Talking About the Summit
"As content management technologies mature, organizations raise their expectations for delivering solutions that incorporate rich media with the new Web 2.0 technologies," says Frank Gilbane, President & CEO of Gilbane Group, Inc.. "The CM Pros Summits provide high-value opportunities for well-informed content management professionals to share their experiences and expertise while empowering attendees with real world content management knowledge critical to successful implementations. CM Pros is dedicated to supporting the content management community and the Summits provide a unique forum for members to develop a critical body of knowledge. We are pleased to support the CM Pros Summits alongside our conferences. This year's theme complements our program and the growing interest of conference attendees in delivering dynamic content."

Designed to support business leaders as they grapple with the business drivers and technical issues of managing and delivering dynamic content, the CM Pros Spring 2008 Summit addresses the growing requirement for content management solutions to dynamically deliver rich media and increase the interactive user experience. The Spring Summit offers presenters and attendees a program of eight interactive sessions, keynote presentation, panel discussions, vendor demonstrations, networking opportunities and CM Pros Town Hall meeting.

"Intelligent content reuse across multiple channels provides a continual challenge to content management practitioners. They must not only concern themselves with delivering multiple media types in multiple packages across the enterprise but also, addressing the unique needs of social networking, globalization and governance," said Linda Burman, President of the CM Pros Board of Directors and CEO of L A Burman Associates Inc. "That's why Quiz the Experts was developed. Summit attendees can quiz experts with real-world strategic and tactical experience about these challenges."
