Remember when I talked about how U.S. government employees throw out millions of pages every day? Well, on a more hopeful note, I came across a CMSWire article from earlier this year about the impact the new Obama administration may have on records management in the future. Marisa Peacock speaks of the document management industry’s bright outlook

Check it out: The Washington Times reports that a full third of the printing performed by U.S. government employees is instantly tossed out or recycled.
I’m here to talk some more about that fun little acronym I know you all are so fond of: ECM. Enterprise Content Management can be a great tool to meet the compliance requirements of your business, but like all things, you need to understand it to do it right. I’m here to save you from plummeting head-first into some common pitfalls when it comes to ECM and regulation.
One question I get on a regular basis is from companies wondering how to get the maximum exposure for their white papers and other material but not loose complete control over their intellectual property. In this free-wheeling time, if you place too many restrictions on your Web-based material, no one will quote from it or pick it up in various blogs and other sites (which is often the point).
You need a reminder that the economy is in the dumps right now as much as a paraglider needs a tornado. But the fact remains, the flow of currency is partially paralyzed, and that means skittish companies are cutting budgets and scrutinizing the management of IT expenses, kind of like they did in '02 post dot-com bubble bust.
So when I drive down to my local Best Buy to pick up advertised gadgetry and marriage-saving appliances--like a dishwasher--I’d like to think that what the manufacturer says about their wares has more credibility than an online dating site power-user. But at some point, we’ve all taken that trip to the land of suck. You buy it, take it home, and before you know it, features quietly underwhelm or don’t work, or it simply breaks too soon, leaving you digging up the warranty card.
Hey, remember when everyone was talking about the paperless office being just around the corner? Those were the same folks who thought we’d be in flying cars by now.
Frustration is a fact of life, but we have a choice on how to deal with it. Unluckily for some, that means blowing a fuse no matter what; and luckily for others, letting rationality and coping mechanisms take over.
Doc thinks networked environments are both a boon and a burden to organizations. They greatly improve productivity and reduce cost by allowing customers, vendors, partners, employees, and other stakeholders to share and access information in real time. But increased access to sensitive information makes networks vulnerable to malicious activity and misuse. There have been numerous high-profile data security breaches and losses, prompting a rise in government regulations surrounding data privacy.
Okay. So I have racked my pea-brain to come up with the list of features and benefits to consider when thinking of mobile printing, or MP (Okay, I made that up, so don’t go looking it up).
