2011 Main Conference Program

  

Gilbane Boston 2011 is all about helping organizations apply content, web and mobile technologies to communicate with their ecosystem of customers, employees, suppliers, partners, and the rest of the world in the most effective and efficient way possible.

This means understanding what technologies can and can't do, what practices in applying them succeed or fail, and how to plan for changes in market and technology evolution. We bring together a diverse audience of technologists, marketers, strategists, business managers and analysts to learn, share, and debate best practices and strategies. Our conference is organized into four tracks so attendees in marketing, technology, a business unit, or an internal function will be able to plan a customized agenda.

Conference sessions are organized by track. Session titles are linked to the schedule, and speakers are linked to their biographies, which include their blog links and twitter handles if they have supplied them. (This page will be updated daily with any additions or changes from now through the conference.) Track links:

Customers & Engagement Track (E)

Corporate websites are now the most important public face of an organization, and the best way to grow, and communicate with, a broader customer base. Successful sales and marketing now requires Web sites that can reach a global audience, a mobile audience, and an audience familiar with social media and used to richer media. Websites also need to be findable, accessible, engaging, real-time & responsive, and have accurate and timely information that is synchronized with other channels. This is a tall order, but it is what your customers expect, and what companies are building.

Track Designed For:
anyone responsible for marketing, business, or technical aspects of public facing websites, including, sales & marketing, digital marketing, brand managers, business units with P&L, Web strategists, IT, Web managers, business managers, digital media, e-commerce managers, content managers & strategists.

 

Customers & Engagement Track Sessions

E1. Track Keynote - Managing the Customer Experience from Prospect to Advocate. How Do We Get There From Here?
Wednesday, November 30, 1:30 - 2:30

Today's successful digital marketers recognize the need to deliver value in every interaction. They expect to learn more about their brand and its target audience(s) than they preach, and they value these newfound understandings, seeking to leverage them to forge new consumer relationships and deepen existing ones. The practices of Web Engagement have taught you to find ways to listen to your audience more closely and to respond with relevant, tailored content in order to move them along the engagement journey from mere awareness to intimate loyalty. But just as you are beginning to understand these concepts, the tide shifts even further toward Customer Experience Management, or the proactive management of all the customer interactions with the company from awareness and attraction to ordering, fulfillment, billing and support. Niche technologies are coming together and promising to deliver on these promises, but are they ready? Are you ready?

E2. The “New New” in Usability: B2B is Going Consumer
Wednesday, November30, 2:40 - 4:00

The recent explosion of mobile devices and apps, combined with the evolution of Web 2.0 and a younger work demographic have quickly raised the bar on usability expectations within the Enterprise. Corporate users of web sites and apps today compare their experiences to the likes of “consumer” products and services such as iPhone/iPad, Kayak, Google, Mint.com and a host of others. Today’s B2B (and B2C) marketers – burdened with stacks of other priorities – are now scrambling to meet these growing user expectations.

E3. Building an Integrated Marketing Campaign for the Digital World
Wednesday, November 30, 4:00 - 5:00

Many businesses practice traditional public relations, are aware of social media, and want to increase their presence using search marketing. But, most don't understand the importance of integrating all three to create successful marketing campaigns and do so without wasting time and money. They tend to take tactical approaches to managing their websites, social community spaces and multi-channel platforms by using niche tools and loose business practices to augment their tried and tested web content strategies. But as the requirement to socialize becomes a mainstream business imperative, is it time to evolve traditional practices? This session will teach attendees how to successfully unite PR, Social, and Search Marketing campaigns to create successful integrated marketing plans. It will also make the case for evolving from traditional web content management into social content management. The presenters will cite recent industry trends and successful B2B and B2C case studies.

E4. Day 2 Track Keynote: Content Strategy for Marketing
Thursday, December 1, 8:30 - 9:30

Everyone is a publisher today. The challenge for brand marketers in both B2B and B2C is that the brand story is "owned" by multiple players in the organization and that brands need great content for effectively almost all online communications. Can you drive social media without content? No. Can you drive SEO without great content? No. Content marketing strategist Joe Pulizzi will share the latest research from the Content Marketing Institute on how brand marketers are using and allocating resources to content marketing, as well as share case studies from small and large brands about how they are developing content marketing strategies that generate passionate fans and subscribers to grow their businesses. Attendees will be able to take away a number of tactics that can be executed immediately to integrate into their content plans.

