Earlier this month, we held our third annual Content.gov event in Washington, DC. designed to highlight the successes federal, local and public sector agencies have experienced in solving the latest document management challenges.
In the spirit of this year’s theme centered around open government, open standards, transparency and collaboration, this is the first in a three-part series that continues the conversation around the tools and resources used to manage government agencies content chaos.
The first US Deputy Chief of Technology, Beth Noveck, kicked off the day encouraging the discussion around President Obama’s Open Government Initiative (OGI) and the US Government’s commitment to building a system of transparency, public participation and interaction. She highlighted that the US Government is moving toward an open platform to foster a smarter government, a better government and a government transparent to its citizens.
Following our keynote address, the audience of over 200 broke out into two separate tracks – technical and business to tackle best practices around records management as well as hear from the Patent Trade Office on how they successfully used Alfresco’s case management solution to enable document workflow, secure file-sharing and records management.
Partners from Zia and Armedia were given the opportunity to highlight the innovative solutions they’ve built using the Alfresco platform while customers ranging from the FDA to AWS shared stories around why they chose Alfresco, the challenges they needed to overcome and how they are well positioned for future projects. Mil-OSS also spoke about open source in the military and how it is changing the way our government does business.
Below are links to all the presentations given during our time together so stay tuned as we welcome others to share their experience at Content.gov and how they are managing, organizing and enabling regulated content to proactively meet open standards!
