Approximately 200 Information Management (IM) professionals attended the DPI seminar in Ottawa recently.
DPI is the Association of Public Sector Information Professionals, a Canadian volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to promoting development of public sector professionals, and to applying Information Management and Technology (IM/IT) in the Federal Government of Canada, as well as other public sector jurisdictions.
The IM pros were there to hear Product Manager Jeff Brand deliver a presentation titled PDF/A – Addressing the challenges of digitizing and preserving paper-based documents in the Government of Canada.
We also met with a gentleman who has been introducing us to high level government people. Bob Charleau, retired Director General, HRDC, Government of Canada, and past president of DPI, is currently a strategic advisor for Maplesoft.
