Amsterdam site of this year's two-day roundtable where participants will discuss legal technology strategy, compliance concerns, and the future of legal technology
HOUSTON, Sept. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - Datacert, Inc., the premier global provider of enterprise legal management solutions, announced today plans to host its annual EMEA Roundtable at which legal executives from across Europe will convene to examine industry trends and share ideas for the strategic use of technology to address legal and compliance challenges. This year's roundtable will take place September 27-28 in Amsterdam and presenters will include industry leaders from Datacert partner, IBM, and Datacert client, UBS.
Datacert holds these roundtable sessions annually in cities across Europe, including Brussels and Paris in prior years, to provide its Europe-based clients a forum in which they can discuss the latest trends with industry experts, network with their peers, and collaborate with Datacert on its product roadmap. The focus at this year's event in Amsterdam will be on driving open discussion and interaction, particularly around the topic of how to address global and European compliance challenges, a topic of growing importance to Datacert clients.
"This marks the sixth consecutive year that we have brought together many of Europe's most powerful legal minds for open discussions on the trends influencing the global industry," said Rajitha Boer, vice president, EMEA business development, Datacert. "Hearing from companies, such as UBS, that approach legal department management very strategically, attendees will learn firsthand how to excel with best practices that leverage technology to improve operational efficiency, manage risk, and achieve tangible cost reduction."
There will also be an extended session at this year's roundtable during which representatives from Datacert's product team will review future product plans, including upcoming business intelligence enhancements and 2013 plans. This will be followed by an interactive session where clients will have the opportunity to provide open feedback to the Datacert roadmap.
"We have some very exciting new products coming out this year in the areas of business intelligence, mobility, and compliance management, and the roundtable attendees will get a 'sneak-preview' of what's coming," stated Jim Tallman, president and CEO, Datacert. "For our longer-term roadmap, gathering client input in this forum is essential to ensuring that Datacert continues to lead the market in terms of products and features that support the unique needs of companies based in or doing business in Europe."
This year's EMEA Roundtable will take place September 27-28 in Amsterdam at the Marriott, Stadhouderskade 12, Amsterdam, 1054 ES. Attendance at the event is limited. If interested in attending, please contact Erica Gannon at [email protected].
