PSC Group is pleased to be hosting a broadcast of the IBM and Information Week "Masters of Collaboration" Event on March 14th, 2012. Our event will be in South Barrington, IL and will be from 11:15 AM to 3:30 PM. More about the event:
Every few years, advancements in technology and the evolution of business meet at the nexus of a cultural shift that fundamentally changes how business gets done. One of those moments is happening now â businesses are deploying exciting new collaborative tools to enable a more dynamic, increasingly mobile, and idea-laden workforce to create the new âsocial business.â People â and their ideas â have become central to the business again. And these social computing tools are enabling enterprises to tap into the collective intellectual capital of their employees, as geographically dispersed people are now collaborating and sharing ideas more productively than ever before across intelligent, interconnected systems. By connecting people and accelerating decision-making, social collaboration helps people deepen relationships, generate and share new ideas faster, and increase their productivity. To ensure that this new way of working becomes part of the DNA of the organization, many companies are turning to end-to-end collaboration platforms and embedding social business tools throughout the enterprise. In this multimedia event extravaganza, IBM and InformationWeek team up to present a series of globally-renowned experts speaking on key issues in their areas of expertise related to perfecting the social business. It all takes place within the framework of the latest in collaborative technologies to connect the experts with both a live audience and a virtual community. With these events youâll: Learn about the latest in social business tools, including opportunities to engage in on-site product demos Discover how the correlation of social capabilities with business success is increasingly evident as organizations create value by empowering âpeople networksâ, at work and over the web Network with other executive peers in the process of building their own social businesses and exchange ideas for institutionalizing these business-transforming processes Develop best practices for overcoming obstacles to organization-wide collaboration, including change-management policies, governance, and security enablement Discover ways to tap into the intellectual capital of the organization to promote increased business agility, innovation, and growth Connect with PSC Group LLC on the topic of Social Business and Collaboration
