Doc has run a few items about our friends at the Gilbane Group, who specialize in content management and have a great bunch of free reports on enterprise issues. But if you need more detail, you may want to consider attending the upcoming Gilbane Conference in Boston this December 1-3.
For 2009, the Gilbane Conference is more focused than ever on the business impact of content solutions that are here now and ready to be implemented. Every program component is tied to the business issues surrounding marketing, technical, and enterprise content. They've taken the four major areas of how enterprises use Web and content technologies and organized them into tracks that make it easy for you to customize an agenda that meets your business objectives. Along the way you'll have direct interaction including one-on-one time with Gilbane's unique community of enterprise practitioners, analysts, consultants, and solution providers. Look for sessions covering:
Web Content Management (WCM) Enterprise Social Software Enterprise Mobile Content Authoring & Publishing Content Globalization XML & XBRL Enterprise & Site Search Semantic Technologies Enterprise Content Management (ECM)
The Pre-Conference Workshops are Tuesday December 1, 9:00am - 5:00pm, with the main conference on Wednesday December 2, 8:30am - 5:00pm and Thursday December 3, 8:30am - 4:30pm. The Exhibit hours are Wednesday December 2, 10:00am - 6:30pm and Thursday December 3, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.
Doc's attended several Gilbane events and is never disappointed.
