 The Zilker Botanical Garden Center is located in the heart of downtown Austin, inside of Zilker Park.  The actual Garden Center is just off of Barton Springs Road near the MoPac expressway. This is also just a short drive from downtown Austin and very close to many of the city’s main attractions.

                                                                                                                           Great Food, Friends, and Finds!

Along with lots of RM learning, continental breakfast, and lunch will be catered by Wild Wood Bakehouse. Wild Wood Bakehouse features gluten free foods along with vegetarian options. Additionally, snacks will be provided in between sessions to keep you going throughout the day.

With the seminar being held on a Friday and so close to the heart of downtown Austin, some of you may take the opportunity to enjoy some of what downtown Austin can offer in terms of dining, activities like the botanical gardens or other museums, or just hunker down and wait for the traffic Austin is becoming so well known for to subside before heading back home.

Speaker: Andy Bennett, Department of Information Resources, State of Texas

Synopsis: This session will provide a broad overview of cloud computing and the issues that everyone who is considering moving to it needs to consider. From infrastructure and systems management, to security and accessibility, the cloud comes with an equal dose of new challenges for every benefit it can provide. Some questions that this session will directly answer include: “What do we mean when we say ‘cloud?’” “What types of services are available in the cloud?” “What are the security concerns when considering a cloud solution?” “How do we calculate the cost and determine the benefits of moving to the cloud?”

 

Change Management - Can we talk?  How to have conversations that lead to change.

Speaker: Todd Brown – Access Sciences

Synopsis: How to inspire and manage change is a problem faced by every organization. And yet, change initiatives often fail. Studies show that 60% - 70% fail. Why is that? This session will explore what you can do to successfully enact change, how to evoke motivation to support desired changes in behavior, and introduce methodologies and tools to leverage change efforts.


 

Case Study – 7 Habits of a RIM Program: How You Can Grasp the Win!

Speaker: Dave Foley, Director, Records and Information Management, ONEOK

Synopsis: Examine a RIM / IG program strategic model from laying the foundation through maturity and improvement stages.  Then, see how one business applied the program strategy and underlying principles to clean and organize their share drives.

 

Information Governance – What is the IGBOK?

Speaker: Margaret Hermesmeyer, IGP, CRM

Synopsis: ARMA International’s new release of the Information Governance Book of Knowledge (IGBOK) provides an authoritative framework for implementing information governance.  This presentation will provide an overview of ARMA’s new resource, discussing the guidance it provides and considering a practical approach for using the IGBOK in support of the organization’s success.
