Work is better – and smarter – when you liven it up at #CommunityLIVE

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘work smarter, not harder.’ But in some cases it really means:

Get smarter, so your work will be more satisfying.

Or even, get smarter so your work is not harder.

In the technology industry, both of these statements ring true – and with every passing week there is a new development in content services worth exploring. Here at Hyland, we are always researching and learning better ways to improve work processes.

Whether it is a new feature that end users will love – like mobile workflows that allow key approvals on-the-go, or back-end advancements like automated document classification that power your data-driven solutions for faster delivery — the information management landscape is on the move.

And we all need to keep pace with advancements.

Wouldn’t it be nice …

In countless conversations with customers at CommunityLIVE conferences and in case study calls, I’ve heard again and again how great it would be if they could only focus on new solution development.

I wish I could help, because it’s actually fun, and really satisfying to create solutions that make people’s lives easier.

But the reality is, this is only a small part of the picture. Hyland experts are also consumed with maintaining the solutions we already have in place, including:

  • Ensuring user challenges are addressed and that solutions are performing optimally
  • Staying on top of evolving security and regulatory requirements
  • Easing complex, time-sensitive procedures like audits or agenda management

We are focused on making sure that the Hyland ecosystem is taking care of business. And it consumes a lot of our time.

That’s why attending CommunityLIVE is so important. Taking advantage of the knowledge transfer face-to-face means you don’t have to sacrifice innovation for stability in your solutions.

Jump start your learning and capabilities in a few days at CommunityLIVE

This is why the CommunityLIVE conference is so fantastic. It is the opportunity for those designing, developing, maintaining or overseeing Hyland solutions to not only learn about the exact specialty you are interested in, but to have immersive conversations with experts and peers who have already built the solutions you are beginning to leverage.

And if you don’t know the next best step to take? You are not alone.

This year, we’ve designed an entire agenda around assessments — and how understanding where you are in content services delivery is the strategic next step to getting where you want to be. There are several different types of assessments that focus on different areas of your content services landscape.

You’ll be able to learn about:

  • Information Assessments

This is a comprehensive study of processes, departments, users and solutions across your organization, or key areas of it. The assessments illuminate the current state of your digital transformation readiness, ensuring processes and technologies align with your organization’s vision.

They also yield a one to three-year roadmap to meet digital transformation goals.

  • Health Checks

Health Checks are a quick, low-cost way for you to assess specific solution configurations, or database configurations and underlying architecture. Their focus is to optimize the current environment, ensuring solutions meet the unique needs of your organization.

  • Strategic Workshops

Strategic Workshops provide tools and guidance to help you identify the best next steps for solutions in specific areas of your organization.

They’re especially useful for organizations just completing mergers or acquisitions. Or those looking for guidance on how to prioritize projects. Or where to begin.

  • Technical Assessments

This type of assessment is an in-depth technical analysis of your environment to ensure high performance, scalability and enduring reliability of your solutions.

CommunityLIVE is not all about technology

Coming to this conference and attending the sessions that will help you to further your unique content services goals is truly a way to work smarter — not harder.

But it’s not all about technology. There is something welcoming about seeing the Hyland friends and trainers you’ve worked with to implement your solutions, or swapping inspirational stories with other industry leaders.

One afternoon last year — out of the thousands of people at the conference and the many pathways to traverse — I ran into Jodi Lee from Civista Bank in a random hallway of the resort and convention center. Delighted to run into each other, it was great to catch up as we had not chatted since I spent an entire day with her diverse team learning all about their transformational Information Assessment experience.

Little encounters like this happen all the time, and make the conference feel like home.

At CommunityLIVE, this meeting of the minds awakens possibilities you may not have considered. And seeing new Hyland capabilities through a different lens enables you to understand immediately the benefits for your organization and the people you serve.

Faster than any research we might conduct from a computer.

Hope to see you in Cleveland this September at CommunityLIVE!
