Federal web managers are facing enormous pressure to keep information technology and communications costs down, tighten their belts on bloated websites and improve citizen services. These demands may lead agencies to reconsider their current web content management solution and browse other platforms that could better align with their current priorities.

But when it comes to deciding between an open source or a proprietary web content management system there's a lot to think about. If an open source solution isn't really "free," what in-house costs may the agency be taking on? What should the agency know about the service contracts and content-ownership considerations of proprietary solutions?

FierceGovernmentIT editor, Editor David Perera will moderate a discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of open source and proprietary WCMs for government websites.

Featured Speakers:


Mike Kruger, New Media Director, Department of Commerce

Scott Liewehr, Lead Analyst and Senior Consultant in Gilbane's Web Content Management

Byran House, VP, Marketing, Acquia
