The combined impact of consumerisation, cloud / mobile and the Internet of Things is ushering in a new era of information management

Information professionals across Europe to hear thought leaders including AIIM’s John Mancini and Severn Trent PLC’s Group CIO

Silver Spring, Md., May 11, 2015 – The AIIM Forum UK, which takes place on 24 June 2015 in London, will see an impressive line-up of speakers and thought leaders gather to discuss the factors behind a new era of information management.

Keynote speakers include; John Mancini, President, AIIM; Doug Miles, Director of AIIM Market Intelligence; and Myron Hrycyk, Group CIO, Severn Trent PLC, who will be presenting on ‘Information Transformation at Severn Trent PLC’.

The AIIM Forum UK will explore the three major disruptive forces that are accelerating the pace of change: Cloud, Mobile, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Sessions and speakers throughout the day will return to this theme, providing guidance on how best to manage Enterprise Content Management (ECM) in 2015 and beyond.

“There is more content and information than ever before and enterprises are struggling to manage it effectively,” said John Mancini, AIIM President. “The combined impact of consumerisation, cloud / mobile and the Internet of Things is ushering in a new era of information management and there is a real danger that organisations are drowning in the information chaos. ECM is an industry in transition and at the AIIM Forum UK we are going to be exploring how best to approach the transition to a new era of ECM.”

There will be a number of deep dive sessions throughout the day, providing the hundreds of information and content professionals in attendance with the tools and best practice expertise to help them address the rapidly changing information management landscape.

Keynote speaker Myron Hrycyk, is Group CIO, Severn Trent PLC. He was one of the CIOs listed in the 2014 CIO 100, which recognises the leading CIOs in the UK that have a central role in modernising and driving business change in their organisations.

At the AIIM Forum UK he’ll be revealing how he and his team of 350 staff have led a number of high-impact programmes designed to transform Severn Trent PLC into the best water and waste services utility in the UK. Key innovations include the development of a cutting-edge mobility strategy and the deployment of "Lean” and "Continuous Improvement” techniques to optimise teamwork, information flows and customer service.

Bringing AIIM Forum UK to a close will be Doug Miles, Director of AIIM Market Intelligence, who will be examining the status quo, the key issues and the lessons learned, based on feedback from the AIIM user-community. He will also set pointers and recommendations for how to best exploit and optimise investment in ECM moving forward.
