IRIS Symposium ’17

A conference on Information Management and Digital Transformation

These are the times of Internet of Things and Big Data, times where information has become a valuable currency. Acquiring data, distilling knowledge from it and managing the flows of information within the corporate environment creates the competitive advantage that makes all the difference. Your customers’ expectations have evolved along the line: your business is now driven by superfast decisions, zero-latency response times and ultra-short go-to-market plans. In addition, there’s the complexity of legislation with concepts like GDPR and other compliancy rules that you need to take into account.

In order to keep up – even stay ahead of the pack – you can’t afford not to be in full control of your information environment. But how do you get in control? Starting up a digital transformation process is considered as the best way forward, but then how can you make sure you approach it the right way?

This year’s IRIS Symposium is about ‘Connecting Digital Experts’, where we bring together business experts, technological gurus and partners/customers.

During this seminar, you will find out where the general market is going, what the vision of Canon and IRIS is on Information Management and you get to meet both partners and end customers with hands on experience

Don’t miss out on this key event, register now and learn through our experts presentations, round tables and open conversations about the possibilities that Information Management(IM) brings to your organization. Find out all you need to know about the rules and regulations on IM and hear about real business situations.

We’re looking forward to meeting you there

Networking Lunch


Jones Lukose
Information Management Officer at International Criminal Court
Born in the digital age the International Criminal Court has adopted an eCourt strategy covering all aspects of its operations. And to solve the accountability challenge its records and document management functions are redefined towards information orchestration and less towards traditional preservation.

Jones will elaborate on the Court’s digital journey towards an efficient Information Management strategy highlighting the challenges, steps taken and technologies implemented.



GDPR is coming,
your first steps towards compliancy

In less than 8 months the General Data Protection Regulation takes effect. An information management strategy built on Records Management and Automatic Detection & Classification of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) provides a huge boost to automating compliant processes.

The cloud,
not the end of the journey.

Where are we with the cloud? Or in other words what is the state of the cloud and what are the trends. How do these trends influence your existing infrastructure and how IRIS can help you with your journey.





Agile digital transformation powered
by case management.

Organisations seek for solutions that increase their speed of transformation while maintaining stability and control. Process focus and adaptive case management platforms enable organisations to better face this agility challenge.

Back-up or get Bankrupt
while trying?

Recent news flashes about hacking, virus attacks, malware and even natural disasters proof the need for back-up. It’s simply key in assuring your business continuity.



Artificial Intelligence:
Not Science-Fiction anymore.

The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. Understand and analyze data faster than ever, turning content into trends, patterns and decisions. Better leverage information and meaning for customer engagement and powerful search.

How to turn your IT
into a Business Enabler?

Thinking about IT as an enabler to drive revenue rather than just to cost money? Benefit or IRIS’ Managed Services so you can focus on your actual business instead of continuously having to cope with IT challenges.
