Search for “2017 top IT trends,” and you’ll find big data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning on almost every list. What is all the fuss about, and where do records managers fit into these trends? This joint ARMA NOVA/ARMA Metropolitan Maryland seminar will explore these topics as well as implications for the profession.

Organizations are investing in big data platforms and hiring data scientists to take advantage of the patterns found in extremely large data sets to improve their business. They also use artificial intelligence or machine learning to create algorithms that iteratively learn from data, and to find hidden insights without explicitly programming where to look.

In a big data world, it’s important to know what we want from the data, and records managers are well positioned to help their organizations with data queries. Records managers can also benefit by working with data scientists and big data platforms to better understand how to manage records across the enterprise, including the costs, risks and benefits. They have an opportunity to work with data scientists and to train machine intelligence to automate records management, making it easier and more cost effective to implement.
