CMS World Evolves at Gilbane San Francisco
Content management technology, evolving and morphing continually over the past decade, shows no signs of slowing down. (It’s like they say about the weather here in New England: give it a few minutes and it’ll change.)
You need either a CMS Sherpa to guide you through the morass of products, pitches, platforms and promises – or you need an event like the twice-yearly Gilbane Conference, whose spring conference hits next month in San Francisco. (For East Coasters, the Boston event usually hits right after Thanksgiving.)
If you’re looking for CMS and related tools as well as strategies for managing content, collaboration, social and other hot web topics, make your way to Gilbane May 18-20.
The CMS Myth is an official media sponsor – you get a $200 discount registering with code CMSMYTH. If you go, bring along our ultimate CMS mix tape to keep you company and set the mood.
And, congratulations to our colleague, Melissa Casburn, director of user experience at Connective DX, who was chosen to speak on “How to Mold the Customer Experience.” We’ll blog more about her presentation before the event.
The conference used to have a ponderous CMS tech slant; now it feels far more centered, with sessions targeted at marketers and social media types as much as the core CMS folks – not a bad thing. The keynote panelists include social media leader Jeremiah Owyang of the Altimeter Group and workplace researcher and author Dan Rasmus.
- Customers and Engagement
- Colleagues and Collaboration
- Content Technology
- Content Publishing
The conference has something for everyone involved in the web, and we can get behind anything that recognizes that CMS touches many diverse parts of web experience, marketing, technology, content strategy, social – and your overall business and marketing initiatives. We’ve said it before and it’s worth repeating: CMS isn’t just about the technology.
