Social. Mobility. Context awareness. Nontraditional content. User experience. Consumerization. This confluence of trends is creating unprecedented opportunities but also unprecedented exposure and risk.
This year's Gartner Portals, Content & Collaboration Summit provided attendees the opportunity to learn how to exploit these trends now, as to not fall behind better positioned competitors. The Gartner PCC Summit delivered the tools and insights needed to tap into unprecedented portals, content and collaboration opportunities. Disruptive trends are yielding an array of business-critical imperatives: Deliver secure access across a widening range of devices. Mine and leverage nontraditional content. Use social software to drive efficiency and innovation. Exploit context-aware computing.
This summit represented the single most important event in the portals, content and collaboration space, where IT and business leaders gathered to learn from the latest Gartner research and interact with 24+ Gartner analysts, peers and solution leaders. We had a great week in San Diego, and we were able to experience new research and innovative thinking in a variety of session formats that drilled down to some of the most critical industry topics and trends.
