Cambridge, MA , February 2, 2004 . The Gilbane Report and Lighthouse Seminars announced an unparalleled combination of expert faculty for the Gilbane Conference on Content Management to be held at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles , March 24-26, 2004.

The conference program is entirely focused on content management technologies, and includes 26 sessions and tutorials covering today’s most critical issues for businesses planning or implementing a content management strategy. The conference faculty consists of 40+ speakers carefully chosen for their expertise and communication capability, and is comprised of a combination of (75%) analysts, consultants, and enterprise executives, and (25%) technology suppliers.

IT and business executives from Sony Pictures, Boeing, Avnet, Halliburton, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Shimano, CMP, Meredith Corporation, EnCana, and others will share their experiences in successfully deploying content technology in their enterprises. Leading analysts and consultants from IDC, Ovum, Delphi , CMSWatch, the Gilbane Report, and many others, will provide insight on technology and market trends and tell you how to get started on a successful project. Representatives from leading technology suppliers including Vignette, Context Media, Microsoft, Adobe, Cardiff, RedDot, Interwoven, CrownPeak, and others, will debate architectural and technology approaches.

“Content management technologies need to be core components of most enterprise applications today.” said Frank Gilbane, Conference Chair, “But there is such a broad array of content technologies and a lack of experience integrating them that businesses have been rightfully cautious. That is why it is critical to share successful examples of content technology deployments, and to provide a well-balanced and critical analysis of the technologies and issues. By bringing together experts from all industry constituencies, we can ensure attendees are well-informed and prepared for success.”
