Gilbane Boston speaking proposals deadline

Update – We have received a phenomenal number of proposals – almost 50% more than last year. We have also had a huge number of requests for extensions, so we have extended the deadline for speaking proposals through next week – until May 28th. Don’t delay though, as our program committee is already pouring over the proposals we have.

Proposal Deadline: May 16th 28th, 2011

The Gilbane conference is all about helping organizations apply content, web and mobile technologies to communicate with their ecosystem of customers, employees, suppliers, partners, and the rest of the world in the most effective and efficient way possible.

This means understanding what technologies can and can’t do, what practices in applying them succeed or fail, and how to plan for changes in market and technology evolution. We bring together a diverse audience of technologists, marketers, strategists, business managers and analysts to learn, share, and debate best practices and strategies. Our conference is organized into four tracks so attendees in marketing, technology, a business unit, or an internal function will be able to plan a customized agenda.

To submit a proposal for a presentation or panel to contribute your expertise and experience, please see the topics below listed for the four tracks, then follow the instructions and guidelines for submitting proposals using our proposal submission form. Send any questions to speaking@gilbaneboston.com.

Adobe Announces Adobe Tag Manager for the Online Marketing Suite

Adobe Systems Incorporated announced Adobe Tag Manager for the Adobe Online Marketing Suite, powered by Omniture. This new solution provides a tag management framework for the entire Adobe Online Marketing Suite as well as for other digital marketing technologies. Capturing anonymous audience data is typically done using a tag (a small piece of JavaScript or HTML image call) placed in a piece of content or on a Web page. Various applications for capturing and taking action on analytics data usually require their own tags. The process of implementing and maintaining separate tags on a Web page and across partners such as analytics providers, site and content optimization vendors, ad servers, ad networks, affiliate networks and audience measurement firms often requires significant technical skills to implement or change and can become costly, time consuming and error prone. Adobe Tag Manager solves these industry problems with a tag management framework that serves as a tag container, housing the tags that an Adobe customer may require, including all Online Marketing Suite tags and third-party tags. While some customers may deploy a new standalone tag container, Adobe SiteCatalyst customers can deploy the tag container without having to change their existing SiteCatalyst page tag. The tags within the container are managed through an administrative user interface where the customer can insert or remove tags (from Adobe or other partners) without making changes to a website. http://www.adobe.com/

Publishing Disruptors On Stun

PW Daily, in an article “Montlake Romance Marks Tip of Amazon’s Expansion Into Publishing,” by Rachel Deahl (May 04, 2011), reports that Amazon is establishing an imprint—actually, a series of imprints—that pushes Amazon further along the path of becoming a publisher itself.  In fact, Amazon is far enough along this path to declare them a publisher, fait accompli.

The recent Amazon activity at least suggests a disintermediation of traditional publishers. I’ve addressed this topic in more depth in the blog entry, The Amazon Publisher
