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.
