The J. Boye vision
We live in a world of barriers; both real and psychological ones. But at J. Boye we insist that knowledge is to be shared, which is why we work to define those barriers ourselves.
We strive to liberate knowledge between digital professionals, vendors and clients, technologists and communication professionals in every sector. We want to break down barriers and mature the market to achieve best in class digital solutions.
We are creating a structured knowledge-sharing ecosystem where digital professionals learn and teach by sharing insights from personal experience.
We believe that one makes informed decisions when the vendor dialogue is on equal terms. This is why we will always keep a balanced and interest free network.
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 three 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
- Independent research & product evaluations
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 almost 5 years in Germany at a US-based digital agency in Munich and later at a CMS vendor in Frankfurt. In various roles from pre-sales, project management and product management, he enjoyed life on the other side of the table.
Upon returning to Denmark, he realized that customers were facing the same challenges with their digital projects and so Janus established the first knowledge-sharing group in 2004.
This became 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 for the smartest digital leaders.
