The Future Of Work Is Now
Alan Lepofsky    

I've been through several "eras of change" at work. I witnessed the shift from mainframes to client server applications. I witnessed email become the core communication tool for business, then seen it challenged by instant messaging, blogs, wikis and now social networks as they are each heralded as "the new way to work." I've watched the web become an irreplaceable part of our lives. But during my two decades in technology, I've never seen so many profound changes occurring all at the same time as what we're experiencing right now.

It's undeniable that work is very different today than it was just two or three years ago. We're interacting with larger audiences via social networks both inside and outside our companies. We're more open about core business processes like trying to sign a new customer, hiring and on-boarding employees and rewarding our peers. We're connected all the time via smart phone, tablets and even our cars. Work has changed.


The Future Of Work


At Constellation Research, our analysts help people understand these changes, prepare for them and execute on plans that can help their organizations succeed. Next month, we're joining Saba at their People 2012 global summit in Miami, Florida to present a complimentary 1-day workshop titled, "The Future Of Work." You can learn more about the event and register by clicking here.

Work is changing. Are you ready for it?

My Thoughts On Jive Software’s Jiveworld 2014
Mon, Oct 27th 2014 12:43p   Alan Lepofsky
Last week in Las Vegas Jive Software held their annual JiveWorld conference. In front of around 1600 people Jive talked about how their products and services enable people to "Work Better Together". Below is my analysis of some of the key announcements, including: - Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365 integration - A new view for "Top and Trending" in the newsfeed/activity stream - The introduction of Jive's WorkTypes tool - Analytics and insights, including a look at their fu [read] Keywords: application google integration microsoft office

My Thoughts On Salesforce Dreamforce 2014
Sat, Oct 18th 2014 12:03a   Alan Lepofsky
If you've never attended Salesforce.com's annual Dreamforce conference the first thing you need to know is that no single blog post or video recap can properly express the enormity of this event. It's huge. Gigantic. Enormous. For a week more than 100,000 people descend upon every street, hotel, restaurant, art gallery, museum and even movie theatre for blocks around San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center to participate in the spectacle. The event is part technology conference, part fund- [read] Keywords: collaboration notes application applications community development enterprise google instant messaging interface microsoft mobile wiki

Dear Citrix, I Want To Work Here!
Fri, Oct 10th 2014 9:33a   Alan Lepofsky
Yesterday I attended the opening of Citrix's new office in Raleigh, North Carolina. This new facility was built upon the foundation of an old factory and warehouse and will be used primarily by employees working on the ShareFile product family. But the scope of this building is much larger for community around it. Just a 10-15 minute walk from downtown, this new office is in an area dominated by abandoned warehouses. Citrix has spent more that 3 years working with local, state and federal of [read] Keywords: citrix community mobile office

Today Microsoft announced that the group functionality commonly found in social networking tools will now be available right inside the Office 365 Outlook client. As seen below, people can access their normal email Inbox and folders as they always have, but now below that they can navigate to the groups they are part of. A group is a place where people can share messages, files and take advantage of a group calendar. [read] Keywords: email microsoft networking office outlook

Infor is Hooked On Collaboration, Design and Data
Wed, Sep 17th 2014 11:23a   Alan Lepofsky
This week enterprise software vendor Infor held their annual customer conference in New Orleans. While Infor may not be a household name the way Microsoft, Google, SAP or Oracle are, they are a massive multibillion dollar company that focuses on solving specific business needs of over 73,000 customers. Rather than simply making CRM or ERP software, Infor focuses on tailoring solutions for specific industries. For example, 95% of the largest aerospace companies use Infor. As do 80% of the major t [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm citrix email enterprise google integration interface microsoft network networking oracle sap twitter unified communications

Remember those awkward teenage years when you were no longer a child but not quite an adult? That is where Box finds itself today, as it matures from a cloud based file storage and sharing company to one that is facing the expectations and challenges of adolescence. Last week at their annual BoxWorks conference, in front of 5000+ customers, partners, press and analysts Box set out to answer the life defining questions, "What do I want to be when I grow up? What do I want to do with my life?"

PeopleLinx Pivots To Social Selling
Thu, Aug 14th 2014 11:10a   Alan Lepofsky
Yesterday's launch of PeopleLinx version 3 represents an important evolution for the company, as they shift their platform from being LinkedIn-centric to broader platform for helping Sales Professionals do their job. When I first met with PeopleLinx, the company was focused on helping businesses improve their employee's LinkedIn profiles. The idea was that employees are embassadors of the company they work for and therefore their LinkedIn profiles should properly represent their employer.
