PEOPLE-POWERED BI


The key to capturing people-powered BI lies in the design of the Smartsnip

 

  1. 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.

  2. They are dead-simple to create. If you can draw a box with your mouse, you can create a Smartsnip.

  3. THEY ARE ORGANICALLY GENERATED BY USERS CONSUMING CONTENT IN ANY APPLICATION WITH A SMARTSNIPS-COMPATIBLE CONTENT VIEWER.

  4. THEY ARE SELF-REFERENCING AND ALWAYS RETAIN THEIR CONTEXT -- THE UNDERLYING DOCUMENT -- WHICH IS STORED IN A UNIFIED FORMAT REGARDLESS OF INITIAL FILE TYPE.

  5. 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
  • Browsers
  • 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.
