Upcoming Webinars

Feb 18, 2015

Although digital transformation ranks high on the corporate agenda of many organizations, the reality is that many businesses still have a lot to digitize. Paper is a good place to start thinking about digital transformation, because it is the Achilles heel of most organizations. And yet, lack of management initiatives and the (perceived) need for physical signatures are given as the top reasons why there is still so much paper in business processes.

It doesn't have to be that way!

Digital signature technology is mature, enabling organizations to digitally sign and authenticate documents, files, and forms with iron-clad protection against forgery. These solutions support multiple signers across geographic and application boundaries. So what's holding you back from making enterprise-wide digital signatures a priority in your organization?

In this webinar, we’ll tell you all you need to know about digital signatures. We’ll show you how they work, why they work, and how easily they work. We’ll highlight the security features, admissibility and legality concerns. We’ll also give you tips on how you can make the business case to your co-workers and supervisors for getting this important project recognized and on the fast-track. Learn how digital signatures can be a quick win with a quick ROI, and your most successful implementation project.

The SharePoint landscape is changing as Microsoft “adjusts” the roadmap. Are you struggling to catch up or pushing ahead? Is your SharePoint the hub of content collaboration, the all-encompassing ECM system, or simply a communal place to file and access documents? Are you customizing, pulling in best-of-breed add-ons and connecting to other systems, or simply running it out-of-the-box?

In this webinar, AIIM President John Mancini will update you on the latest AIIM research conducted in early 2015. He’ll examine the trends we’ve been seeing over the years and will distill what you need to know to benchmark yourself against this extensive research.

Questions being asked in the research survey include:

  • How would you describe the progress of your SharePoint deployment?
  • What ongoing issues do you have, and what functionality is as yet unfulfilled?
  • How well integrated is SharePoint into your other enterprise systems, and how well aligned is it with your IG policies?
  • How are you dealing with the provision of external collaboration and mobile content access?
  • What strategies are you adopting to reinforce SharePoint’s scope and position in the business, or to consider alternatives?

Some of your organizational information is difficult to access by traditional software applications (and even humans) because it lacks structure and may exist in a variety of non-traditional forms -- like handwritten comments, signatures, logos, or even concepts implied within text. Just like “big data,” this information is produced, collected, and stored at exponentially faster rates and in greater volume each year, and these potential gems become locked in the documents that contain them. Extracting value from this hidden information provides a real competitive edge. As a result, organizations are aggressively looking for ways to find it, capture it, analyze it, and put it to use.

That sounds like looking for a needle in a haystack, right?

Maybe not. In this webinar, we’ll show you:

  • How to assess what information you truly have available to you
  • Tips on how to eliminate the chaff (the ROT – redundant, obsolete, and trivial) from the wheat
  • How to put that useful information to work so its value can increase throughout its lifecycle
  • How your Information Governance plans and strategies can assist you in every step of this process
  • And how to make it all scale so that it is manageable!

We’ll also share some use cases showing you just how others have succeeded in these efforts.

Your business processes run on information. In some instances, the information required to complete those processes or resolve a case is obvious and well structured. In other instances, much of the information to be applied is unstructured, buried within word documents, spread sheets, emails, etc. That hidden information could mean the difference between making the right decision and ruining a customer relationship, or worse.

Whether managing customer service, investigating an incident or tracking a project, you need to be able to quickly collect, organize and access information found in structured and unstructured form. You also need to collaborate with different role players and knowledge workers on your team. This means that the right information must be provided to the right people, at the right time, accurately and in a consumable and seamless fashion.

That sounds like ECM nirvana!

Actually, that’s what Case Management is all about. And, even if you’ve never referred to it by that name, chances are you’re practicing it in some form. In this webinar, we’ll dispel the myths and confusion around the term. We’ll explain how new case management applications and tools can help your knowledge and process workers obtain better business outcomes by:

  • Managing cases and closed-loop processes from anywhere
  • Identifying patterns and key data hidden within in-bound content
  • Maintaining up to date information and tracking
  • Moving forward from initiation to completion
