HIPAA in the IBM Cloud!
Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 8:15a   Colleen Burns
Cloud computing has matured dramatically in the years since IBM initially introduced social, mobile, meetings and mail cloud offerings. Within the past two years alone, customers have reconciled many privacy and security concerns, and cloud adoption has soared. For IBM customers, this has been in part due to IBM’s cloud governance and controls at the center of our service delivery. This is a true tipping point—where even companies in regulated industries are adop [read] Keywords: connections ibm policies mobile security

Concrete Sunflowers May Bring Energy to Millions
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 9:12a   Colleen Burns
Did you know that concrete was invented by the Romans roughly 2,000 years ago? Think of the Pantheon, one of the most beautiful (at least to my mind) monuments in a city overflowing with stunning architecture. It was commissioned during the reign of the Emperor Augustus by Marcus Agrippa and its dome still holds the record as the largest ever built of unreinforced concrete. Yes, concrete. I was thinking about concrete’s ancient origins when Gianluca Ambrosetti, head of research f [read] Keywords: connections ibm

or, Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad Data? At work not too long ago I was looking for a particular statistic for a presentation. I found several relevant stats and perhaps not surprisingly, some of them contradicted each other. I was tempted to cherry-pick the stat that would fit best in the presentation, but my conscience wouldn’t let me take that easy way out. So I hunkered down for what I knew would be the arduous job of trying to determine which stat was considered the most [read] Keywords: connections ibm twitter

To help with the UN’s goal to raise awareness of issues such as food security and malnutrition, the Chef Watson team issued a food challenge to our beta user Facebook group: with the help of Chef Watson, create a tasty recipe using some of the most commonly wasted food items in your kitchen.

Define Your Social Ambition, Integrate with Cloud, Mobile and Analytics, and Break Away from Your Competition!
Wed, Oct 15th 2014 8:12a   Colleen Burns
In my role as social business evangelist, I spend a lot of time helping businesses adopt social across the organization. It was great to recently see that some of this has been paying off! According to the 2014 Business Tech Trends report, organizations have increased social deployment by 106 percent since 2012! (Watch full replay here to learn more about the study.) Integrating social technologies is a marathon not a sprint, but if you want to be number 1, then think of the number [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm community integration mobile

Brad Bird and the Shared Experience at the Heart of Movie Magic
Tue, Oct 14th 2014 9:18a   Colleen Burns
Readers of the Social Business Insights blog already know the power of sharing. Sharing information leads to efficiency; sharing expertise unlocks innovation; sharing data yields insights. In his TED@IBM talk “Dreaming Loves Company: Tomorrow’s Cinema,” Academy Award-winning writer and director Brad Bird explained how the shared experience lies at the heart of the magic of cinema. He was preaching to the choir as far as I, an avid movie-goer, was concerned, but it w [read] Keywords: connections ibm community

Every kid knows it: inventors are cool. It’s one of the things we want to be when we grow up, right up there with firefighter, ballerina or astronaut. But as we get older, we realize the improbability of having “Inventor” on our business card. Thankfully, Lisa Seacat DeLuca never gave up on that dream.

The Foundation of Social Business Is the Employee Relationship
Tue, Oct 7th 2014 10:12a   Colleen Burns
In all the (justified) excitement about social business, it's all too easy to overlook the employee relationship, which is the foundation for nearly everything you do. Whether you're trying to make your business social inside the enterprise, or to better engage the outside world, you're depending on your individual employees to build, maintain and leverage their social bonds. Remember the saying, "It's not personal, it's just business?" Today, the saying would be, "If [read] Keywords: ibm enterprise facebook linkedin network office twitter

Deeper Healing through Quiet…and Big Data Analytics
Tue, Oct 7th 2014 6:10a   Colleen Burns
Every hospital drama I’ve ever watched, from “Grey’s Anatomy” to “ER” to “St. Elsewhere,” at some point trots out the familiar trope of the patient with the arcane illness. It’s misdiagnosed at first and maybe it’s even partially ignored until eventually a lone doctor somewhere has a flash of insight and saves the patient’s life with a brilliant diagnosis.

How people make decisions and actually buy has shifted once again and three key trends are emerging: (1) Mobile sales are skyrocketing!