E5. Thinking Beyond the Website - Mobile and Other Channels Deserve Your Attention Too
Thursday, December 1, 9:40 - 10:40

As phones and other mobile devices get "smarter", so must marketers get smarter about their multi-channel strategies. It used to be acceptable for brands to focus on their desktop browser experience, and then, at some point, dumb them down by removing flash, videos, and all the other extras so that prospective customers could view the website on their phones. But this strategy is no longer viable. The Splinternet Age brings not only smart phones, but also tablets, mobile applications, social sites, and wifi-ready televisions just to name a few. As more and more consumers seek to experience your brand through these mediums, having a strong multi-channel strategy is essential.

E6/C7. Social Matters
Thursday, December 1, 11:40 - 12:40

With the maturation of social media, we are surrounded by calls to link our real-life activities to their online complements. In your role as a web communicator, how can you do this in a way that serves both your needs and the needs of your audiences? How can you activate the ambient intimacy and latent connectivity around you to engage your audiences with relevant content? How can you bridge online community with off-line community? Also, how can the role of a Community Manager further your engagement with visitors, and help turn content into valuable conversations? How can they help to engage, promote and monitor your communities so that you are building valuable and meaningful relationships that benefit both your company and your customers.

E7/T11. One Project, Three Strategies: What Teams Need to Know About Design, Development and Content Strategies for Content-driven Initiatives
Thursday, December 1, 2:00 - 3:20

The tensions of the quality triangle have shifted from Quality, Cost and Speed to Content, Technology, and User Experience. Getting these strategies to mesh well on a project gets tricky, particularly when layered over the usual constraints. There will be no fist fights, but definitely lively debate as three seasoned practitioners, one from each discipline, come together to elucidate the strategy of their disciplines, advocate for the important aspects on a project, and figure out how to make them play well together in the project sandbox.

E8. Measuring the Results of Customer Engagement
Thursday, December 1, 3:30 - 4:30

Who is visiting your website? How relevant is our marketing to our visitors' needs? Were and how we can improve marketing for greater bottom line impact? How can we hold social media accountable for return on investment? In this presentation, attendees will learn how to use engagement analytics to identify campaigns, landing pages, and website areas that create the greatest bottom line impact. (And just as importantly, which aren't living up to their potential.) We will also identify some critical Key Performance Indicators for social media campaigns. Real world examples will be used to bring context to the discussion in this ultra-informative session.

E9. SEO & Site Search
Thursday, December 1, 2:00 - 3:20

Digital marketers are keenly aware that more and more of their web traffic is coming from search engines, and that the behaviors of the visitors once they reach their sites are increasingly focused on search. To address the former, brands are spending a lot of time and money identifying and optimizing keywords for SEO, and they are getting mixed results. As for the latter, observant organizations understand that visitors are 2 to 3 times more likely to convert from a site search page than any other page, and they strive to incorporate recent innovations in search and navigation to address the evolving expectations of visitors. In this session, attendees will learn about recent innovations in each of these fields as well as how to address these challenges moving forward.

E10. Reaching a Global Audience
Thursday, December 1, 3:30 - 4:30

Translation and localization of a brand's web presence is often treated as an afterthought. Outsell Gilbane refers to this as Language Afterthought Syndrome, and it is a phenomenon that is plaguing even the largest global brands on the planet. But effective digital marketers have learned to engage their global audience by including localization and user experience requirements in the core of their strategic planning, and they are rewarded with some significant advantages and benefits. This session focuses on addressing the key challenges of managing the global content supply chain and delivering an international user experience.

E11/T12. How Does an Organization Manage Hundreds of Sites?
Thursday, December 1, 9:40 - 10:40

Traditionally, organizations of all sizes have managed their Web properties in a largely ad-hoc manner. However, as the sophistication and impact of the organizational Web presence broadens, it is necessary to adopt a more mature approach to both Web Operations and web content management. This session will discuss the important aspects of web operations, from strategy to governance and execution. It will also take an in-depth look at a case study of the largest multi-tenant implementation of public-facing websites in the healthcare industry.

