Enterprise Content Management

Sometimes it seems like passwords have been with us forever, and yet every year we’re reminded how we still don’t use them properly! The annual publication of the “worst passwords” list shows we haven’t become much more password savvy over the decade. And while several replacements for the humble password have been proposed, none have come close to the ease of using the traditional method. But this changes with the introduction of Passkeys – an update in Apple’s latest iOS 16 operating system. Passkeys could be the long-awaited solution to password malpractice, and the near-constant problem of compromised credentials

Messagepoint has announced the launch of Semantex, its new division providing an artificial intelligence (AI)-based content intelligence platform designed to empower developers tackling complex content-related challenges.

In order to adopt cloud IaaS and PaaS successfully (and arguably, to adopt SaaS optimally), an organization needs skills. Most of all, it needs technical skills for the whole application lifecycle in the cloud — the ability to architect applications (and their underlying stacks) for the cloud, develop for the cloud, secure the cloud, run and manage and govern the cloud environments and the applications in those environments. The more cloud-natively you can do these things, the better.

There’s so much more to the word “content” than how we use it in the technology and knowledge management (KM) fields. In the corporate world, content refers to documents, news sites, and customer conversations in multiple media and social network discussions. That’s content as a noun. But content is also an adjective, as in “are you content with your meal?” And con- tent is a verb, as in “to content yourself with your meal.”

Several customers have asked us how they can change the way they manage records using Content Manager to get a better return on their investment. They tell us that they no longer want their Content Manager system to be the single source of truth. Why? Because staff are required to understand how and when to use Content Manager. That is, Content Manager is enforcing a centralised repository model, which means staff need to take extra steps in capturing, managing or searching for records – something they would rather avoid.

Salesforce has announced that MuleSoft completed the Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment, providing government users with compliance with IRAP assessment guidelines to PROTECTED.
