Bayer Medical Science choose IBM Connections for 15.000 employees
Arne Sigurd Rognan Nielsen    

It’s not only the German company Bosch that chooses IBM Connections to go social within their firewalls. Now also the worold known chemical company Bayer Medical Science (BMS) implements IBM Connections for their 15.000 employees.

At the start of this year, BMS had more than 500 active groups, co-called communities, that the employees had created out of their own initiative. Be it for departments such as IT, Accounting, Marketing or topics such as sustainability or women in the company, there are no limits to the imagination. Similarly to Xing groups, the initiators lay down the rules for access to the groups. These range from open communities that anyone can take part in and where everything is visible to closed invitation-only user groups that are invisible to non-members. That’s not all that difficult either, explains De Ruwe. “Starting a community takes 30 seconds and setting up the rules takes ten.”

The CIO himself sets a good example. He is now a member of 30 communities. And they don’t necessarily have anything to do with IT. What’s more, he has got used to hardly ever writing e-mails, instead posting many communications through Connections. “E-mails always go to a closed circle of recipients”, he says according to an article in CIO.de.

Delete email that is not directly related to you – and get more done!
Sun, Oct 12th 2014 7:15a   Arne S. Nielsen
Are you one of those who gets overworked and overwhelmed by all incoming and non relevant email? My own method is to not open unread emails until my most important to-do’s are completed. So often I do not open new email until after lunch. New email make me unfocused and disturbs me when trying to work my way through my to-do list. So I want to keep them out of sight for a while. One of my colleagues said this about my method on our intranet! When I am done I have a coffee as a personal gif [read] Keywords: ibm notes email facebook twitter

Having a client meeting but forgot your laptop? Trust your iPad with IBM Connections!
Fri, Sep 5th 2014 9:12a   Arne S. Nielsen
I left my home office last week to join my colleagues at the headquarter 1,5 hours drive away. Arriving at the headquarter I discovered that I had forgotten my laptop at home. Normally that would arouse a panic feeling being helpless being totally without a work tool. But did I panic? No. I fortunately had my iPad mini with a Logitech keyboard with me. With that tiny little tool and some of my social collaboration apps from IBM it was business as usual. I used IBM Connections, IBM SameTime, IB [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm sametime apple facebook iphone laptop mobile office twitter
