4 sessions to transform your business for long-term success at AIIM17

“When you’re finished changing, you’re finished,” Benjamin Franklin said.

Franklin was legendary for pushing boundaries and making discoveries out of the everyday. He took what he had on hand — like a key, a kite and some string — and changed everything.

Today’s businesses can do the same. In fact, they can and must continually transform themselves in order to be competitive and thrive in their marketplace – leveraging the tools and technology available to them. Driving this point home, only a third of excellent companies remain excellent for the long-term, according to a McKinsey study on transforming organizational performance.

Although undertaking self-transformation doesn’t guarantee success, it’s the path that leads to decades of longevity and growth. Exploring information management technology is a crucial element of transforming your business for long-term success.

While it’s unlikely that Franklin ever traveled to the Sunshine State, this year, hundreds of informational management professionals will gather in Orlando for the annual AIIM17 conference. Many Hylanders are heading to the conference and we can’t wait to connect with you.

This year, we’re especially excited to talk about transforming your business through the people, processes and content you have in place — and how strategic technology investments can help support this transformation.

We are looking forward to meeting you at our booth, on the conference floor or at one of our following events:

1. Town Hall: Project Success Factors – Empowerment

Date: Tuesday, 3/14

Time: 4:30 – 5:15 p.m.

Location: Grand Ballroom

You can view, measure and value project success in many ways. Join Ed McQuiston, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at Hyland and AIIM board member, along with other industry thought leaders at a session that focuses on stakeholder empowerment; engaging the right people to drive the project forward.

Hear from leading solution providers as they share examples of empowerment within customer organizations like a government transport agency, a multi-national healthcare provider and an investor communications/securities processing firm. Then, share your own views on empowerment.

How important is empowerment to your organization? Can you measure it? What role can suppliers play in building your ideal project team?

2. Digital Transformation – Your Content in Disguise?

Date: Wednesday, 3/15

Time: 11:40 – 12:25 p.m.

Location: Grand Cypress Ballroom

Organizations have been digitizing content for years, so what’s with all the current buzz around the term digital transformation?

Join Glenn Gibson, director of Product & Solution Marketing, to discuss why digital information is not the same as digital transformation. He’ll discuss practical steps towards digital transformation to take back to your own organization and the role that content plays in this journey. You will learn:

  • The difference between digital information and digital transformation – and how you can gain value from both
  • How to transform content into insight
  • The promise of true digital transformation

3. Roundtable E: Is Digital Transformation a Fantasy or Reality?

Date: Wednesday, 3/15

Time: 1:30 – 2:15 p.m.

Location: Magnolia A

IT leaders are talking about digital transformation, but is it actually happening? What does digital transformation mean to your organization?

Join this roundtable discussion, led by Gibson, to learn what digital transformation means to your peers and share your organization’s digital transformation journey.

4. Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Enterprise Solutions?

Date: Thursday, 3/16

Time: 11:40 – 12:25 p.m.

Location: Grand Cypress Ballroom

Join Dean Johnson, the OnBase manager at Discovery Benefits, as he explores best practices on how to leverage your systems, content and information to their full potential enterprise-wide. Learn how Discovery Benefits utilizes enterprise content management (ECM) solutions to achieve extraordinary growth.

By leveraging a single ECM platform as the central nervous system of its business operations, Discovery has grown from providing benefits for 1.25 million people to more than 5 million people while saving over $500,000 a year in paper costs alone.

If you’re also Orlando-bound next week, we hope to see you at one of our sessions! Please swing by booth 19 to talk transformation. There’s also an opportunity to win a pair of Bose headphones, an Apple Watch or an Amazon Echo. Ben Franklin could harness electricity with less!
