Welcome to my hub

This hub is the startingpoint of my digital presence. I'm passionate about Enterprise Content Management ever since my first steps in the ECM arena back in the early days of this century. When not at work, I like to spend time with my family but also to put my eye behind the camera. Most of my photo’s feature animal portraits. You can view my best of portfolio at 500px. On 500px you will also find the full collection of photo's and those that are for sale.
At a regular basis I write blogs for Informed Consulting about ECM and for Zoom.nl about photography.

Social Welfare at the ECM Workplace

A few months ago, Linda gave birth to her son Luca. Linda is the wife of Stephan, a colleague of mine. Curious as he is, Luca was premature when he decided that it was time to see the light of day. That by itself wasn’t any problem at all. The world was ready for him.
The birth of Luca triggered me to share a story that I tell my customers in the early days of a document management project. By now you are wondering why the birth of Luca trigger this story.

Diversity at the ECM Workplace

Just the other day I was driving home from the office reflecting back at events that happened in the last few days and weeks. As always driving home is one of those precious moments where I can sit back and reflect. Sitting in the car in traffic, it finally dawned to me.
For a couple of days already I was trying to put finger on something that bothered me. I had been working on multiple engagements over the last few weeks. Some only related to EMC Documentum. Some only to Microsoft SharePoint and some included both. All were in different industries. If you wouldn’t know better, there was nothing they had in common. But there was.

A Case of Component Based Authoring

Yesterday afternoon I attended an EMC webinar about their Next Generation solutions for Life Science, when a slide passed by about Component Based Authoring. It was a different way of expressing the same subject Jeroen van Rotterdam addressed recently in his EMC Spark blog called ‘Who is using Word? It’s fun to read about a trend – in this case Component Based Authoring – when you’re already practising this approach. It feels for me as if this is the only way forward in case based solutions being delivered today.

Improving the DIA EDM Reference Model

EMC, by means of its Information Intelligence Group (IIG), has provided new solutions for Life Science. The solutions are based upon their Documentum D2 flagship. Currently 2 solutions are out on the market: eTMF for managing Trial Master File and LSQM for managing Quality and Manufacturing. Both eTMF and LSQM rely on their Life Science Core Document Framework (CDF), a data model for managing information in the Life Science domains. This CDF is a core part of both solutions, like a data model is in any solution. And like any other solution, success in using the solutions relies heavily on the fit of the data model. To guarantee success, EMC has adopted the DIA EDM Reference Model to manage life science documentation in the Regulatory, Quality, Non-Clinical, and Clinical domains. If you’re not working in the Life Science industry you might wonder: who is DIA and what is their EDM Reference Model?

Your new interface in …? D2? xCP? Both?

Going through the Retention Policy Services class at Momentum 2012 in Vienna, I could not keep from thinking of a new interface. Why? I’ve seen so much of D2 and xCP during the past days that the new user interfaces and the new way of solution building, have become to norm for me. Although brand new, this is what customers expected for a long time.

Photo Stories

Storytelling exists as long as humanity exists. Nothing new there.
Only recently it has become a replacement for traditional photo-blogs.
And so I switched... but need to get the hang of it. Be patient :-)

Overleven in Tulum

This story, "Survival in Tulum" tells a little bit about the Mayan village Tulum, Mexico. It's not the most famous site, but still in good condition. If you're interested to go, be warned: it's hot out there! The sight of the refressing blue waters of the ocean doesn't help much. What does, is an afternoon dive in Xelha. A scuba park nearby.

Isla Holbox, Mexico

In a first attempt - part of the review of MyAlbum - I created a story about Isla Holbox, Mexico.... without text. So, without telling much - though pictures tell a thousand words - it was a good first shot at it. Major lesson learned: is story is much more than thousand words locked into a picture...
