The Gilbane Conference opens each of its events with a panel of content technology and market experts that is completely interactive (i.e., no presentations). The experts include industry analysts, consultants, enterprise IT and business senior managers, and technologists. This years Boston conference has a cross section of different categories of content technology vendors, including a large ECM vendor, a mid-tier second generation vendor, a hosted CM vendor, an open source ECM vendor, and an infrastructure supplier. Each of these types of vendor could provide some, or all, of an organizations content and information management needs, but how do you decide which? Which of these approaches point towards the future and which will be legacy approaches? Do they complement each other or compete? What do they have in common? What do each of these technology experts think the future of content management and content-oriented applications will look like? This will prove to be a lively and educational debate!

This annual 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. The topics to be covered in-depth in the conference program will include:

  • Web Content Management (WCM)
  • Enterprise Content Management (ECM)
  • Collaboration, Enterprise Wikis & Blogs
  • Enterprise Search & Information Access Applications
  • Enterprise Digital Rights Management (eDRM)
  • Automated Publishing

The event includes:

  • 34 sessions and panel discussions
  • 4 pre-conference tutorials
  • Technology demonstration area with more than 50 of the leading vendors
  • Special events
  • Co-located with the Content Management Professionals Association (CM Pros) Fall Summit

We have once again built a program anchored by a cross-section of industry thought leaders that provides independent analysis and balanced market perspectives that cant be found at any other event, said Frank Gilbane, Conference Chair. “We are focused on hosting an educational conference that includes everything IT strategists and project teams need to know in a hype-free environment that offers insights into existing and upcoming technologies necessary to implement content-oriented applications.
