We are going to have fun with the keynotes this year with our new rapid-fire format. You won’t want to miss any of it so be sure to get their early enough for a good seat. Also, please remember that after seven years at the Westin at Copley Place we have moved to a roomier spot at the Westin Waterfront at 425 Summer Street. You could easily lose 45 minutes by showing up at the wrong hotel!
Wednesday, November 30, 8:30 – 10:00 & 11:00 – 12:00
Our keynotes are designed to inspire, provoke, and provide perspective on the big issues, trends, and shifting foundation of technologies, digital strategies, and channels for communication and engagement. Our keynote sessions this year will use a rapid-fire format. Each speaker will focus on describing a single big idea or making a bold statement that will help us think a little differently about our use or expectations of content and content technologies. Presentations are limited to 10-15 minutes with 5 minutes for Q&A. Use of slides will be minimal.

Today we highlight the Building Robust Content Assets session at Gilbane San Francisco.
This session takes place on May 20th at 2:00pm PST.
T10. Building Robust Content Assets
Robust content can drive many processes designed to realize savings in time and costs and enable high quality, accurate information. Building robust content requires an understanding of the business drivers for your content and the systems that are used to create and manage it. Migrating legacy content to a robust environment will entail adding detail and value to the content before it can enable these benefits. This session focuses on the challenges and goals for creating robust content.
Video Introduction to the session.
Moderator: Dale Waldt, Senior Consultant, Gilbane Group
Andrew Striemer & Chad Miller, Robert Half International
“Pain Free Content Migration at Robert Half International”
Deane Barker, Content Management Practice Director, Blend Interactive
“The Mysterious Art of the Content Inventory”
Dick Weisinger, Software Technologist, Formtek
“Building a Global View of Your Organizational Data”

Gilbane San Francisco 2010 pre-conference workshops are a great way to get up-to-speed quickly with a half-day deep dive. Today we would like to highlight:
Instructor: Lisa Welchman, Partner, WelchmanPierpoint
These are exciting and challenging times for the Content Management industry – vendor consolidation, fundamental changes in the way people engage, the ubiquity of tools like SharePoint, the debate over the very definition of what makes a CMS – all as the discipline of managing content matures and emerges from IT.
We get the ball rolling on the pre-conference workshops with representatives from the CM Pros Board (including Scott Liewehr and Ian Truscott) and leading guest speakers (including Lisa Welchman) to look at the big picture of what it means to be a CM professional today. We’ll take a look at the trends and offer our perspectives.
We’ll also be revealing the results of our survey, ‘CMState’ – where we’ve called upon the 13,000+ members of the CM Pros extended community to tell us what’s really affecting them, their organizations and their industry. We believe it to be the first and largest survey of content management professionals of its kind.
We won’t just be talking about the technology, the vendors and the strategies, but also about our profession – what it means to be a content management professional. We’ll talk openly about our industry, and how the CM Pros organization can help and what we have planned. As our industry moves and reinvents – so must we.
In this session we will:
- Exclusively reveal the results of our CMState survey; what are the real trends and challenges our industry is facing – in the words of the people facing them
- Dissect some of those challenges and trends with thought-provoking presentations and workshop activities
- Help you connect with your profession as a content management practitioner
- Give you a primer for the rest of the conference – the sorts of questions we think you should have in mind as you enter the sessions and network with your peers
We look forward to you joining us. In the meantime, how about participating in our survey? It’s open to all and we’ll send you the results in a whitepaper – .Read More
Gilbane San Francisco is next week, and soon after we’ll be switching our energies to our annual Boston conference. The 2009 dates are December 1-3, and we are returning to the Westin Copley hotel for our 6th year. The first important date is the call for papers deadline, which is June 15th. Instructions for submitting speaking proposals can be found at: http://gilbane.com/speaker_guidelines.html.
The track structure this year will be similar to what we are doing in San Francisco. We are still fiddling with the exact names and descriptions, but currently the tracks are:
- Web & Business Engagement
- Managing Collaboration with Colleagues and Customers
- Integrating, Searching & Publishing Enterprise Content
- Content Infrastructure Strategies
We’ll be continuing our focus on enterprise use of social software and how it integrates into various business applications. We’ll also be adding more coverage of mobile content strategies and technologies. The mobile channel is no longer just for pure consumer applications, but has a critical role to play in mainstream business applications, for collaborating and content delivery, and much more. "Smartphone" platforms are rapidly becoming at least as important as desktops, notebooks and netbooks. Some specific technology areas at the Boston conference will be:
- Web Content Management
- Enterprise Social Software
- Enterprise Mobile Content
- Authoring & Publishing
- Content Globalization
- XML & XBRL
- Enterprise & Site Search
- Semantic Technologies
- Enterprise Content Management
We have just created a Twitter account for the conference: http://twitter.com/gilbaneboston , and we’ll use #gilbaneboston for the hashtag. We are going to use our main twitter account for Boston at http://twitter.com/gilbane .
That’s the cost of compliance in the U.S. Securities Industry for 2005 according to the Securities Industry Association (SIA).
That’s the percentage of respondents to a SearchStorage.com poll that did not know if they were in compliance because they could not figure out what they have to do.
That’s the amount Morgan Stanley was fined for failing to produce tens of thousands of e-mails during SEC investigations from December, 2000 through through July, 2005.
No wonder compliance issues today = fear. They don’t have to.
Compliance is about recordkeeping. The core issue is surprisingly clear — focus on the lifecycle of paper and electronic communications – how information is created, routed, managed, accessed and archived.
Join us tomorrow, November 9, 2006 at 11:00am EDT for my panel discussion with Omtool CTO Thaddeus Bouchard and HP Financial Services Solutions Manager Joseph Wagle to discuss how to make compliance practices a seamless part of your business processes.