Colleagues & Collaboration Track (C)

Well-designed internal websites for collaboration on projects or operational activities, whether in the form of intranets, portals, blogs, or wikis are critical for supporting modern corporate missions. Social software has reignited interest in enhancing employee collaboration and knowledge sharing, and the right use of social software, alone or combined with an intranet or portal, is a competitive requirement. Employees already use it, and expect it, and can be much more productive with it. While some business use-cases are obvious, companies are a long way from having enough experience to know how best to integrate and deploy different types of social software to best support business requirements.

Track Designed For:
anyone responsible for internal websites, portals, collaboration & knowledge sharing, including, knowledge managers, product managers, project managers, IT, departments (R&D, support, mfg, financial, legal, authoring, etc.).

 

Colleagues & Collaboration Track Sessions


C1. Track Keynote - Is Enterprise Social Networking and Collaboration a Game Changer or Time Waster?
Wednesday, November 30, 1:30 - 2:30

The advent of the social enterprise has sparked heated debates about whether social tools are a boon to enterprise collaboration and innovation, or a time suck for employees. At the same time, vendors have quickly launched a variety of specialized tools spawning further debate about whether such tools are even necessary. This session has a panel of social tool experts making the case for social tools to a diehard skeptical moderator. First, they will attempt to make the case for social tools in the enterprise, and second, why enterprises need to adopt new tools, not recycle existing ones to gain maximum benefit.

C3. Liberating Collaboration and Social Software for Knowledge Management
Wednesday, November 30, 4:00 - 5:00

Knowledge management and social software often occupy different niches or spaces in an enterprise, but in truth, they are, or at least should be joined at the hip. In this session, participants will learn how to modernize current approaches to strengthening the quality and effectiveness of knowledge management capabilities through the application of social software. Participants will learn better approaches to uncovering knowledge assets; how to apply social software and collaborative frameworks to improve knowledge capture; and how to improve the quality of knowledge assets.

C4. From Collaboration to Business Transformation: Expanding the role of Enterprise Social Networks
Thursday, December 1, 8:30 - 9:30

Effective collaboration initiatives often focus on process, information and technology. However the advent of enterprise social networking has expanded the scope of what’s possible, and it goes far beyond mere collaboration. This session will examine architectural building blocks that enable social networking, common practices to help overcome adoption hurdles, and governance and change management approaches. It will also contain a presentation of the work of an AIIM task force that has been building use cases and best practices relative to social transformation for 3 key value chains in any organization: 1) sales and marketing; 2) product design and innovation; and 3) knowledge worker creativity and productivity. This session will demonstrate why the time has come to move discussions of social business from the abstract benefits of "collaboration" to a richer focus on process and value chain transformation.

Thursday, December 1, 9:40 - 10:40

Social networks and tools have arrived in a big way, but many business leaders are skeptical and as a result, social initiatives are often too limited in scope. This session provides the tools to frame a business case for enterprise social tools, measure impacts, and ensure not only adoption, but also real impact on business performance. Participants will gain insight into how to transform ambitions to improved collaboration innovation into hard, fact-based business cases that resonate with corporate managers and convert skeptics to converts.

Social enterprise initiatives are complex and involve multifaceted challenges. It can be difficult for implementers to know what they should focus on and what they can safely ignore or downplay, often bogging down or even dooming initiatives. A panel of social enterprise experts and practitioners will reveal their lists of critical, “must-get-right” factors in implementing social enterprise tools. If you are implementing social networking and collaboration in your enterprise, failure is not an option and this panel can help ensure your success in social initiatives.

C8/T8. Successful SharePoint Adoption Strategies
Thursday, December 1, 11:40 - 12:40

SharePoint has become an industry unto itself, but in many enterprises, it plays only a “bit player” role, supporting basic collaboration and content management, and leaving money on the table with respect to its true potential. This session is about turning SharePoint into a powerful tool that is integrated into the business workflow fabric of enterprises, driving adoption, value, and business impact. It contains practical advice for ensuring adoption and use as well as maximum value in structuring and managing content, metadata, and taxonomies.

