Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of joining AIIM VP Doug Miles in discussing the results of AIIM's "Top Skills in ECM" survey. Last fall Oracle co-designed and sponsored an online survey conducted by AIIM that compiled input from 656 ECM industry participants regarding what they thought were the most important ECM skills- now and in the future - as well as some interesting demographics around the participants' roles, career goals, approaches to training and, last but not least, current compensation. This topic seems to have hit a nerve with over 1100 people registering in advance and over 500 people dialed into the live broadcast.
A few highlights from my perspective:
•In addition to the overall high interest I was pleased to see what a good response we had from outside of North America. 15% of the survey responses came from which I think reflects well on the level of interest there. Asia and ANZ was another 6 % - which may not seem like a lot but given that we didn't target any outreach to those geographies, I think that getting 40 survey responses demonstrates that there are some serious ECM folks out there looking to understand what is going on in other parts of the world.
We had a lot of great Q&A at the end of the session that was captured in the webcast recording. If you didn't catch the live webcast you can listen to the playback here or plug into the twitter feed on the topic here.
