A new event designed to help organisations manage data more efficiently has been launched today by the organisers of the Online Information and Content Management Europe (CME) exhibitions and conference. Enterprise Document & Records Management Europe (EDRM Europe), will run alongside the 2004 events from the 30 November
EDRM Europe will demonstrate the solutions that provide organisations with better control over their information, regulatory compliance, cost savings through more efficient processing, extended access to corporate knowledge and robust management of corporate data.
This extension of the Online Information portfolio by VNU Exhibitions Europe has been introduced in direct response to visitor research highlighting a significant interest in the area. Of the 11,000 visitors to Online Information 2003, 4,400 (40%) expressed specific content management needs, 3,000 (27%) stated specific interest in document management systems and 1,900 (17%) wanted to meet providers of information retrieval solutions.
"The success of Content Management Europe in 2003 highlighted how important it is for organisations to manage, integrate, store and search information efficiently" comments Victoria Bush, Event Director at organiser VNU Exhibitions Europe. "EDRM Europe addresses a specific, but increasingly important need. Our visitors need solutions to help them manage the increasing volume and complexity of documents and records within their organisations EDRM Europe is a dedicated platform to bring those solutions to them."
