Metro MD ARMA Chapter September Meeting
Wednesday, September 14, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
Observations on Records Management 2.0
Time: Networking – 6:00 PM, Dinner – 6:30 PM, Presentation – 7:30 PM
Location: Far East Restaurant, 5055 Nicholson Lane, Rockville, MD 20852, 301-881-5552
Program: The rapid evolution of collaboration and cloud technologies is creating new opportunities to quickly and cost-effectively deploy records management across entire organizations. However, this change may come at the cost of traditional records management solutions. How will the entries of companies like Microsoft and Google into the Enterprise Content Management and Records Management arenas change the status quo? What are their Records Management strategies? Are they solving old problems or just creating new ones?
Speaker: Paul Giles is the Federal Director of GimmalSoft. He has worked in the ECM/RM community for more than ten years and has implemented dozens of COTS-based solutions for clients such as the US Department of Transportation (FAA, MARAD), US Department of the Treasury (US Mint, IRS & OCC), US Department of Defense (DISA), and the Government Printing Office (GPO). He has a M.S. in the Management of Information Technology from the University of Virginia, and a B.A. in History from Washington & Lee University.
Menu: Dinner is buffet style with Chicken Lettuce Wrap, Spring Roll, Shrimp Toast, Sesame Jumbo Shrimp, Asparagus Chicken, Hunan Beef, String Bean Szechuan, and Vegetable Delight. Cash Bar will be available.
