I'd like to invite those of you who will be at IamLUG 2011 in Saint Louis next week to stop by Room A on Tuesday at 3:30 PM. This year I'm going talk about how to help our customers make the transition from good-ol' fashioned collaboration into Social Business.
My session is titled Leveraging the IBM Exceptional Work Experience Suite on the Path to Social Business. I'll talk about how we can help customers replace linear collaboration workflows, which is what we've been telling them to do for years (remember Workplace?) with the more natural social interaction patterns that we use in our daily lives as they make their way into the enterprise. The trick to making this transition successful resides in enabling those social interaction patterns from the start. Enablement in this case means giving the people involved the means to find, reach and collaborate with each other using both, real-time, and asynchronous communication channels. I'll talk about positioning unified communications as the connective tissue that makes capabilities such as communities, profiles and Wikis context vehicles for enabling social interaction patterns.
Feel free to stop by. We'll have about 75 minutes to talk about these things. It's going to be fun.
