[Podcast] How to Prepare for the CIP Exam

Test...Quiz...Exam...How do these words make you feel? For many, the mere mention of them is enough to conjure up feelings of anxiety, stress and pressure. You don't often hear people say, "I LOVE taking tests." At AIIM, we know tests can be downright scary. But, we also know the power of preparation and understanding. A lot of times fear comes from the unknown - in the case of a test, not knowing what to expect, not knowing if you're prepared, and just overall fear of failure from not knowing enough.

Intelligent Information Management (IIM)...It sounds great, but what the heck do those 3 words really mean? Here at AIIM, you've probably heard us use IIM to describe the core set of capabilities that are necessary for organizations to digitally transform. In fact, we believe so whole-heartedly that it's the future of Information Management that we actually changed our name to the Association of Intelligent Information Management and even wrote the book on it. But, what does IIM mean from a user's perspective? What's changing in the industry that's driving IIM? That's what host Kevin Craine aimed to find out on this episode of AIIM on Air. Follow along as Kevin speaks with new AIIM member and Solution Manager at Consolis Sten Söderberg about the evolution of IIM and the upcoming challenges.

[Podcast] A User's View of GDPR

It's hard to believe it has been just about 3 months since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25th, 2018. This new regulation was designed to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU) and came with a strict set of compliance protocols. And, because GDPR also applies to the export of personal data outside the EU, it's applicable to any entity that uses or exchanges this data - so, there are a lot of us all around the world feeling the pressure of GDPR. To help organizations prepare, there's no shortage of valuable GDPR resources available all over the internet. But, what about advice from the users working in the trenches? What advice do they have? That's exactly what we aimed to find out with this episode of AIIM on Air. Join your host Kevin Craine as he sits down with Elisabeth Belisle, Digital Transformation Consultant at Restore PLC, and Ed Steenhoek, Solution Principal and Product Manager at Informed Consulting to chat about the biggest difficulties being experienced right now by organizations working to be compliant with the GDPR and steps organizations should take to assess their state of compliance.
