Hey we're four weeks off the next Gilbane CMS conference. This one runs November 29th through December 1st at the Westin Copley Place, Boston. The agenda covers new technologies and of course blogging, RSS, wiki's, and then some good old staple around Enterprise Content Management (ECM) best practices and implementation lessons.Highlights include: Keynote Panel: New Technologies You Need to Consider for Content Management Strategies
The pace of information technology development continues to increase as organizations develop experience in implementing content applications, and as software vendors vie to incorporate their customer's feedback into product technologies ahead of the competition. As most enterprise applications become more content-oriented, content technology developments are coming from a broader base of suppliers and developers. This session will look at a couple of technologies relevant to content-oriented applications you may not be aware of, or may not think of in the context of content management strategies. Complementing this session are the analyst panel, and the Keynote debate on Enterprise use of Blog and Wiki technology. Keynote Debate: Blog, Wiki, and RSS Technology - Are they Enterprise Ready? Applicable? Or a Passing Tempest in a Teacup?
Most of you have probably not seriously considered using these technologies in enterprise applications. Yet there are companies using these technologies for collaboration, knowledge management, and publishing applications in corporate environments, and there are vendors marketing products based on these to businesses like yours. Do these companies only represent the experimental fringe, or are they early adopters of technologies that will soon be part of every IT department's bag of tricks? In this session we'll take a look at the suitability of these for corporate use and hear from both skeptics and proponents of, for example enterprise or group blogs. You will come away from this session able to discuss these issues with your colleagues back in the office. CTW Keynote Panel: Enterprise Panel on Best Practices & Implementation Strategies
Speakers in the keynote session for the CTW track complement the opening keynote on technology and trends by sharing their experiences with actually putting content technology to work. This panel features enterprise executives who will describe how their companies leverage the technologies discussed in the first keynote. We'll examine actual business and IT planning scenarios and identify the characteristics associated with successful content technology deployment. The panel sets the stage for the day's track of user success stories and case studies. Conference registration and additional information
