CRANFORD, NJ — March 16, 2011 – Paragon Solutions, a business consulting and information technology services firm, will present on the process for successfully implementing an enterprise-wide Electronic Archiving (eArchiving) Service at the upcoming AIIM International Conference and Expo @ info360. The conference will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC on March 21 – 24, 2011. David Berglund, strategy & program director for archives and records management at Paragon client, AstraZeneca, will co-present with Paragon engagement director and records management subject matter expert Ron Rossbach.

The presentation, “From Good Idea to Business Case to Reality: A Case Study in Successful Electronic Archiving,” will focus on how to progress from identifying the need for information governance within an organization, through development of the business case, to successfully launching an eArchiving solution.

“There are many presentations that focus on how to implement an electronic archiving service, but where many of these projects fall down in companies is in making the business case for the investment,” said Rossbach. “We wanted to show how our successful eArchive Service implementation at AstraZeneca was in part due to accurately identifying what it was going to take to make the project a reality and effectively justifying the investment to senior management. Without a solid business case, there is the risk that the initiative may become like many traditional IT projects where what was initially intended is not what is delivered.”

Berglund and Rossbach will provide insight into the successful execution of a global, enterprise-wide Electronic Archiving Service program including: how to approach quantifiable benefits with tangible return on investment; how to successfully manage and gain stakeholder buy-in; the key people, process and technology factors that need to be addressed; and how to ensure full realization of return on investment.

The presentation will be part of the Records Management conference track on Thursday, March 24 from 11:10 a.m. – 11: 50 a.m.
