Welcome to the latest blog post from the Document Management Collaborators’ social media space thedmcollaborators.

This week’s article is from ECM market observer and Editor of Document Manager Dave Tyler on the paperless office. 

Dave examines an article in the Guardian at the end of last year which stated, ‘Like fusion power, the paperless world has been just a decade away for the past half century, approaching but never arriving’ — with global paper consumption rising by 50% between 1980 and 2011.

For Dave, the fact we still have paper does not mean the original — and enduring — argument for digital working has ended at all. It’s only strengthened as the speed of business and 21st century life has quickened.

If you have a view on Dave’s article, please add a comment and open up the debate. And please also add to the conversation on social media.
