How about the Lotusphere opening keynote? Wow, right?! Nothing gets you revved and ready for a conference like a live rock performance at 8am. Thanks to OK GO! (@okgo) for an excellent performance. And then round it out with some inspirational advice from Michael J. Fox (@realmikefox) -- and don't bother asking, he doesn't know where to get a hoverboard. Not to mention, all of the big announcements and news that came out of it. Thank you to YouTube user DSkiedit for putting together this 60 second recap of the opening session.
ECM In Motion
Holey moley - are your feet tired? My feet are tired. Lotusphere and Connect had so much to offer that I found myself running back and forth -- sessions at the Swan, sessions at the Dolphin, demos in the exhibit hall, lunch at the verrrrrrry end of the long hallway, chatting all night with colleagues and customers and clients - hearing how YOU are all putting your content to work through social applications - it was amazing! Although it does feel good to sit down at a desk again, being here instead of there doesn't keep me from being social - how about you? In addition to our team's social media outlets (here on the blog, natch! and twitter @IBM_ECM), our team is excited about bringing Social Content Management and collaboration to everyone.
Did you miss a session? Tired feet couldn't keep up? Well, lucky for you, LOTS of the Lotusphere sessions are available via Livestream. Don't miss this video of Ken Bisconti, our VP of ECM Products and Strategy (@kbisconti) in a discussion with Tim Perry of Genworth Financial and Jim Engelking of Genus Technologies about what content and communities mean for YOUR business.
Ken also met with some Industry Innovators for a discussion about Social Content Management. Watch him here with John Mancini, President of AIIM (@jmancini77) and find out what it means to be social (hint: it's more than a Twitter account) and how your business should put its content in motion to gain the most value.
We hope that you had a successful Lotusphere and Connect and are as excited as we are about making your business more social and putting your content in motion. Let us know - what was your favorite part of the conference? How can IBM ECM help you meet your Social Business goals?
Just under a week until Lotusphere and Connect – are you ready? We can hardly wait! There's so much to see, do, and experience during these events that we hope that we can help you make the most of it.
After you've registered, be sure to visit http://www.socialbizonline.com and set up your schedule in advance. There are even some mobile platform apps (free!) available for iOS, Blackberry, and iPad to help you organize your time.
Be sure to include our sessions (below) and stop by ped 17 to see a demonstration of how ECM can help manage your organization's social business. Remember: Connect attendees are welcome to the exhibit hall for Lotusphere as well! Just swim on over to the Dolphin hotel and follow the signs!
