Does Social Software have any value?
Arne Sigurd Rognan Nielsen    

If you are in doubt wether social software has any value for your company or not – do like you always do: Measure it!

Well, thats easy to say and more complex to do. Maybe that is the reason for so many managers say: – Social is a waste of time and money. We make refrigerators. What is so social about that?

They believe “social” is what their kids do. Facebook. Kids stuff.

But is it really? Why not give “social” a chance, read up on it, have a look at professional social solutions for businesses. And why not measure the value of it and make it a business case?

- How do I do that, you might ask. Easy. There is help. IBM has published a new White Paper with the title “Measuring the value of social software”.

The white paper looks at how to measure the effectiveness and value of a social software initiative, what tools are available to capture key metrics, and what to take into consideration when establishing a measurement approach.

  • Contents
  • Why measure?
  • Defining objectives
  • Types of measurement
  • Measurement levels
  • Measurement tools
  • Sample reports
  • Creating a measurement approach

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

Steve Ballmer leaves the Microsoft board and has started teaching
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 2:13p   Arne S. Nielsen
Just six months after Steve Ballmer left his job as CEO and president of Microsoft, he now also leaves his post on the Microsoft board. According to Ballmer he has “become very busy” over the last six months as he has purchased LA Clipper basketball team, focused on civic contributions, started teaching and taken up studies. To continue serving at the Microsoft board would be “impractical” as he formulates it. Ballmer is still a shareholder at Microsoft and says he will & [read] Keywords: facebook microsoft twitter

Rethink your social business strategy: Folders vs brains = 30 vs 70!
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 6:16a   Arne S. Nielsen
This presentation is made by a very skilled and dear colleague of mine, Louis Richardson, a master of storytelling and the art of making complex ideas simple and understandable! In this great presentation he is very thought provoking and points on the really important thing about utilizing the collective IQ of a company. Some creators of corporate social collaboration tools seem to forget that only 30 % of a company’s knowledge resides in folders and databases – while 70 % of the kno [read] Keywords: collaboration facebook twitter

What is social business vs social media?
Thu, Aug 14th 2014 7:12a   Arne S. Nielsen
What is social business versus social media? Today I stumbled upon a blogpost by Andrew Grill who explaines why he bets his career on social business and not social media. A great article. I define a social business in the following way… A social business is an organization whose culture and systems encourage networks of people to create business value Note the words I have highlighted: culture – people – business value. No mention of fans, followers, likes, Facebook or Twitter – just [read] Keywords: facebook twitter

Microsoft’s Yammer is not well integrated into SharePoint or other Microsoft applications
Wed, Aug 13th 2014 6:13a   Arne S. Nielsen
” Microsoft’s Yammer is not well integrated into SharePoint or other Microsoft applications, for example. You can get a Yammer feed into SharePoint, but can’t get SharePoint tasks into Yammer without writing code.”  In an interesting article in www.enterpriseappstoday.com on how to make employees to keep using social enterprise software, Mr. Tom Petrocelli, research director, enterprise social, mobile and cloud applications, for Neuralytix, emphasized the importance of [read] Keywords: applications enterprise facebook microsoft mobile sharepoint social software twitter
