Solve Big Problems by Thinking Small

To solve big problems, sometimes you need to think small. The challenge you face trying to solve an inherited, calcified enterprise can be overwhelming. It is. The only way to solve it is by breaking down into it's smallest modular pieces. Approach it childlike, and question the common sense of anything. Chances are, if it doesn't make sense...it doesn't make sense. Due to everyone's biases, you may be the first to actually address it.

Rather than trying to solve Big Data as a whole, try and solve one single issue at a time. This will shed light on the next issue, and so on. Knowledge Management over all of your data is unique for each organization. They do business differently, are found in different verticals, and face a range of different issues. Our advise is to start small, with something which can be implemented today. After that is completed, move on to the next one. This will give you greater insight into the specific issues you face, and will have a big picture view of them all. As the old adage goes "The only way to eat an entire elephant is....one bite at a time."  In this video below, Stephen Dubner, author of Freakonomics discusses the value of solving big problems by thinking small. We couldn't agree more.  

Centralpoint allows you to take on these challenges one problem at a time. It does this by managing your information in a modular, organized way. Centralpoint empowers you to manage your content (aka information) into it's smallest (sub atomic) elements. In this way, you can do more with the informaton, mashing up the elements unique for everyone in your organization by their department or role. Some call this CCMS (or Componentized Content Management Systems), where Gartner calls it DXP (Digital Experience Platforms) which Oxcyon ranks in their Magic Quadrant. Whatever you choose to call it, Centralpoint maximizing re-use for all by thinking small. 

Everyone is biased in some way. Some may be committed to an older, unsuccessful strategy. They are resolute to solve an old problem which may have calcified beyond anyone's ability to fix. Let's face it your knowledge ecosystem (or enterprise)  has been cobbled together over many years, by many different people. The solution is to rethink the entire approach, thinking small ; careful to solve only one micro problem at a time. Before you know it, each of these micro solutions will result in a harmonious and organic strategy. Centralpoint's Module Gallery provides the modular architecture needed for you to do this, one challenge at a time, adding to a new enterprise.
