The 58th annual installment of the ARMA Conference and Expo recently wrapped up. It’s hard to imagine not coming away with a wealth of knowledge and information– and since this year’s show was held in fabulous Las Vegas, that might be the only wealth anyone has left!
This year marked the first for Sherpa Software as an exhibitor. Our staff helped contribute to the impressive turnout of 823 exhibit personnel and 2,027 professional attendees.
The ARMA Conference and Expo is always packed with great educational content, and this year’s sessions didn’t disappoint. Most of these sessions are recorded and available at http://www.arma.org/Conference/2013/LasVegas.aspx. Each skill-level series (Core, Management, and Strategic) has at least 15 web seminars covering a wide range of topics. Many of these professional attendees stopped by the Sherpa booth for a KISS (7 oz. Hershey Chocolate variety) and to discuss their information governance needs. We collected more than 250 surveys that will help us better understand the challenges facing the Records Management community. We also exchanged insight and perspectives with Legal, RIM, IT and other compliance/governance professionals from industries including energy and utilities, government, healthcare, insurance, finance and legal.
As first time participants, we were very happy with our ARMA Conference and Expo experience and are very excited about next year’s event scheduled for San Diego, California. Thanks to all the ARMA personnel and staff for organizing a wonderful show, and thanks to all the attendees we had the pleasure of meeting. We welcome the opportunity to stay in touch and continue to talk about the records management and information governance landscape. Feel free to reach out to us on social media or via our web site at sherpasoftware.com. And remember, Keep It Sherpa Simple!

Last week, 40 participants joined Mikki Tomlinson, eDJ expert, and three corporate panelists for the webinar on Mastering the Balancing Act. The panel of experts included Maryanne Siek, director of records and information management at Freeport McMoran Copper & Gold; Kathie Slotter, manager, litigation support at Southwestern Energy; and Garland Mitchell, senior manager of technology at Southwest Airlines.
One of the greatest challenges of implementing and maintaining legal hold and discovery response processes in a corporate environment is balancing those requirements with the needs and goals of the rest of the company. Most importantly – the business itself. There are other stakeholders that support the business as well, including IT, compliance and records.
For companies that find themselves in litigation on a regular basis, eDiscovery is not going away. It is becoming more and more complex as a constant stream of new technologies are introduced into the corporate environment. Corporate legal departments must now have increased insight and their organization’s information management and IT ecosystem.
This webinar explored issues and techniques to carry out legal hold and discovery response requirements within the complex corporate structure. The discussion included:
• Identifying the key stakeholders and their objectives
• Plotting a roadmap to understanding the IT infrastructure
• Right-sizing eDiscovery processes
Visit this archived webinar here to learn about all of the above, as well as the importance of thwarting internal contention through cooperation.
