AIIM Adds Resources For Content Management Neophytes

AIIM, the Association for Information and Image Management, has long been a useful resource for established content management industry professionals as well as organizations just getting started with piecing together a content strategy.

AIIM, the Association for Information and Image Management, has long been a useful resource for established content management industry professionals as well as organizations just getting started with piecing together a content strategy.AIIM has added to its site over the past few weeks high-level introductions to a number of content management topics, which will be particularly helpful to people in the second category. Among these are What is Email Management?, What is Electronic Records Management?, What is Enterprise Content Management?, What is Business Process Management (BPM)?, and Best Practices 101. These aren't by any means a full education on the topics, but they do serve as a nice primer. You can also find a handful of other subjects in the Resource Center section of the site.

Also new on the site are the articles from the November/December issue of Infonomics, AIIM's bimonthly publication. Although the issue has been available as a downloadable digital magazine for a few weeks, it's helpful to be able to reference them online.

There are a number of good pieces this month, including a comparison of the similarities and differences between digital asset management and Web content management, and a look at the return on investment for software-as-a-service offerings. Both articles are worth a read.

Content management is a broad topic, and sometimes it's tough to know where to start. Being able to bridge the gap between seasoned vets and content management newbies is one of the things that makes AIIM so helpful.

Organizations that have so far ignored social - either because they thought it was a passing fad or just didnít have the resources to properly evaluate potential use cases and products - must start giving it serious consideration.