T2. Get Ready for Big Data
Wednesday, November 30, 2:40 - 4:00

Big data has a lot of buzz these days, and while the term is sometimes thrown around a little too readily, there is something big and important going on that is already starting to fundamentally change the way we manage information. One characteristic of big data that everyone seems to agree on, is that big data is too much for traditional data management systems to manage, at least on their own. Big data technologies were largely developed by Google, Amazon, Yahoo, and Facebook because nothing existed that could manage the scale and speed their applications required, but all organizations face data scale challenges. There are now a number of open source and commercial "NoSQL" systems based on big data technologies such as Hadoop. IT and marketing need to understand how big data affects their strategies.

HTML5 promises lots of important new capabilities, but it is an ongoing development is scheduled to become a W3C recommendation in 2014. Many organizations are already using HTML5 for app development, but should they? Is it too soon?

It just doesn't pay to ignore these issues until your shiny new system is ready to be switched on. Unfortunately, this happens too often, either because it is put off as an unpleasant detail, or is just plain intimidating.

T7. What is the Proper Scope of a CMS?
Thursday, December 1, 2:00 - 3:20

It used to be that content management systems were mainly the glue that connected authoring and web publishing in a disciplned way. Today's CMSs are often platforms that include multiple digital marketing applications, complex data integration, and social media functionality. There is nothing inherently good or bad about this evolution, but it does make life more difficult for all parties. What should enterprises expect to get as part of a CMS? How do analysts decide what category a CMS belongs in? How do vendors describe themselves when basic CMS functions are outnumbered by the marketing features of their system?

Cross-channel publishing has been a goal of many organizations for years, but it is no longer an option - and not just about Web, print and the occasional additional digital channel as an afterthought or experiment. Smartphones, the iPad and other tablets, e-book readers, other devices, and even “in-product” displays need to be considered. In addition to more channels, there are more media types and content formats to manage. Not to mention whether/when to build a mobile app vs. a browser-based application. Dynamic publishing is a key business requirement for all organizations, whether commercial business or consumer publisher, or enterprise marketer or information manager.

Track Designed For:
those responsible for content creation, management, and multi-channel/multi-lingual publishing, IT and others that need to learn about publishing technology because of new mobile and multi-channel demands, including corporate or commercial publishers, content managers, digital asset managers, documentation managers, and information architects.

 

Cross-channel Publishing Track Sessions

P1. The New Normal of Extreme Cross-media Publishing
Wednesday, November 30, 1:30 - 2:30

Today's real-time, multi-media, cross-media publishing requirements are a far cry from just a few years ago when it was a struggle just to publish to a website in addition to print. What we sometimes call "extreme cross-media publishing" is not easy, but the demand for it is the new normal. This session will help you calibrate expectations on what can be done and what it takes.

P2. iPad Publishing and UI Design
Wednesday, November 30, 2:40 - 4:00

With smartphones and tablets exploding in usage, publishers are racing to deliver content to new types of users who are expecting rich, interactive experiences. Yet publishers are often dependent on third parties who can create these apps for them. This session delves into how some of the standard publishing apps work, and how developers create some of the more advanced features that users are demanding.

P3. Why Credible Content is Key to Monetization
Wednesday, November 30, 4:00 - 5:00

While digital channels expand both the opportunities and ease of reaching new customers, the volume and sometimes questionable quality of digital content can make it difficult to get the desired return on digital advertising. Personalization alone does not address the credibility challenge. High quality contextual content is critical to convincing potential customers to click. Marketers will benefit from the techniques shared in this session.

Thursday, December 1, 8:30 - 9:30

Digital Asset Management has always been much more complicated than it sounds. The proliferation of publishing channels adds more complexity, and more cost.

P5/T6. Don't be Scared of Content Migration - But be Very Prepared!
Thursday, December 1, 11:40 - 12:40

Migrating content from one system to another, or converting content from one format to another for publishing are often the gotchas that throw a project off schedule or budget. It just doesn't pay to ignore these issues until your shiny new system is ready to be switched on. Unfortunately, this happens too often, either because it is put off as an unpleasant detail, or is just plain intimidating. Best to learn what you are in for in advance form our two speakers in this session.
