Session 01: Major Changes Are Ahead for IG. What Are They? What Will Be Their Impact?

In this opening panel discussion, experts, all experienced in information management thought leadership, look to the future discussing “what’s next” in the world of information.

Hear what experts believe you should know and will really matter, not just in 2016, but going forward in the coming years:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Privacy
  • Machine Learning
  • Data Lakes
  • 3D Printing
  • Autonomous Agents
  • Self-Driving Cars
  • The Internet of Things
  • The Singularity

These are just a few of the emerging issues in the news and being talked about… and bringing so many of us to wonder how they will affect our organizations/companies… and our information management efforts.

As information professionals we are constantly “bombarded” with the latest technologies and business trends that we “absolutely must consider in our planning” going forward.

This is a unique opportunity for us to learn today what experts believe is coming tomorrow, in the near future, out a ways, or way out.

Do any of these topics/issues/trends really matter to us?

If so, which ones, in what way, and when?

The goal of this opening session is to cut through the hype and think strategically about where your organization should focus its attention and resources.

In this fast-paced session, Barclay T. Blair and a panel of experts will address trends and cutting-edge issues you should be paying attention to… and how they will affect your efforts, both negatively and positively, to take control of your organization’s information assets.

Speakers: Barclay T. Blair, Kon Leong, Stephen Ludlow, James Watson, PhD
