The Internet Strategy Forum and the Society for Information Management(SIM) are hosting an event with a name that's sure to get your attention: I Hate My CMS ? The Perils and Promise of Modern Content Management Systems. Sounds like a good Grumble Fest eh?
Happening Tuesday, February 26, 2008 (8-AM EST) at the Penn Plaza in New York City, this event is for anyone who has ever used or thought about using a Content Management System for their website.
"... while CMSes are among the most vital systems in digital businesses, they are also among the most cursed due to their limitations and idiosyncrasies."
The event is hosted by Joe Galarneau, CTO of Thomas Publishing and Lee Huang, Internet Strategy Forum.
There will be a panel discussion moderated by Joe Galarneau. The panelists include:
* Kyle McNabb, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
* Tim Peters, Managing Director, Leading Hotels of the World/LHW.com
* Albert Lee, Director of Technology, New York Magazine
All aspects of the CMS issue will be discussed from both the business and technology sides with viewpoints from every angle.
And fear not, you will have the opportunity to share your tales of adventure and woe. Maybe a street war will erupt between the open source CMS community and the proprietary gang - including Microsoft SharePoint.
This event may be well worth the US $20 entrance fee ($10 for Internet Strategy Forum Members).
So mark the date in your calendars and head over to the registration page to confirm your seat at the breakfast table.
