Open Source ECM: My topic for tomorrow’s AIIM DFW Meeting

I’ll be speaking at the AIIM DFW meeting tomorrow at the University of Dallas. My topic is ECM and Open Source Software: A New Force in ECM Solutions. Here’s the abstract:

Open source software is finally getting the recognition it deserves from analysts like Forrester and Gartner as a disruptive force in IT. Over the years, open source has “climbed up the stack” from operating systems to databases and now to business applications where it has established a firm foothold in the content management space.What should enterprises know about open source content management? Is it really just for Web Content Management (WCM) or does it meet the needs of broader Enterprise Content Management (ECM) deployments? Arelarge enterprises doing big, meaningful content management projects with open source or is its appeal limited to subsets of the market? What about Enterprise 2.0 initiatives? Can you assemble an Enterprise 2.0 solution from open source components? How does it compare with something like Sharepoint?

If you are in the Dallas area and are interested in the topic you should swing by. And, as always, please say hello and mention the blog. I look forward to meeting you.
