Newton, Massachusetts (PRWEB) April 29, 2011
Lyra Research (http://www.lyra.com), the digital imaging authority, announces that Joel Mazza, director of Lyra’s Managed Document Practice, will present 'How Do We Restart the Innovation Machine: Lessons Learned from Print and the MPS Distribution Model' at the Everything Channel’s Print and Imaging Summit (http://everythingchannelevents.com/pims11_agenda). Mazza’s closing keynote presentation will take place on Wednesday, May 4, from 1:45-2:30 p.m.
During his session, Mazza will examine why technological innovation is needed now, more than ever, in the office environment. He will discuss why so few game-changing technology solutions exist, why technology is creating more costs than benefits, and how to restart the innovation machine. His presentation will detail how new managed print processes are providing innovations and what IT/corporate print professionals can learn from the print world and the new managed print services (MPS) distribution model.
“I appreciate the opportunity to discuss the importance of technological innovation and the business intelligence that can be gathered from print activities and MPS,” said Mazza. “One of the major business problems facing IT and corporate print professionals is determining how to prioritize projects to pursue and identify which projects will provide the greatest benefit to their organization. Optimizing a device fleet may not be glamorous, but it can deliver measurable bottom-line results. A number of mature and tested technologies are now available to accurately track and compare critical device information against a variety of real-world averages. When it comes to controlling costs, the hardest part is capturing and simplifying the data for effective analysis. For example, one of the key things we can now learn from the MPS tools is how much the age and profile of an office equipment fleet directly impacts operating costs.” (See chart.)
The Print and Imaging Summit will be held May 3-4, 2011 at The Peabody Orlando in Orlando, FL. The conference is ideal for IT and corporate print executives who are interested in the key trends and innovations shaping the print and imaging marketplace. The event will keenly focus on the burgeoning managed print services market and will provide insight into the adoption of a wide range of print and imaging products, the transformation taking place in the market, and how innovators are embracing the new era of disruptive technologies and services.
