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
