Another Year at ILTA's SharePoint Symposium

by Megan on Thursday, June 19, 2014

EIM President, Peter Lieber and Contentworker’s David Little took part in this year’s annual ILTA SharePoint Symposium. The symposium was once again held in Lombard, IL on June 10 &11, and Peter mentioned, in his opinion, it was the best one yet! The conference featured sessions from expert speakers, deep dives and workshops, and an exhibit hall for attendees to meet with various SharePoint vendors. The keynote on Tuesday morning, titled “Leveraging SharePoint 2013, Here, There, and Everywhere,” was a great way to kick things off! Dramatic shifts that are likely to take place over the next decade were discussed, the biggest one being organizations shifting to cloud-based systems. As Peter stated in a previous blog, the cloud is definitely a trend making a large impact in the document management field.  I think the ILTA SharePoint Symposium website sums it up best writing, “Bill Gates is often quoted as saying ‘We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten.’” All in all, Peter and David had a great time at the conference and enjoyed meeting new people as well as mingling with clients and friends. I think it’s clear; they will definitely be back next year!
