In a couple of weeks, I'll be flying to Boston to attend and speak at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Boston. I've been going to the conference for several years now and it's always a great experience. Getting a chance to meet others in the industry, share ideas, and learn from the community is tremendously valuable to me.
For the first time, I'll be speaking this year along with my colleague Suzanne Livingston. Our topic is:
Title: Setting Up Communities to Solve Your Biggest Challenges Location: Room 210 Date: Tuesday, June 19, 2012, 2:30 PM-3:30 PM
Abstract: User communities powered by enterprise social software offer a powerful way to drive results to your bottom line. This session covers the best ways to set up communities within IBM Connections to achieve a variety of results, whether it's increased sales, improved support processes, or faster access to expertise. Specifically, we'll show trends on how organizations are setting up various types of communities, such as customer support communities that lower costs by turning customers into support agents, collaboration communities that unleash the ideas and expertise, and more.
As Suzanne and I get ready for the session, we want to hear from you! I've captured two questions below and some responses so far. We would like to hear from you either via Twitter or simply respond in the comments below. Take a peek at the questions below:
