Managed Cloud Services Packages (MCS). MCS offerings provide complete flexibility to have custom configurations and choices within cloud and hybrid cloud implementations. Now there are also simple standard offerings in Content Suite Cloud Edition, Media Management Cloud Edition, and Big Data Analytics in the cloud. These standard packages have a range of options for service level, functionality, and capacity growth. They are available today with currently shipping products and will also be a part of the Cloud 16 release. Industry solutions and features sets have been added in the cloud. Healthcare Direct for RightFax, which will soon be available with Fax2Mail, provides the ability to translate fax transmissions into direct messages so customers can comply with recent US healthcare legislation and not have to change their business processes. ROSMA addresses Procurement Performance Management, and Core has added features requested by legal and professional services organizations. Insight As we amass greater and greater volumes of information, both structured and unstructured, gaining a true understanding of what the information shows becomes increasing challenging. That is where analytics comes in. Big Data Analytics in the cloud and iHub provide analytics services and allow customers to create their own analytics reporting without the need to have a data scientist on staff. Analytics has been embedded and/or integrated with all of the EIM Suites to provide that insight for customers. The Trading Grid will provide business analytics and logistics Track and Trace for supply chain shipment visibility. Analysis on content and processes is provided through integration with Content Suite and Process Suite. Analytics as a Service in the Cloud allows customers to “bring their own data” and very quickly begin to analyze it and gain insights that can drive their business. Integration We believe it is a hybrid world, and customers need to have the flexibility to integrate their cloud systems with on-premises systems. We provide complete flexibility to integrate with any system on-premises, in the OpenText Cloud, and with other clouds. Many of our Managed Cloud Services customers choose hybrid implementations. Recent innovations in this area include Archive Center CE with SAP® integration and integrations with SAP Hana and S/4Hana.  There is also a new integration that brings the power of ECM together with Salesforce®. In the OpenText Cloud, customers can have integrations across EIM suites and with their other systems on-premises or in other clouds or operated and fully managed in our cloud. We see an increasing number of customers taking advantage of this option. Cloud 16 While some of this innovation is available today, most of it comes together in the Cloud 16 release that consolidates suites and applications in five major areas. This release will be followed by quarterly releases that bring innovations to customers on a more frequent basis. OpenText Content Cloud 16 provides information governance options that are quickly and easily deployed and fully managed in cloud and hybrid cloud scenarios. The Experience Cloud 16 empowers businesses to increase user engagement and improve customer satisfaction while avoiding time spent on managing applications or infrastructure. OpenText Process Cloud 16 enables businesses to rapidly automate their business processes and have the platform managed by EIM specialists in the OpenText Cloud. OpenText Analytics Cloud 16 provides embedded analytics for EIM applications and for custom content sources fully managed by EIM experts in the OpenText Cloud. OpenText Business Network 16 provides a B2B integration platform for managing transactions such as EDI and On Demand messaging with platform services and Managed Services options. Customers can try beta versions of Cloud 16 now, and it will be released in March 2016 and then enjoy ongoing quarterly releases of new innovations. We are moving at the speed of cloud to bring innovative solutions to business challenges.

The Backstage Pass to OpenText Suite 16 & OpenText Cloud 16

We just shared some huge news with our attendees here at Enterprise World in Las Vegas: we’ve presented an exclusive future roadmap unveiling OpenText Suite 16 and OpenText Cloud 16—the next generation of our EIM offerings that will become available March 2016. We shared a lot of details about Suite 16 and Cloud 16 in our press release (you can read it here), but we couldn’t fit in all the thinking that went into this release. Strategic principles of OpenText Suite 16 & Cloud 16 From what we’ve experienced and from what our customers tell us they want and need, we came up with a dream list of innovations for an enterprise to make the most of digital disruption. We focused on that list of strategic principles across our entire Suite 16 and Cloud 16 offerings. Below is what was going through our heads: 1. Deepen functionality across all suites. This is a major release, full of new features and innovations. Keeping in mind our customers’ suggestions, we significantly deepened functionality throughout the offerings. Practically every product line is raising the bar in terms of customer value proposition and competitive differentiation. Check out the press release for some of the highlights, and watch for more details as we launch the new suites and cloud offerings in March. 2. Help customers transition to the cloud. Right off the top, we wanted to be sure to offer all of our suites in the cloud, available as a subscription or as managed cloud services. That was a must-do, but then we took it further and added integration with other cloud products such as Salesforce® and Office 365®. We also added new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, such as OpenText Core, PowerDocs, and Archive Center, to enable as much flexibility and savings as possible—customers want what they need, and no one wants to pay for more than they need. 3. Focus on user experience and remove barriers to user adoption. Enterprise productivity begins by removing the barriers to adoption—the easier it is to use, the more they use it—so we invested heavily in improving the user experience across all the suites (in the browser as well as on mobile devices). We put a big focus on HTML5-based responsive experience, and customers who got to preview the new UI of products such as Content Suite or Media Management this week are raving about it. The improved user experience is one of the most noticeable innovations in Suite 16 and Cloud 16. In fact, this alone makes upgrading worthwhile. 4. Integrate with more enterprise applications and across the suites (with an extra focus on analytics). We’ve added integration with more enterprise apps, like Salesforce and SuccessFactors®, in addition to SAP®, Oracle®, and Microsoft®. And there is major integration between the suites. For example, OpenText Process Suite fully integrates with OpenText Content Suite, Archive Center, Media Management, Capture Center, CCM—speaking of CCM, that integrates with OpenText WEM, DAM, CS, Notifications…it goes on and on across all the suites, enabling us to solve customer problems no other vendor can solve. We also put an extra focus on analytics, which is itself a new suite, and it’s embedded into all the other suites, which brings out even more value from existing deployments. 5. Deliver information flows as a way to solve complex problems. All the products in the world are not going to solve real business problem if they’re not integrated in a way that follows the logical flow of information through the business processes and applications. That’s why we focus on the core information flow from information-centric flows, such as capture-to-disposition, create-to-consume, and incident-to resolution, all the way to business flows such as procure-to-pay. For more efficient information flows, we’ve added automation to the Procure-to-Pay business process and delivery of P2P and a new entity-modeling layer in the Process Suite platform, and we’ve extended process-centric collaboration and information sharing. 6. Provide more value from existing deployments. When you can get more value out of existing deployments, you reduce the total cost of ownership. New capabilities, pervasive use of analytics, new UI, focus on cost of ownership, cloud delivery, and subscription-based pricing bring more flexibility and value to the enterprise. Each of these strategic principles makes upgrading to Suite 16 and Cloud 16 worthwhile. This is a milestone release that existing customers will love and want to upgrade to. Read more about OpenText Suite 16 and OpenText Cloud 16 here, and let me know what you think about it.

A Great First Impression as Travellers Arrive at Las Vegas

I was delighted to see the OpenText Core banners in the arrivals area as I came through Las Vegas airport today. It certainly elevates the OpenText brand and spreads the good word about Core. The OpenText banners manage to make a memorable impression at an airport where the sheer number of other brands competing for mind-space is mind boggling. We’re competing with rows of screens depicting beautiful airbrushed models enjoying luxury brands with the colour contrast turned up to max. The OpenText banner campaign uses blanket coverage at every baggage reclaim carousel at Las Vegas airport, and I think that’s more effective than having a dispersed advertising campaign across the airport. It’s like a concentrated triple hit of espresso versus a long skinny late diluted with milky froth and it makes a great first Impression as travellers arrive at Las Vegas. OpenText also has only one chance to make a good first impression when it comes to Core itself. In a world where gratification is immediate, you have mere seconds to captivate someone and demonstrate how a product or service can be of use to them. Core is instantly usable and that will become immediately apparent at Enterprise World, because it’s the platform being used to share all the presentations with the attendees. Core allows Enterprise World attendees who see presentations which captures their imagination (and there will be many) to share them with colleagues and friends who weren’t able to be there in person. They will be able to then share, comment and collaborate on presentations using Core. And did I mention that Core looks good too? But that’s a story for another day.

Looking Forward to Seeing the Whole Picture at my first Enterprise World

As a relatively new employee at OpenText, I’ve been continually impressed with the company’s ongoing dedication to innovation that exceeds the needs of our marketplace. As you might guess, it’s a process that’s highly involved and hugely multi-faceted; there are so many influencers and moving pieces affecting both our product development roadmaps and the environment in which our customers operate.

I’m looking forward to seeing how all of our different products fit together and integrate to provide solutions that make our customers lives easier and more productive each day. As part of the OpenText product marketing team, I’m excited to see my cohorts roll out the new product developments they’ve been working on and engage customers and partners alike hear to what they have to say. The best feedback any company can garner is “feet on the street.” In our case, that’s our customers and partners. I’m looking forward to hearing about all the different ways they use our technologies in all the different verticals and environments. Last but not least, I’m ecstatic about getting on stage with engineering team lead Greg Beckman to talk about the exciting developments around OpenText Core . There have been dozens of new features added and enhancements made since the team launched it a year ago. Come and check out our OpenText Core breakout sessions both Wednesday and Thursday at Enterprise World to see Core put through its paces live. Then step up and say hi afterwards. Let’s compare notes and see who’s learning the most at this year’s event!

