<p>2004 Information Lifecycle Management Solutions Conference to focus on increasing compliance, safety and effectiveness of enterprise data</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – July 30, 2004 – The Storage Networking Industry Association’s (SNIA) Data Management Forum (DMF) will host the world’s first Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) conference, the 2004 Information Lifecycle Management Solutions Conference and Expo, October 3-5, 2004, at the Hyatt Regency in Long Beach, CA.</p>
<p>”The practice of Information Lifecycle Management is undergoing significant, rapid changes,” said Charles Curtis, senior storage engineer for Hewlett Packard and chairman of the SNIA Data Management Forum. These changes are being driven by a growing emphasis on disaster recovery and business continuity, the proliferation of regulatory mandates like Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA, and operational requirements to increase the effective use of information assets. This conference was developed to help information management professionals evaluate and meet all of these expectations as efficiently as possible.</p>
<p>The 2004 ILM Solutions Conference and Expo is the first industry event to gather and present the latest and most comprehensive knowledge and technology available that addresses this most critical organisational requirement. The issues, solutions and best practices for data protection, retention, regulatory compliance, disaster recovery and information lifecycle management are important elements of data centre operations and information management practices. The conference will feature presentations and demonstrations by companies and individuals developing technologies and standards that drive the industry.</p>
<p>Information management professionals seeking solutions to today’s increasingly complex business challenges can choose from educational sessions at the conference and visit with more than 170 manufacturers and suppliers of information management products in the expo hall, as well as attend briefings on cutting-edge technologies in the information management industry.</p>
<p>Concurrent with ARMA Event:
The 2004 ILM Solutions event will be held in conjunction with the ARMA International 49th Annual Conference and Expo. Attendees will have access to a combined exhibit hall and will have the opportunity to network with the collective community of both events.
Established in 1956, ARMA (The Association for Information Management Professionals) International has more than 10,000 members and is the oldest and largest association for the records and information management profession.
