Something for #noemailday
Alan Hamilton    

Today is a special day for lots of reasons, not least because it’s the last time for a very long time that we’ll see a perfectly repeating date: 12/12/12.

It’s also No Email Day – a day when us social types use social networks, twitter and all other “social” communication methods to show that email is less useful these days for collaborating with our colleagues than other media available to us now.

With this in mind, I have prepared the attached which you might want to use for your desktop background or something similar. Enjoy.

IBM Verse – Connecting Me to We
Fri, Nov 21st 2014 10:17a   Alan Hamilton
IBM Verse fixes email to give you back your day. If you have been around the IBM software ecosystem this week, you probably couldn’t have missed our announcement about IBM Verse. IBM has been working to bring the world of social collaboration into a context where many of us still work – email. Most of us still use IBM Notes, Microsoft Outlook or some other email client as the primary place we work. We use it for filing, for storage, for search, for communicating and well, for being a [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm notes email enterprise facebook microsoft outlook twitter

Social Business Adoption 101
Mon, Nov 10th 2014 8:17a   Alan Hamilton
People often ask me how to get started with Social Business. As I have said before in this blog “social” is not a thing in itself. Its more of a state of mind. It’s part of the culture of your organisation. If your culture is that information is power then you need to recognise that the culture will get in the way of any attempts to improve sharing, re-use and and better communication of information. Assuming, however, you’re ready for “social”, IBM Connection [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm enterprise facebook twitter

Culture is not part of the game – it is the game
Mon, Oct 27th 2014 10:14a   Alan Hamilton
Lou Gerstner, pictured opposite, used to be the Chairman and CEO of IBM.  In his excellent book “Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance” there are many great lessons for anyone in business.  I came across recently, however, one particularly poignant quote related to the use of social collaboration in business.  We all recognise the need for the right culture to prevail in the organisation, but Mr Gerstner says: I came to see, in my time at IBM, that culture isn’t just one aspe [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm enterprise facebook network twitter

The Collaborative Commuters
Mon, Oct 13th 2014 3:12p   Alan Hamilton
“Being Social” is not a thing. It’s not something a business would want to do. In the same way as a business doesn’t have feelings, it doesn’t need to be social. It’s there to deliver something to someone – dividends to its shareholders, services to its citizens or aid to the people it is there to help. So why would “social” be something you would want in business? Let’s drop the word “social” for a minute and think about a new word – “collaborative”. Why would a bu [read] Keywords: collaboration connections archive email facebook ipod network office twitter

Embracing Corporate Communications with IBM Connections
Thu, Sep 18th 2014 5:15p   Alan Hamilton
Or how to avoid one of your employees writing a song about your company… One of the first uses many people consider for a social platform is corporate communications.  I mean the kind of top-down good-news story stuff that the senior management would want you to read and feel good about so that you’ll be […] [read] Keywords: connections ibm

Start small to build success with Social Business

Socializing Microsoft with IBM Connections
Thu, Aug 21st 2014 6:11a   Alan Hamilton
The title of this post is one which I borrowed from my colleague and friend, Omar Davison, who has (with some assistance from his colleagues) put together a very compelling and direct little video on how IBM Connections can bring a whole new dimension of collaboration to Microsoft SharePoint and Outlook: The point he makes […] [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm microsoft outlook sharepoint

Don’t expect to be social with your (closest) colleagues
Mon, Jul 7th 2014 6:11a   Alan Hamilton
You might think you’ve read that headline wrongly.  Surely the whole point of social business collaboration is to be social with your colleagues?  Yes, it is, but it depends on how close they are and which tools you are using.  Confused?  Read on. If you have a Facebook account and several members of your immediate […] [read] Keywords: collaboration facebook

How to move from Email to Social without moving at all
Wed, May 28th 2014 3:11p   Alan Hamilton
At work virtually all of us work with email. At present it is the default and defacto method of communication. We probably also all recognize its shortcomings when it comes to working together with other people. It is intended as a means of messaging primarily between two individuals but over time, of course, we get […] [read] Keywords: collaboration lotus email