All Digital All the Time—Why No Enterprise is Safe from Disruption and Some will Not Survive

We hear a lot about Digital Disruption, the new mantra of the coming apocalypse. Yet disruption doesn’t have to be cataclysmic. In fact, many organizations are embracing it as a new way of working and the increasing number of Chief Digital Officers are making it their business to lead their enterprises safely along uncharted paths. Almost 200 sessions at Enterprise World 2015 will help attendees to navigate digital disruption in their sectors. We specialize in enabling the digital world. Here’s a preview from our team of Industry Strategists. Manufacturing Today’s manufacturing industry continues to globalise operations, reduce costs and embrace complex regional compliance regulations. Combined with embracing disruptive digital technologies such as 3D printing, wearable devices and the Internet of Things, today’s manufacturing CIOs have to overcome an immense digital challenge. CIOs may feel as though they are gambling away their IT budgets on digital projects that provide minimal returns. At Enterprise World 2015, we will be showcasing new cloud, analytics and information management related solutions. The ability for a manufacturer to choose how they manage an enterprise information management environment, for example, in either a cloud or hybrid approach, provides the opportunity for them to scale their IT infrastructure according to the requirements of their business. Increased use of Big Data analytics can provide a deeper understanding or what is going on across a manufacturing operation or supply chain and we will be show casing our latest cloud based analytics solution at EW15. Our Digital Disruption Zone will also showcase how new technologies such as 3D printers and wearable devices can work with OpenText EIM solutions. Financial Services Financial Services is still an industry in flux, routinely testing new business models. A recent Industry Insight blog wrote about a newly licensed bank in the UK, called Atom Bank. They have some capital, and their other asset is an application. That is all. This is amazing when you think about it. It could have happened without smartphones, but they really changed this game. The smartphones of today outperform the fastest and biggest computer of 1985. Essentially they are a small and handy way to deliver chips to you, and you can make a phone call too! And they are easy to carry and fit in your pocket. Of course, it is all in the chips which provide the digital technology. Now Volvo has stated that in the near future if you buy one of their cars, they will provide the insurance. Commercial Banking North American Corporate Banking and Corporate Treasury organizations are facing digital disruption in many flavors, from different directions and in different timeframes. In the short term, a myriad of disruptive regulations, technologies and new players are bombarding banks and their corporate treasury clients, requiring massive, parallel changes to their payment systems. Figuring out a strategy for future proofing a payments environment is critical and partnerships with a provider that’s “been there, done that” in Europe and elsewhere is an important step. Longer term, digital disruption represents both an opportunity and a threat to the corporate banking business. Will the combination of open APIs for financial transactions, distributed ledgers (a la blockchain) and the Internet of Things make banks irrelevant to their corporate clients’ day to day business? Or will the traditional role as a trusted intermediary allow banks to take an even more prominent role in B2B digital commerce as the provider of the equivalent of safe deposit boxes for high assurance digital identity management? Or both? If you have thoughts on these topics, please join us at our Enterprise World Industry User Forums, Friday, November 13, where you will have an opportunity to share with your peers how you are tackling digital disruption in your organization. Public Sector When we talk about digital disruption, our examples typically come from business—Uber, for instance, where technology inspired the execution from the beginning. There were no internal processes to disable, SOP’s to revise, legacy applications to transition or decommission and, most significant, no employees to retrain. These challenges have long impeded government’s ability to modernize. To digitize, public organizations have to apply technology to internal mission-delivery processes—not incrementally automate process steps as they are performed now, in silos, but envision the way they can share information across their functional silos to take giant leaps to cut service delivery times, increase inspection or regulatory effectiveness, improve facility or asset maintenance, investigative efficiency and so on. To read more about how to move to Digital Government, take a look here. Life Sciences The Life Science industries are not immune to digital transformation. In fact, we’re focusing on the emergence of the Information Enterprise: what it is, how to manage it, and why it offers unprecedented opportunities for everyone involved, especially in a world of increasing regulatory scrutiny. As in previous years, there will be content useful for the traditional Life Sciences and Healthcare industries, with added focus for other FDA-regulated enterprises in Food Safety, Cosmetics, and Tobacco. Learn specific information management solutions and strategies for our industry by participating in Breakout Sessions; Customer Roundtables; Industry specific short talks in the Disruption Zone theater; and, Meet Your Industry Peers breakfasts. New this year, we are introducing a Life Sciences user group program for Friday morning, entitled “EIM Best Practices for FDA-Regulated Industries” to discuss best practices and allow for us to learn from each other’s perspectives. So most organizations, regardless of industry are facing the same challenges and are looking for ways to optimize their work and their outcomes. That’s just why we host our annual Enterprise World, to help you create a better way to work. See you there!

