Finding a web content management system (CMS) is easy - you probably get calls from a "leading" vendor every week. But selecting the right CMS for your organisation AND finding a good partner is not easy. Why? Because you are navigating through dangerous waters with multiple stakeholders and complicated technologies.

In this session vendor-neutral analyst at J. Boye, Peter Sejersen will dissect the process and provide a realistic timeline of the various steps needed. He will outline how you:
* Initiate the process
* Write incomprehensive and usable proposal material
* Shortlist vendors and systems
* Evaluate incoming proposals
* Decide on a winner
* Start the implementation process

This presentation will draw on real-life customer cases as well as vendor-neutral consulting and research. You will leave with a practical guide on how to select a CMS without unnecessary detours. You will be surprised: select a new CMS really doesn't have to be that complicated if you follow this simple advice - and use common sense!
