This guy might be a nutjob, but he is one of my favorite columnists. Check out what he has to say about the potential impact of SOX and other content management-based regulations. If any shard of this turns about to be true — and Cringely did (in a very unpopular move) accurately predict the limited effect of Y2K on the nation’s IT infrastructure — it could further turn the ECM industry on it’s ear. Under this scenario, ECM/records management suddenly becomes a company-saving application, and the stakes suddenly get a lot higher.