How many Clouds are enough to Archive Effectively? At Enterprise World, you’ll see the Answer is…One

Imagine if your IT department announced that it had launched an automatic new cloud archiving system to house all your business emails in the cloud and let you to access them from your email program of choice. No more “mailbox is full” messages. No need to delete large attachments to stay within memory limits. Less drama when you lose your laptop or your laptop needs upgrading. All your emails will be instantly available on your new hardware. Then picture the following month your IT admin announces that they’ve created a second cloud archive system. This time for the files and documents you use to conduct day-to-day business. You’ll have access to all your files and documents across multiple devices–complete with version control so that you can recover an old version, if needed. Pretty sweet! But hold on…the next month, those industrious IT folks delight you further with a third archive repository. This one dedicated to your SAP related data and documents. It introduces new and useful features such as displaying thumbnail views of documents right in your SAP application, and all relevant documents are dynamically presented exactly where and when you need them in your business process. In the fourth month (why is this starting sound like a Christmas carol?), your prolific IT admin team announce an archive cloud which operates behind the scenes to tighten security and governance for your BPM data and documents. Each cloud archive system on its own is fantastic in its own right, but when you put them together, you’ve got four separate systems in the cloud; four logins, four places to search to find what you want, four siloes of information not integrated with each other. You can search them from their native apps, but wouldn’t it be great to have a central place to archive? That’s the thinking behind OpenText Archive Center, Cloud Edition. It’s an enterprise archiving service running in the OpenText Cloud as a public cloud service. Best of all, it draws on our extensive experience in archiving methodologies and technologies to be fully enterprise-class and scalable to meet your needs. You can start archiving SAP content today; expand to email and files tomorrow; and, when you’re ready, expand your enterprise archiving further by connecting to other file types in other systems using open standards. All your enterprise content–in one archive system in the cloud. I’m hoping you’ll be able to join me at Enterprise World 2015 as I present a breakout session ECM-405 Product Update: OpenText Archive Center Has Launched! – specifically about the archiving challenges that businesses face, and how the introduction of Archive Center Cloud Edition helps alleviate these issues.

Call Security! Addressing Internal and External Breaches at Legal Firms

Data breaches don’t just affect banks and retailers, legal organizations are being hacked too. While legal organizations aren’t required to disclose cybercrimes, it is estimated that 80 of the 100 biggest law firms have experienced some sort of data breach since 2011. And legal firms remain an attractive target. Citigroup’s Cyber Intelligence Unit warns that legal organizations are at high risk for data breaches because they deal with highly valuable matters such as mergers and acquisitions and patent applications. In addition, digital security at many law firms, despite improvements, generally remains below the standards for other industries. The role of the legal security professional is expanding in scope and complexity, out of sheer necessity. Security threats emanate from many directions—both internal and external. And while security issues range from malware to various forms of external hacking, it’s interesting to note that ‘staff’ are considered the most likely source of a security breach. Staff leaving the firm, for example, may attempt to print or download client information, matter files, or other valuable records. Faced with this scenario, over one third of organizations have no way to detect or prevent an internal leak before it occurs or to pinpoint those responsible. And for 60% of these organizations, a security leak of this nature would have high impact; for 13% it would be disastrous. The consequences of a data breach can be severe—from reputational damage and lost business, to hefty fines that can reach into the millions. Given today’s technology landscape, legal firms must take action to protect themselves. This means not only monitoring for internal breaches, but also addressing external security vulnerabilities introduced by the growing use of consumer technologies. Cloud, mobile, and social technologies increase the complexity of data security and expand the volumes and varieties of content that need to be managed and secured. Unfortunately, while legal organizations want to protect all their information from every possible risk, this does not mesh well with the nature of today’s business operations. Information flows in and out of firms at a rapid pace, often engaging multiple processes and applications along the way. Communications are highly interactive and stem from a variety of sources. Here in lies the dilemma. The challenge in today’s business environment is to balance the benefits of freely flowing information with the potential risk of theft—to provide a security framework that offers high levels of protection without stifling the needs of individuals or the agility of processes. Solutions like OpenText eDOCS help legal and other highly regulated organizations strike this balance. Security measures are at the foundation of each product module, so users can rest assured their mission-critical information is managed and secure, yet easily accessible. eDOCS also offers specific security modules for more targeted activities. Guardian for eDOCS monitors the document repository usage, reports on excessive end user activities, and prevents information security leaks from inside the organization. Wireless DMS for eDOCS enables legal professionals to access their document repository confidently, while on the go, in ways that are both flexible and highly secure. To learn more about eDOCS security, visit our website or contact us.

