While preparing for my upcoming session at #RSuiteUC16, it struck me how much fun I’ve been having with technology lately. While I’ve loved pushing RSuite CMS to new limits for a long time now (we started development way back in 2004), today we find ourselves in an exciting place.
We’ve reached a place with both the RSuite technology and our customers where we can really get serious about going beyond basics of content management.
Possible…and now practical
In the past, some features and functionality in CMS may have been possible, but they simply weren’t practical. Customers were busy trying to establish direction, establish infrastructure, and change culture. They didn’t have head space or time for more advanced functionality. And technology integrations and customizations were not always friendly.
As I look around today, everything has gotten easier. The CMS user base (and management) today just seem to “get it” more; they know what they want to achieve and are far more adaptable to change. At the same time, technology – RSuite and other software – has become increasingly “out of the box,” which is simplifying everything. Projects are easier, empowering organizations to leap ahead to those cool new applications that can really change their business.
So that’s the backdrop for my session at #RSuiteUC16. We’re going to get people excited about the possible and practical in a quick look at the future, including:
- Previews of functionality that has been recently completed or is coming soon, like
- Out of the box workflow reporting
- Easier ways for infrequent CMS users to access RSuite
- Browser-based editors that users love
- Content exploration driven by semantic metadata
- A sneak peek at our product roadmap, including improvements to scalability and security.
- An understanding of how we’re setting priorities (and how you can get involved).
What’s really inspirational about events like ours is that they get you to lift your head up. For at least a day, nobody is asking you to put out fires, so you get the precious freedom to actually think about the longer term and where your business is headed. You also get to meet and learn from people like you at other organizations – and share your own lessons learned.
And we get to show you how RSuite can help… <grin>
