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?

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.

What Do You Like and Dislike About Mobile Computing
Sat, Aug 2nd 2014 12:40p   Alan Lepofsky
Love it or hate it, mobile computing is (has) dramatically changed the way we work. In my opinion, working mobile means more than just using phones and tablets, it's any time you're doing your job away from your standard office environment. Being mobile could mean using your laptop in your backyard or at a coffee shop. It could be virtual desktops shared from one machine to another, or via a kiosk. It could mean a screen in your car or in an airplane. It could be wearable technology like glass [read] Keywords: laptop mobile office

Everything old is new again... In response to my Tweet I find it amazing how many of the 2014 business goals for #socbiz are the exact same as the 1995 goals of the early Lotus Notes days.— Alan Lepofsky (@alanlepo) July 31, 2014 Joel Demay pointed out to me that Facebook's Graph Search helps you search for people, places and things... Which was the main focus of Lotus's ~1999-2002 Knowledge Management efforts. "People, Places & Things as the three essential ingr [read] Keywords: lotus notes community facebook twitter widgets

For SAP Customers The Future of Work Is Collaborative
Mon, Jun 16th 2014 12:06a   Alan Lepofsky
At SAP, collaboration is more than a 3 letter word. (Jam) In late May, SAP released the latest version of their collaboration platform, Jam. A week later at their annual SAP Sapphire event I had the opportunity to speak to several members of the Jam team. The three key themes I took away from those conversations are: - Integration Is Essential - SAP Understands How People Work - It’s Time To Build An Ecosystem MyPOV: These are excellent business focused areas that provide more su [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm lotus notes applications community development email enterprise integration microsoft mobile network networking office outlook sap sharepoint widgets wiki

Cisco Needs To Broaden Their Definition Of Collaboration
Thu, May 22nd 2014 1:50p   Alan Lepofsky
As I watched the CiscoLive! keynote titled Exceptional Collaboration Experiences in the Age of the Connected User, a line from one of my favourite movies The Princess Bride kept going through my head: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." In this case it's collaboration, as Cisco and I clearly have a vastly different definition of the word. We all know WebEx web-conferencing. Similar to Microsoft Office, it's one of those tools that is almost always [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm sametime apple citrix community desktop enterprise google microsoft mobile network networking office

Infor Mingle Provides Purposeful Collaboration
Mon, May 19th 2014 1:20p   Alan Lepofsky
New York based Infor may not be a household name the way IBM or Microsoft is, but the tech giant has close to 13,000 employees, 70,000 customers and $3B in annual revenue. Infor's main business comes from providing business applications (such as CRM, ERP, HR) to specific industries such as pharmaceutical, aerospace, automotive and healthcare. Leveraging their expertise in these "vertical solutions", they then then develop more granular applications, or micro-verticals. For example, for heathc [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm applications enterprise integration microsoft mobile network oracle sap

Look Up From Your Screen
Sat, May 3rd 2014 7:40a   Alan Lepofsky
This is another one of those great reminders, ironically shared by the medium it critiques. There are some brilliant lines in it. My favourite is probably "Give people your love not your like." The timeline section of meeting his wife, getting married, having a daughter, becoming a grandfather, then becoming a widow had me in tears. So when you watch something like this you nod and say "that's so true", but what do you do about it? Will you declare a "tech free" day at your home? Wil [read] Keywords: google twitter
