SALT LAKE CITY -- There's something beyond the glamour, the food, the Grammy-winning bands and quips from Michael Keaton at the Adobe Digital Marketing Summit here. Many of the 6,000 attendees gathered at the Salt Palace Convention Center have an important job back home.
They manage Web Content Management Systems (CMS).
It's not as pretty as the sights here in Salt Lake. It's a technology battlefield of code development, implementation challenges and customization realities.
James Trinnaman knows this well. He's the solutions manager for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Salt Lake area. He and his team implemented the Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Web CMS in November 2013.
"Our previous CMS was home-grown based on other platforms," Trinnaman told CMSWire. "People who are doing the content for us wanted a simple way to standardize templates and take a little more control of ownership of publishing themselves so they weren't depending on IT to do so."
