Gilbane Conference San Francisco! "Where Content Management Meets Social Media"
Your content is your business. As the lines between content technologies continue to blur, the business implications of your content strategies need to be crystal clear. You need to make your web content part of an integrated platform for customers, partners, and employees. You need to understand which social media outlets fit into your overall content and communication channels. And you have to hold down costs for content management and delivery in ways that don't slow down your company's ability to innovate and grow.
For 2009, the Gilbane Conference is more focused than ever on the business impact of content solutions that are here right now and ready to be implemented right now. Every program component is tied to the business issues surrounding your marketing, technical and enterprise content. We've taken the four major areas of how enterprises use Web and content technologies and organized them into tracks that make it easy for you to customize an agenda that meets your business objectives. Along the way you'll have direct interaction - including valuable one-on-one time - with our unique community of enterprise practitioners, analysts, consultants and solution providers. We hope you'll join us.
