Alfresco, the leading open-source provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Business Process Management (BPM) solutions, has announced that it will host federal, state, and local government agencies at its 6th annual event on January 26th at The National Press Club in Washington DC. The theme this year is “Achieving Digital Transformation in Government” with keynote speeches, presentations and panel sessions discussing solutions to help government agencies move beyond just information compliance, to information governance.

“Federal agencies are undergoing profound changes as a result of the move to a digital government and what that means for how employees share information and collaborate,” said Austin Adams, vice president, public sector at Alfresco. “Government IT and Information leaders are at the intersection of the tech revolution, where the shift towards a digital world and the demanding requirements of security and compliance can collide. At, we are bringing together the best minds from industry and government to discuss future developments in technology tools that allow for collaboration, workflow processes and content management that are flexible enough to meet the needs of this changing content landscape.”

Recognizing these trends and addressing them in a unified approach is essential to providing both the access to content that users need and the structural controls that IT demands. This year, will feature a number of great presenters including:

  • Lisa Haralampus, Director, Records Management Policy and Outreach, National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)
  • Kris Rowley, Chief Data Officer, General Services Administration (GSA)
  • U.S. Senator Steve Daines, State of Montana
  • Doug Dennerline, CEO, Alfresco
  • John Newton, CTO & Co-Founder, Alfresco

These include reports, memoranda, presentations, videos, emails and similar records that are internal to an agency, as well as those that meet the needs of contractors, suppliers, and other departments across the agency. This revolution has created a massive amount of new records in both digital and physical formats.
