The Gist of IJIS

Like all industries, the court space is no stranger to organizations marked by confusing acronyms that most people don’t recognize or are even sure how to pronounce. Because so many readers found nuggets (or should we say “cookies”) of wisdom from our “C is for CJIS” deconstruction, we thought we would spell out another version of letter soup that, while not widely understood, is vital to the health and integrity of justice and court collaboration. “I JIS” Don’t Get It But did you get that? Our dry humor, that is. Anyways, back to the letter of the day. Founded as ...

Authored by Carolyn Kane, Product Evangelist at Hyland Imagine designing a super-highway that moves vehicles at top speed through rough terrain, eliminates bottlenecks and traffic jams, and improves the day-to-day efficiency of residents and businesses. Now imagine that you designed this super-speed highway, but you didn’t include a way for people to access it. Your highway might be fast and efficient, but many travelers have to go around it in order to get to their destination. In my industry, we call this a workaround. This frequently happens to processes that still rely on paper forms or an unintegrated electronic form ...
