Driving home for ChristmasReal life isn’t quite as romantic as Chris Rea implies, and driving home for Christmas can be more like the road to hell.

The ability to Write, Record and Review all your information making it easier for you to check back on what you discussed and agreed – safety and securely.

If you work in Marketing in Banking or Finance, or any other forms-centric Marketing department, you might be familiar with the following scenario…

You want to distribute electronic communications to customers but your document templates need amending to fit the campaign. You must request these amends from IT but there’s a delay as they struggle to find workarounds to suit your needs. You miss your deadline. Perhaps the next one too!

Digital Workspace explained

A “digital workspace” is the combination of a document collaboration tool, coupled to a video conferencing service and merged with digital signing tools and the ability to verify identity details. All functionalities are wrapped in a cloud service that is perpetually “on” and offers the ability to record for audit and regulatory compliance purposes.

Nearly two decades into the 21st century, we are getting closer to the "paperless society." Thanks to emerging paperless technologies, business owners can bypass many headaches and decrease their environmental footprint at the same time. Not only does going paperless clear clutter from your office environment, but it also saves you money and is a great PR message for potential customers and partners!

Never has the face of banking changed as much as it has in the past decade. Trust is low, innovation in user interfaces is increasingly driven by consumer technology and security sees experimentation with biometrics and multi-factors for authentication and access. But the change in the next decade is going to be more fundamental as some of the world’s largest firms focus on this space. Ones such as Google, Apple, FaceBook, Amazon, and AliBaba (dubbed “GAFAA”) are bastions of innovation and have billions of regular users.

Icon UK's customer communications management (CCM) solution - DOPiX - is a powerful CCM system which is used to drive organisational improvements and customer loyalty across some of Europe's largest financial enterprises

Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Alibaba, collectively "GAFAA", are always on, globally connected, consumer-centric mega-companies that are changing the digital landscape and customers’ expectations of it. What are the implications for our Banks?

Wacom chose the National Theatre’s rooftop terrace as the UK launch platform for the ground-breaking Wacom Clipboard. From here one can imagine the varied journey paths of a paper based file record to Whitehall, but even if folded into the best paper plane a digital equivalent will arrive faster and more securely!

IBM

IBM today, Nov. 10, 2015, announced the End of Support for their core document management mainframe software Application Support Facility, “ASF” (announcement ZP15-0642). IBM has identified the DOPiX ASF Replacement Kit (DOPiX ARK), from IBM Business Partner icon, as the recommended replacement for ASF as stated in the announcement. All existing customers are strongly advised to review the essential information provided by links herein.

This article provides key information on the recommended solution from IBM. 

IBMIcon UK CEO Chris Jones and Icon founder Uwe Seltmann present “The Key Role of Customer Communication Software in a Digital Enterprise” at GSE UK 2015. Guide Share Europe (GSE) is IBM's premier large systems User Group and the Annual Conference in the UK is at Whittlebury Hall on 3rd-4th November 2015.

IBM

Customers still on IBM's Enterprise Document Management platform Application Support Facility ("ASF") have been facing an issue for some years as IBM withdraws support for both ASF and closely related Document Composition Facility ("DCF") software. Changing platform from this typically mainframe resident software is going to be costly and complex with most choices. 

With icon's DOPiX, IBM now offers next generation capabilities for document creation, formatting and output processing on an industrial scale. Current customer investments in ASF and DCF technical skills can be protected with binary compatibility whilst also enabling modern functionality. The icon DOPiX /ARK v4.0 offers an ASF Replacement Kit for z/OS mainframe use.
