Upcoming conference will discuss the importance of going digital

Some would argue that any company that uses the internet to conduct business has already taken the first step toward adopting cloud computing platforms. But, what is the next step in adopting a truly paperless office?

These processes will be revealed at the three-day-long Association of Information Image Management (AIIM) conference, which will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana in March 2013. It is geared toward information professionals and for "those who are ready to think strategically about information management on a massive scale; to embrace the stewardship, optimization, and application of their enterprise information assets," according to the conference website.

The three-day conference will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana in March of next year and is geared for information professionals and for "those who are ready to think strategically about information management on a massive scale, to embrace the stewardship, optimization, and application of their enterprise information assets," according to the conference website.

The conference will feature six goals, including how to "digitize processes to drive paper out of processes and automate process flows." In particular, for digitizing processes, many companies can use document scanning companies and data processing services to achieve this goal.

Sessions will also include "The Mobility of a Paperless Office," discussing how efficiency and productivity can increase in offices that do not use paper, and "The Multi-Source Input Challenge," which will argue the importance of moving many paper documents to electronic formats. For both of these goals, document scanning services can help companies make the move more seamlessly, whether moving to an all-digital paperless office or converting many different types of format types into digital records.

Other sessions, such as "Document Capture to Insight with Data Analytics" will discuss the changing document capture model and the role of document capture in businesses.

Speakers at the conference include New York Times technology columnist David Pogue and the author of OccupyIT Manifest and President of AIIM, John Mancini, among others.

The conference is especially geared toward information professionals interested in moving to the digital sphere, with discussions about digital hoarding, wet signatures and cloud data. For many businesses, the move can be daunting, especially trying to keep up with the creation of new digital forms. With bulk scanning services, however, managing records is much more doable.
