Workflow was invited to attend the Executive Connection Summit in Scottsdale this October and we encountered many unexpected surprises. SAP’s Kevin Gilroy, senior vice president and general manager, Global Indirect Channels and SAP Global Partner Operations was one of them. Articulate, fun and smart with an appreciation  of millennials not always present among senior management, Gilroy broke down the technology inflection point for us, among other things. Words like epic, jazzed, simplicity and introspection were used, and from Gilroy they almost sound like fighting words. Please join us in the SpeakEasy.

Security is obviously a major concern for every business these days, and it has become the focal point for many. Of course, the issue of IT security involves multiple aspects, from securing computing devices to protection of data, networks, and processing power, to name just a few.  But the complexities surrounding security continue to mount with the ongoing overlap between office and consumer technologies and services.

No, we’re not talking about an elite sect of the Central Intelligence Agency. This article is about how to bring control and security to your organization’s unstructured content (e.g., documents, emails, voicemails and the like — essentially the information that is not housed in a database) according to the security principles of confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA).
