What is the first thing you think of when you hear New Orleans? I know I don’t think about enterprise content management (ECM).
But two weeks ago, AIIM held their annual conference in New Orleans and Alfresco was proud to be a platinum sponsor of the event. The event brought together ECM, records management and web content management idea seekers from across the globe.
Walking through the exhibit floor you could hear attendees conversing on a variety of topics about why information governance is still essential in today’s business to why the future of enterprise content is gaining secure access inside and outside the firewall.
What I loved about this conference is that AIIM set-up interactive sessions where attendees heard from thought-leaders on a variety of subjects. Our very own John Newton, who is also AIIM’s Chairman of the Board, talked about how cloud connected content is changing the way organizations create, share and manage files– in short, how your business works. He discussed how keeping files synced inside and outside the firewall, is changing the way business work and manage/access their content.
While it was great to hear John talk about ECM and the future of ECM, I think the best part of the conference was listening to LexisNexis talk about their Alfresco implementation. I always love listening to how our customers react to our software and the cool things they do with it. LexisNexis connects the dots between millions of public records and transactions, resulting in actionable information their customer can then use to advance their goals. LexisNexis considered using Alfresco because of our open source, reliable, mobile functionality as well as our easy adaptation for the end user. So far, in just a short two years, they have eight million documents stored using 4 TB of data and migrated four millions documents from their legacy document management system into Alfresco.
All in all, AIIM gave us a great platform to be able to showcase our platform including hybrid, business process automation with Workdesk and records ranagement components. The attendees responded to the great strides we are making to make our software the premier ECM solution as well as learned how to manage their information better, faster and more accurately so they become more effective and efficient.
