ECM LEADER FORUM

Panelists:  Leaders from Microsoft: Tayyab Ali, Box:  Jessican Fain, Alfresco: Faron Lyons, NetDocs: John Martucci, OpenText:  David Horwatt

This panel discussion will cover strategies highlighting engagement, open source, and traditional solutions. Where do they overlap? What are their unique value propositions?

Each panelist will present a high-level overview of the solutions offered and share their strategy moving forward in terms of adding value to constituent organizations. The moderator will explore areas such as collaboration (internal and external), security, user adoption, integration, process automation, and lifecycle management. Many organizations have all of these tools or a mix of similar solutions. How can it all be tied together to make our lives as data stewards easier?

LEVERAGING TRADITIONAL RIM PRACTICES IN VENDOR IMPLEMENTATION OR SELECTION

Presenter:  Helen Streck, Kaizen InfoSource

When an organization is going to implement or upgrade to a new system for managing information, they often ask, what do we need in the new system? What data should be migrated from the old system or locations? What rules do we need to manage the data in the new system? Where do the traditional components of a Records and Information Management program fit?

This session will discuss how to build Records Management and Information Governance components that can be leveraged in deciding which vendor best fits your organizational vision and needs, and influences the design and configuration of the system selected. Knowing you need those traditional components, as well as the skills that are required to develop them, are critical before selection and/or implementation activities begin.

12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

MAKING INFORMATION ACCESSIBLE:  The New Model for Records Management

Presenter:  Kurt Thies, Vice President, Technology & Strategy, TAB

This session will focus on the long-standing question of whether paper records can finally be destroyed after being imaged. Indeed there have been strides in the legal space that speak to this issue, and best practices have also evolved. Based on his acclaimed presentation at MER 2016, Mr. Isaza will walk the audience through the latest development in this space, and give the audience thoughts on the following:

  •        Why do organizations still have paper records?
  •        U.S. and Global enabling regulations
  •        5 questions on legal acceptance of images
  •        Defensible paper disposition strategies

 2:30 – 3:45 pm

Moderator:Bryn Bowen, Director of Information Services, Schulte, Roth, & Zabel LLP

Panelists:   Edgar McDaniel, Regional RIM Director,  Sidley & Austin, Diane Gates, Global Records Managers, Latham & Watkins, Nancy Beauchemin, Owner, InOutSource

Ensuring that your IG program is successful depends on executing inexpensive impact projects that have manageable lifecycles. Getting there is simpler if existing resources can be used creatively to support the efforts. Identifying and leveraging these technologies, processes, and people embodies the spirit of true governance, and our interactive panel will explore and share some ways to do that.
