Newcomers to ECM boost AIIM Roadshow attendance by 35% Thursday 22 May 2008 PDF Print New interest in project team collaboration with controlled document sharing has boosted visitor numbers at the AIIM Enterprise Content Management (ECM) roadshow event held at the beginning of May. Over 1,500 visitors attended the event across five city venues, up by 35% compared with 2007. According to Doug Miles, Managing Director of Roadshow organisers AIIM, “We’ve had a tremendous event this year with very high attendance. The arrival of Microsoft’s SharePoint application has generated renewed interest in collaborative document sharing with colleagues, partners and customers. The latest ECM suites make this much easier to set up and manage, but this brings with it policy issues of control, compliance and archive management. Many of our new delegates were IT people struggling to understand these issues before rolling out collaboration platforms enterprise-wide.” In his Keynote presentation, AIIM President John Mancini referred to “Digital Landfill” as the most appropriate description of the collection of file shares, image file systems and email archives that exist in most businesses. Organising this information for both control and ‘findability’ is a crucial starting point for any knowledge-sharing improvement project. Next year’s AIIM Roadshow will visit Edinburgh, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol and London from June 1st to June 5th 2009. - end - AIIM is the international association for Enterprise Content Management.
