It was a great year to attend DIA’s 2015 Annual Meeting, an event that unites life sciences professionals with the shared goal of nurturing innovation. We had the chance to travel to our nation’s capitol and exhibit at the event. Here are our key takeaways from the conference:

I'd like you to hop in a time machine with me as we go back in time to the summer of 1776. Earlier in the summer, Congress spent two days debating and revising the language of The Declaration of Independence. Now, nearly a month later, 56 delegates have gathered with quill pens in hand to sign the historic document.
Born during the brink of tech revolution in the 1980s and 1990s, Millennials are becoming the new influencers in the workplace and marketplace. The world is becoming theirs to own, and however they shape the future, it’s likely their digital instincts will play a role. Consider these facts from the Millennial Generation Research Review:
- 80 percent of Millennials sleep with their cell phones next to their beds
- Millennials are 2.5 times more likely to be early adopters of technology than are older generations
- 60 percent of Millennials produce and upload online content
At SIGNiX, we talk a lot about identity which is process of identifying people online. It's a big deal in the e-signature world. After all, if you don't know who is signing a document, what use is a signature? We get a lot of questions about the most secure type of identity authentication we offer — knowledge based authentication (KBA) — so I thought I'd take a minute to explain KBA.
In the wake of establishing a start-up business or revitalizing a long-established company, the rush to “just get it done” can be detrimental. For example, adopting the wrong technology can negatively affect the security and legal standing of your company’s contracts, potentially for decades – especially when it comes to identity authentication.
For many of us, trying to read our doctor’s signature is like trying to decipher a foreign language. Why is it often illegible? Because he’s written his signature so many times! Physicians have to put their signatures on everything from prescriptions to medical leave forms to medical equipment orders and more. For some, this means signing over 100 documents a day.
In our digital society, many of us rely on the Internet for record keeping. Think about the last time you used a credit card to fill your car with gas. Chances are you didn't take the paper receipt—or you threw it away because you didn't want to add more paper clutter to your life (or your car). Most of us don’t mind forgoing this physical proof-of-purchase because we know that evidence of our purchase will be in our electronic bank statement.
