  • + Business problem

    IBM Connections is a social business solution that engages and motivates employees - but it does not offer a structured way to manage valuable input that can be turned into ideas and concepts which solve business problems. By adding HYPE for IBM Connections, companies can provide an innovation management structure to the contributions in IBM Connections.

  • + Business opportunity

    Innovation is a leading topic for organizations today. By focusing employees on the key problems to address, companies can innovate faster and with more certainty. Social business applications like IBM Connections enable users to collaborate and communicate in a fast and efficient way, but the tools do not have the structure and workflow in place to handle ideas, and turn them into real business value. HYPE Innovation specializes in turning the power of communities into real business value. With HYPE for IBM Connections you can leverage the social engagement, focus it towards strategic business goals, and use the HYPE Platform to develop the results into concepts and projects that can be implemented. HYPE and IBM Connections allows you to combine the best of social business and innovation management.

  • + Return on investment

    By focusing on strategically aligned campaigns, users can be engaged in solving real business problems, producing ideas to solve key problems. Typically after running several campaigns, a company will see a return on investment. Firstly employees will be engaged and motivated to help overcome important challenges, and secondly, the ideas that are produced result in implementable solutions, which can range from new product development, to cost saving, to process improvements. These opportunities typically result in large return on investment figures.

  • + Competitive advantage

    IBM Connections allows submission of ideas by using its ideation blog. Implementing ideas costs money and time. As any company's resources are limited, you need to select the right ideas for your investment. "HYPE for IBM Connections" adds HYPE's best practice of an evaluation process which allows the innovation manager to carefully rate and select the submitted ideas. On top of this, the integration with HYPE enriches the idea submission phase by HYPE's best practices of innovation management.
