Apple to create stunning new HQ at Battersea Power Station
Wed, Sep 28th 2016 9:18a   Stuart McIntyre
Apple is to create a spectacular new London headquarters at Battersea Power Station in a massive coup for the developers behind the £9 billion project. The iPhone and iPad maker will move 1,400 staff from eight sites around the capital into what it calls “a new Apple campus” at the Grade II* listed former electricity generator. Its employees will occupy all six floors of office space in the brick “cathedral of power”, which is being painstakingly restored after 33 years standing derelic

BlackBerry to outsource development of smartphones, to focus on software
Wed, Sep 28th 2016 7:49a   Stuart McIntyre
“The company plans to end all internal hardware development and will outsource that function to partners,” CEO John Chen said in a statement. “This allows us to reduce capital requirements and enhance return on invested capital.” BlackBerry has been setting the stage for such a move for a while now. It has already released one phone, the DTEK50 that was essentially a rebadged Alcatel phone and has started offering up pieces of its phone software for use on other Android devices. Chen had

Did you know the origin of the brand ‘Slack’?

Yes. November 14th, 2012 (previous codename was "linefeed"): Re https://t.co/GbFbiofkWS pic.twitter.com/mhdkWk16o2 — Stewart Butterfield (@stewart) September 27, 2016 So Slack stands for ‘Searchable Log of All Conversation & Knowledge‘. Can’t help wondering where they’d be if they’d stuck with ‘Linefeed’ as their product name?!

University of Zürich – Sharing knowledge for 175 years…
Mon, Sep 12th 2016 11:09a   Stuart McIntyre
Roberto Mazzoni, Head of User IT Services at the University of Zurich, describes how the university relies on IBM Connections today to share knowledge with students, faculty and office administrators. We also learn about VAUZ, an association of 5,500 students and faculty at the university. VAUZ uses IBM Connections to share ideas and execute plans that keep the 175 year old university modern and on the latest technology. It was thrilling to hear Robert and his team describe the value they were

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 – 1860)

Like many long-time IBM Connections Cloud users, my muscle memory was to access the site via the lotuslive.com URL (the longest-lasting of the few brands that service has had over the years). Sadly IBM has now retired this, and so collabserv.com seems to be the way to go (my thoughts on that domain have never been particularly positive).  This is what you get when you arrive there – see the screenshot for full context: Maintenance Window In order to continue providing you quality servic

Speaking at MWLUG 2016: The Anatomy of the Perfect Use Case
Tue, Aug 16th 2016 7:18a   Stuart McIntyre
I always feel a frisson of excitement when arriving at an airport ready for an international flight, and the anticipation is even more evident when it’s a long haul trip. And so it is today, sat in the BA lounge overlooking the tarmac of Heathrow’s eastern runway and T5 apron. On this occasion I am delighted that it is Austin in Texas that’s the destination, and the purpose of the whirlwind 72 hour trip is to attend MWLUG for the first time. I first visited Austin back in 1998

Interesting multinational insurance ESN case study
Wed, Jul 27th 2016 6:14a   Stuart McIntyre
It’s always good to read a successful customer reference story, particularly when the organisation’s culture and productivity has truly been revolutionised by deploying a new internal community. This is definitely the case with this new case study, featuring UNIQA Insurance Group. Based in Vienna, UNIQA have grown incredibly quickly over the past decade, particularly via a push into Central and Eastern Europe. This has left them with a number of substantial challenges in terms of c

Document management in online communities
Thu, Jul 7th 2016 6:45a   Stuart McIntyre
One of the key differentiators between the community solutions developed by Jive Software and those from IBM and Microsoft (talking Sharepoint rather than Yammer) is the relative lack of focus on the requirement for document management. That’s not to say that Jive platforms do not allow the sharing and management of documents – far from it – but that instead, these are simply embedded within the standard content types and information architecture of the platform rather tha
