Web Content Management – CM Pros Fall 2007 Summit – Register Early!



CM Pros Fall 2007 Summit: Web Content Management


The Fall 2007 CM Pros Summit will be held at the Westin Copley Place, Monday, November 26, 2007 in conjunction with the 4th Annual Gilbane Conference on Content Technologies Boston.

Event Explores Web Content Management Technologies and Their Impact on the Way We Work

Recent advances in content management tools – including Semantic Web technologies—are creating dramatic changes to the way organizations and their staffers work. Web content management software has made it possible for organizations to increase workplace efficiency through collaboration, eliminate unnecessary waste through automation, lower cost of production through process improvements and workflow routing, and, perhaps most importantly, make possible the delivery of relevant content with pinpoint accuracy, increasingly, on demand. When localization and translation enter the equation, these benefits grow exponentially.

Where can organizations find the knowledge needed to take advantage of these powerful, paradigm-shifting technologies? The CM Pros Fall 2007 Summit is an excellent starting place. The event will focus on the importance of web content management and the technologies that are quickly turning the web into a platform for the development of business solutions and information services. The Summit will feature presentations, workshops, and roundtable discussions aimed at helping to demystify web content management strategies, tools, standards, and technologies.

The event is divided into three tracks — attendees can mix and match sessions from each track, or attend sessions in just one track.

  • Members – $395 USD / $295 before September 30, 2007
  • Non-members – $495 USD / $395 before September 30, 2007 (includes free first year CM Pros membership)
