How a New Generation of Software Is Helping Colleagues Work Together
Alan Lepofsky    

On May 31st I'll be presenting at Enterprise.Next - "The Future of ITSM" Social Media & Cloud Computing. The event is in Ottawa Ontario and is hosted by itSMF Canada. itSMF is a forum for Information Technology professionals to explore methods of continually improving the delivery of IT services.  I'm looking forward to speaking to an audience that is responsible for the delivery of technology to clients, as these are the people who are really in the trenches.

Session Title: How a New Generation of Software Is Helping Colleagues Work Together
 
Abstract: If you are you still using email and file attachments to try and get work done, it's time to evolve your business toolkit. Learn how social networking and collaboration tools such as microblogging, wikis, and profiles are helping transform the way employees share information and help their organizations succeed.

I'll post my slides when I'm done.

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

Microsoft Begins Bridging The Worlds Of Email and Social Networking
Thu, Sep 25th 2014 9:26p   Alan Lepofsky
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

Box Hits Puberty and Starts the Journey From Product to Platform
Mon, Sep 8th 2014 8:53p   Alan Lepofsky
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?"

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
