Roger Bonine of IT Manager.Net hits a towering home run with his post “Are Document Management Systems Broken?” His post was a response to Cindy Chick’s response to my discussion-starter question of, uh, are document management systems broken?
Roger makes his points so well that I simply suggest that you read the post for yourself. I think that it is essential reading for any law firm CIO or IT Director thinkiing about the document management issue. Roger has not only identified the key problems, but, and this is the point I want to emphasize, he has also developed some creative ways to address those problems.
Roger’s firm has a tremendous (and probably underpaid) asset. Roger, feel free to take a copy of this post into your bosses and say “Look this guy says I deserve a big raise immediately.”
