The conference is designed for enterprise professionals of every discipline. Although it is addressing technology issues, it is not a "technical" conference. It addresses the subjects that both enterprise professionals and information professionals must understand to operate effectively in collaboration in the Information Age environment.Further, the conference is appropriate for both management and operational (technical) professionals. For management it clarifies the issues for decision purposes and enables more meaningful dialog with and among the technology community. For operations, it establishes the context for developing improved approaches and implementation strategies.
