Our monthly IBM Collaboration Solutions community webcast is an opportunity to connect those who are passionate about social business. This last meeting of the year was extra special, not just because we got to hear an update on IBM SmartCloud for Social Business and IBM Docs -- but because I also announced the 2013 IBM Champions for Collaboration Solutions. If you missed the webcast you can access the replay video and associated files below. Thanks for a great year of community collaboration! It's a privilege to work with such a passionate and smart set of customers, partners and IBMers. I look forward to even more social business goodness in 2013!
Our first community webcast for 2013 will be held on January 22nd. We'll likely focus on launch of the new user group community and share news on the IBM Connect conference to be held the following week. Members of the ICS community will receive an invitation to the webcast. You can also watch this blog, our Twitter account or Facebook page for details on how to register for the virtual event.
