Our friends over at UCStrategies, following up from last week's excellent UC Summit 2011, published a podcast interview with IBM's Caleb Barlow, following his keynote presentation at UC Summit 2011, discussing market momentum for IBM's social business software and IBM's partners in the unified communications space. Money quote:
"... at the end of the day, the things you do in social whether that is updating somebody’s Facebook wall, a tweet, or the internal equivalent on Connections, these are forms of communications, just like what you would have with a audio conference or video conference or a chat."
The IBM keynote, along with other updates from the event, have also been published to their site. UC Summit 2011 was a great opportunity to meet with unified communications resellers, consultants and other channel participants. And La Estancia Resort in La Jolla is a beautiful mediterranean locale to host an event, I hope it's there next year again.
