Location: Apella Events Space at Alexandria Center - 450 E 29th St


Organizations often find it challenging to make all their content readily available to the users that need it and the processes that require it, while still ensuring the documents are secure. In a digital world, users must be able to instantly access, share, and use information to increase their productivity. Content governance and security also become a large concern when documents are being shared between users inside and outside of the organization, from unknown devices. It’s more important than ever to empower users by connecting them with the right content at the right time, in the right way.

During this 1-day seminar, attendees will gain an understanding of how and why using a digital business platform that combines content, process and governance helps organizational efficiencies while lowering costs.

The Economics of Modernizing: Building the Business Use Case

We all know modern businesses move fast. One day you are on the cloud and the next you are training a robot to think for you. Mission-critical systems need to be open and agile in order to gain the full benefits of using newer technologies like the cloud, analytics and AI. Current business models do not work in this agile environment. This session will explore the new age business models and why moving to a digital business platform can be cost effective, time efficient and how to move to one central platform that provides the essential needs in terms of content, process and governance. Recommended attendee for this session include those that aspire to be early-adopters to new technologies to keep their organization innovative and fresh and understand the Alfresco Digital Business Platform. Moving to single platform - process, governance and content working together - the Power of the Platform
