The key to capturing people-powered BI lies in the design of the Smartsnip
They represent an atomic unit of knowledge: a piece of content, the context where it came from, and a user-assertion about the piece of content.
They are dead-simple to create. If you can draw a box with your mouse, you can create a Smartsnip.
THEY ARE ORGANICALLY GENERATED BY USERS CONSUMING CONTENT IN ANY APPLICATION WITH A SMARTSNIPS-COMPATIBLE CONTENT VIEWER.
THEY ARE SELF-REFERENCING AND ALWAYS RETAIN THEIR CONTEXT -- THE UNDERLYING DOCUMENT -- WHICH IS STORED IN A UNIFIED FORMAT REGARDLESS OF INITIAL FILE TYPE.
They each have their own URL.
As employees consume content, the Smartsnips they create form a new layer of enterprise intelligence
...like crowd-sourced Cliffnotes for corporate content
Our platform enables unified capture and use of Smartsnips across existing applications
Traditional knowledge management solutions have centered around a single application that employees would use to capture knowledge. In today's enterprise, employees use multiple types of systems for consuming content and executing business processes:
- Social networks
- Content management systems
- Project management systems
- Learning management systems
- Customer relationship management systems
- Email systems
- Instant messaging systems
- Native applications
- And so on and so forth
And they change all the time. This is why we designed Pandexio as a platform that can plug-into just about any system for the capture and use of Smartsnips.
