The three forces of consumerisation, cloud / mobile and the Internet of Things have been playing havoc with traditional information systems

European information management professionals gather to hear from an impressive line-up of thought leaders

June 08, 2016 – The changing role of the information professional and how organisations gain competitive edge from information, will be key themes at the upcoming AIIM Forum UK, which takes place on 22 June 2016 in London.
