The weekly recap: May 25

My wife and I love animals. Currently, we have six adopted pets – three dogs and three cats. … I know. I know.

Today, we’re going to focus on our medium-sized cat, Sugar.

I was never a cat guy, but there’s a whole thing. Some might call it spiritual. Others might call it ridiculous.

I’m in the middle. Spiridiculous, if you will.

Anyway, my internet speed recently dropped down to what they call “carrier pigeon.” It was that bad. But on Wednesday afternoon, a nice young man came out and gave me a new modem. Just like that, I’m back to lightning speed.

Cats at the workplace

Are you writing a story about me?

But I wanted to test a few things out. So, after dinner, I added an image to an empty blog post to see how fast it would load and display a preview of the finished product. Again, lightning speed.

When I was about to hit delete, Sugar – aka Sugie, aka Sugie Mo – jumped up on the desk. I jerked my wrist and hit publish. So, if you’re a subscriber to this blog and saw an empty notification Wednesday evening, my apologies.

Enough about my unlicensed petting zoo. Here’s what we were up to at Hyland this week.

The Hyland Blog

  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is here! Are you ready?

What makes complying with new privacy and security regulations like GDPR so challenging is not so much the technical requirements they impose on organizations, but rather the fundamental shift they require in the practices and culture surrounding information management.

Read more about what Dennis Chepurnov has to say about how you can leverage data discovery to review and improve policies and procedures. With the right technology, you can reduce security risks, improve compliance, empower employees, and foster greater internal awareness.

  • Healthcare data will reach 15 zetabytes by 2020, according to Healthcare IT News. That’s equivalent to four times the amount of information contained on the internet!

Without a comprehensive visualization approach as part of an enterprise imaging strategy to manage, access, and transform the way HDOs use all this data, writes Phil Wasson, these organizations will be relying on an incomplete clinical picture of the patient.

Hyland news

Together, Hyland and IOFM presented the latest IOFM benchmark data and provided expert advice on building an action plan to streamline AP operations.

  • Also this week, Hyland introduced its new capture solution for financial institutions – Brainware for Lending. With greater transparency, lending institutions can process loans faster, with fewer resources, and improve interactions with borrowers.

My favorite thing this week

You make the call.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend, everyone! And remember, keep your cats off your desk when you’re working. (This note is mostly for me.)
