The weekly recap: October 18 | Meow

Ah, mid-October. Time to start looking out for black cats. Or time to accidentally send an email about cats to people who you definitely don’t want to send an email about cats.

I mean, who hasn’t done that?

But as you already know, we can’t talk about cats until we check in and find out what happened in the #HylandLife this week.

The Hyland Blog

  • Ever wondered what it would be like to work as an expat in a cool place like Sydney, Australia, or London, England? Or maybe you’re an executive trying to figure out how to mesh cultures in your offices around the world.

Either way, you’ll want to read this interview with Bob Dunn, Hyland’s associate vice president of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa as well as the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

  • Speaking of the Pacific region, this week, Laura Pietromica, lead customer advisor, healthcare sales at Hyland, detailed why she’s excited about heading to the OnBase Summit | ANZ.

Laura – as well as executives and experts from our headquarters in the U.S. – will be joining our APAC team at three OnBase Summit | ANZ events in Sydney and Perth, Australia, as well as Wellington, New Zealand.

Hyland news

  • The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) has implemented ShareBase as its secure, online file sharing platform. TASB used several cloud-sharing hosts before, but none were able to fully integrate with the organization’s enterprise information platform, requiring users to download and upload documents from one system to another.

“ShareBase met our goals of reducing IT costs as well as creating efficiencies in accessing and sharing documents,” said Kristi Palm, IT project manager at TASB. “ShareBase has made it easier for people inside our organization, as well as external stakeholders, to access information. One group uses it out in the field to quickly access documents that they need.”

“Thanks to a diverse community of willing collaborators, Cleveland is well suited to build an ecosystem of blockchain technology supporters,” said Brenda Kirk, co-chair of the Blockland Talent Development and Retention node, and EVP, chief product and strategy officer at Hyland. “People are at the top of our agenda, and the Blockland initiative and Solutions Conference will foster meaningful conversations to help us identify, attract, train and retain amazing talent in our region.”

My fav thing of the week: Cookie cats

I don’t wear pajamas.

  • This week, the U.S. embassy in Canberra, Australia, inadvertently sent an email inviting people to a meeting. The U.S. Department of State, who sent the email that was supposed to be a test, isn’t saying how many people outside of the organization received the email, but it was a good one.

Instead of details about the meeting, the core of the email was a picture of a cat kicking back on a couch wearing a Cookie Monster pajama outfit with a plateful of cookies sitting on her lap.

I’m not saying ShareBase is the perfect solution for this. More importantly, I’m not sure I want to live in a world where things like this don’t happen. However, knowing you have a secure way to safely share information inside and outside of your organization will help you sleep at night. Especially if you’re afraid of (cookie) monsters.

That’s it. Have a great weekend everyone!
