About the Conference

Information#Transformation: managing information to deliver business change (I#T2015) is a one day conference being hosted by IRMS Scotland in conjunction with Perth & Kinross Council.

This is the first event of the IRMS Scotland 2015-16 programme as we build up to the 400 attendee 2017 IRMS Annual Conference which is to be held in Glasgow in May 2017.

I#T2015 acknowledges the challenges of delivering business change in the real world of the Scottish public sector – a world of increasing demand, decreasing resources and ever higher expectations.

I#T2015 brings together the people driving transformation across Scotland’s local authorities and information and records management professionals with a proven track record in delivering effective business change across all sectors 

IRMS Conference

The invited delegate list comprises Senior Executives and the Lead Officers for Transformation from the 32 Scottish Councils; representatives of Scottish Government Agencies involved in transformation initiatives; key transformation personnel from Perth & Kinross Council and representatives of Council service delivery partners.

They will be joined by the cream of the information management profession in Scotland, business change speakers of international standing and a number of leading sector suppliers from both Scotland and the wider UK.

The purpose of I#T2015 is to bring all the above groups together to share knowledge and experience, explore information within the context of contemporary business practice and demonstrate how the effective management and use of information as a business asset can support business transformation.

The day will be a mix of high-powered and imaginative keynote addresses, themed lightning talks, real-life business scenario group workshop and a Q&A expert panel session - all designed to both inform and inspire as well as offering incomparable networking, discussion and relationship-building opportunities for all involved!
