Promoting The Value of Information Management as a Service Across the Enterprise

As many companies continue to review their resources in challenging economic times, information managers may find themselves having to be even more creative in demonstrating the value of their information services and support to their customer communities. Elsevier's 2013 Corporate Event will focus on these challenges and provide a practical forum for the exchange of ideas between attendees.

Topics

In addition to Elsevier’s product updates and future plans, we have contributions from information specialists from Europe. The event will address issues like:

  • achieving greater visibility across the business for information services
  • tactics for securing continued attention from senior stakeholders
  • examples of successful campaigns
  • how Elsevier supports its information specialists community in promoting the value of their services

Registration is closed. If you would like to attend one of our future events please contact us.
