A Day in the Life

A day typically sees me researching emerging technology, its capabilities and mapping standards to assess likely impacts on an organisation, its practice, and the software products in use. My role demands a broad knowledge of information management (records management, web content management, enterprise content management) and a strong grasp of the underlying information technology environment. I spend a lot of time researching, documenting, reviewing, assessing and reporting on current and future trends and their potential impact or influence on current systems. I am also often asked to present on these trends at seminars and conferences which means that public speaking and travel form a solid component of my job.
