Technical Tips You Can Hang Your Hat On

Blog Post created by Amy Robertson Employee on Sep 19, 2017

My first (and only) trip to Dallas, TX was as a high school junior to attend the Future Business Leaders of America National Leadership Conference. It was two action-packed days spent connecting with hundreds of amazingly talented and motivated youth, just beginning to embark on our professional journeys, attending sessions and learning valuable skills from notable industry professionals. I find it only fitting that my second trip to Dallas (now many years later) will be spent this time with hundreds of amazingly talented and motivated professionals, sharing ideas about business driven security, risk and compliance, and networking with fellow practitioners at RSA Charge. RSA Charge will bring together the best and brightest GRC professionals at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, October 17-19.


This year will mark my seventh year attending RSA Charge and it never ceases to impress me. For the past three years I have had the pleasure of overseeing the Archer Technical session track. The Archer Technical and Advanced Technical tracks are geared toward Archer administrators who want to expand their knowledge of the RSA Archer platform and learn creative ways to further extend its capabilities. From new Archer admins just starting out, to seasoned Archer experts, there is something for everyone. You can attend sessions delivered by our own RSA Archer engineers, who will be covering the newest features and functionality in the product. (It’s one of the rare occasions you can encounter our engineers out in the wild, and they’re more than happy to talk shop with you.) We also have customer-led sessions delivered by fellow RSA Archer admins who will share tips for managing the Archer platform, lessons learned, and highlight their own custom implementations that expanded the power of the RSA Archer framework. I’ve seen some of the most innovative ideas come from our customers and partners!


Here are a few of the highlights in the RSA Archer Technical track:

  • Hear Humana talk about how they migrated their business processes from a sunsetting system into RSA Archer.

  • Learn how U.S. Bank used the workflow capabilities in RSA Archer to centralize previously isolated processes across different internal teams and manage critical documentation through an integration with SharePoint.

  • Get a first look at new RSA Archer Platform 6.3 features, including our System Administrator dashboard for monitoring your RSA Archer deployment and new Bulk Record Operations that make it even easier to update your data in Archer.

  • Attend the “Stump an Admin” session where you’ll have the opportunity to seek answers to your own questions about the RSA Archer platform from a panel of veteran Archer Administrators. Can you stump the admins?