See Big Data Analytics in Action

Not since the mashup of chocolate and peanut butter have people been so excited about two great products that fit great together: Analytics and the Cloud. Earlier this month, OpenText announced Big Data Analytics in The Cloud,  an all-in-one software appliance built for business analysts that need to access, blend, explore, and analyze data fast without depending on IT or data experts. The need for Big Data Analytics should be obvious. Businesses need to understand their data requirements. They need to digest hundreds of tables and billions of rows of data from disparate data sources. With a powerful analytics tool on their side, companies speed up their time to value with the ability to integrate data from multiple sources to get a single view of their business. No complex data modeling or coding is required. They can clean, enrich and analyze billions of records in seconds and apply advanced and predictive techniques in a visual, intuitive way. But seeing is believing. This is why we have assembled a demonstration video that shows just how Big Data Analytics works and some scenarios that may mirror your own needs. Check out the demonstration here: And if you are interested testing out Big Data Analytics yourself, we have also a free trial available.

Top 3 Trends for Strong User Adoption

One of the greatest pleasures in my job is when I get to meet with customers and hear how they are implementing our solutions to drive business value in their organization. As we have recently completed our worldwide Innovation Tour, I was privileged to meet with several of our customers in different regions of the world and to be inspired by their stories. One of the common topics I heard our customers speaking to each other about is User Adoption and the change management that comes with implementing a new or upgraded system. Three common themes emerged as drivers to success for user adoption in their implementations. Pride of Ownership Successfully adopted systems have clear owners who take pride in the system and their role in it. When you hear the champion for a new system talk to peers about their implementation you can see the enthusiasm in their face. The smiles come out and you can see that they have taken personal pride in the success of the system within the organization. Whether the system is operated on their premises or in the cloud is not a factor in their level of ownership. The champion (and their leadership) have a personal stake in the project and show that clear dedication to the success of the system, to achieving their business goals, and to ensuring the users have a good experience. Broad Involvement Most successful information management projects include the business stakeholders in the process from the very early stages. They are involved in creating the business requirements and in most cases are key members in the system selection team. Stakeholders from a variety of roles are included, from those that are tied directly to the business success factors, to end users. The business groups partner effectively with IT throughout the evaluation and selection stages of the software and implementation partner(s). Once the system is selected, many organizations choose a broad team to take the system through the next steps, deciding on implementation choices, user experience, acceptance criteria and so on. Many of the customers that describe adoption success have used this phase to involve a broader set of user types and departments or regions, effectively expanding their base of information and their local evangelists. One of the other tactics involves “humanizing” the system. Many have named their system, often with a name chosen through a company contest involving employees of all types. The amount of involvement they have gained up front seems to correlate to system acceptance down the road. Names the organizations choose for their system vary widely but quite often with the information systems, the chosen name reflects bringing people and information together. With the new name, decided by contest, the system now becomes a ‘someone’ that people have a vested interest in helping to succeed.

8 Top Considerations for a Successful Cloud Partnership

As your organization embarks on creating a cloud strategy, there are many things to consider. What are the top benefits you are looking to achieve by moving workloads into the cloud? What areas of your business are you willing to consider as cloud or hybrid cloud implementations? Most of all, as you move into the cloud you are faced with extending your infrastructure and IT team to include your cloud provider. What are the key things you should consider as you determine the key cloud partnerships you will embrace? One Size Does Not Fit All Developing a cloud strategy is an exercise in understanding your business process, workloads, security rules, compliance requirements, and user adoption–just to name a few. Not a simple task, moving business to the cloud might mean a combination of both deployment and costing strategies. Options for on-premises, public cloud, private cloud (both on and off site), Hybrid cloud, SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS all offer organizations flexibility but can also be confusing. What offering is ideal for which business process to generate the highest efficiency and cost benefit? There is no one-size-fits-all solution, which means IT leaders need to be prudent about cloud options and work with their vendors to ensure they get the most value for their investment. Information Matters As we live in the digital age, many organizations recognize the value of information and place significant priority on protecting it. Information Governance, knowing what information you have, where it is and what you need to do with it, has never been more important. When organizations look at moving information to the cloud they need to be extra vigilant to ensure that their information policies and compliance regulations are both understood and upheld by their cloud partner. The value and level of control required over information should play a part in an organization’s decision of what applications and what data will reside in the cloud, on premises or as part of a hybrid cloud implementation.

