- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, March 01, 2016 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EST, 7:00am PST
Understanding the advantages and challenges of digital document management
This webinar follows the lifecycle of a document: Digital contracts go through many phases throughout their existence. From the production of the document, through presentation, revisions, and then being signed by the involved parties. But the journey doesn't end there. If the contract is valid for a long time, periodic re-sealing is also required, to ensure its validity as well in the future.
Digital documents have plenty of advantages compared to paper-based alternatives. They flow faster back and forth between the sending and receiving parties, even signatures between several business partners working all at different ends of the globe are gathered within a few moments. Last but not least they also save postal and courier costs.
However, appropriate digital document solutions have to be thoroughly secured and they have to meet all different juridical norms of the countries in which they are being deployed. Thus they have to fulfill all but small technological demands.
This KuppingerCole Webinar provides information on
- encrypted digital signing of documents on the Internet
- the differences between electronic and digital signatures
- electronic identity and electronic/digital signature solutions
- hosting and management of identity data

The past few months have not only been disruptive to business models, but also to the way many people work. Working from Home (WfH) is the new normal for many of us, but it comes with many challenges, for workers, for their managers, for the IT teams. One of the biggest challenges is finding the right balance between enabling WfH and security.
