Enterprise Information Management (EIM) has emerged recently in the IT lexicon as a description of the business and technology functions that manage Information as a corporate asset. This conference will discuss the practical requirements for doing just that – turning your information into an organizational asset for increasing value, improving productivity, reducing costs and making better decisions.

About the Conference

Wilshire Conferences is proud to announce their second Enterprise Information Management Conference to be held in Toronto, Canada. The program will focus on EIM as an emerging discipline for tying together all of the enterprise’s information assets and applications.

The Enterprise Information Management (EIM) Conference, to be held September 21 - 23, at the Hilton Toronto, is designed to facilitate the interaction of business and IT professionals in kick-starting the EIM agenda for their organizations.

Through tutorials, lectures, discussions and case study sessions, you will gain value from real-world tales of exactly how organizations are implementing the tools and techniques that comprise this emerging discipline.

If you are a business or IT professional shouldering the responsibility of developing your EIM strategy, we hope you will join DAMA International and Wilshire Conferences in Toronto for the Enterprise Information Management Conference. Learn what EIM really is…and how you take it from idea to reality.

What Exactly is EIM?

Let’s start by acknowledging that there is no single, indisputable definition of EIM. Some analysts define it in specific terms, others more generally. Some view it as a data-centric part of the overall information management strategy – the next generation of data administration, while others see it as an integration layer in support of business processes. Gartner, Inc., for example, says that EIM is the logical layer of an IT architecture…use it for your application and integration programs. Forrester, on the other hand, talks about EIM in terms of integrating structured and unstructured data and content. So EIM means different things to different people, but they all coalesce around the idea that the EIM vision is for a truly integrated, holistic information resource to finally become a reality.

Sound like a familiar promise? Yes it is, so what’s different now, in 2010, that might make this promise a reality? That’s what we’re going to talk about at this conference…information management and integration on an enterprise scale which is now technologically feasible and cost effective.

Sponsorship and Exhibit opportunities are still available. Please contact Maya Stosskopf at maya@wilshireconferences.com