Accessible PDF Discussion: A Solution for High-Volume Customer Communications

To help them achieve complete web accessibility, organizations require a viable technology solution for automatically generating high-volume (i.e., enterprise-level) personalized customer communications in Accessible PDF format. Such a solution would give blind and visually impaired people immediate and equal access to electronic documents, which they currently do not have. This series of blog posts explains why demand is increasing for customer communication documents in Accessible PDF format, describes current industry practices for producing these documents, and introduces a new technology option that enables organizations to keep PDF format as their default electronic format for high-volume, web-delivered documents of record while enabling full accessibility and usability of those PDFs for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. In recent blog posts we examined the Drivers behind Web Content Accessibility, Best Practices for PDF and Accessible PDF and Approaches to Generating Accessible PDFs. In this post, we will examine a new, patented, state-of-the-art technology solution that is specifically designed to generate high volumes of Accessible PDF. You can also access the complete white paper on this topic, Enterprise-Level PDF Accessiblity: Drivers, Challenges and Innovative Solutions. New Technology for Generating Enterprise-Level Accessible PDFs A first-to-market, enterprise-level technology for automatically producing personalized customer communications in Accessible PDF format is now market available. The new technology converts print streams, documents, and data into Accessible PDFs, either in high-volume batches (i.e., thousands, millions) or individually on demand (dynamically in real time). Organizations can use this type of innovative technology to simultaneously improve customer experience for people with visual disabilities and comply with relevant accessibility legislation such as the ADA, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, Section 255 of the Telecommunications Act, and the CVAA. Accessibility Rules Unlike manual remediation, this automated technology leverages a sophisticated, inherently flexible rules model, ensuring that each source document, whether in PDF or print stream format, completely incorporates the specified accessibility rules. Accessibility templates can be easily edited to ensure production continuity of recurring (e.g., monthly) high-volume transactional documents. Organizations may need to secure accessibility expertise (at least initially) to define PDF accessibility rules for each document type, although the various document authors and creators require no specialized accessibility knowledge because the automated technology includes a highly intelligent graphical user interface. Quality Control Visual PDF tag inspection and usability testing is not required on every page, as it is with manual remediation. Instead, quality control can be maintained with automated and manual accessibility/usability testing on small batches of documents. This patented technology utilizes PDF/UA format (ISO 14289-1) and incorporates the Matterhorn Protocol2 to generate Accessible PDF output that has been independently tested and found to conform to WCAG 2.0, Level AA, by nationally and internationally recognized prominent advocacy organizations and well respected worldwide accessibility firms. Deployment This innovative technology can be deployed as a traditional on-premise traditional or virtual software installation, or as a cloud-based solution. Observed Effect on Traditional Format Production Recent cloud deployments of this new technology are having an unexpected, positive effect on the production of traditional alternate formats such as Braille, large print, and audio. These traditional formats, like manual PDF remediation, can be time and cost intensive to produce, and can delay the delivery of customer communications. The rich, structured output from this automated technology has allowed for automation of the production of traditional formats, including Braille, large print, and audio, lessening the labor resources needed for manual processing. Each personalized communication statement or notice can be produced more efficiently, reducing cost and delivery time for alternate hardcopy formats. ePresentment Options With the advent of affordable, scalable technology for automatically producing high-volume Accessible PDF documents, private organizations and government agencies suddenly have a number of new options for presenting online customer communications. For example, organizations can provide Accessible PDF communications by default, creating an inclusionary environment while meeting legislative mandates. This delivery scenario enables blind and visually impaired people to access their personal information at the same time as other customers, without the delays associated with requesting alternate hardcopy formats. Or, instead of producing Accessible PDFs by default, organizations with existing systems for online presentment of PDF documents may choose to provide customers with on-demand conversion to Accessible PDF format, both for current PDFs and archived documents. For online users, this would mean replacing an inconvenient exception process with merely a few button clicks. Implications for Organizations and Individuals This innovative technology solution for enterprise-level PDF accessibility offers blind and visually impaired people equal (and instant) access to electronic documents, empowering them to be more independent, make more timely financial and other critical decisions, and participate more fully in the 24/7 digital world. Imagine, individuals who prefer digital technology can finally say “No, thanks” to exception processes, accommodations, late-arriving hardcopies in alternate formats, and other such hassles. For blind and visually impaired people who do not currently request documents in alternate formats, and instead rely on family, friends, and support workers to help them manage their affairs, this technology gives them another avenue for becoming more independent. With the arrival of this groundbreaking automated technology and its ready availability to organizations producing customer communication PDFs, 20+ million blind and visually impaired Americans have an opportunity to use their buying power to affect meaningful change. They can achieve this by patronizing service providers that offer instant online access to Accessible PDF versions of bank and credit card statements, phone bills, insurance documents, and other routine (yet vital) communications. Likewise, they can demand a comparable level of service from government agencies, non-profits, and institutions of higher education. This type of technology is a game changer for industry, for government, and most importantly for blind and visually impaired people who deserve equal access to the entire internet, including websites, web content, and web-delivered documents.

Good Cloud. Bad Cloud. Why Cloud?

