Alan Pelz-Sharpe came over to London in December 2010, and met with James Lappin to record this podcast.

Alan had recently delivered a training course where he dealt with the traditional enterprise content management suites (Open Text, Documentum etc.) on day one, and Microsoft's SharePoint on day two.   We discussed whether or not SharePoint can meaningfully be called an enterprise content management system, and conclude that it can, albeit with significant points of difference from the traditional suites.

Alan expressed scepticism about the impact of cloud and mobile devices on enterprise content management buying decisions in the short term.  His experience had been that whereas vendors of cloud services were making a lot of noise about the cloud, the organisations that he helps with buying decisions were not yet considering in the cloud.  Alan said that he could not see business critical information moving to the cloud any time soon.

We also discussed:

  • The future prospects for Microsoft Office
  • The challenges posed for the implementation of retention schedules by the fact that cloud providers replicate information across different servers and different datacentres to maximise availability and up-time.   How would it be possible to guarantee that all instances of a particular document or piece of information had been deleted?
