AIIM’s take on information management and the mobile social enterprise

John Mancini, president of AIIM (Association of Information and Image Management) opened the AIIM Conference 2012 with a keynote titled, I'm Sitting in My Starbucks Office with My PC, My Android Tablet, and My iPhone. Now What? His answer is that organizations need to do a better job capturing the interest of increasingly mobile workers as well as their customers so they are compelled to use new enterprise collaboration media and tools and technologies. As a result, the workforce becomes more effective, customers interact more with organizations and the enterprise improves its bottom line.

“Social, local and mobile technologies are shifting information management and driving organizations to create new systems of engagement,” Mancini said during his address. “My belief is that employee and customer engagement are key to leveraging technology.” That, in turn, he told the 670 attendees of the conference, leads to business success. Mancini opened a two-and-a-half day conference that featured keynotes and breakout sessions surrounding the theme of information management and enterprise content management facilitated by social media and mobile technologies.

This is something that we’ve started learning from our “millennial” employees several years ago. They started by helping to introduce the need for a more social and mobile-oriented workplace. Adoption of this attitude has helped my team work more efficiently, both in and out of the office as we’ve moved towards solutions that offer more alternatives for communication and collaboration, and are more accessible from phones, tablets, and other mobile devices, and not just from the desktop.
