ZL Technologies to Sponsor ARMA Conference and Expo 2013 in Las Vegas

Speaking Engagement and Extensive Sponsorship Underscore Continued Support of ARMA's Role as the Premier Venue for Records Management Professionals

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2013) - ZL Technologies, Inc. (ZL), the leader in unified information governance for enterprise-class organizations, will mark this year's attendance at the annual ARMA Conference and Expo with an expanded role in both show sponsorship and educational content. As a long-time attendee of ARMA events, ZL is honored to take on a substantial role in the thought-leadership material that the conference is renowned for. In addition to exclusive sponsorship of the event's welcome party, ZL will feature an educational-track presentation as well as expo floor presence at booth 519. The conference is scheduled for October 28-30, and will take place at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. 

This year's ARMA conference comes at an important crossroads for the records management field. Whereas records once comprised a relatively small proportion of all enterprise information, the paradigm has shifted in the digital age with content such as emails, corporate social media, collaboration suites, and other communications. With this transition, records managers must grapple with the responsibility of governing an expanding data universe. Compliance and eDiscovery needs, in concert with increasing pressure to use data for strategic value, demand effective management of all enterprise unstructured data, not just traditional "records."

The Big Data era demands a new approach to information governance. The stand-alone, "siloed" records management systems and ECMs currently in place in many organizations are simply not suited to scale or handle the vast array of data types currently encountered, and cause immense difficulties in search and defensibility. With the sphere of relevant records material rapidly expanding, RIM professionals need to work proactively with other stakeholders to meet shared information management needs rather than simply operating alone. The ZL Unified Archive® meets these swiftly overlapping needs by addressing the requirements of all parties: providing a single elastic platform for the management of all unstructured data for records, eDiscovery, compliance, storage, and analytics.

"Records management isn't what it used to be. Information that has traditionally fallen outside the purview of official records now holds a critical role in the enterprise, and will only continue to grow in strategic value," said Kon Leong, CEO of ZL Technologies. "The Unified Archive® has always taken an all-inclusive approach to the governance of unstructured data, and our role at this year's conference underscores the growing influence of RIM professionals and the changing nature of the data they govern."

With the aim of addressing the escalating issues of data governance, Mr. Leong will be giving a presentation for ARMA's Business Value educational track during the conference, on Tuesday October 29th, 2013 from 8 AM-9 AM in Veronese 2503.
