New IBM Champions Announced
   

Joyce Davis has just posted an announcement in the Social Business Insights Blog. You will remember that earlier this year, IBM announced 50 new IBM Champions. Joyce provides a great summary of what we look for in IBM Champions:

These individuals spend a considerable amount of time, energy, and resources evangelizing for IBM, sharing their knowledge and helping grow the community of users and business leaders focused on our solutions. As champions, they will receive an IBM Champion merchandise package (apparel and some cool gadgets!), increased visibility on IBM sites, invitations and discounts to IBM events, recognition at select conferences, and access to key IBM business executives and technical leaders. Visit the IBM Champion site to read more about the program and get to know the current IBM Champions.

While at the Lotusphere #ls12 and Connect conferences in January, look for the IBM Champions by looking at the ribbons in their conference badges. And, as you can imagine, MANY of them will be speaking at sessions, facilitating Birds of a Feather sessions, conducting book signings, being interviewed on video, and a number of other exciting activities. You might even be lucky enough to witness a group of them sing karaoke ("We are the Champions!") in the evening if you head over to Kimono's. Check out the Lanyrd page for Lotusphere 2012 for more information.

Once again, congratulations to the newly minted IBM Champions!!! (and stay tuned because nominations will open again for the next round in August)

Continental AG Goes Full Out with IBM Connections To Get Things Done Faster
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 6:13a   Luis Benitez
Last week, I ran into this video posted by Continental AG, a company of 170,000 people, which talks about their business networking event for their 450 social business ambassadors. Continental spoke at IBM Connect 2014 about their usage of IBM Connections. Continental brought the participants from 37 different countries to Hamburg Germany to start the conversation around how to improve the culture of communication and how to give employees a helping hand. To do this, Continental chose [read] Keywords: connections ibm networking

Mobile Comparison of IBM Connections & Yammer
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 6:16a   Luis Benitez
I typically get questions about how collaboration platforms compare, especially in a post-PC, mobile first era. The term was made popular by Steve Jobs in 2007 (though first coined at MIT), and 3 months ago Microsoft CEO said the company had entered the post-PC era. So mobile.. a critical capability. Can't be without it. It's essential. So here we are in 2014 -- a post-PC / Mobile First era, so let's take a look at comparing the mobile collaboration capabilities provided by IBM, with th [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm apple enterprise microsoft mobile office sharepoint twitter wiki

The United Nations Comes Together with IBM Connections
Mon, Aug 18th 2014 6:12a   Luis Benitez
Today I wanted to share this video which has an amazing story on how the United Nations uses collaboration and social business technologies together and apply them to solve world problems with IBM Connections. Salem Avan, Chief of Knowledge Management, shares how the UN charter of 1945 establishes how they are responsible for saving succeeding generations from the scourge of war. To do that, he says, it was required to take a collective approach. So, in 2009, they started take advantage [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm email

TemboSocial Plugs Into IBM Connections and Takes Ideation To The Next Level
Thu, Aug 14th 2014 6:13a   Luis Benitez
By now, I'm sure that you are aware of TemboSocial. They have been adding value to IBM Connections, the market leading enterprise social collaboration platform, and it's some great work and I've talked about them in the past. The first add-on they created was a bit over 2 years ago when they first introduced The Hive for IBM Connections, a social recognition module. Last year, they further integrated with the IBM Connections platform by taking advantage of new integration points and ext [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm enterprise integration mobile

The IBM Connections 5.0 Reviewer's Guide is Now Available in the iBook Store
Mon, Aug 4th 2014 6:13a   Luis Benitez
By now you are probably aware that the IBM Connections 5.0 Reviewer's Guide is available as shared by one of my teammates in the product management team, Albert Nichols. For a while now, I've been wondering how we can make this more widely available and perhaps add even more value to this great asset. Earlier in the year (if I remember correctly), I had heard that Apple had made iBooks Author a free app and decided to take that for a spin and see what I could do with it. And given the rece [read] Keywords: connections ibm notes apple email integration microsoft mobile outlook sharepoint

Today, IBM Connections Mail gets an update. If you don't know what IBM Connections Mail, let's catch you up. IBM Connections Mail provides a simple and compelling way to perform essential email and calendaring tasks right from IBM Connections. This is particularly useful as you can process your inbox with minimal context switching. According to McKinsey, when users switch from one task to another, it really affects productivity. Therefore, by keeping context switching to a minimum, you [read] Keywords: calendaring connections domino ibm lotus email exchange exchange microsoft outlook

Social Connections VII has been announced and it's happening in November 13-14 in Stockholm. Registration remains free so go and register now. Hey, you can probably even combine it with a weekend ski trip. Now back to Prague. While I was there, I met with the local team to discuss social business and my recommendations on how to make social business critica [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm lotus

Jabborate Brings Jabber and WebEx into IBM Connections
Tue, Jul 15th 2014 6:12a   Luis Benitez
This is one of those cases were timing couldn't have been better. Just a few days ago someone was asking me about the possibility to integrate Cisco's Jabber and WebEx with the market leading social collaboration platform IBM Connections. Anyway, then as I was catching up with my feeds I ran into a new presentation from Jabborate. Don't you just love it when knowledge comes to you instead of you having to go out and search for it? So here's the deal. There are 3 types of integration [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm exchange exchange instant messaging integration microsoft
