Back to the Future?
The 2009 Conference title, “Back to the Future?” reflects the current challenges faced by our delegates, their organisations and the Records Management profession itself.
Security, integrity, accessibility … few deny these fundamental principles of good records and information management, but can we continue to rely on our traditional approaches, skills set and mind set in a world that is so changed from the one in which these traditions were established?
Our conference will provide a platform for members of the RMS and the wider IM practitioner and supplier community to come together to address this fundamental question and the challenges that have prompted it, within the framework of the four key themes.
Conference Sessions already confirmed in this Theme
- Michael Moss, HATII, University of Glasgow
An open ground debate that will discuss the future direction of the records management profession and place in society. Open ground debates were pioneered by the internationally respected Common Purpose http://www.commonpurpose.org.uk/home.aspx, as a way of engaging participants in an entirely non-confrontational or didactic fashion in the resolution of complex questions
- Simon Ellis, BOX-IT
- Helen Donato, Stortext Document Solutions
One of the biggest barriers to progress with enhancing the user experience and ensuring records management is seen as a positive and essential part of the organisation is the potentially huge cost of migration of legacy archives to the new shiny platform.
