Connections Certified – Finally!

Bosch opts for IBM Connections software – automotiveIT International
notesbusters    

Interesting article – shows that Connections is more and more in demand not only in the US but also internationally.

I find that some of my clients go the “Social Software” route to “get rid of email”  which is one way of saying they want their people to spend less time in their mail in-boxes and more time being productive and sharing knowledge. This is a very large change – a true paradigm shift that can pay off – as long as it is managed well and actually gives users what they need to get their job done. Change though, is never easy – I find my job often revolves more around how  to coax people into eversomuch (think snails) changing how they approach their workday and less around how to set up and configure a product.

Bosch opts for IBM Connections software

MARCH 15, 2012

IBM will help Robert Bosch provide its employees with social-media tools

Robert Bosch has decided to use IBM Connections software to deepen the integration of social media in its office procedures.

The German automotive supplier decided on IBM because the US based IT services and computer company offered a highly standardized package of software that is easy to use and can be expanded down the road.

“With IBM Connections, IBM doesn’t just offer a powerful platform,” said Josef Maichle, vice president corporate information systems at Bosch. “Based on its experience in the area of social business, the company has also positioned itself as a trustworthy partner for the changeover.”

Bosch in the past year evaluated how to implement social media software across its operations. It wanted to provide employees with the ability to form social communities and other internal cooperation tools.

Selection criteria for Bosch were functional areas of coverage, intuitive operation and the possibility to introduce the new software without having to make major changes to existing systems.

Ivo Koerner, vice president software at IBM Germany, said companies see the efficiency benefits from social media, but worry about the required shifts in working practices.

Said Koerner: “The change into a social business is a big cultural challenge for many companies.”

IBM Connections software provides employees access to everyone in a pre-defined professional network. The software offers moderation, blogs, a media gallery and other social-media tools that help provide faster access to information.

Open Mic Webcast : Linux for the IBM Sametime Admin (04/09/2014)
Tue, Apr 1st 2014 6:12a   Victor Toal
Marlon Machado posted this on the Sametime blog (link below) yesterday. Since there is allot of Linux all over the place, I suggest this as a webcast to listen to. If you still live in a Windows only server world, it is only a amtter of time until your boss tells you that there are maybe some Linux machines coming your way …. As you probably know by now IBM’s commitment to the Linux platform is broad and deep. That includes, of course, IBM Sametime. We’re steadily expanding an [read] Keywords: admin connections ibm sametime desktop development linux server

I had promised earlier this year to post more content (other than opinion and news) so I am now catching up on my promise. This post was inspired by a combined WebSphere – IBM Connections review review I did for a client earlier this year, along with some content from my IBM Connections admin training that I offer and that the same client asked me to give after they read my review of their environment. This is the first in a small series of blog-posts on security and configuration in WebSp [read] Keywords: admin connections domino ibm applications interface linux microsoft openoffice password profile properties security server websphere xml
