Marko Sillanpää: Predicting the Future of Documentum and EMC's ECD

SAA Joins with Archivist Groups to Submit Recommendations to Trump Transition Team

SAA has joined with the Council of State Archivists, the National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators, and the Regional Archival Associations Consortium to submit “Recommendations on Federal Archives and Records Management Issues” to the Trump presidential transition team. Read the entire document at http://files.archivists.org/advocacy/Archives-and-Records-Management-Issues_2016%20Presidential-Transition-Team.pdf.

I read the full statement and agree with just about all of it. And it should be a non-partisan thing; I'd expect the SAA et al would make the same sorts of requests to a President-Elect Clinton.

Collabware: Why achieve the DoD 5015.2 certification? Not sure I buy it - I tend to agree that a) DoD 5015.2 is poorly thought-out and b) completely beside the point for anyone not working at the U.S. Department of Defense - therefore c) it ends up being a useless checklist on an RFP while at the same time d) making no claims as to usability, fit for purpose, etc. Nevertheless I will watch to see the outcome and again this is a great example of a vendor blog post that contributes meaningfully to the conversation.
