Portals, Content & Collaboration Summit

Connect for Success

Today's business leaders face many competing demands for their time, resources and attention. In 2009, they do not have luxury of doing everything for everyone. They need to hold the line on costs through discipline and focus while succeeding in the marketplace through innovation, customer engagement and exemplary service.

The 2009 Gartner Portals, Content & Collaboration Summit will help business and IT leaders to "Connect for Success", by exploring how portals, content, and collaboration tools and technologies are being used to connect people, markets, processes, and information flows across companies, geographies and communities.

In a year that calls for pragmatic strategies that deliver real, demonstrable value, this summit offers practical advice for managing information to reduce costs, boost productivity and foster innovation. It's an event that can provide a holistic view of all three workplace-enabling technologies to ensure your initiatives connect efficiently and effectively. In addition, because tough times call for greater justification, we focus on how to demonstrate ROI from these technologies, how the downturn can be a driver for their adoption, and how to team with business partners for maximum success.

Connect with the best in the industry. Join leading-edge Gartner analysts, keynote presenters, industry panelists and your fellow practitioners as we discuss the most effective ways to bring your enterprise together across all fronts - people, partners and information - and use workplace technology to drive business value. Your summit takeaways will include strategies, tools, insights and peer experiences to inform sound decisions. (opens in new tab)
