Dedham, MA & Research Triangle Park, NC (22 April 2009) – ISA and ARC Advisory Group announced today that ARC Advisory Group will host an Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM) Knowledge Exchange and Technology Showcase in a special pavilion at this year's ISA EXPO, held 6-8 October in Houston, TX. The knowledge exchange will include a series of educational workshops and presentations by ARC analysts, end users, and leading technology suppliers.

Experts from ARC and its partners will also be available at various Showcase booths on the exhibition floor to discuss individual needs and demonstrate the capabilities of various solutions.
