Registration is now open for the 2014 e-Records Conference. Register for this year’s conference here.  Be sure to visit the conference website to read more about the exciting lineup and this year’s exhibitors.

We are pleased to announce two more sessions:

  • “Records, Records Everywhere: The Future of ERM in Government”
    Alan Webber, Research Director, IDC Government InsightsGovernment agencies, by their very nature, have traditionally kept all kinds of records. History has shown that back in the third millennium BC, bureaucrats in the Mesopotamian area of Sumer were some of the first to use the newly developed technology of writing to record laws, transactions, and economic records. And government agencies today are no different – whether it is for revenue, regulatory, licensing, or other reasons, government agencies continue to have extensive records. As the cost of digital record storage continues to decline, the amount of information swept up and kept in records by government will continue to grow as government agencies struggle to deal with current ERM issues. But where is ERM headed tomorrow? This session will focus on the factors and technologies like storage, analytics, and search that will form the foundation of ERM in the future.
  • “‘Have Fun Storming the Castle!’ The importance of records management & IT collaboration for digital preservation and the development of the Texas Digital Archive.”
    Mark Myers, Electronic Records Specialist, Texas State Library and Archives CommissionIn this presentation, TSLAC’s newly hired electronic records specialist will discuss his previous work in the development of a data archive and digital preservation program at the Kentucky state archives, and how the archives built its productive relationship with the state’s IT agency.  He will then talk about applying those skills to TSLAC’s plans for an electronic records archive starting with Governor Rick Perry’s records and working with Texas state agencies in managing and preserving their electronic records.

About e-Records 2014

It’s all about collaboration. Records Management, Information Technology, and many other players must work together to make information work for the organization. Once again, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) and the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) have joined forces to bring you a great selection of speakers sharing compelling case studies and presentations covering important electronic records topics. This year’s speakers will give you thoughtful insights and the tools you need to navigate in this collaborative world.

This one-day conference is for state agency and local government officials who are creating or managing electronic records. This educational opportunity seeks to improve electronic records management in Texas government by bringing together staff responsible for and interested in records management and information technology. It is also a great chance to network with attendees who are working on some of the same electronic records management issues you face in your office. Join 250-300 government personnel, speakers and exhibitors for this exciting day.

This high-quality, low-cost event provides education, networking, and continuing education credit for IRM education. We will apply for ICRM credit pre-approval, too.

For those of you on Twitter, use the hashtag #TXeRecords to join the conversation before, during, and after the conference.
