Does the General Data Protection Regulation apply to paper data?
In short, the GPDR (EU 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Council aim to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The regulation was approved on 27 April 2016 and will be effective as from 25 May 2018. It is applicable to all data, in any form, that can be used to identify a person. This means it also applies to paper data.

eIDAS in 8 Bullet Points
The eIDAS Regulation was set out to enable convenient and secure electronic transactions in all EU member states. Are you wondering how your company can adhere to the eIDAS Regulation? We will guide you through the eIDAS Regulation in eight bullet points. The eIDAS Regulation No 910/2014 went into force on 1 July 2016, having ‘direct effect’, thus being mandatory with precedent over any conflicting national laws. It replaces the older eSignature Directive and paves the way for a legal framework for electronic signatures and other newly defined electronic trust services.

3 Common Use Cases for Digital Sealing
Digital seals/signatures represent important benefits for organizations but may also demand significant investments to realize this step in digital transformation. Existing processes do not allow for the signing/sealing process and require systems to be adapted. You should therefore first consider the processes in your organization where the integration with such systems has a limited impact on your existing environments in combination with a quick ROI.

5 Reasons why you should secure your electronic files with a digital seal
The benefits of electronic files are sufficiently well known. By converting your paper documents to electronic files you have access to all your documents from anywhere in the world and you can easily share your documents with anyone all over the globe. In the meantime, you save office space, you maintain an eco-friendlier environment and the ease of storing and searching electronic documents saves both time and money. No wonder our ways of doing business become more and more digital.

How to protect your business against fraud with a digital seal
As our ways of doing business become more and more digital, paper document streams are increasingly unproductive and slow down the overall processes on which financial organizations spend lots of money optimizing. On the other hand, with increased digital document exchange, how can your clients really be sure that the invoice they received is indeed the correct one and hasn’t been victim to fraud? Or how can you prove that a contract was signed by you?

Convert everything to PDF/A? Including PDF files?
In recent years, as the need for Long Term Archiving and Long Term Preservation of "Digital Born" information has increased, so has the call for a universal archiving format been increasing. The idea behind this is, is to have a file format that allows you to permanently store and read information without any loss of information. If possible, even the “graphical” information, in case e.g. text color or the font used would convey any information. Enter PDF/A, the solution to it all. Or not?

Why you need to think about Digital Sealing.... now!
Did you say sealing? Don’t you mean signing? No, not really. When you sign a document electronically, it’s called “digital signing” or “electronic signing”. It has the same effect as signing a paper document with a pen, like when you sign the papers to buy a house or your employment contract. The actual act of signing a document digitally can take many forms. But how can you make it stick? Which methods or procedures assure you that it’s a valid signature...

How to keep accessing vital information whatever its age

Application retirement, or also known as Application Decommissioning, concerns the separation of applications and the information stored in them. Indeed, this information has to be available longer than the application itself. Storing this important information in an archive offers the opportunity to phase out old applications while preserving vital data and, at the same time, to realize major savings. Application retirement is applicable in every business context. Indeed, information is stored everywhere in very disparate systems. Bringing this information together in one single archive is not only cost effective but it is also a blessing for users. Download t...

Looking at “Negative Space” to Drive Positive ROI in Healthcare
When I see prospects weighing IT buying decisions, I am always surprised by those that focus exclusively on what “new” functionality they will enjoy. This is certainly important. But an experienced architect will realize that this is counter-intuitive. Don’t look for space, but look for negative space. Similarly, one of the main benefits I see in hospitals evaluating application migration are the headaches they take out and not only the new capabilities they will gain. Decommissioning older applications is a common example. More benefits...

Debugging the DocuShare Tomcat server using JPDA
ometimes it might be necessary to debug a (DocuShare) Tomcat instance. What if you deployed a custom webapp or servlet on the default DocuShare Tomcat that interacts with the DocuShare and all of a sudden you get issues in a production environment? The easiest way would be to debug your deployed code directly in production in a non-invasive way. This can be achieved by using the Java Platform Debugger Architecture (JPDA). This enables you to debug your code line by line from your IDE (ie. Eclipse) while it is deployed on a Tomcat server. Sadly, it requires a non-standard way to set it up for DocuShare...

Integrating GWT with Spring and Hibernate
The following blogpost will be a little different than my others. It will not focus on ECM related development but rather GWT development. Although not really related to ECM, I figured I'd write a tutorial on how to set up a GWT application with a Spring/Hibernate backend since it took me a long time to get it working exactly the way I wanted. There are a lot of tutorials but I thought they all missed something. All source code of this tutorial is available.

The key reasons for ECM project failures are taken from the AIIM website. The major interesting fact about those key reasons for ECM implementation failures, is that non of these reasons are directly technology related, as many of us ECM professionals have known for quite a while. The main reasons are related to issues about lack of knowledge, sponsorship and change management:
