About J. Boye
The J. Boye vision
At J. Boye we are passionate about sharing knowledge.
Between digital professionals, vendors and clients, technologists and communications professionals in every sector, we want to break down the barriers and mature the market to achieve best in class digital solutions.
We combine experience, insight and trends from our members, with our expert knowledge and research, in order to give the best possible advice.
We create a structured knowledge-sharing ecosystem where digital professionals learn and teach through sharing experiences with other competent digital professionals.
We believe that practitioners make the best, most objective decisions when the pressure of vendors is absent. And this is why a core value of J. Boye is vendor neutrality.
At the same time, we know that vendors want to make the best possible products for their clients. However, the dialogue needs to be on equal terms. Read more about the team.
How do we do this?
We do this by bringing people together to facilitate that knowledge sharing so that they can learn from experience. We do so independently of vendor interests and in four different ways:
- Knowledge sharing peer-groups – these groups focus on different areas including content strategy, digital communication, web project management, collaboration, intranet and many more
- Annual Web & Intranet conferences
- Consulting on a range of issues, including vendor selection, strategy development and project management
We want to provide a neutral knowledge-sharing platform, enabling clients to make the right decisions and the vendors to tailor their products to individual client needs.
By bringing the knowledge of our network into action, we believe that we can help you get a head-start in the digital future of tomorrow.
How did it start?
Before founding J. Boye in 2003, Janus Boye worked as an IT-consultant. He was the only one responsible for large and complex projects and therefore lacked the opportunity to share his experiences with anybody.
Realising that former colleagues of his were facing the same challenges, Janus established the first knowledge-sharing group.
This was the start of the J. Boye network, which today spans Europe and North America. With annual conferences in Philadelphia and Aarhus, Denmark and groups in more than a dozen countries, our network has become a truly global community.
