Gartner names Microsoft a leader in social software in the workplace:



'via Blog this'



Karl Tyler shared this on Facebook with this comment:- "It's official, IBM will now start using a different buzz phrase to "Social Software" as Microsoft now appears above them in the Gartner magic quadrant."



I have never seen a phrase that more accurately describe IBM marketing than this. IBM will always claim to adhere to standards but it will be standards that suits themselves and not the industry.  If they are not in a magic quadrant they will simply invent a "phrase" for a rehashed technology that will put them on a new slide. Well said Karl. However, that does not mean that Microsoft is any better.



Gartner names Microsoft a leader in social software in the workplace

Office in the workplace
Gartner is a technology research firm and one of their evaluation techniques are "Magic Quadrants." In a study evaluating Enterprise Social Software, they named Microsoft as a 'Leader.' You can see their quadrant for this study below.
Gartner Magic Quadrant
Microsoft, as a leader has shown the vision and execution in social enterprise software. The social software market for enterprise is defined by Gartner to focus on "virtual environments that engage participants across a while organization in creating organizing sharing information, as well as encourage them to find, connect and interact with each other."
Gartner favors Microsoft because of their integration of components of Office 365 and easy access to features of Exchange, SharePoint, Yammer, and Lync. Microsoft has also shown off a road map for products such as Office 365 which show deeper integration and enhancements. Lastly, viability - the interest and adoption of Microsoft products, such as Office 365, is very high.
Some cautions Gartner has about Microsoft is the change in architecture, which involve unanticipated migrations; a faster pace of innovation than some customers find easy to keep up with; and lastly, a complexity of product bundles that create confusion in choice.
Other leaders in the quadrant include IBM, Jive, Salesforce, and Tibco Software. However, Microsoft is no doubt pleased that they are the most upper-right in the quadrant. You can read the full study here.
This study shows how strong Microsoft remains in the enterprise market, and the potential for even more growth. Do you use Microsoft solutions in enterprise? How do you feel about the collaborative functionalities?

Whither IBM Part 2: Is Domino being silently killed? | The Domino Elf – Hogne B. Pettersen's Social Biz Blog

The dead duck. Thanks IBM! Not!Last week there was an online presentation co-hosted by TeamStudio and TLCC where IBM presented their roadmap for IBM Notes/Domino.I didn’t listen to the whole thing, I skipped some parts, because I could basically read the slides. In addition, they didn’t present anything new that they didn’t present at IBM Connect 2016. Nothing! Except one thing: You can now also use Outlook 2016 with Domino. Yay…To paraphrase a friend of mine in the Domino community:
