Enterprise Content Management—Are We Ready to Break the Code?

Bob Woods, Chairman of the Industry Advisory Council and President of Topside Consulting Group, will speak at the NCC AIIM June Social.

From the announcement:

While the events of September 11, 2001 highlighted the poor use of disparate data bases and data itself, it was by no means confined to law enforcement and terrorist tracking.  Consider that although FAA collects a vast amount of data on every aircraft flying in its system, it could not find the missing aircraft in its system on September 11.  Additionally supervisors there still do many of their operational counts by counting paper flight strips even though computers record aircraft positions every 6 seconds.  

Software developments in recent years promise to make these kinds of problems and others easier to solve.    Bob Woods’ discussion will revolve around how to get useful information from the mountains of data we work with every day.  Are we ready to break the code?

PLACE:   The International Spy Museum, 800 F Street, NW Washington DC, 20004
