My JBoye09 Fix WCM Presentation

In the dime stores and bus stations,
People talk of situations,
Read books, repeat quotations,
Draw conclusions on the wall.
Some speak of the future,
My love she speaks softly,
She knows there’s no success like failure
And that failure’s no success at all
- LOVE MINUS ZERO/NO LIMIT

Just finished my “Inconvenient truths and unsolved industry challenges” session at JBoye Aarhus 09, with Janus Boye (the organiser) and Jarrod Gingras of CMS Watch. The session was fairly lively, and the #fixwcm hashtag was nice and busy. Over 300 tweets so far, and it’s still going strong. Keep the discussion going. If you’re at the conference, grab me for some beers over the next couple of nights.

You can download the slide deck as a 2MB PDF here:

The slides probably don’t make any sense without my commentary. In fact, they probably don’t make any sense with it.

I know a few people have blogged about the session. So far I’m aware of:

And thanks to the kind people that took the photos I stole without credit from Google. Sadly, I stole them from stolen sources so really don’t know who to credit. Finally, here’s a taster of some of the many tweets that came in:

  • bjfogg OH in #jboye09 session: If we can name things better, we can put standards around them #fixwcm
  • RussellNelson #fixwcm 1 happy cms customer in a room of 20 – that meets my definition of something that is broken
  • jameshoskins #fixwcm not all the buyers fault – WCM vendors need to focus on long standing pain points as much as those business winning new features
  • tednyberg Often times when companies switch #WCM often I think it’s a sign of dissatisfaction with the implementer, not necessarily the #CMS. #fixwcm
  • sigdestad #fixwcm Dare to say no to the customer – Good advices some times require courage
  • adrianmateljan Are the likes of @cmswatch diverting us from the real implementation issues? Perhaps #agencywatch would be more appropriate? #fixwcm
  • theresaregli @janusboye says a big part of education is finding people who are trusted #jboye09 #fixwcm
  • irina_guseva If you’re waiting for #WCM vendors to wake up and fix the problems, it is unrealistic, says @janusboye #fixwcm #jboye09
  • yuvalararat Guys the products are fine the way we implement and the way clients envision the system is the failure, Kill the sales guys #fixwcm