Confused about the cloud? You’re not alone. Adoption is projected to grow at double digits despite plentiful guidance on why we should fear the cloud. Pundits tell us, “If your organization is not implementing the cloud, you’re already behind.” Yet it is easy to feel the cloud is just beyond our grasp. So let’s take a look at some real-life use cases from sectors that are leading the way in enterprise adoption of the cloud. Cloud Illusions Ask a few CIOs about the cloud and you are likely to hear a wide range of responses, from concern that the cloud endangers security and privacy to elation that the cloud can be the ultimate platform for change. While much of this reflects well-reasoned advice and counsel, some is pure hype. When even The Onion takes on “that cloud thing that everyone is talking about,” we should realize that we are at hype and jargon saturation. With all the noise around cloud computing, cloud storage and cloud apps and debate about the pros and cons of public, private and hybrid clouds, we need to consider what is real and what is merely illusion, and moreover why we should ultimately care. These beautiful lyrics from the 60s seem to foretell our current state of confusion over the cloud: I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down, and still somehow it’s cloud illusions I recall. I really don’t know clouds at all.” — Joni Mitchell, Both Sides Now from the album Clouds The cloud is a growing reality. CIOs and IT teams need to clearly understand how it can best be applied to advance their strategic interests. IDC research forecasts public cloud will grow at double digits and spending on private cloud will top $24 billion by 2016. CompTIA predicts that the next decade will see cloud computing becoming even more accepted as a foundational building block. We are seeingthe cloud go mainstream in the public sector, and Gartner predicts the cloud is moving into digital business, advising CIOs and other IT leaders to continually adapt to leverage increasing cloud capabilities. The Open Group Cloud project analyzed 24 business use-casesdriving adoption. In general, the rationale can be classified in five areas: agility, productivity, QoS, cost and the ability to take advantage of new business opportunities — all of which have been guiding principles for applying technology in the past. So how well are our past years of enterprise hardware and software know-how translating to the cloud for large-scale applications? Here are three sectors that are forging the way with successful cloud implementations in order to drive efficiency, improve time to market, and effect business transformation. The Cloud Drives Cost Efficiency World Economic Forum research reveals that governments are adopting cloud services at higher than expected rates. The growing adoption of cloud technology is happening at all levels of government around the globe. We are already seeing cloud play a role in changing how government agencies fundamentally spend money and allocate their IT resources. We came out with a cloud-first policy because… it offers a faster time to market, a reduction to risk, and hopefully a reduction in cost.” CIO Carlos Ramos, California While adoption is being driven in part by cloud-first mandates, the cloud is clearly aligned with government mission objectives. The public sector has embraced a data-driven approach — including open data and big data initiatives — to be responsive to citizens. Cloud implementations are seen as a means of moving beyond data transparency to achieve a cost-effective state of operational excellence. Four Trends to Watch in 2015 highlights the cloud as a means to be responsive to citizens’ wants, needs and ideas. For municipalities, the cloud provides equal, on-demand cost-effective access to a shared pool of computing resources. The City of Barcelona hosts 1.5 million guests for the La Merce festival using the cloud to help manage the surging foot, bike, auto and public transportation traffic. The state ofDelaware has implemented a cloud-based CRM application for constituent tracking in two months, adopting a cloud-first policy that piggybacks on federal policy. The state set up a private cloud and virtualized 85 percent of the state’s physical servers, saving $4 million per year. Delaware now has 70 applications in the cloud —from event notification to cybersecurity training. For central government organizations, including the US Department of the Interior, shared services are eclipsing “cloud-first” mandates as the driver behind cloud adoption. DOI’s groundbreaking cloud initiative consolidates all the records information programs under one IT governance system, and this shared service is expected to save an estimated $59 million in taxpayer dollars by 2020. The Cloud Supports Business Transformation Gartner Research identified financial services banking and insurance segments as two of the top cloud adopters. These segments are driven by the need for more innovation and the value they get from that innovation. Financial services firms are rewarded for systems that can process transactions faster and more securely and are providing new services, such as mobile banking and claims, that are ready-built for cloud-based systems. There is also growing competition with startups that are shifting the playing field. Way back in 2013 (a decade in cloud years), my article The Art of Banking: How Financial Services Approach Great Customer Experiences talked about how bankers would increasingly take innovation cues from consumer tech and smart retailers as they practice the art of banking. Over the past year, the cloud has proven to be both a major disrupter and an enabler for innovation. Like the other big research firms, IDC sees digital transformation as key for businesses and a bridge that CIOs must learn to cross, and that bridge includes the disruptive influence of cloud computing. A recent article from Banking Technology, “Why I’m backing the banks,” declares that traditional banks are now in a race to remain relevant as they face a slew of non-bank competitors with offer models that consumers increasingly value. Accenture found that one in five consumers