ERDMS


EDRMS: Amazing technicolour dream coat or Emperor’s new clothes?
Steve Bailey, JISC infoNet

In this paper Steve Bailey sets out to explore some of the potential problems and pitfalls associated with implementing an EDRM system. It examines the logic of some of the concepts which underpin the technology and what they will mean for the average college or university and draws attention to some of the key issues to be considered before an implementation is even considered.
Presentation
Information matters
Sarah Wickham, University of Huddersfield

Sarah will examine the persistent drivers for change in improving the management of information, and the contribution of EDRMS to information management. She will consider the change management issues inherent in EDRMS projects drawing on her experience at the University of Huddersfield and in local government. Huddersfield's EDRMS project began with a pilot in 2004 and the EDRMS was adopted as a developing University system in 2006.

Presentation
Preparing for EDRM – a case study
Simon Ackerley, University of Hertfordshire

The University of Hertfordshire has adopted JISC’s systematic approach in its preparations for EDRM and has begun a progressive enterprise wide implementation across the institution. This case study takes a pragmatic look at how the University has geared up for EDRM and the rewards, challenges and lessons learned along the way.

Towards Knowledge Management: EMC after the first year
Will Miller, University College London

In late 2007, UCL signed with Dell as prime contractor to install EMC. This was after a five year search for a supplier, and the second time an EDRM company had been signed. At the end of 2008, UCL will have completed two pilot projects, but how much further must it go to come close to the holy grail of institutional knowledge management? A discussion about the hard road of getting an EDRM project started, and the work that must still be done.
