Debuting New Innovations to ASG’s Product Portfolio
At EVOLVE19, ASG will unveil new products and capabilities that will provide organisations with the newest technologies that will change how organisations are automating and digitising critical activities and which complement a variety of competitive strategies globally, while ensuring compliance.

Seeing the Future Through the Lens of Tech and Business Thought Leaders
With the pace of innovation accelerating each year, it’s critical that organisations have the necessary tools and best practices in place to operate at the speed of business while continuing their digital transformation journey. EVOLVE19 will provide attendees with the opportunity to network and discuss these topics with their peers and meet with ASG executives and product leaders to develop specific strategies for meeting their own organisational needs.
The event will feature keynote addresses from Paul Muller, co-founder and chief strategist of Denting the Universe, a global organisation helping businesses deliver breakthrough thinking by challenging the status quo; Ray Wang, Principal Analyst, Founder, and Chairman of Constellation Research, Inc. and author of the popular business strategy and technology blog “A Software Insider’s Point of View;” and – for the second consecutive year – Mike Walsh, best-selling author and CEO of Tomorrow, a global consultancy on designing business for the 21st century. Sessions will also include presentations from global customers focused on how they have leveraged ASG’s Data Intelligence, Content Services and IT Systems solutions to improve data and IT infrastructure management and accelerate innovation.
The 2019 ASG Excellence Award winners will also be unveiled at EVOLVE19. The Excellence Awards recognise ASG Customers and Partners who are driving innovation and digital transformation via ASG solutions. Interested Customers and Partners can submit nominations until July 31, and winners will be notified on August 21, ahead of the awards ceremony at EVOLVE19.
“Today’s organisations are expected to constantly be at the forefront of digital innovation. Pushing technological boundaries — while staying compliant — is requiring more time and resources as the regulatory environment and data privacy demands grow more complex. Organisations need to balance this change and pace to stay competitive,” said Chuck Neal, EVP sales, services and marketing of ASG Technologies. “At EVOLVE19, our customers and partners come together to share their organisational challenges and goals and, most importantly, come away with knowledge of the tools and skills that will allow them to not only compete in the information economy but to accelerate their competitive edge.”
