Join Sherpa Software at MER 2015 (May 18-20) to Explore Practical Solutions to Challenges Facing the Records Management Community

MER is the only conference exclusively focused on addressing the key operational, technical, and legal issues associated with the life-cycle management of electronic records. Through formal sessions, associated networking events and exhibitors, MER seeks to provide attendees with innovative and practical solutions. Sherpa Software has been developing technology to manage electronic content for over 15 years. New devices, new data sources, and expanding regulatory mandates are all propelling us into this arena of information governance.

In 2014, we launched Sherpa Altitude IG. Altitude IG is a modular platform that helps our clients extend their information governance reach to a wide-array of electronic content. These enterprise class governance capabilities empower teams to more effectively and efficiently discover and inventory unstructured data, respond to legal discovery requests or compliance requirements, reduce vulnerabilities, identify gaps in processes and enforce records management policy, enable visibility across the enterprise and allows IT, Legal, Compliance, and Records Management to work together collaboratively.

Sherpa Software will be at MER in downtown Chicago, May 18-20 to meet with the records management community and share best practices and practical advice on managing the information life-cycle and implementing a corporate information governance program (CIGP®). We will be prepared to address a broad spectrum of information governance challenges and will also be performing demos of our signature IG platform that allows administrators to locate and manage content on the corporate network, hosted environments and remote devices including user desktops.

If you are planning to attend, visit MyMER and schedule your time with a Sherpa Software team member today. If you aren’t registered but want to attend, visit the MER Conference web site and see if this educational event is right for you. We look forward to seeing you at the Managing Electronic Records (MER) Conference May 18-20 in Chicago.
