iPad Pro as Post-PC Game Changer
Sat, Nov 14th 2015 3:13p   Alan Hamilton
Can the iPad Pro be the Post-PC era game changer? The latest incarnation of the iPad is certainly big, certainly powerful and certainly capable of being many things to many people, but will it act as the device which defines the “Post PC era”? I think it has a chance, for several reasons. The PC-era, of which we are still living for the most part, is still defined by several key concepts. The first of these is a filing system where we manage our files. A system of filing was original

IBM Connections a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant….again
Fri, Oct 30th 2015 4:35a   Alan Hamilton
Gartner Magic Quadrant Gartner’s report, available here, highlights that IBM, Microsoft and Jive are the clear leaders in the enterprise social software market. While I work for IBM, the following is my opinion on what that means to you as an organisation who might be looking to implement such a system. On the surface the three systems appear to present broadly the same features, but in fact each have their strengths and weaknesses within their product set.  Gartner highlights Connections

Integrating LibreOffice with IBM Connections Cloud (Reboot)
Mon, Oct 26th 2015 3:45p   Alan Hamilton
OK this is a bit of a reboot of a blog post I published back in 2013 where I showed how to connect LibreOffice with IBM Connections and treat it as a CMIS repository.  My good friend and colleague Maurice Teeuwe fired me over an update to my blog post which highlights how to do it for LibreOffice 5.0.x. For those using a Mac or Linux who don’t have a plugin as-such for IBM Connections in their word processor or spreadsheet then integrating LibreOffice this way gives you an easy way to ope

IBM Named the Worldwide Market Share Leader in Enterprise Social Networks for 6th Consecutive Year by IDC
Mon, Aug 24th 2015 11:52a   Alan Hamilton
Surely being voted SIX TIMES in a row as the worldwide market share leader is one of the best reasons why, if you are considering moving your business into the 21st century of communications and collaboration, you should be using IBM Connections and Connections Cloud? Our competitors would have commercials running on TV, posters at every stadium, in every airport and basically in your face telling you that they were the best.  I think IBM prefers to let people come to their own conclusions, gui

Strategy, not Technology, Drives Digital Transformation
Thu, Aug 20th 2015 3:20p   Alan Hamilton
Digital transformation is a hot topic these days.  The world of e-commerce, e-business, whatever you want to call it, is maturing.  Organisations have file servers, intranets, mobile devices, security concerns, firewalls, on-line presences on Facebook, Twitter, and so on.  Yet with all this technology we still don’t see the kind of up tick in business performance we were promised.  Why? There’s a really interesting read over at the MITSloan review which, in summary, says, that w

Working in a Browser at Last!
Wed, Aug 19th 2015 11:32a   Alan Hamilton
It seems like the day has finally come.  I think it has taken about ten or more years, but it has now arrived, from what I can tell.  It’s the day, in fact the week so far, that I have worked exclusively in a web browser.  No client software, no productivity apps installed – all in Safari on my Mac. For years the promise of working in a light application such as a browser was dangled in front of us as a solution to the bloated applications we laboriously install on our laptops.
