About the 2007-2008 Seminar Series

In dozens of informal conversations with participants of prior AIIM seminars, we have heard many organizations, public and private, are considering either beginning an ECM effort from scratch or refreshing the technology for an effort already underway. A common question in these conversations is: “we’re not going to build this ourselves, so how do we do a good job of managing the acquisition and implementation of something this complex?”

Your local AIIM Chapter board has put together a series of seminars to address just this set of topics, from the initial RFP issuance, through award and implementation. This process includes a Technology Trends seminar by Gartner Group to let RFP teams know what is in the market today and what to expect in the near future.

The implementation phase includes policy topics, such as record retention and taxonomy, as well as technology topics on what to look for in archive-quality media, and the all-important change management phase, or bringing staff and customers alike safely and effectively into the brave new world you are creating.

All of the sessions are run by practicing professionals who are and have been deep in the middle of each of the topics presented. No theory here; just practical experience.
