Wrapping up the 2015 Conference

Ted Friedman
Ted Friedman

VP & Distinguished Analyst and Conference Chair, Gartner

As business in every industry transition to a digital future, information and its value to the business outcomes takes on a new, more important role: the driver of innovation, effectiveness and efficiency, as well as risk management. The opportunities are significant, but the challenges are real–requiring organizations to adopt new strategies, programs, roles, and technologies that will establish clear alignment of IT to business goals.
At our 2015 event, we invited you to explore with us a pragmatic "enterprise view" of information management (IM). With analyst-driven content focused on today's most important IM technology and business topics, the Summit will help organizations create a business-relevant EIM and foundational MDM strategy and infrastructure designed to drive new high levels of innovation and efficiency.
