This issue of the DM e-newsletter contains some fascinating reading for anyone interested in the future of the sector: EASY Software's Howard Frear takes a look at the trends affecting the industry, including the idea that DM/ECM will start to be seen as a 'cost of doing business' - a change that is long overdue, according to Frear: "Content-rich processes are triggered by content events such as 'Save', 'Move' or 'Open'. These will allow new employees to drop right in, have immediate access to the customer data they need to do their job, plus get supported from the apps, which will also supply managers with the right data to help guide the whole process. The promise is 'Just add the people and the revenue gets generated from the first minute', and documents and content will be fundamental to that, helping the transportation of the right information through the process from one end to the other."

Elsewhere PFU Fujitsu's Sabine Holocher takes a wider view, examining how different European cultures are driving uptake of DM in often widely varying ways: "Paper-free initiatives in Poland have taken aim at the healthcare system. The goal is to have all medical documentation digitised by 2017, while Italy's Digital Agenda focuses on the areas of digital identity, digital administration, digital education, digital health, the digital divide, electronic payments and invoicing, and digital justice. The Netherlands plans to have a "Digital Government" by 2017 while the Belgian government aims to have a digital federal government by the end of its tenure." It will be interesting for all of us to see how the UK compares with our European neighbours, both now and into the future.
