Engage to Succeed in the Mobile, Social, Digital Enterprise

Social media. Mobility. Context awareness. Non-traditional content. User experience. Consumerization. They're all poised to disrupt your organization, starting now. This confluence of accelerating trends will create not only unprecedented opportunities and new business models, but also unprecedented exposure and risk. You must understand and exploit these emerging trends now, or risk falling behind better-positioned competitors and/or the expectations of your customers and employees.

This year's Summit will help IT and business leaders with actionable advice and leading insights to turn complexity into opportunity. Only Gartner has the field-tested research, actionable insights and collective expertise to deliver critical information and insights on a global scale. With so much at stake for your organization, the Gartner Portals, Content & Collaboration Summit is more essential to its success than ever before.

Special Sessions

In addition to our comprehensive tracks, our Agenda also features several special sessions providing opportunities to learn from and interact with Gartner analysts, industry experts and peers, and top solution providers:

  • Keynote Sessions

    Typically presented by non-Gartner industry leaders, these plenary sessions are designed to be entertaining and thought-provoking.

  • Workshops

    Presented by Gartner or guest experts, these intimate workshops provide an opportunity to drill down on specific "how to" topics in an extended, small group environment. Sessions designed for end users only. Registration required.

  • End-User Case Studies

    Gartner invites a number of end users to personally present leading-edge case studies and answer questions.


    Real success stories

  • Analyst One-on-Ones
