Free AIIM Boot Camp Offers Content Management Strategies for the Social, Mobile and Cloud Era

Five-Hour Course to Inspire IT Professionals, Information Strategists and Process Owners With New Approaches, Best Practices and Success Stories

SILVER SPRING, MD--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - AIIM, the global community of information professionals, today announced its Boot Camp seminar series, "5 Steps to Victory over Manual Processes," will be held in seven cities -- Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York, Toronto, Washington, D.C., and Minnetonka, Minn. -- from October 2 to October 25. The free one-day event explores how mobile devices, social technology, cloud computing and Big Data are changing document-centric business processes and addresses strategic skill development needed to lead innovation, derive business value and successfully manage change.

Recent research indicates that the social, mobile and cloud era is good for business. The "Process Revolution -- moving your business from paper to PCs to tablets" report shows most organizations recognize mobility is good for business, especially in the area of customer communication. Another study, "The Paper Free Office -- dream or reality," indicates significant responsiveness and productivity gains in customer service are realized when paper-based bottlenecks are eliminated from business processes.

"Mobile devices along with cloud computing and social technology have transformed user behavior and are now revolutionizing business," said AIIM President John Mancini. "Emerging new business models require information professionals with evolved skills, including subject matter expertise, business savvy and technology skills, to help enact change. AIIM Boot Camps are designed to equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to make this happen."

Each one-day in-person educational event will feature best practices, interactive discussions and case studies that address the influence information management is having on business and the newly specialized roles of information professionals. Content is appropriate for both seasoned and new managers seeking to improve business processes with digitization, drive paper bottlenecks out of customer engagement and automate the workplace.

"AIIM education and training has been an integral part of implementing a successful solution in both Dallas and Hill County since we first started the ECM project in the Dallas County District Clerks Office," said Sharon Camarillo, Hill County IT Director. "I would encourage anyone looking for the most up-to-date business practices to attend AIIM seminars."
