Platinum Sponsorship and Dedication to Educational Content Reinforce ZL’s Long-Time Commitment to ARMA’s Status as a Premier Venue for Information Governance Professionals

Milpitas, CA – October 1, 2015 ZL Technologies, Inc. (ZL), the leader in unified information governance for large organizations, continues its multi-year track record of extensive involvement and support for ARMA International’s professional development opportunities. This year’s sponsorship at the ARMA Live! Conference and Expo marks an all-time high in ZL’s involvement at the event, prompted by the escalating importance of records and information management (RIM) in proactive business strategy. The event, now in its 60th year, will be held from October 5th-7th at the Gaylord National Harbor, and will feature ZL Technologies at Booth 325 on the expo floor.

The rise of Big Data has breathed new life and importance into the field of records management. As analytics teams race to derive business value from items such as documents, emails, and instant messages, they often find that data “silos” and duplicate copies create skewed and disparate data sets that severely impede insight. RIM professionals, as long time curators of data policies and content, have now become established foundational players in the analytics process as proactive managers of unstructured data. Without ongoing information governance, all downstream analytics efforts either provide erroneous conclusions or simply fail to provide timely results.

For the 2015 ARMA event, ZL has extensive Platinum Sponsorship involvement with both educational sessions and professional networking opportunities:

  • ZL Keynote Session: “A Bigger RIM This Way Comes” Monday, October 5th 2015 | 8:30 – 10:45 AM | Potomac A-BIn the age of big data analytics, unified RIM practices are more critical than ever before. This keynote addresses the emergent role of today’s records manager.

Conference in such high esteem,” emphasized Kon Leong, CEO of ZL Technologies. “Their commitment to education provides an ideal forum for discussion of the long-range Information Governance strategies which we have always championed. This year’s event further underscores the critical role that records professionals will play in the management of the data lake, especially as Big Data analytics continues to evolve.”
