Missed AIIM 2014? Or did you just miss out on a session or three you wanted to see? In the coming weeks, we'll be sharing many of the presentations with you. Actionable advice and thought leadership brought to you by some of the smartest people in the information technology industry.

Alan Pelz-Sharpe presented his keynote: The Fragmented Enterprise: ECM in the Era of Social Business.

The traditional organizational structure of workers sat at desktops, connecting to a business application protected by a firewall is rapidly eroding. In a short period of time we have gone from a wired and bound world, to an unwired "internet in the pocket" world. Driven by the power of the cloud and the crowd, enterprise technology is experiencing innovation at an unparalleled pace with no sign of things slowing down. In this keynote session we will look at what this new digital infrastructure enables, both the positive opportunities for truly social business to emerge alongside the challenges and serious unresolved issues it also raises.

Alan Pelz-Sharpe is the Research Director for Social Business at global analyst firm 451 Research. He has over 25 years of experience in the information management and consulting industry, providing strategic advice to numerous enterprises, government departments and suppliers around the world. Alan is quoted in the Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, The Daily Mail & The New York Times. He has appeared on CNN, CNBC and the BBC commentating on the tech sector, and writes a regular column for The Register. By design or default he has become an opinionated and sometimes divisive industry skeptic, fortunately he is also a passionate sabre fencer and a jobbing actor - so he figures that at a push that he can sword fight or talk his way out of most tricky situations.
