[Sigia-l] Semantic Web -- a 2009 scenario

If your eyes usually glaze over the minutiae of semantic web and RDF, here's
a fanciful (and yet also insightful and graspable) scenario of how the
interconnected architecture of the web may come together in 2009:

[Sigia-l] Gathering a Survey Panel

Does anyone have experience putting together a large panel of people (20,000) who have agreed to receive
surveys and other research?  Is it better to go through a company who does this?  Do you know of any?  I have few
ideas as to where to start on this.

[Sigia-l] Good enough run amok?

You thought GoogleNews replacing human editors at news aggregation was

[Sigia-l] working with BPM specialists

Howdy:
Have any members of this list worked with specialists in BPM?

This is "Business process management software". BPM encompasses everything from
standardizing workflow in a website to determining how to link back end
enterprise content and web based forms--- either for reporting purposes or for
web based data entry. cNost of them should be working with Information
Architects. Not sure how many of them do, and how useful they have been.

what have been your experiences?
How well did various reps & consultants understand your objectives and assist
you with process modelingnd/or design?
What areas did you need help and fail to get it?

RE: [Sigia-l] working with BPM specialists

Hi, Jack -

I have not worked for a fee with BPM specialists, but have networked with
them and gotten to know them quite well. The company I have talked to is
Ultimus. This relationship started on a plane last summer, when I was
working on business process redesign for a client and my seatmate and I got
into a discussion about it. We've attempted to establish "synergistic
relationships" but nothing paying has panned out thus far.

Ultimately, they recognized that as a usability specialist, I could do the
up-front, requirements gathering and initial designs - they could automate
the designs and test them, providing an end-to-end solution.

The company I have talked to is Ultimus.

Laurie
