New York / Washington DC, 07 November 2014. From digital signatures to automated invoice processing to ADA compliance, PDFs capabilities go far beyond a faithful rendition of a printable page. But although PDF is accepted everywhere, the technology is underutilized everywhere as well.
With the PDF Days, taking place in the USA for the first time, the PDF Association is offering IT executives and managers an outstanding opportunity to gain an understanding of the capabilities and true power of this proven, open, standards-based technology everyone already uses. All speakers are technology experts, not marketers. They will deliver an intensive day of high-level education on what can be accomplished with this universally-accepted electronic document technology.
PDF Day sessions will discuss, without product or company promotion, the possibilities for leveraging this open, ISO standards-based technology in a wide variety of business-cases in commercial and government organizations. These events are intended specifically for IT and ECM executives, strategists and others whose mission is to reduce friction in existing business processes while leveraging familiar technologies.
The PDF Day is hosted by the PDF Association, in order to raise awareness of the power of PDF technology among IT executives and planners.
The PDF Day in Washington DC on December 10 will have 18 short, intensive sessions in two tracks, all dedicated to addressing the government IT perspective on PDF technology, especially archiving (PDF/A), authentication (digital signatures) and accessibility (Section 508). A panel discussion on trends in government adoption of document technology, and while all educational sessions will be vendor and product neutral, the fast-paced commercial session: 4 minutes with a PDF developer ends the day by highlighting whats available on the market.
The PDF Day in New York on December 11 will have 15 sessions in two tracks, all dedicated to delivering information and answering questions about how PDF technology enables electronic business, with special focus on the financial services and legal sectors. The day ends with a panel discussion on where electronic document technology should be going.
