In simplest terms, content-centric digital workflows are systems that facilitate the movement of content both within and beyond an enterprise. They are put in place to complete business processes efficiently and get this data quickly incorporated into back-end systems of record – all while ensuring a high level of information integrity and a reliable basis for strategic operational decisions.

Services organizations have been using transmittal workflows for years. The process consists of collecting multiple documents — some contractual, some operational and some informational — and attaching a summary cover sheet to create a deliverable package. This package, which can be delivered either by courier, mail or fax, today is mostly sent by email.

In the wake of the recent Facebook and Cambridge Analytica scandal, data and personal privacy matters have come to the forefront of consumer’s minds. When an organization like Facebook finds itself in trouble, big data is often blamed, but IS big data actually at fault?

Today, data breaches and cyber-theft are at an all-time high, with new and evolving technologies being used to instigate as well as prevent attacks.

The trend from both a regulatory as well as an operational point of view is toward more stringent, more comprehensive and more transparent, unified information governance policies and procedures.

Linguists regularly visit Indigenous communities to gather knowledge and document the languages spoken. When they leave, however, these linguists historically take with them the knowledge they gleaned from Indigenous peoples. The appropriation of this data, and its placement in academic and reference texts, produces a painful paradox for Indigenous peoples: they often lose ownership of their own cultural assets, and end up having to buy back that knowledge to preserve it.
It’s kinda funny. You don’t realize how behind the times you may be until you reflect on the past. I can remember reading "1984" by George Orwell – before 1984 — which made me think twice about the future date within my lifetime. I remember seeing “2001: A Space Odyssey” – a movie about the future in space when machine learning crossed into maniacal machine behavior, also before 2001 — and needing to see it again as there were a lot of futuristic themes in that sci-fi plot-line. [This movie was one of many that set the stage that terrorized the general population into thinking that machines would take over the world!]

In most instances, these two departments are married by a sales department that has a broad understanding of both disciplines and can decipher the languages of both.
