eZ Conference 2016: Who's Speaking?

The eZ Conference will host more than 20 distinguished speakers, including business and technology leaders, digital transformation specialists, marketers, and software developers.

The speakers that make up the two-day agenda include the likes of Paul Boag, an industry leader in user experience and digital strategy; Yann Gourvennec, CEO and Founder of the digital marketing agency Visionary Marketing; Mark Brincat, Chief Technology Officer of The Economist; and Dietmar Schantin, Founder of the Institute for Media Strategies.

As for the discussions themselves, the conference is set to cover the following:

  • eZ and the evolution of CMS: where are we today and where are we headed tomorrow?
  • Pitfalls of digital transformation and how to avoid them
  • Adapting to the digital economy: how to become a catalyst for organizational change
  • Content marketing 2016-2020: how to raise your content above the surface
  • Why is application performance so important to your business and what can you do about it?
  • Content as a Service: Positioning eZ as the digital hub for the enterprise
  • Customizing and extending eZ: the eZ Platform UI, SOLR search and many extensions

Further to the two-day conference starting on the October 5th, there will also be a pre-conference on the 4th, where attendees can access a full day of developer training. eZ’s Professional Services team will be on hand to provide some insights into customizing and extending eZ Platform and eZ Enterprise in valuable ways.

Aleksander Farstad, the CEO and Co-founder of eZ Systems, is expecting the conference to be a big hit:

“We are very excited to return to Paris for this year’s eZ Conference.

Our annual summit is the best opportunity for members of the eZ Community to get together and learn from each other. It’s also a great chance for people new to our ecosystem to discover our software and hear from many of the talented people who use it to deliver engaging digital experiences.”
