Technology Trends: spend management, reasons to be cheerful & "disruptive innovation"
kindly sponsored by infocandy.com
There's something for everyone at City Information Group's April seminar. Our three speakers are at the forefront of interpreting technology trends and providing solutions for information professionals.
Spend management and reduction of procurement costs are hot topics in many large organisations. Anna Westerberg will speak about e-procurement systems and how these can be used to increase the control of subscription spend on journals and magazines, and reduce hidden costs.
Are we about to see the return of the eBook? Dan Penny thinks so. His presentation will look at why eBooks didn't work first time, the risks and advantages of publishing books online, and the recent reasons to be cheerful.
Web 2.0 - you've heard about it. Now take this opportunity to find out exactly what it is. What does it mean for information services? Paul Miller, author of a white paper "Libraries 2.0: the challenge of disruptive innovation?" is our speaker on this topic.
As ever, you'll have the opportunity to ask how all this applies to your professional situation - both in the Q&A session and afterwards informally.
