It’s Like Facebook For Work. Wait It Is Facebook For Work
Fri, Jan 16th 2015 10:40a   Alan Lepofsky
On Jan 14th, Facebook officially announced their much rumoured Facebook at Work offering. This private version of the popular social network is designed to provide employees a place to collaborate securely with their colleagues. This sounds like a great idea, if it were still 2010. In the late 2000s a shift began taking place that was commonly referred to as Enterprise 2.0, or E20. In E20 companies began adopting "social tools" such as blogs, wikis and activity streams to enable employ

Happy 25th Birthday Lotus Notes
Thu, Nov 27th 2014 12:00p   Alan Lepofsky
My career in technology began in May 1993 when I was a coop student at IBM Canada.

Image taken from Mat Newman's blog. It's amazing how pioneering Notes was in creating the industry that we today call ‪"social business." I, along with many of my friends and colleagues owe our careers to Lotus Notes. Let's l

It's not a play on universe, nor a song or poem, nor related to Lotus "Notes" making up a verse! One of the most significant things about IBM Verse is the level of attention it ha

Mon, Nov 17th 2014 9:40p   Alan Lepofsky
For the last few years many software vendors in the enterprise social market have explained what their product does by using the analogy "It's like Facebook at work". Well, now it appears Facebook themselves will be getting into the game by actually offering, Facebook At Work. At the moment there are few official details from Facebook about the product such as when will it be available, what will it cost, what will it do, etc. Below are a few of my thoughts about the potential Facebook At

Analytics Is At the Centre Of IBM’s Future
Wed, Nov 12th 2014 10:50p   Alan Lepofsky
Today was Day 1 of IBM's Analyst Insight Summit. This exclusive event brings together the top industry analysts from around the world to meet with the heads of IBM's software division. If I had to sum up the event in one word, it would be analytics. IBM has a vast software portfolio that covers a variety of topics, but at the centre of all of them is IBM's message around using data to gather insights that can lead to better decision making. While IBM has several technologies in the an