would be happy to bank with PayPal — a cloud firm born in Silicon Valley. Though often a cost-saving measure, CIOs are seeing the potential in the cloud to create a flexible platform for future innovation. A poll of financial services sector decision makers revealed the top two benefits of adopting cloud platforms as cost savings (voiced by 62 percent of respondents) and a simplified IT environment (52 percent). It is this simplification of the IT environment that will enable banks to level the playing field with the upstarts: The newer entrants owe much of their success to their extreme agility with ICT: they have got where they are because they use technology better than anyone else. Yet, it would be premature to lament the passing of banks as we know them. They are increasingly taking the tech start-ups’ own medicine… [and the] search for innovation is rapidly pushing the cloud up banks’ technology agendas.” While banking has definitely upped its cloud game in the last few years, insurance is perhaps the granddad of cloud adoption. In How Cloud Computing will Transform Insurance, Accenture highlighted Insurance as being in the forefront of cloud growth and predicted that the cloud would transform the industry. On their list of reasons to adopt cloud, the “ability to respond to market change and reshape operating model[s] to address new and emerging opportunities and challenges.” An SMA study of cloud adoption trends in insurance found that 35 percent of participants said the cloud “provides companies with the flexibility needed to respond quickly to changing needs.” In retrospect, while cost savings has been a driver for insurers to adopt the cloud, there are already a number of insurance cloud success stories that illustrate the cloud’s real potential as a means of innovation and competitive advantage in a changing market with a changing customer demographic. Andre Nieuwendam, director of IT for United Property & Casualty describes their cloud success in customer-centric terms: “From an insured perspective, there are many initiatives on the table that we want to be able to provide them, file a claim electronically, check billing, and interact with customer service people in a real-time environment. Being in the cloud has enabled us to meet all of these objectives in a very, very short period of time.” The Cloud Enables Speed to Market In a recent Forbes article, “Cloud Is the Foundation for Digital Transformation,” Ray Wang (@rwang0) highlights cloud as the single most disruptive of all the new technologies. ”Cloud not only provides a source of unlimited and dynamic capacity, but also helps users consume innovation faster.” The idea of leveraging the cloud as a platform for speed in a changing market is appealing and especially resonates in the communications, media and entertainment sector, one that Gartner has identified as second only to banking in cloud adoption. In Breaking Bad: How Technology is Changing Media & Entertainment, I wrote about the digital media supply chain and how entertainment and broadcast companies are experiencing no less than an industry revolution: Motion pictures used to be cut, approved, and canned for distribution and released in a series of ‘windows’ for consumption. With digital distribution this model stops working — all the traditional ‘windows’ of distribution are collapsing. This has a ripple effect all the way down the chain of production and accounting and requires new IT systems and applications to address the new paradigm.” According to Accenture’s Content in the Cloud in the Broadcast and Entertainment Industry, the cloud can be the platform on which the digital media supply chain operates to better serve changing markets and consumption models. Cloud technology is poised to make an impact by supporting the next round of breakthroughs…from proliferating devices that demand a more flexible business model to new levels of IT capacity requirements that dictate highly scalable IT solutions to competitive pressures for speed and innovation that call for better workflow, business analytics, and customer insight.” How Cloud Computing Will Save Hollywood tells the story of how Lionsgate is using cloud to run their studio and compete with the “big guys” in the industry. Cloud has been helping them deal with their dispersed global environments during film production: media complexity, an unprecedented influx of massive amounts of data, and unique data and workflow requirements. Cloud Resolutions Perhaps the cloud is not so mysterious after all. In a Gathering Clouds interview, David Linthicum (@DavidLinthicum) shared his perspective that businesses that adopt cloud gain a strategic advantage: … the companies who [adopt cloud] can turn on a dime…. These companies will be able to leverage their information in much more innovative ways.” As industries increasingly digitize, the cloud is proving to be a useful partner to the CIO in an increasingly digital-first world. It is not surprising that KPMG’s recent survey, Elevating Business in the Cloud, found the top uses for cloud are to drive cost efficiencies and enact large-scale change including enabling a flexible and mobile workforce, improving alignment and interaction with customers, suppliers and business partners, and better leveraging data to provide insightful business decisions. The key to success, as with any new bright shiny technology, is to apply the cloud to achieve critical business and mission objectives. As Jim Buczkowski of Ford Motor says, The cloud is about delivering services, features, and information…to make the driving experience a better one.” So here’s to accomplishing great things with the cloud! Just keep these tips from KPMG in mind as you resolve to make your cloud initiative a success: Make cloud transformation a continuous process. Drive cloud transformation from the top. Focus on strong leadership and engagement. Avoid silos. Measure success. Plus one bonus tip from me: Avoid the trap of “cloud for cloud’s sake,” lest we discover the biggest truth in Joni Mitchell’s lyric is “So many things I would have done but clouds got in my way.” A version of this article first appeared in CMSWire.
