iStock_000001596704Small-1As we start to think about #AIIM14, I thought I would ask a number of our sponsors a few identical questions and put them on a bit of a hot seat with regards to how they see the future -- and let attendees start thinking about your own questions to ask them in Orlando.  Here are the three questions I'll ask:

  1. What are the three most important business problems related to Information Chaos facing YOUR customers?
  2. What do you see as the three most important trends related to Information Chaos facing organizations over the next 18-24 months?  What will be different in our industry two years from now?
  3. What are the three most important things attendees should know about your company?

So here goes short interview #1, with Darrell Mervau, CEO of FileTrail.

What are the three most important business problems related to Information Chaos facing YOUR customers?

1) What exists, 2) where is it, and 3) what is its exposure and/or its value? Our customers face the challenge of having their information-both physical and electronic-in various repositories and physical locations.  Access, visibility, and effectively applying policy are all hurdles faced by the majority of our clients.

What do you see as the three most important trends related to Information Chaos facing organizations over the next 18-24 months?  What will be different in our industry two years from now?

Chaos is still caused by lack of structure and enforcement of rules. Tools that help structure organizations information and that support and help execute information policy are what are needed.  Over the next 18-24 months we see a trend in more effectively applying policies across all information within the organization.  This challenge has been brought to the forefront in recent years due to increased litigation.  We have also started to see a trend towards a more unified approach to information management. 

What are the three most important things attendees should know about your company?

Our solution is relevant to the biggest problems organizations face today.  We deliver a product that helps structure an organization's information, deploy policy and enforce compliance. Customers are telling us that we have addressed the need in the market for an enterprise system that can bring information policy and lifecycle management to an actionable enforceable event. We cover all bases in terms of ease of use, flexibility, and functionality and lower cost of deployment (ownership) with a focus on working with clients to make their policies actionable and increasing the value that their staff can provide to an organization.
