Gilbane Report to Administer Industry Initiative to Promote & Disseminate Content Technology Best Practices

The Gilbane Report announced that it has agreed to administer an industry initiative to be known as The Gilbane Content Technology Works Program. Under the auspices of this program, best practices and success stories will be documented, assessed and published.

Gilbane Content Technology Works founding partners include Software AG, Sun Microsystems, Artesia Technologies, Atomz, Context Media, Convera, Vignette, and WebWare. Material will be developed in collaboration with enterprises able to share their experiences and will be written in “the enterprise’s voice.” Final editorial review and the essential components of these works will be established by the enterprises whose stories we relate. In order to develop this valuable information at no cost to the consumer, leading content technology vendors have been invited to subsidize the expense of developing and distributing content technology best practices. Vendor partners do not determine which enterprises we collaborate with and will be subsidizing success stories that do not include their technology. The first collection of success stories and best practices will be rolled out through all of our channels during the 4th quarter of 2003. www.gilbane.com/technology_works.html
