The Gilbane Group and Lighthouse Seminars, today announced that the 2008 CM Pros U.S. Spring Summit will take place on June 17to coincide with the fourth Annual Gilbane San Francisco Conference which is June 18-20 at the Westin Market Hotel in San Francisco ( The CM Pros Summit offers attendees an in-depth forum for discussing the business drivers and technical issues of managing and delivering dynamic content.

Content Management Systems are viewed by many as being comprised of three predominant components: acquisition, management, and delivery. This summit will empower attendees with tangible and tactical real world solutions for the delivery component of content management.

"The Summit program focuses on content management delivery and the increasing demands of content presentation,” said Andrew Wilcox, CM Pros Technology Director and Summit Program Manager. “We have packed a one-day program with sessions that will deliver practical, real-world solutions and provide attendees with a competitive industry edge. The program includes 'Quiz the Experts', a lively game show format offering attendees the opportunity to ask questions of industry experts, and introduces the 'Use Case Challenge' where CMS vendors demonstrate their solutions for publishing content from one source to multiple channels.”

The CM Pros Summit includes users, practitioners and vendors of every aspect of content and digital asset management including: information architecture, usability, implementation, metadata and taxonomy, search, change management, software and tools. At the CM Pros Summit, speakers and attendees will:

  • Leverage best practices for dynamic delivery
  • Hear the latest research, case studies, and best practices
  • Share experiences with others and learn from peers

  • Identify next steps in content management implementations
  • Collaborate for solutions. Meet with partners, suppliers, and potential customers

Keynoting the summit is Steve Powers, Senior Analyst with Forrester Research. Enterprises are increasingly using rich internet applications (RIA) frameworks - such as Ajax, JavaFX, Flex, and Silverlight - to provide more interactive and dynamic customer experiences on their Web sites, and this has prompted many to question their investments in Web content management. In this session Steve will address how usage of RIAs may force organizations to re-think Web content management strategies.

“We are extremely pleased that the CM Pros Summit will take place in conjunction with our annual conference in San Francisco,” said Frank Gilbane, Chair of the Gilbane Conferences. “Partnering with CM Professionals only increases the value we offer attendees in providing actionable information on current content management technologies that attendees can implement immediately.”
