Wednesday

Product Lab A
11:00 - 12:00 Jive Software

Knowledge Infusion Case Study: Driving Net New Revenue With Social Media

Creating accessible web content is all about making it easier for diverse audiences to access your content. Traditionally, accessibility has focused on improving the web experience for disabled users - about 20% of the population in the US. Disabled people often face the same web usability barriers as another rapidly growing group – people who access the web on mobile devices. Fortunately, sites which follow accessibility best practices are more likely to reach both of these groups. With the right tools, even non-technical WCM end users can easily create content that is accessible for both mobile and impaired users.
Speaker: Michael Fromin, Ephox Director of Products

Teaching the Elephant to Dance: How Enterprises are Mastering Complexity to Maximize Profits.

Most enterprises have a headache. An elephant-sized headache. They need to manage the increasing number of channels through which customers approach them. It is a huge challenge; but also a great opportunity. They are asking themselves these basic questions:

  • How can we maximize the value of our content?
  • How can we move services online to reduce our costs?
  • How personal should personalization be?
  • How can we ensure consistency across all channels and touchpoints?

  • CoreMedia’s powerful Web Content Management system enables enterprises to create a truly engaging experience across all touchpoints. We’ve just published a paper on “Managing multi-touchpoint communications”.

    Product Lab G
    11:40 - 12:40 FatWire

    Use Rich Media to Enhance and Extend Your Brand Online: Case Study and Best Practices

    Delivering an engaging web experience is key to establishing a compelling brand image online. It is no longer sufficient to use a web site as a channel for information covered in the company brochure or product catalog. A modern web site is essentially an interactive application that features not only text and images but also video and audio. Web site visitors expect to be entertained as much as they expect to be educated. They also want to share information and interact with other people online. In this product lab we will discuss success stories of a few global brands, such as RedBull and RealMadrid, using the FatWire platform to reinvent their brand online and deliver exceptional web experience to their customers. We will also be showing a live demo of the platform.
    Speaker: Dmitri Tcherevik, Chief Technology Officer, FatWire Software
