Transforming document and content management processes can be a daunting prospect for any organisation
The speed at which business information is being exchanged across an expanding range of platforms such as mobile, cloud and multiple social media channels, is showing no sign of slowing down, which means that standing still is no longer an option.
This year’s AIIM Forum UK which takes place on June 24 at the ILEC in London, is designed to provide businesses with the independent advice, best practice and thought leadership they need to tackle this increasingly fragmented information landscape.
With the UK’s economic recovery still on track, many organisations are taking the opportunity to review their core processes and systems in order to leverage their information assets more effectively. Recent research showed that over 85% of users are planning fresh investment over the next two years and over a third have already increased budgets in this critical area.
The day will provide fresh insights from inspirational information leaders including John Mancini and Doug Miles from AIIM (The Global Community of Information Professionals), Myron Hrycyk, CIO of Severn Trent Water and many more of the industry’s most innovative thinkers.
The key objective of the day is to help delegates to understand the extended benefits of more efficient information processes - enabling their organisations to increase collaboration, improve compliance, identify appropriate technology solutions and build sustainable growth.
John Mancini, President of AIIM, will provide a unique perspective on the current challenges and opportunities on both sides of the Atlantic. In his opening keynote, ‘Managing the Information Chaos’, he will discuss some significant shifts in the volume, variety and velocity of business information and outline key strategies for dealing with digital disruption and transformation.
Doug Miles will use current feedback from the AIIM community to examine the status quo, the key issues and the lessons being learned. He will set pointers and recommendations for how to best exploit and optimise investment in ECM and SharePoint, including process optimisation, enterprise integration, automated classification, mobile collaboration, cloud strategies and data privacy.
Faced with this myriad of information challenges, it is even more vital to learn from pioneering end-users such as Myron Hrycyk, CIO of Severn Trent Water, who will provide some real-world insights into the organisation’s significant achievements over the past five years.
When Hrycyk joined the business, it had recently suffered a major compliance breach, for which it had been heavily fined by the industry regulators. As part of the senior leadership team, he has played a key role in a reorganisation programme that has transformed customer engagement through better information flows and internal teamwork. Hrycyk will draw on the challenges that he and his 330-strong team have encountered during the move from a very basic IT outlook, to one of hyper-mobility, enabling staff to work seamlessly from almost any location.
The AIIM Forum UK is free of charge for all business executives working in information, finance, compliance and IT management.
