RIMPA InForum 2018: The past, the present and the future

RIMPA InForum 2018: The past, the present and the future

From the 9th to the 12th of September, Hobart will be descended on by hundreds of records and information management professionals attending their annual 4-day convention, inForum.

It’s been 17 years since this convention, then titled Convergence 2001: Recordkeeping in a Digital Age, was last held in Hobart.

Back then, 2001 was an inauspicious one for Australia. It was the year of 9/11. The boom went bust in the dot-com business. Google was just three years old and less than half Australian adults had Internet access with only a few more of us having access to a computer at all.

How things have changed. It’s unsurprising that the digital world is once again the focus at inForum’s Records and Information Management Professionals Australasia (RIMPA) education and networking event.

As well as exhibiting at this event, Brolly will be hosting one of several presentations from local and international cutting-edge speakers, who’ll be examining the digital world from tactical, operational and strategic perspectives.

Brolly’s presentation titled, “The ugly truth about your social media engagement – archive or crash dive” will expose how social media is subjecting companies to a tsunami of digital-born data, and a minefield of legislation, rules, policies and guidelines.

Being able to quickly and efficiently sort the wheat from the chaff, to capture source records from where they were published, before and after edits, on a variety of platforms, is quickly becoming a standard expectation.

And painstakingly sifting through, and grabbing relevant screenshots no longer cuts the mustard, from either a productivity or legal perspective.

Brolly’s briefing will provide RIMPA delegates with a choice of routes available to navigate their organisation to a safe harbour, given today’s modern expectations.

Also on offer at inForum 2018 are interactive workshops facilitated by industry game-changers, information about new technologies and the opportunity to meet and speak to trade businesses working at the fore of the information industry.

See you there soon.
