Have you ever been to a Cirque du Soleil show?

I saw one for the first time in March and it was incredible. I saw “O” which is their water performance. It takes place in, around and above a 1.5-million-gallon-of-water pool. Every performer is beyond talented, but my only criticism is that sometimes there was too much to watch. In one scene, there is a man casually walking around in head-to-toe flames, contortionists moving their bodies in unnatural ways, a handful of divers flying off 30-foot-high swings and doing multiple flips in the air before breaking the surface of the water, and other miscellaneous actors in whimsical costumes running across the stage.

I struggled to truly absorb all that was in front of me because each thing was so fantastic and it was all happening at once.

How does this apply to enterprise content management?

The scene I described is similar to how I see the enterprise content management industry today. The industry is moving quickly and as things like artificial intelligence (A.I.), cloud, cognitive computing and analytics continue to evolve, it’s hard to know where to look.

To help out, we composed a list of resources that give great insight into the enterprise content management industry. Our employees often direct clients to the below content because each piece addresses common questions they hear. These resources are also helpful if you simply want to know where the industry is going. We strive to create visionary solutions and one way we do that by staying abreast with industry trends.
