It’s time to Chime!
Wed, Apr 29th 2015 10:58a   Stuart McIntyre
After many months of following the progress of Jive Chime, first as a partner and prospective customer, and then as a member of the Jive team, it’s exciting to be helping to get the word out about a brand spanking new social communication product! So what is Jive Chime? Jive Chime is a messaging app that lets you quickly and securely connect with teammates on the go, to get the answers you need, when you need them. Nothing revolutionary there I hear you say?  We already have (insert th

Digitally-positive UK workforce let down by workplace tech

Fujitsu today published a study revealing a lack of digital services being provided by UK employers to their work force. In the Fujitsu report, ‘Digital Inside Out‘, 73% of employees stated that digital is vital to the future success of their organisation, despite only 45% of employees feeling they are provided with access to the technology services and applications they need to do their job sufficiently. A 29% of the working population admitted that their ability to do their job is

Some observations: The almost unbelievable resurgence of Apple is probably the biggest story. Microsoft and Intel have both lost almost 50% of their value over the past 15 years. The appearance and stellar growth of Google, Amazon and Facebook. You’ve gotta think that the acquisition of Sun Microsystems in 2009 wasn’t their greatest move (though the fact that the acquisition only cost $5.6bn when the organisation was worth $117bn 10 years earlier suggests that the decline was well u

I love my job. Seriously. I know that’s a cliché, but honestly, I love what I do. Since early 2008 when I started Collaboration Matters (which morphed into Social 365 back in 2012), I’ve been privileged to have the opportunity to consult for some of the most insightful and forward-looking organisations around the globe.  7 straight years of helping companies improve the productivity of their workforces through using social technologies; working with not-for-profit agencies develo

Is Europe leading the way on Social Business?
Mon, Feb 16th 2015 11:21a   Stuart McIntyre
Dion Hinchcliffe certainly thinks so: [I]t’s not lost on practitioners these days that many of the largest and most committed efforts with social business are now in Europe. The approach to IT in general in the region is certainly more pragmatic, yet it’s also clear that the evolution of the future of work and the new digital workplace is one the minds of just about everyone around the world right now. So, is social business the leading model for operating our organizations yet? Perh

Using random meet-ups to build relationships and strengthen company culture
Mon, Feb 16th 2015 10:29a   Stuart McIntyre
I love this idea… One initiative we’re trying at the moment is CoffeeTime. CoffeeTime is an app, created in less than a day by Daniel, one of our developers. It works by pairing people up randomly, to meet and greet each other, often with someone you may not normally interact with. It doesn’t matter what level in the org chart, or role each person plays. Anyone can be matched up for a 30-minute chat (though people can choose to opt-out, of course). It aims to encourage the cross-team c

Slack hits half a million daily users in its first year
Fri, Feb 13th 2015 2:31a   Stuart McIntyre
Slack turns one year old today. In its short but fascinating history, the startup has managed the remarkable feat of actually getting people excited about enterprise communication software. The company has more than 500,000 daily active users, and it’s adding tens of thousands more every each week. “That’s our primary metric,” founder and CEO Stewart Butterfield tells Quartz. “If you’re not using Slack every single day, you’re not really using it.” The chart above shows the peak
