Cambridge, MA, November 29, 2005. The Gilbane Report and Lighthouse Seminars today announced that the Gilbane Conference on Content Management Technologies San Francisco will take place April 24-26, 2006 at the Palace Hotel. Returning to San Francisco, the event is expanding its educational and conference programs to include in-depth discussions on enterprise search, automated publishing technologies for design-critical content, and how blogs and wikis fit into the enterprise. In addition, the event includes the new co-located Enterprise Digital Rights Management (DRM) Conference to cover content security issues.
This industry-analyst driven event brings together thought leaders and practitioners to provide attendees with actionable advice, techniques, best practices, and case studies to help successfully implement content technologies critical to their businesses. Proposals for papers are due on January 9th, but should be submitted as soon as possible. To apply visit: https://gilbane.com/speaker_guidelines.html
The Gilbane Conference on Content Management Technologies San Francisco will offer attendees with six tracks to choose from, including:
— Content Management Track (CM). This track is for attendees authoring, managing, or delivering content of any type, for everything from small websites, to knowledge management intranets, to large enterprise content initiatives.
— Content Technology Track (CT). These sessions are for IT or technically-oriented content or business managers. The material is a little more technical and looks at a select set of content-related technologies, some of which will be new to content managers.
— Enterprise Search Track (ES). Enterprise, desktop, and Internet search all have an important role to play in organizations as technologies integrated with content management systems, or other enterprise systems and as applications in their own right. This track will help attendees understand where search technology fits in projects and IT strategies.
— Automated Publishing for Marketing Track (AP). This track is designed for content managers who need to manage marketing content. This expanded track will focus on design-critical documents used in marketing and publishing that require an entirely new level of sophistication to meet the needs of design and branding professionals.
— Blog & Wiki Track (BW). Blog and wiki technology are rapidly finding their way into enterprises for collaboration, authoring, knowledge management, and in some cases, even light content management applications. This new track will look at how they are, and how they can be, used in organizations.
— Case Studies Track (CS). This track presents and examines case studies for all kinds of content-oriented applications and is supported by the Gilbane Report Content Technology Works Program. The emphasis is on all aspects of successful content-oriented implementations.
In addition to the educational and conference sessions is the Demonstration Pavilion, a forum that hosts 70+ content technology suppliers to demonstrate their latest products and features.
“We are constantly working to develop an event that will educate attendees on both universally adopted and new enterprise content technologies that ultimately help support organizations’ businesses,” said Frank Gilbane, Conference Chair. “This year we have greatly expanded our conference sessions based upon input from the end-user community. As more and more companies are recognizing, Enterprise DRM is complementary to enterprise content management and critical to corporate content strategies. We are very pleased to have Bill Rosenblatt, the pre-eminent expert in this field, join us to organize and chair our new Enterprise DRM conference.”
“DRM has taken hold in the entertainment industry, but the technology turns out to be really useful in corporate and other enterprise settings for protecting sensitive documents and enforcing information usage policies,” said Bill Rosenblatt, the Enterprise DRM Conference Chair. “I am thrilled to be working with Frank Gilbane to produce the first ever Enterprise DRM Conference in conjunction with the Gilbane Conference on Content Management Technologies. Attendees will get a real feel for this strategic technology, its business benefits, and how it fits into today’s enterprise content infrastructure.”
Conference sessions include:
— Enterprise DRM and Content Management: Technology Integration and Case Studies
— Mobile Devices and Content Security
— Content Security and Inter-Enterprise Collaboration
— Financial Services Applications for Enterprise DRM
— Enterprise DRM and IT Security Architectures
— Document Security for Small Businesses
